How to Uninstall iOS 11 Beta and Downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 / 10.3.2

While many people are searching for a way to install iOS 11 on their device without a developer account, there are plenty of individuals who has already upgraded their iPhone or iPad to iOS 11 beta 1 (as of writing this post). Just like you, I really like some of the new features that Apple introduced on stage today. However, since this is the very first beta of iOS 11, it might not work as expected.

Things may slow down a bit or a lot; applications can crash here and there, and more. For instance, every time I open the Messages app, it would take more than 6 seconds to display everything. If that’s no enough for you, try using it for more than a day, and you’ll be able to collect enough reasons to downgrade from iOS 11.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to uninstall the newly updated iOS 11 beta 1 firmware and downgrade back to iOS 10.3.2. Or .3 if you want.

Unlike the original installing process you can’t just remove the profile from your Settings app and call it a day. To downgrade back from iOS 11, you’re going to need a computer and iTunes installed. Make sure it’s the latest version. You can get it here from the official Apple page.

The table below shows the status regarding some of the most recent firmware.

How to Downgrade iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.2 for iPhone / iPad

  1. Click here to visit the IPSW Downloads page
  2. Choose your appropriate device and either iOS 10.3.3 or 10.3.2. Any firmware lower than that won’t be supported
  3. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app > iCloud > Find My iPhone > Toggle it off
  4. Connect your device to the computer and open iTunes. Trust the connection if prompted
  5. If you have a Windows computer, hold Shift or Alt/Option if you have a Mac. While doing so, click on the ‘Check for Update’ button

  7. This will bring up a window for you to select your .IPSW file downloaded in Step 1. Locate that and click Open

iTunes will start to downgrade your device back to iOS 10.3.2 from the new iOS 11 beta. This process can take awhile so sit back and relax. Once your iPhone is rebooted, you can go ahead and set it up as usual.

If you find any problems during the way, leave a comment below. I’ll try to help.

How to Delete iOS 11 Profile and Its Firmware After Downgrade

If you have successfully downgraded back to iOS 10.3, good for you. However, there is one more thing we need to take care of. That is removing the iOS 11 profile. This is optional, but many people brought it up in the comment section, so I’m going to address it in this section.

Even if you downgrade from iOS 11, the profile that you installed won’t be removed. This must be done separately. Sometimes, the profile will also download the new firmware for you as well. Even if you don’t want to update, it will still be there. That being said, you may find your device low on storage.

How to Uninstall iOS 11 Beta and Downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 / 10.3.2 3

Here’s how you can remove both of that on your iOS 10.3 device.

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Go to General > Profile
  3. Tap on iOS Beta Software Profile
  4. Select Delete Profile
  5. Confirm by tapping the Delete button

  3. Select iOS 11 Developer beta (mine says 2.17 GB)
  4. Tap Delete Update

Your iPhone or iPad storage should be in a better position now. Of course, you can always re-install the profile whenever you want to update to iOS 11 beta again.
