How To Roll Back From Ios 11 Beta 1 To Ios 10
Apple on June 5 at the opening of WWDC 17 announced a new version of the iOS 11 operating system. Registered developers immediately got access to the first beta versions of firmware for mobile devices, public testing participants will be able to try the new product until 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 in the system, you can quickly roll back to iOS 10.3.2 according to the instructions below.
There are some important Factors to consider when planning downgrade firmware:
- If you downgrade to iOS 10.3.2, you will not be able to use the backup that was made on iOS 11 via iCloud or iTunes. You can restore data only from a backup of iOS 10.3.2. If you do not have such a backup, then you need to manually save all the photos and other necessary information before rolling back to iOS 10.3.2;
- Be sure to update iTunes to the latest version;
- Please note that the downgrade process includes the complete deletion of data. Further data recovery from a compatible backup may take a long time.
