On June 22, Apple released the first beta version of the new operating systems. iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, although they are in the first beta version, they have incredible performance and fluidityHowever, after installing these betas, if we want to revert to the latest stable version, we can do that easily.
Recovery, restore and backup mode
Before starting the process, keep in mind that the iCloud backups made in iOS 14 are not compatible with those of iOS 13. Therefore, if we do not have a physical copy on our computer made in iOS 13 or if we disable copies in iCloud when updating to iOS 14, we may need to reconfigure our iPhone or iPad as new. That said, let’s see the steps:
- We are updating our Mac to the latest version available on > About this Mac> Software Update. We can use the beta version of Big Sur if we want to.
- We connect our iPhone or iPad to the Mac.
We are entering recovery mode, which will cause the device to display an image from a computer and a Lightning cable. To enter, we will press one of these key combinations:
- For iPhone 8 and later: Press and release the volume up button. Press and release the volume down button. We press the side button until we see the recovery mode icon.
- For iPad Pro with Face ID: Press and release the volume up button. Press and release the volume down button. We press the side button until we see the recovery mode icon.
- For seventh generation iPhone 7, 7 Plus or iPod touch: Press the Sleep / Wake button and the Volume Down button simultaneously until the recovery mode icon is displayed.
- For iPhone 6s or earlier, iPad with home button or iPhone touch sixth generation or earlier: Press the Sleep / Wake button and the Home button at the same time until the recovery mode icon is displayed.
When asked by Finder (or iTunes), we choose the option Restore.
- We are awaiting the end of the process and can now restore the corresponding backup.
Some notes on the process. To enter recovery mode on iPhone 8 and later and on iPad Pro with Face ID, the sequence of pressing and releasing the different buttons must be very fast, in a second or two we should already hold down the side button. Also remember that before displaying the recovery mode icon, all devices will reboot and display the Apple icon, we have to keep pressing the corresponding buttons and just drop them when we see the recovery mode indicator.

Easy, right? If we have been encouraged to try the beta of the new systems and for some reason we are not convinced, we have the option of reverting to the latest stable versions.
The beta version of iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 does not convince you? So we can go back to version 13
