How to Downgrade iOS 11 Beta to iOS 10.3.2

Apple officially announced iOS 11 at WDDC Keynote yesterday. This new iOS version comes with a set of big changes, including a new design for the iOS App Store, a completely redesigned Control Center, smarter Siri, and much more.

Although the first beta version was rolled out to developers yesterday, the firmware still  contains a number of serious issues. If you have updated your iDevice to iOS 11 beta and are getting a lot of bugs, then it’d better downgrade back to iOS 10.3.2.

However, before downgrading, there are a few important points you should note:

  • Once you downgrade to iOS 10.3.2, you will not able to restore from the iCloud or iTunes backup that was done in iOS 11. You can only restore from an iOS 10 backup.
  • Ensure that you have already installed the latest iTunes version on your computer
  • The process will format your device, and then restore it from a compatible backup, so it might get longer depending on the size of the backup.
