Here's how to downgrade iOS 13.4.1 to iOS 13.4 (iPadOS included) on your iPhone and iPad in a few simple steps.
Downgrade iOS 13.4.1 to iOS 13.4 Today on iPhone and iPad Before Apple Stops Signing the Firmware
Apple released iOS 13.4.1 and iPadOS 13.4.1 just a while back and it is nothing more than a bug fix release. It fixes bugs related to FaceTime and Bluetooth and everyone should go ahead and install it. But, if for some reason you think you should stick with iOS 13.4 / iPadOS 13.4 then you should avoid this update completely. If you have updated already, then we will show you how you can downgrade iOS 13.4.1 / iPadOS 13.4.1 to iOS 13.4 / iPadOS 13.4. Be sure to do it soon though, as Apple could stop signing the firmware without any prior notice.
