Important Note: In particular, the steps for downgrading iOS only work for iOS 8 beta. Once you've upgraded to iOS 8 which will be officially released this fall, there's no way to downgrade from iOS 8 to iOS 7.

Warnings: Watch Out for iPhone or iPad Data Loss

Before you start the downgrading, it's crucial for you to note that you will lose all your data from iOS 8 beta, as you cannot restore from an iOS 8 backup on iOS 7. If you have an iOS 7 iTunes or iCloud backup, you are still able to restore from that iOS 7 backup when you are back with iOS 7.1.1.

If you have no backup at all, you could consider transferring all important iPhone or iPad data (including contacts, text messages, call history, notes, photos, etc.) to computer with the help of iAny Transfer before downgrading.
