Apart from the iOS 11 beta 1 and Beta 2, Apple released the first public beta of iOS 11 to public beta testers. Unfortunately none of the beta versions work like a charm. Quite a lot of beta users tend to uninstall iOS 11 and go back to 10.3.Many iPhone users are wondering whether there is a way to downgrade iOS 11 to 10 without computer. Actually it is impossible without a PC or Mac to remove iOS 11 beta installation. In this article I am going to share an easiest way to downgrade iPhone/iPad from iOS 11 to 10 on Mac. It is especially helpful for those who want to downgrade iOS without PC.

“I have iPad and I recently installed iOS 11 beta on my iPad. Now I see some battery issues and I want to downgrade to iOS 10.3.2. But I checked on the internet and shows that a PC is compulsory. I don’t have a PC.”

To revert to iOS 10 from 11, I recommend using an application Tenorshare ReiBoot (Mac) instead of using iTunes. Some iPhone users report that downgrading in iTunes can easily cause iPhone stuck on Apple logo/DFU mode. Tenorshare ReiBoot ensures 100% restore without stuck. Install Tenorshare ReiBoot on Mac and start iOS 11 downgrade without a PC.
