Downgrade from iOS 15 to iOS 14 – Here’s how.

Even before installation, Apple warned you that you should only install the betas on devices that you don’t use every day. If you are still curious, you can return to the stable version of iOS 14. However, we would like to give you an important tip at this point:

If you’re using an Apple Watch and also have the watchOS 8 beta installed on it, then you won’t be able to continue using the smartwatch until iOS 15 is officially released and you’ve reinstalled it on your iPhone.

step 5: After tapping “Remove Profile”, you will be prompted to enter your device password to continue.

Important NOTE: If you follow our instructions and delete the beta profile, the beta will not automatically be removed from your device, but your iPhone will no longer be able to receive beta updates in the future until you install a profile again. The beta only disappears when Apple releases new official software for the iPhone. Alternatively, you can downgrade, but you may lose some of your data in the process.

How to downgrade from iOS 15 to iOS 14 on iPhone

If deleting the beta profile isn’t enough for you, you’ll need to downgrade. In this case, you can completely erase your device and then restore it, being aware that a backup made on iOS 15 is not compatible with iOS 14. If you didn’t create a backup before updating, you’ll either have to reinstall your system or continue the beta.

To downgrade from iOS 15 to iOS 14, you need a Mac or PC and should have the latest software installed. Connect your iPhone (or iPad) to your computer with a cable. Now put the device into recovery mode. This varies depending on the model:

Downgrade from iOS 15 to iOS 14 – Here’s how
  • iPhone 6s, iPhone SE (2016) or iPads with a home button: Hold down the home button and power button until you see the recovery screen (beyond the Apple logo!).
  • iPhone 7 or iPod touch (7th generation): Press and hold the power button and volume down button at the same time until you see the recovery screen (beyond the Apple logo!).
  • iPhone 8 or newer: Quickly press the volume up and down buttons, then press and hold the side button until you see the recovery screen (beyond the Apple logo!).
  • iPad Pro or iPad Air with Face ID: Quickly press the volume up and down buttons, then press and hold the top button until you see the recovery screen (beyond the Apple logo!).

A message will now appear on your Mac offering you an update and recovery. Select the latter option and your iPhone will be erased. A non-beta version will then be installed, but you still have to confirm this by clicking on “Install”. After installation, you can restore a backup you made on iOS 14.
