iOS 11.0.1 was released earlier this week, and Apple followed it up quickly with the addition of iOS 11.1 for developers and public testers. The update brings with it a bunch of refinements that is bound to improve the iPhone and iPad experience even further. But of course, we are dealing with beta software here which can prove itself to be unstable in certain corners. If you believe you have made a mistake updating to the firmware then you will be pleased to learn that you can downgrade back to iOS 11 or iOS 11.0.1 right away without much fuss. But the one thing you should know at this point extremely well is that the downgrade process will erase everything of your device, so make sure you have created a safe backup using iTunes or iCloud.

Basically, you have multiple routes to follow, and which one you end up taking is entirely up to you. Remember one thing though - there's no telling when Apple will stop signing iOS 10.3.3, therefore make your move quickly.
