Downdating iphone

There are plenty of sites to choose from, including https://ipsw.me/ which helpfully tells you which versions are currently being signed. Now hold down the Alt/Option key (Shift on a PC), and click the Restore i Phone button.

Note: If you're reading this after the final version of i OS 11 is release to the public you will have only a short time to downgrade (in past years as little as one week after the initial release date - not the date on which you upgraded) before it becomes impossible without a jailbroken phone. Now navigate to the IPSW file on your desktop and click Open.

You can also back up to i Cloud to get a second chance of recovering your contacts, photos and other things.

To reinstall i OS 10 you need the relevant file for your model of i Phone or i Pad.

You can't go back any further, unfortunately, which could be an issue if your most recent backup was made while running an older version of i OS (even version 10.3.2).

Let's be clear: you can only restore a backup which was made while your phone or tablet was running i OS 10.3.3.

In such situations, you might prefer to revert back to a previous version.

But of course, there is no downgrade button available on the App Store.

Under Automatic Downloads section, ensure that Updates toggle is turned off.

Otherwise, the downgraded apps will automatically be updated to the latest version.

In such a case, you might find the old IPA in the Trash (Mac) or Recycle Bin (Windows).

Note: IPA files collected from external sources (like the Internet) might not work on your i OS device, as they might not be associated with your Apple ID.

In this article, we’ll explore a few workarounds to downgrade to previous versions of i OS apps on your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod Touch.
