How to Backup and Recover Data Downgrade iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.3

iOS 11 system officially released less than a month, there have been several minor changes, has now been updated to iOS 11.0.3. The reason why the system has been upgraded so frequently is that it fixes some problems and some BUG. Some Ios users seem to think that Ios 11 is not as good as iOS 10, so choose a downgrade iOS system.

However, many iOS users should know that each upgrade or downgrade system will be accompanied by the risk of data loss. Therefore, it is recommended that every iOS user have to backup important data in order to upgrade or degrade your iOS device, so as not to be lost when the system is upgraded or degraded.

How to Downgrade iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.3 on iPhone and iPad

Note: downgrading iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.3 can cause data loss, including the removal of important data or everything on your iPhone or iPad. Thus it is critical to have a backup that is compatible with iOS 10 available before downgrading (one should have been made prior to updating to iOS 11 in the first place), this is because iOS 11 backups are not compatible with iOS 10 or other prior releases. If you only have a backup for iOS 11, then downgrading to iOS 10 may require you to update again to iOS 11 in order to restore from that iOS 11 backup. If you don’t know what you are doing and do not have adequate backups, do not attempt to downgrade or you may experience permanent data loss on the iPhone or iPad.
