iPhone Jailbreak: How To Downgrade iOS 10.3.2 On iPhone Or iPad
Nearly a month and a half after iOS 10.3.1 rolled out to the public, Apple has officially released iOS 10.3.2 on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. However, fans are already asking how to downgrade the latest iOS.
Reasons Why You Need To Downgrade iOS 10.3.2
According to 9ToMac, iOS 10.3.2 follows the March release of iOS 10.3 which includes Find My AirPods, CarPlay updates, Apple File System, and more. Apple also released iOS 10.3.1 in early April which includes bug fixes and security improvements.
Now that iOS 10.3.2 is finally out of its pre-release stage and is available as an OTA update via the Software Update mechanism within the native Settings app, it means one thing. It simply means that there will be a ton of users accidentally moving away from earlier versions of iOS up to the latest version.
Nevertheless, it is not necessarily a bad thing, according to Redmond Pie. After all, Apple has introduced a number of new and notable features into iOS 10.3.x meaning it's a very worthwhile update.
However, for those that have older but still compatible hardware, the update could prove problematic from a battery or performance perspective. But, with only iOS 10.3.1 still being signed by Apple, while the users can still downgrade from 10.3.2 using iTunes, the users can't downgrade to a jailbreak-friendly firmware.
