You can see the iOS version here. This is iOS 17 Beta 2. If you have any iOS version of iOS 17, you can do this process of downgrading. Let's open the photos and see. I have some photos and videos. This should come after we restore it. It does not come directly. That's why we are following this process. You also follow it as I am telling you. 

  • Step 1 (Create a backup)

Now, you will need your PC or Mac. You can connect your phone to it using a lightning cable. Our iPhone is connected to our Mac. If you have Windows, you will need iTunes. If you have Mac, you can open the Finder window. It will show the name of your iPhone. You can choose it from here.

Now, you have to create a backup. First, open Manage Backup. You can see if there is any backup here. You have to keep in mind which backup you are creating and which is the recent backup. There are two options here.

  • Backup your most important data on your iPhone to iCloud 
  •  Backup all the data on your iPhone to this Mac.

There is also the option of encrypted local backupI am not doing this because my file was corrupted. If you want, you can do it. This will retain your health data and password.

  • Step 2 (Back up all data)

Otherwise, you have to backup all data on your iPhone to this MacIf you choose this and encrypt, you have to put a password. Sometimes, the password is wrong. Now, let's click on Backup Now. After clicking on Backup Nowa passcode will be asked for your iPhone.

You have to enter the passcode for your iPhoneThe backup process will start

  • Step 3 (Use firmware ipsw )

While your phone is being backed up, you can go to the website of your Mac, Windows, Safari, or Chrome and download the latest firmware. Here, you can choose the product.

  • Step 4 (Download  signed version ipsw  )

For example, I have an iPhone. After this, you have to choose the model. I have an iPhone 14+. You can choose the model from this list.  You have to download the signed version of iOS 16. You cannot install the unsigned version. You have to click on Signed Version. After that, you can download it from your PC or Mac. 

  • Step 5 (Turn off Find my iPhone )

Now, we have to go to the iPhone settings. Before we install iOS 16, we have to turn off Find My iPhone. Find My is written in your Apple ID. You have to turn it offYour Apple ID password will be asked. You have to enter your phone. Find My will be turned off. After turning it off, you have to open iTunes or Finder in your PC or Mac.

  • Step 6 (Restore iPhone)

Here, you have to press the option key on your keyboard. You have to click on the Restore iPhone button. After that, in the Downloads folder, select the downloaded IPSW file and open it. After opening it, it will say that your iPhone will be erased. All the data will be deleted. It will be updated to iOS 16.5.1. Restore it. I will tell you how to restore the backup later. 

  • Now, our iPhone has been restarted because iOS 16 has been installed. Now, we have to do the basic setup. Here, you have to choose your country and region. 
  • You don't have to enter your Apple ID or Passcode. 
  • Next, you have to go to Setup Manually. 
  • Here, you have to connect to your Wi-Fi network.
  •  After connecting to Wi-Fi, it will be activated. 
  •  Don't set up your Passcode here. You don't have to set up anything here. 
  • Don't transfer apps and data. Don't enter your Apple ID here. Forgot password. Don't have Apple ID. Click on Setup Later in Settings. Don't use it because we don't need Apple ID here.

  • Step 7 ( iPhone has been restarted )

Now, you will see the Welcome to iPhone screen. Swipe up. Now, your iPhone is completely bare bones. There is nothing in it. As you can see here, all the photos and videos have been deleted. Now, we have to bring it back. First, let's check the iOS version. We went to Settings,

  • General
  • About

  • Step 7 ( iPhone Successfully Downgrade from iOS 17 to iOS 16 )

In About, you can see iOS 16.5.1 has been installed safely and securely on our iPhone.

Restore The Data from Mac

  • Step 1

Now, in your PC or Mac, open Finder or iTunes. Here, you have to open your iPhone. If it asks you to set up as a new iPhone, or Restore from Mac, then set up as a new iPhone. Now, it's not asking for my Mac. Now, let's go to Manage Backups. Our backup has been created. But, this is an iOS 17 backup. We have to install it in iOS 16. It won't be installed directly. The file will be corrupted.

So, we have to click on Manage Backup. Here, tap with two fingers. That is, right-click on our Mac. And click on Show in Finder.

  • Step 2

Here, in Show in Finder, you will find a folder. In this folder, if you scroll down, you will find a file called Info.plist.

  • Step 3

Right-click on the Info.plist fileGo to Open With. Here, you will find a text editor. I can't find it here. So, I will tap on Other. Here, I will choose the text editor. It will come directly.

  • Step 4

Now, the text editor is hereEnlarge it. Here, we have to find it by pressing Command F. What do we have to find? We have to write Product. And, we have to write Version. Here, you can see Product Version. 

Here, it says 17. We have to write 16After writing 16, we have to save the file. The file is saved. Now, close it.

Restore The Data from Window

  • Step 1

 Now, for Windows. This is the Windows method. What do we have to do for Windows? It is a very simple process. First, download iTunes from your Windows. This is the iTunes interface. It is the same as the Mac page, which I told you about the Finder interface. Here, you have to press the Windows button and the R key on your keyboard. Or, simply go to the Start Menu and click on RunThen, this box will open. Enter the %appdata% and click on OK. 

  • Step 2

Appdata - Roaming - Mobile Computer - Apple Computer - Mobilesnyc 

After that, this folder will open. On the top, you can see AppData, then Roaming, then Apple Computer, then MobileSync, and then Backup. You will find this folder in that. So, open the folder. Here, you have to open the same file that we opened on the Mac. You have to go inside that.

  • Step 3

The process after that is exactly the same. Here, you have to choose the Product Version. There, it will be 17. You have to make it 16. Now, what you have to do is go to Manage Backup.

  • Step 4

You have to go to Manage Backup. Your backup is present here. Just click on Restore Backup. From here, choose your backup and tap on Restore. It will say Erase and Restore. It means that whatever is deleted in your iPhone, there is nothing to delete.

  • Step 5

So, just tap on Restore and wait for your backup to be installed on your iPhone. On your iPhone,

there is an Apple logo, whatever it is, you don't have to touch your iPhone at all. Here, the wire should not come out. You don't have to do anything. Just let it work. And here, all the data from your PC or Mac is coming to your iPhone. You don't have to turn off your Mac or PC at all. You don't need an internet connection because your backup is being restored on your PC or Mac.

Now our phone is restored. Let's go to Photos. You can see that the photos that were on our phone have come back. Photos and videos are the same.

And in our Settings, let's go to About and see what the software version is. So, the software version is iOS 16.5.1 has been successfully restored including the backup.

So, this is the way, friends, from iOS 17 to iOS 16 without losing data, you can transfer everything and you can also downgrade. That too, free of cost.

    • You don't need anyone's help.
    • You don't need to go to anyone.

It is important to have a PC or Mac. If you don't have a PC or Mac, then please don't attempt to do anything. Because the backup of iOS 17 cannot be restored on iOS 16. 

In case you modified the backup of iOS 17, as I told you, you went to restore it on iOS 16, but it was not restored on iOS 16. It got corrupted. In that case, 

What you should do is when your iPhone will be on iOS 16  ? 

Set it up. Reinstall iOS 17 in it again.

How to do it?

  • Go to Settings-General-About-Software-Update.
  • choose the beta version.
  • And you have to download and install it from there.


And after that, the backup of iOS 17 which failed after modifying, modify it again. Restore it to iOS 16-17. And put it back on your phone again. Because these are beta versions and there can be a problem in this. Your iPhone's backup can also get corrupted.

So, in this case, your data will not be lost. This is the safest and simplest method. And let me tell you one more thing.

If you are afraid to do all this, then stay on iOS 17. iOS 17 is not that bad anymore. And it will start improving gradually.
