by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

hey guys what is going on this is my Apple geek I'm here to help you understand your everyday tech one video at a time and today I want to show you how to downgrade from Iowa's 13 back to iOS 12 because iOS 13 right now is in its beta stages and if you watched my installation video you would have known that it is extremely unstable there's a ton of bugs even the features will be different by the time it's available to the public so if you have already upgraded to iOS 13 you might be looking for a way to get back to iOS 12 if you follow in my installation video you

Should have a backup made of your device on iOS 12 if you do not this process will erase everything on your device which is why backing up was so important this time around hopefully you do have a backup if you do we can go ahead and continue with this process all right so this process is quite simple it's basically in iTunes restore so if you know how to do that go ahead and just do that and it will take you back to iOS 12 but if you don't I'm here to help you a step by step first you are going to need a computer to connect your device to and it doesn't matter if it's a Mac or

Windows this should work on both a quick side note here if you're watching this in the future and you've updated your Mac to Mac OS catallena you will not be using iTunes for this process you'll be using find it for the process in general is pretty much the same but first things first you are going to need the IP SW for your device for iOS 12 I will have that down below the website is going to look something like this with a little penguin go ahead and just come through here and find your device select what what device you have for me it's gonna be the iPhone se download the latest

Version available for your device now if Apple ever stopped signing this in the future this process will no longer work but for the time being this will get you back on I was 12 so once you do have that file we can go ahead and open up iTunes connects your device to your computer via a lightning to USB cable if it asks you to open up your device and unlock it to trust the device to trust this computer be sure you select it and your device should be able to show up inside of iTunes if not just unplug your device replug it and it should show up in a menu

This now I have tested this the check for update button does not work so you cannot preserve the information that you have on Iowa's 13 you must restore back to iOS 12 which means it will delete everything so once you've given access for your computer to connect to your phone it will not allow you to restore the device if you have Find My iPhone turned on so if you want to turn that off go into settings go to your name up here hit find my hit go to Find My iPhone and turn that off its gonna ask for your Apple ID password and once you put that into Find My iPhone should be

Completely off if you didn't have this on in the first place don't worry about it but if you did go ahead and just turn that off now you should be able to restore inside of iTunes now if you're doing this on a Mac you want to hold down the option key if you're doing this on a Windows hold down the shift key and then inside of iTunes click the restore iPhone button it's gonna allow you to select the IPSW you downloaded I just navigate to where you downloaded that click on it click open it's gonna erase and restore your iPhone to iOS 12 point

3.1 and verify the restore with Apple so just go ahead and hit restore so this is gonna take a quick minute and I'll be right back when this is done all right so once this process has completed you'll be booted back to the setup screen on your phone where you can set up your device as new or restore from a backup whether you have that in iCloud or here in iTunes I'm gonna go ahead and just set this up real quick to prove to you that I am back on iOS 12 all right here we are we are now back on the home screen I'm going to go to settings scroll down through general about and

Here we are iOS twelve point three point one so guys that's how you downgrade back from iOS 13 to iOS 12 very simple process just like before if you ever plan on going back to an iOS 13 beta or any iOS beta make sure you make that backup in iTunes or iCloud or both before you proceed thanks for watching everyone tell the next one peace
