You Can Downgrade iOS 12 to iOS 11.4.1 for a Limited Time – Hurry Up

You’re here because you are completely unsatisfied with Apple’s new iOS 12 update. It’s completely normal. Many feel the same way because that’s how things are in the world of Apple. But the good news is this: for a limited period of time, you can downgrade iOS 12 to iOS 11.4.1 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is possible because Apple is still signing the latest release of iOS 11, which is iOS 11.4.1. Once it stops signing, and ultimately it will, you can’t go ahead with the downgrade process.

Before you begin, please make sure that you backup everything to a safe and secure location because a downgrade is essentially a clean install that will wipe everything off your device. You can take a backup using iTunes or iCloud. It’s entirely up to you which route you wanna take as long as your data remains safe and secure by the end of the day.

Also, before you go ahead, make sure you download the iOS 11.4.1 firmware file for your device from here: Download iOS 11.4.1 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch
