Downgrade iOS 12.3.1 to iOS 12.3 – Here’s How To In A Few Simple Steps

If you’re looking to downgrade to iOS 12.3 for whatever reason, the procedure is fairly simple. Before we dive into it, do take note that Apple has stopped signing iOS 12.2, which means you can no longer downgrade to the build. However,  the signing window is still open for iOS 12.3, so do take hold of the opportunity before its too late.

Before you begin the downgrading process, make sure that you backup everything to a secure location. This is due to the fact that downgrading will wipe everything off your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch since it is a clean install from scratch. You can also backup using iTunes or iCloud.

Do download the corresponding iOS 12.3 firmware from the link provided before you head over to the downgrade process.

Step 1: Connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch to your PC or Mac using MFi-Certified Lightning cable.

Step 2: Launch iTunes and select your device from the top left-hand corner.
