Many users have expected the iOS 13 and now that it has been made available, although as a developer beta, they have installed it but the bugs and the issues are too annoying to get by. If you are one of these users, you might want to downgrade to iOS 12.3.1.
The below instructions help you downgrade to the iOS 12, a stable version, and if you made up your mind to get back to iOS 12, just follow them. Also, you have to complete a backup of the most recent iOS 12 because it is impossible to restore iOS 13 beta backup.
How to Downgrade From iOS 13 Beta To iOS 12.3.1
- Download the iOS 12.3.1 IPSW file on you Mac or PC for your iPhone from the link matching your phone’s model
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone XR
- iPhone X
- iPhone 8 and iPhone 7
- iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- Disable ‘Find my iPhone’ from Settings. To do this, type your name at the top, go to ‘iCloud,’ and then to ‘Find My iPhone’
- Set your iPhone in DFU mode
- Hold the Alt or Option key on the Mac and click on ‘Restore iPhone’ button
- Point the windows that appears to the iOS 12.3.1 IPSW file you earlier downloaded
- Tap on ‘Restore and Update’ button, and follow the given instructions
- iTunes will verify the package and proceed with the installation process. Your device will reboot while in the process, and after it completes, follow those steps:
– Let go of the Power button and keep holding the Home key until a window will appear saying that it detected your device as being in ‘Recovery mode.’
– Click on the ‘OK’ key
You’re now running the iOs 12 on your iPhone, a stable version. If you will want to test a steadier version of the iOs 13, Apple will release it soon, as the Public Beta version.
