How to Downgrade from iOS 11 to 10.3.2 iPhone, iPad and iPod touch – June 5 at the opening of Apple WWDC 17 announced a new version of the operating system iOS 11. Registered developers immediately got access to the first beta versions of firmware for mobile devices, the participants of public testing will be able to try the novelty before the end of the month, and the final release of iOS 11 is scheduled for autumn 2017 of the year.
If you installed the beta version of iOS 11 and encountered problems with the system, you can quickly roll back to iOS 10.3.2 by following the instructions below.
Several important factors need to be considered when planning downgrade firmware:
- If you are downgrading to iOS 10.3.2, then you can not use the backup that was made on iOS 11 via iCloud or iTunes. You can restore the data only from the backup copy of iOS 10.3.2. If you do not have such a backup, you need to manually save all photos and other necessary information before rolling back to iOS 10.3.2
- Be sure to update iTunes to the current version.
- Note that the downgrade process involves a complete data deletion. Further recovery of data from a compatible backup can take a long time.
