- iPhone isn’t connecting to Wi-Fi
- Sudden restart
- iOS 10 consume too much battery
- and many more
I think it’s about time you revert back to older firmware.
You’ve done enough. We can only blame Apple for not delivering a smoother software update.
While the signing window is still open, I advise the less-experienced iPhone and iPad users to downgrade from iOS 10.
A little story
I have seen a lot of people regret not downgrading to their previous firmware when the new one isn’t working as it should be. Assume, Apple suddenly stopped signing the firmware; you will be stuck with bugs and no fixes.
If there is something you’re not happy within iOS 10, take this chance and go back to iOS 9.3.5.
How to Downgrade iOS 10 to iOS 9.3.5
- Download the .ipsw of iOS 9.3.5 from here (Pick your appropriate device)
- Back up your iPhone or iPad (via iCloud)
- Connect your device to a computer and open iTunes
- Put your iPhone into recovery mode by pressing and holding the power & home buttons for 10 seconds. Release only the power button and wait until you see Connect to iTunes.
- On Mac, press Alt or Shift for Windows users and click on Restore iPhone…
- Now choose the iOS 9.3.5 .ipsw you downloaded earlier
Follow the instructions from iTunes and wait until it’s done.
When the downgrade process completed, you will see the usual setting up page. You know, the Hello screen, entering Apple ID account, etc.
This is another way of saying that you’ve successfully downgrade from iOS 10 back to 9.3.5. Furthermore, this firmware is extremely reliable because it patches some serious vulnerabilities from the previous version. It will ensure you have the best security settings.
Don’t forget the backup
Oh, remember you backed up your data earlier? Don’t forget to restore it.
