You can downgrade iOS 11.0.1 to either iOS 11 or iOS 10.3.3 right now on iPhone or iPad. This is a limited opportunity window which Apple will likely close soon.

Here’s How You Can Downgrade iOS 11.0.1 to iOS 11 or iOS 10.3.3.

With the release of iOS 11.0.1 yesterday, Apple introduced a new update that squashed plenty of bugs, making things snappier for iPhone and iPad users around the globe. But, regardless of what Apple does at this point in time, there will always be someone out there that will find a reason or two to stick to older firmware. If you you are one of those people, then you’ll be pleased to learn that you can downgrade iOS 11.0.1 to iOS 11. But that’s not all, since Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.3, therefore you can downgrade back to iOS 10 as well. So without further ado, let’s jump into the downgrade process.

Warning: Downgrading to older firmware will delete everything off your device including your settings. Be very considerate of what you’re doing.
