iOS 9.3.2 beta 1 was released just yesterday for registered developers and comes packed with bug fixes and performance enhancements. While the software doesn't strictly bring anything new to the table in terms of features, we're sure there will come a moment during usage of the pre-release software where one would want to downgrade back to the public build. If you're seeking to do just that, then you've come to the right place, as we'll show you how you can downgrade from iOS 9.3.2 beta straight to the current public build, which is iOS 9.3.1.

Downgrade iOS 9.3.2 Beta To iOS 9.3.1 Public Release

1. First and foremost, make sure you have iTunes installed on your computer. If you don't, then you can grab your free copy by going to

2. Once downloaded and installed, launch iTunes.

3. Download the iOS 9.3.1 firmware file made specifically for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. Save it on your desktop.

4. Connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch to your computer.

5. Select your iOS device from the top left hand corner of iTunes.

6. Hold down the left 'Shift' key (Windows) or left 'Option' key (Mac) and then click on the 'Restore iPhone' button in iTunes.

7. iTunes will now ask you to point it towards an iOS firmware file. Therefore select iOS 9.3.1 you downloaded in step 3 on your desktop.

iTunes will process the IPSW firmware file, verify it with Apple and begin the restore process. The entire process will barely take a few minutes and we highly recommend that you do not do anything else on your PC or Mac while things are in action.

Once the installation process is complete, your iOS device will boot straight into the welcome screen, asking you to set up your device the way you like it.

At this point in time we really wouldn't recommend installing iOS 9.3.2 onto your device if you're a non-developer. We're sitting at the first beta of iOS 9.3.2, and it's absolutely unclear where the piece of software is unstable the most, causing crashes in the most unsuspecting places.

If you did downgrade from iOS 9.3.2 beta, then be sure to let us know in the comments section below why you did so. We're suspecting you didn't want to go through the trouble of handling the beta itself, but of course, you might have your own reasons.
