Cannot Restore backup after downgrading iOS 11 Beta to iOS 10.3.2 or former? Here are three essential methods for you to restore data after the iOS downgrade without limitation.

Question: Is there any way can help me restore the iPhone backup after downgrading iOS 11 beta with ease? I made the terrible mistake of upgrading my work iPhone to iOS 11. And I want to roll it back to iOS 10.3.2. But here is the problem: once I downgraded, iTunes would not let me restore the iPhone backup because a backup was created on a newer version of iOS.



It is common to see that iTunes backup couldn’t be completed or you can’t restore from a backup after you downgrade the iOS system. The new features of iOS 11 should be the important highlight, so many people may like to experience it on their phone. However, there are still some bugs that Apple haven't tested, so when people meet some issues they are likely to downgrade to iOS 10.3.2 or former.

After the iOS downgrade, how to restore their iPhone backup to their phone should be the most difficult question. Due to some restriction of iTunes or iCloud, you can't easily restore your iPhone backup easily, so here I'd like to introduce you some effective tool which allows you to restore selected files from iPhone backup after the iOS downgrade, and show you the easiest way to archive iPhone backup.


If you have downgraded and have synced data backup on iTunes or iCloud, you can use iPhone Data Recovery to selectively restore data from iTunes or iCloud backup. On the other hand, if you did not downgrade but want to downgrade, you can backup your iPhone with iOS Data Backup & Restore. And then downgrade your iPhone. After that, you can use the same software to retore specific files from the previous backup!
