You gotta admit, you get all excited and shit whenever the iOS gets a massive revamp.

 

Right?

 

Especially for us iOS users, both you and I, we stand on the brink of any major updates that Apple throw at us, hoping to get a taste of what mother Apple has in store for us each year.

 

And for this year, it gets pretty special with the new iOS 11.

 

 

So if you’re thinking of making the jump to iOS 11, then just hold on for a few minutes because…

 

What if, in the end, you don’t find iOS 11 to be that great at all  and instead it is packed with bugs and errors?

 

It can be a bummer.

 

And coming from experience when all the hype about a new iOS is all around you it can be horrifying only to find once you jump in only to find that it’s so laggy, buggy, and just plain annoying.

 

Yeah. That’s where this guide comes in to save your ass.

 

This simple 2 minute guide will show you how you can downgrade iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.2 (which is the latest official Apple-supported version that you are currently at right now)

 

 

Note

If you want to try out the iOS 11 way before anyone does, you can try it out by downloading the iOS 11 Beta.

Just make sure to bookmark this page once you’re done downloading your new iOS 11 Beta just in case if you ever wanted to follow up to return back to where you are right now. 🙂

 

 

 

So let’s get right into it.

 

 

 

 

Things you need

 

The absolute best way to prepare before you make your big jump from your current iOS to a new one is by backing up all your data and settings using iTunes beforehand.

 

 

Now,

 

It’s is completely alright, if you didn’t backup before you made your jump into iOS 11. It would have made things much easier though but again it’s alright. 🙂

 

 

 

 

One for the future.

Make sure to keep Saint bookmarked so that you can follow up accordingly, quickly and safely when jumping between iOSs.

 

Saint produces high quality content and unlike other sites you find online, here you won’t miss out on important steps when upgrading to a new iOS, which can be utterly crucial for you and your important data such as your contacts, messages, app data, photos etc. before you make such a huge change.

 

 

 

 

Both Saint and Apple recommends that you specifically backup using your iTunes rather than your iCloud and then archive your backup.

 

The reason is because if you backup to your iCloud or if you don’t archive your backup, you won’t be able to restore from it if you wanted to go back to the current version of iOS.

 

 

 

 

Note

Take note that iOS 11 backups are not able to be restored to iOS 10. So that means if your most recent backup is from iOS 11 then you won’t be able to restore that to a downgraded iPhone or iPad.

 

 

 

 

I’ll guide you by the hand step-by-step on how you can do that, so just sit back and relax and follow these steps. 🙂

 

 

Here’s how to archive an iTunes backup and prepare for iOS 11.

 

Step 1:  Go ahead and plug in your iPhone or your iPad and then startup iTunes.

 

 

Step 2:  Now choose Summary and then select Back Up Now.

Step 3:  Wait for the backup to finish.

 

 

Step 4:  Alright! Now select iTunes, and then Preferences, then onto Devices. Over here look for your device’s backup.

 

 

 

Step 5:  Lastly, hold your CTRL key and click on your backup. Then select the option Archive.

You’re all good to go on now.
