A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Revert Your iPhone Back to iOS 14 Before the Final Launch

Are you encountering issues with the iOS 15/iPadOS 15 beta versions? If you’re looking to revert back to iOS 14 before the final launch, you may do so using recovery mode and a computer with the latest version of iTunes or Finder. However, reverting back requires a factory reset of your device, and any changes made since installing the beta will be lost. Read on for a step-by-step guide that will help you understand how to revert to the stable version of iOS 14.

How to Restore Your iPhone or iPad to iOS 14:

  1. First, ensure that your computer has the latest version of iTunes or Finder installed (for macOS users).
  2. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer using the appropriate cable and put your device in recovery mode. The specific steps for your device are listed below:
    • For iPhone 6S or earlier models, an iPad with a home button, or a sixth-generation or earlier iPod Touch, press and hold the Sleep / Wake button and the Home button simultaneously until the Recovery Mode screen appears.
    • For iPhone 7, 7 Plus, or iPod Touch (7th generation), press and hold the Sleep / Wake button and the Volume Up button simultaneously until the Recovery Mode screen appears.
    • For iPhone 8 or later models, quickly press the volume up button, then the volume down button, and then press and hold the side button until the Recovery Mode screen appears.
    • For iPad Pro devices, quickly press the volume up button, then the volume down button, and then press and hold the top button until the Recovery Mode screen appears.
  3. Once your device is in Recovery Mode, your computer will prompt you with a message indicating that it’s been detected. Click on “Restore” to download and install the latest official version of iOS 14 on your device.
  4. If you backed up your device before installing the beta and are using the same computer, you will be given the option to restore from your backup once your device has been reverted back to iOS 14.

How to Uninstall the Beta Version of iOS 15 Before Updating to iOS 15:

If you decide to continue using the beta version until the final iOS 15 is released on Monday, you can easily uninstall the beta version by following these steps:

  1. Open Settings, select General, and tap on “Profiles and Device Management” (or “VPN and Device Management”).
  2. Choose the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 Beta software profile, and click “Delete Profile”.
  3. After deleting the profile, you can then install the next public version of iOS and remove the beta version.
  4. Do note that you can only upgrade to a public version of iOS that is newer than the version you have installed.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can I revert back to iOS 14 without a computer?

No. To revert back to iOS 14, you need to use a computer with iTunes or Finder installed.

2. Will reverting back to iOS 14 erase my data?

Yes. Reverting back to iOS 14 requires a factory reset of your device, which will erase all data that has not been backed up.

3. Can I uninstall the beta version of iOS 15 after the final version is released?

Yes, you can uninstall the beta version and update to the final version of iOS 15 once it’s released.

Beta versions of iOS are often unstable and may contain bugs, so they are not recommended for everyday use.
