There are a good amount of users who have upgraded their iDevices to iOS 10 BETA and most of them are now stuck with this operating system. However, since this new operating system is currently in BETA phase, it contains many bugs and issues, which means that you will most likely want to downgrade your handset back to iOS 9.x.
Today we will tell you the steps that you will need to take in order to downgrade back to the iOS 9.3.2 stable version.
Downgrading from iOS 10 BETA to iOS 9.3.2
Here are the steps that you will need to follow:
- Download the IPSW firmware of iOS 9.3.2 for your iDevice on your computer’s desktop (make sure that you download the right IPSW file);
- Download and install iTunes on your computer that runs on Windows OS or Mac OS and launch it when the installation is complete;
- Connect your iPod, iPad or iPhone to your computer via an USB cable and let the computer install all the drivers that it needs;
- On the iTunes application you will see your iOS device and by clicking on it you will notice a “Restore iPhone” button, which you will need to click it while holding the left “Shift” key in Windows OS or “option” key in Mac OS;
- A new pop-up box will appear and it will request you to select the IPSW firmware file (you have downloaded that at the first step in this guide). To do this, just double click the iOS 9.3.2 firmware file that you have saved on the desktop.
Finally, you will notice that the iOS 10 BETA downgrading process will start and in a few minutes (depending on the power of your iOS device) your device will run once again on iOS 9.3.2.
HINT: During the downgrading process, we suggest you to not touch the device and just wait patiently until it boots in iOS 9.3.2.
