iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.2 Downgrade Update Available

Exactly one week ago last Monday, Apple made the much-expected announcement concerning iOS 11 at WWDC 2017. Thus, the new iOS is currently in its initial beta testing phase, although only for developers. It will also be available for the general public soon, so if you’re not a dev, you needn’t worry too much about it. Apple always makes the beta versions of new iOS available in their Public Beta Testing Program.

If you’re one of the lucky ones that already have access at iOS 11, then you might have already noticed that it’s not great yet. That’s only normal, seeing as the OS is still in its very first beta preview. It needs a couple more at least to achieve its full potential, and it will get there, we’re sure of it. In the meantime, if you want to downgrade back to iOS 10.3.2, here’s a quick how to for you.

Downgrading

iOS 10.3.2 is the last stable version of iOS before the beta iOS 11, so it’s only natural that you will want to go back to it. In order to do it, you need to have already backed up your iPhone or iPad before upgrading to iOS 11 beta. If you did this, then you can downgrade back to iOS 10.3.2 by simply using the Find My iPhone function in iCloud and a file for the latest stable version that you want to install, or iOS 10.3.2 in this case.

The Find My iPhone feature needs to be turned off, and then you shut down your device and connect it to your computer while holding down the home button. Plug your phone into iTunes or DFU mode and you’re almost done. Just hold down the ‘option’ button and select ‘Upgrade’. Yes, it’s that simple!
