The iOS 10.1 comes with some improvements and new options, but it seems that there are some Apple fans that are not very happy with it. Some reports are saying that many users have reported that after upgrading their iDevices to iOS 10.1 they’ve noticed some performance drops. Well, if you are one of the users who want to downgrade their iDevice from iOS 10.1 to iOS 10, you’ve come to the right place as today we will teach you how to do it.
Keep in mind that Apple doesn’t officially support iOS downgrades, there is always a way to do it on iTunes. However, keep in mind that this can be done in a matter of days after an update is released. For example, you can’t downgrade to iOS 9.3.5 anymore, but you can still downgrade your handset to iOS 10.0.2 without any problems.
First of all, you will need to perform a backup to make sure that you don’t lose anything important during the downgrade process. We suggest you to backup your files on your Mac or Windows PC and, only after that, proceed downgrading your iDevice.
Downgrading iDevice To iOS 10.0.2
Once you download the necessary files from the internet to your Mac or Windows PC, you will need to unzip them. After that, you will have to connect your iDevice to your Mac or Windows PC via the USB cable.
Open iTunes and wait it to recognize your iDevice. Once it finds it, select the device and tap on the “Restore iPhone” button. This will open a new window and here you will need to select the iOS 10.0.2 IPSW file that you’ve downloaded to your Mac or Windows PC.
The installer will let you know that iTunes will delete EVERYTHING on your device and it will restore it to the iOS version 10.0.2. Finally, tap on the “Restore” button and this will start the downgrading process. Once the process finishes, you will notice that your iDevice runs again on iOS 10.0.2.
