How to downgrade iOS 11 beta back to iOS 10.3.3

iOS 11 is officially here with a lot of new features and changes. Apple is currently offering its latest version of iOS as a beta for developers and users who have already enrolled in Apple’s beta program. iOS 11 has been gone through six beta updates so far with a lot of bug fixes and changes.

However, keep in mind that iOS 11 is still an unfinished “product” that requires more work to do. In fact, iOS 11 beta is not stable and contains a number of bugs and errors that make your experience less joyful. The good news is that you can easily downgrade back to a more stable version and wait for the final build to release this fall.

In this step-by-step guide, we will go through the steps to downgrade iOS 11 beta back to iOS 10.3.3. Before we begin, make sure that you already have the iOS 10.3.3 backup and the latest version of iTunes on your computer.

How to downgrade iOS 11 beta back to iOS 10.3.3

Step one: First off, you need to download the iOS 10.3.3 firmware file to your computer. You can download it by heading over to this link (make sure that you download the correct firmware file). Note that you can use any web browsers to download the firmware (if you use Safari, make sure that you disable auto unzip feature)

Step two: Next up, turn off Find My iPhone feature. To do this, you can head to Settings, select iCloud and hit Find My iPhone to turn it off

Step three: Once you are done, put your iPhone into DFU mode. If you now have an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, the method used to put your device into DFU is slightly different. If you need help, check out our steps below.

  • Plug your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus to a Mac or a Windows PC. Once you are done, open iTunes and then switch off your iPhone
  • Now just press and hold down the On/Off button. At the same time, make sure that you press and hold the Volume button.
  • Keep holding both buttons. Release the On/Off button while still holding the Volume button. If your iPhone’s screen remains black, you are done.

Step four: Once your iPhone has entered DFU mode, head back your Mac or Windows PC and hold the Alt/Option key or Shift key (Windows). After that, hit the Restore iPhone button before proceeding

Step five: Locate the iOS 10.3.3 firmware file you downloaded in the step one and then hit the Restore and Update button

Step six: Once you do that, iTunes will start installing iOS 10.3.3 on your device. Once done, you will see the Hello screen and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup.
