How to downgrade from iOS 7 beta to iOS 6

ios-7-logo

If you had upgraded your iOS device to iOS 7 beta to check it out and want to downgrade back to iOS 6, then the good news is that you can downgrade. This is despite Apple’s warning which states that you cannot downgrade back to earlier versions of iOS.

Important points to note:

  • You will be able to downgrade back only to the latest iOS 6.x.x version (which is iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.3 for the remaining iOS devices).
  • Please take a backup of your iOS device to iCloud or using iTunes.
  • Please note that when you downgrade back to iOS 6.x.x, you will be able to restore back to iOS 6.x.x compatible backup and not the iOS 7 backup to avoid compatibility issues.

Please follow these simple instructions to downgrade to iOS 6:

  • Download the appropriate iOS 6.x.x firmware file for your device from the below links:
  • Connect the device running iOS 7 beta to your computer.
  • Launch iTunes and select the iOS device from the top right corner, to the left of the iTunes Store button.
  • Hold the Alt/Option key (Shift Key in Windows) on your keyboard and click on the Restore iPhone/iPod touch button in iTunes. Note: If you’ve Find My iPhone enabled then it will prompt you to turn it off before restoring your iPhone (it’s one of the features of iOS 7).

ios7-to-ios-6-restore

  • Select the ipsw file you had downloaded earlier.
  • iTunes will inform that it will erase and restore your iOS device to iOS 6.x.x and will verify the restore with Apple.

ios-7-beta-itunes-restore

  • Click Restore.
  • iTunes should now restore your iOS device to iOS 6.x.x.
  • After a restore, the iOS device will restart. You should then see “Slide to set up”. Follow the steps in the iOS Setup Assistant.
  • You can then restore your device from a backup if required.

That’s it. Please don’t forget to let us know how it goes in the comments and drop us a line if you hit any issues.

    I have upgraded to ios 7 beta yesterday. My battery was %100 late night. Today at 12 oclock it dropped to % 40 !! (in 12 hours). So I downgraded to 6.1.4 (iphone 5) without any problem. I had to put the iphone into DFU mode.

    • Javi

      If you stick to the native ios 7 apps, the battery will last 24 hs. If you use non ios 7 apps, since they are not compatible with the new multi tasking way, the device will get hot and the batt. will drain.

  • Global-iPhone-User99

    I know it says it will not work… but did anyone try to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.2 with an iphone 5 ?
    User with iphone 5 delivered with 6.1.3 (NE490LL) on ATT (from app store exchange)

      You won’t be able to downgrade your iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1.2, even if you have SHSH blobs.

      • Mosh

        typo, do a ctrl-f on “fimrware”

  • a

    okay i have a problem: i dont have a developers account and wanted to try ios7 and put it on the iphone5 with the restore button .. but now i’m stuck at the activation screen, cant log in because of not having an account but also having no idea how to downgrade .. any ideas? getting kinda desperate ..

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Follow the steps mentioned here to downgrade.

      • idoe

        how to follow the steps for downgrade? i also meet with this problem… coz i used shift+restore for ios7 and can’t pass the activation screen & also itunes can’t show the phone screen. only show the developer acc

  • ricardo lopez

    I was able to do a normal restore from ios beta 7, without having to download ios 6 on an iphone 5 factory unlocked. If apple leaves this option open the iphone can still be lowered to a lower version and still work. ios 7 most important feature icloud activation would not work in this case.

  • Steve

    Why did Apple let us do this?

    • John

      Because it is the beta release of iOS7. Apple still signs iOS 6 at the latest version because iOS7 hasn’t been completely released. Once Apple stops signing the latest version of iOS6, you can’t downgrade from iOS7 (with exceptions).

      • Steve

        exceptions ? does that mean people with be stuck without a working os if they stick with ios7 ?

        • anon

          no. you will however be stuck with a working beta os. enjoy

    • Dave

      Because Steve isn’t around to tell them not to.
      They don’t care about us , it’s all just sell, sell sell.
      They only care about their bank accounts and the almighty dollar , that’s it!

      • joe

        I totally agree with that. Now Apple is turning into wankers. OS X is now bad as well as iOS7

  • DJ MD

    I have enjoyed testing iOS 7 beta. :) I wish they would add QUICK REPLY in the final version… We text a lot here in the Philippines. I’m back to 6.1.4 now. I wasn’t able to restore backup because iTunes says my version now is too old. Lol I’m downloading all my apps now from appstore. :p When the final version of iOS 7 has been released, I will be able to restorebackup. I will have to wait till September. :p

    • sara

      i have the same problem and i think that i will wait till September

  • Tony

    ios 7 is nice, but the battery usage is a huge issue for me

    I got a quite annoying problem, as I just backup my phone under IOS 7, but when I realized the battery problem I downgraded to ios6.1.4. However I am not able to restore my previous backup under ios7, (i suppose due to compatibility).

    Is there anything I can do to restore the backup from ios 7 to ios 6?

    • Darshan

      I got the same problem any solutions?

    • Xymanek

      You can save the files of different apps and then put it back using iFunbox. Google it

  • randomuser9999999

    GUYS! after downgrading, you will have this problem (some) that you cant restore cause it’s not compatible or too old. all you have to do is go into the place where iTunes save the files you back up. select the correct backup file, find the text edit “info” scroll slowly, find the code software. it wrote “7.1″ delete it change to 6.1.3 and restore. DONE :)

    • Guest user

      iTunes says that the backup is corrupt.

    • CellUnlock.net

      Did you actually try this? I’m about to try it.

    • davis

      I did changed it to 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 and got the corrupted error but then i changed to 7.1 and it worked fine..thanks for the tip.

      I suggest anyone who get the corrupted ipsw error to change the version number one by one until it fits..good luck.

  • alex

  • timo

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Try using a slightly older backup to see if it works.

  • Jessica

    SOS! My iPhone rebooted itself and it says “We’re unable to complete your activation because this device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program.” Well, that’s true because I’m not a developper but I can’t use my iPhone anymore????

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      You will need to downgrade back to iOS 6.

      • Jessica

        How is this possible when my computer doesn’t recognize my iPhone?

  • Jango

    I can’t restore my information after downgrading from ios7 to ios6 its says the software is too old to restore from my last backup ! please HELP ME !! Thank you

    • Cotueny

      iTunes can’t restore these backups because the device has a lower iOS than the backup firmware. You can try program called Backuptrans iTunes Backup Extractor. It lets you open the backup files and restore data back to your device. Restoring from iOS 7 Backup to iOS 6 is supported.

  • Lissy4011

    I am going to do this but I have a question. Will I loose all my info? I had backed up my phone before upgrading so does it use that backup or does it keep whatever was on my phone even after the update?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      During the setup process it will ask you to select a backup to restore the device. Use the one that was taken before you upgraded.

      You will lose data from the point you upgraded to the point you downgraded.

    • sexxybeast (;

      you can also look up ways to do it without the Developer program on youtube it shows you how to do it for free

    • Renier

      you must restore to the latest ios for iphone 4 and that is 6.1.3. then when you are done restore your device to ios 6.1.3 then you must go to update and not restore (so you push shift and restore an=d locate to the downloaded ios7 of you), so you update your device to ios7 and that will take the whole step away of the registration to that developer thing.

      • Renier

        that is if you want still want to use ios 7 , otherwise just download ios 6.1.3 and restore then your phone will be up and working again …AND YOU MUST BE IN dfu MODE, hold power button and home button at the same time for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds release the power button but keep holding the home button.

    • Tim

      I am in the same situation. Did you get any advise?

      • Carl

        Put your phone into DFU mode and then restore to your 6.x.x back-up

        • august7042

          what exactly do I do? im having the same problem. what is DFU mode?

          • Kasey

            I had the same problem. I had a beta version of iOS 7 for a while and suddenly, it needed activation (had white screen). I could no longer access my iPad. I could not restore because Find my iPhone was on. Below are the instructions you need to do to downgrade and restore to iOS 6 and it worked perfectly for me. Super simple and you don’t have to go into DFU mode, only Recovery mode. (Make sure you have a back up compatible with iOS 6 if you are planning to back up.)

            1) Download the latest firmware for your device, most likely version 6.1.3 (6.1.4 for iPhone 5).

            2) Connect your device to your computer with iTunes open.

            3) Turn off your device by holding down the power button until black screen. Make sure the device is off.

            4) Now we have to go into Recovery Mode. Press and hold down both the Home button and Power button together. The apple logo should appear, but don’t release any of the buttons. After a little while, the screen should flash black. Release the Power button ONLY. Keep pressing the Home button until a window in iTunes appears saying “iTunes has detected an (iPhone/iPad/iPod) in recovery mode. You must restore this (iPhone/iPad/iPod) before it can be used with iTunes.” Click “OK”. You can put your device down, but keep the device connected to the computer.

            5) Now you should be able to restore your device. You should see a button in iTunes that says “Restore (iPhone/iPad/iPod)…” If you are on a Mac, press “Option” + Click “Restore (iPhone/iPad/iPod)…”. If you are on a PC, press “Shift” + Click “Restore (iPhone/iPad/iPod)…”.

            6) A window should open allowing you to choose the file you want to restore with. This should be the same file you downloaded earlier. Click the file that should pertain to your device and Click “Open”. A window should appear saying that iTunes will erase the data on your device and Restore 6.1.x and it will verify the restore with Apple. Click “Restore”.

            This worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you. Good luck.

          • Bill

            Worked like a charm….just gotta make sure you have the right firmware or else it won’t work.

    • anon

      pretty simple fix, you should activate your developer id

  • Nathan

    So, I was very keen to try out the new beta 4 on my iPhone 4S, and I’m going to be honest and say I’ve been a complete idiot.

    I downloaded B4 for 4S from piratebay and did the whole shift + right
    click on update thing in iTunes (which was all up to date) and
    everything progressed fine until on the second loading bar of the
    install screen it just froze, I freaked out and disconnected my iPhone
    and did a hard reset, now it’s just back at the loading progress bar
    sitting on nothing.

    I don’t have a developers account or anything, and I think I’m pretty screwed.

    Sorry if this isn’t the forum for this kind of thing, I just need some help!

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    • anon

      yep you’re screwed

  • Nique

    I just did it and everything is back to normal i am just waiting to see if my photos will all come back but they are starting to thank you so much—-NIque

  • ♤I’m A Heavy In My City♤

    None of you ass holes on this site complaining or crying for help about IOS7 are developers… If ur having problems and can’t restore remember it wasn’t for your ass anyways…, its not tht serious to be the first to have it…. Sept is right around the corner. Most of u are the reason why developers and businesses can’t profit cause ppl like u stealing the product… The Feds should be watching ur ass

    • Sue

      OH SHUT THE HELL UP . . .what are you ? the APPLE police?

    • Wow

      It’s not stealing the product you moron. It’s simply having an operating system a few months before downloading it for free.

    • Xmayne

      What are you talking about? How the HELL does testing out iOS7 cause businesses to lose profit? That’s not how it works, you retard. We’re not stealing anything. All we’re doing is testing out a beta for an OS that is going to be FREE anyway.

      Also, it takes about 0.2 more seconds to type “you” and “your” instead of “u” and “ur.” That fraction of a second is all it takes to not look like a complete dumbass. Some other things: “assholes” is one word, you overused and incorrectly used ellipses, “that” has an “a” in it, and many more errors that aren’t worth talking about.

      By the way, how’s 7th grade treating you?

    • C

      put it in recovery mode, hold down the home button and power button together for ten seconds/until the iphone is turned off. Then without letting go of the home button let go of the lock button. itunes will say that the iphone is in recovery mode and needs restoring.

  • Podge.

    After an erase (from failed password input) my iOS 7b5 would not let me back on the iPad. Since I do not have a developer account. I tried to put it on the computer to restore as described absolved and iTunes would not bring up any info to be able to restore it. The only way to get it to restore was to put it in DFU mode.
    Hope this helps some one

        Found a resolution. Make sure to back up everything on your iPhone first. Then on your iPhone, go to settings-general-reset all settings. Your phone will turn off and restart itself. Keyboard is no longer sticking. Luckily an easy solution. Good luck!

    I followed exactly the steps above, but when it comes to the point where you hold alt/command and click restore and select the 6.1.4 ipsw file, it says “firmware not compatible”. Even tried putting it under DFU mode, same problem. What’s wrong and how can I fix this?

  • Rebecca

    I was told this would not work after the release date to the public is it working now

  • Rebecca

    Will this work even though iOS 7 has been released to the public

    Hello.
    I have problem.
    Approximatly 1 hour ago my iphone 5 switched off and than it was written that activation problem and I have to go to developer apple webpage and register there.I think because of I have ios 7 beta version . So then I read different websites , they told to go back to ios 6.1.4 and I downloaded the file, but unfortunetly wasn’t able to install it , because Itunes told that I am not eligble to do it . What to do now , I dont know . Can anybody give advise ? Now I am downloading IOS 7.0.2 and going to try to install it, but not shure if it will work. Beside it I think my all information will be deleted from Iphone , because I cant back up it.
