Step 5. Select the iOS 13.3.1 / iPadOS 13.3.1 firmware file you just downloaded in step 1.
Step 6. iTunes will now extract the contents of the firmware, restore it to your device and then verify everything with Apple. You may use this time to grab yourself a cup of coffee or just do nothing, whichever suits you best.
