How to Downgrade from iOS 11.1 Beta to iOS 11

Published

Do you need to downgrade from the iOS 11.1 beta to iOS 11 because you ran into iOS 11.1 beta problems or simply need a more stable experience until closer to the iOS 11.1 release date we expect November? We’ll walk you through how to downgrade from the iOS 11.1 beta to iOS 11 or iOS 11.0.1 after you’re done playing with the new iOS 11 features.

It’s easy to go back to iOS 11 or iOS 11.0.1, and for a limited time you can still downgrade to iOS 10.3.3. You need to follow the directions closely because there is a very important step that is essential to downgrading. This process works for the developer preview and the public iOS 11 beta.

Some people ran into problems with the iOS 11 downgrade, but that shouldn’t be an issue with the iOS 11.1 beta. When you downgrade from one version of iOS to another, you must erase the iPhone or iPad completely. You also must restore a backup made on iOS 10 after you downgrade to iOS 10, so you may be missing a little bit of information if you try the iOS 11 beta for more than a few days.

Plan to spend at least 20 minutes, possibly longer when you downgrade to iOS 10 from the iOS 11 beta. That does not include the time it takes to restore from backup, which could add an hour or more.

How to Downgrade From iOS 11.1 Beta to iOS 11

This process is simple to do, you just need to follow the directions one step at a time so that you don’t miss anything. We’ll walk you through how to enter Recovery Mode and then how to use iTunes to downgrade to iOS 11. You need a computer for this to work, so you may need to borrow one if you are fully switched over to the iPhone and iPad world.

When you see this message in iTunes you are ready to downgrade from the iOS 11.1 beta to iOS 11.

When you see this message in iTunes you are ready to downgrade from the iOS 11.1 beta to iOS 11.

  1. Put your iPhone into Recovery Mode. Turn the iPhone or iPad off.
  2. On the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, hold volume down, on all other iPhones and iPas hold the home button. Plug your iPhone into your computer with iTunes running. When you see the Connect to iTunes screen you can let go of the volume or home button.
  3. iTunes should identify the iPhone is in Recovery Mode, show a pop-up and offer to Restore the iPhone or iPad.
  4. When prompted choose to Restore and Update your iPhone or iPad. This will download the latest official release of iOS 11, erase your iPhone and install this version.

In 15 to 30 minutes the process will complete and you can restore from an iOS 11 or older backup to get back to where you were before you tried the iOS 11.1 beta. You can perform this process up until the iOS 11.1 official release later this year.

The iOS 11.4 update added Messages in iCloud and AirPlay 2, but it also brought issues along with it. The iOS 11.4.1 update keeps these long anticipated features and includes fixes for some iOS 11.4 problems. 

Specifically the iOS 11.4.1 update;

  • Fixes an issue that prevented some users from viewing the last known location of their AirPods in Find My iPhone. 
  • Improves reliability of syncing mail, contacts and notes with Exchange accounts.  

This update also includes other bug fixes and security upgrades. It's possible that this update includes a fix for bad iOS 11.4 battery life. 

Messages in the Cloud allows you to backup your iMessage conversations to the cloud just like you back up your notes, contacts and photos. This means they are backed up in case something happens to your phone, but that's not all. 

Messages in the Cloud syncs deleted messages and threads across your iCloud devices. This means everything will show up the same across your Apple devices. With this in place you should see the same conversations everywhere, all of the time. 

This also backs up the photos and attachments in the cloud so you have more room on your iPhone or iPad. When you get a new device all of the messages sync to that device so you don't lose anything.
