How to downgrade from iOS 10.2 to iOS 10.1.1 on iPhone and iPad

Apple has recently launched a new version of its mobile operating system: iOS 10.2 . This new firmware provides very interesting developments as the introduction of new and renovated emoji, the arrival of the TV application, or SOS functionality.

However, not everyone is satisfied with the performance of IOS 10.2 on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch due to connectivity issues, slowing or battery life.

If that is the case, in this simple tutorial we will explain a method to downgrade iOS iOS 10.2 to 10.1.1. Returning to a newer version of iOS is likely to cause technical issues to disappear.

Before starting, it is noteworthy to mention that Apple may stop signing iOS iOS 10.1 and 10.1.1 shortly after the release of IOS 10.2. So if you are thinking of moving to an older version we recommend you do it as soon as possible.

Before the downgrade from iOS 10.2 to iOS 10.1.1 ...

To prepare your device for the uninstallation of iOS 10.2 and later installation of iOS 10.1.1 you must follow a couple of steps. The first thing is to make sure you've updated iTunes to its latest version.

Then you need to back up your iPhone or your iPad via iTunes. If the downgrade is not performed correctly for any reason, you could lose all your photos, videos, contacts, apps, etc, if you miss this step. The next thing you want to do is disable these functions:

  • Security code
  • Touch ID
  • Search for my iPhone

Downgrade from iOS 10.2 to iOS 10.1.1

1. Download the firmware iOS 10.1.1 .

2. Make sure you have downloaded the appropriate version to your device.

3. Connect your iPhone / iPad to PC / Mac via USB.

4. Open iTunes.

5. access your device.

6. Enter DFU mode by simultaneously pressing the Home button and the lock button.

7. When the Apple logo on the display device releases the lock button on your iPhone or your iPad appears. 8. Wait until the iTunes logo appears and release the Home button.

9. Hold down the Shift (Windows) or Alt (Mac) key and press the Restore button in iTunes.

10. Explore in your files and select the firmware iOS 10.1.1 you have previously downloaded in Step 1 of this tutorial.

11. Follow the instructions and wait for the process to finish.

We hope this tutorial has helped you. Remember, you can only downgrade if Apple continues to sign iOS 10.1.1. If you have any questions or concerns, we invite you to participate in the comments section. We will be happy to help!
