Restore ipod without updating version

Luckily, switching from the i OS beta to a stable public release isn’t terribly difficult.

i OS 12 comes with some amazing new features, like ARKit 2, Group Face Time, and Memoji but it's still in the beta stages.

If you still want to proceed, downgrading from the i OS 12 beta will be easier than downgrading from the full public version; i OS 11.4 is still the newest and current officially supported operating system (i OS 12 hasn't launched officially yet) and will therefore be the software your i Phone or i Pad will be restored to if you select the i Tunes option to Restore and Update. The only issue is that you'll have to restore from a pre-i OS 12 backup (here's how to back up an i Pad or i Phone), so any data or preferences you've saved since then will be lost - and if you haven't got an archived backup from your i OS 11 days (as Apple suggests doing before upgrading), you won't be able to restore your data at all.

If you’re eager to get it up and running on your i Phone, you’re not the only one.

But first, you need to make sure your device is capable of running it.

If your device reboots to the beta of i OS 12 before the download is complete, simply repeat the steps above and put it back into Recovery Mode.

Once the download is complete, i Tunes will restore your i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch to the older version of i OS.

There are a few ways to restore an i Phone that won't turn on, and when it happened to us, we ultimately had to have the i Phone replaced.
