Facing many bugs and battery issues after installing iOS 14 betas? here is how to go back to iOS 13
Obviously a user always wants to use the latest features and versions that are offered by the company. As you all know for the first time in history Apple conducted its WWDC event online and announced its upcoming technologies. The company has now launched its new iOS version in the beta mode known as iOS 14 for its iPhone’s and iPadOS 14 for its iPad’s. According to the company, iOS 14 will come with multiple new features and improvements including no full-screen calls, New App Library, and much more.
We have noticed multiple issues on popular forums that users are facing after installing iOS 14 betas on their devices. One common issue we have caught is the battery life, multiple users have reported about the drastic battery consumption and have many other bugs too.
Well, the users were informed before installing the iOS 14 beta that this is the very first public beta released for iOS 14, and it goes without saying that the typical warnings related to experimental software are still standing. Don’t install this beta build unless you’re ready for bugs, as the purpose of the whole thing is to let you test the new operating system version before it’s released to production devices.
So let’s take a look at how you can go back to the previous iOS version on your iPhone or iPad.
Restore iOS 13 on your iPhone or iPad
NOTE: All the data present on your device will be wiped
- If you’re using a Windows computer, you need to have iTunes installed and updated to the latest version. If you’re on a Mac, make sure your Mac’s software is updated by clicking on the Apple logo at the top of your screen then selecting System Preferences > Software Update.
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer using a Lightning or USB-C cable.
- Place your iPhone or iPad into recovery mode by using the steps, which are specific to your device, listed below. You’ll know when you’re in recovery mode when your device’s screen is black, showing a cable pointing toward a MacBook (like the picture at the top of this post). Your iPhone or iPad will likely restart during this process, but don’t let go of the button(s) until you see the recovery-mode screen.
- If you have an iPhone 6S or older, an iPad with a home button or iPod Touch sixth generation or older, hold in the sleep/wake button and the home button at the same time until you see the recovery-mode screen.
- For an iPhone 7, 7 Plus, or iPod Touch seventh generation, hold in the sleep/wake button and the volume-up button at the same time until you see the recovery-mode screen.
- For iPhone 8 or later, quickly press the volume-up followed by volume-down buttons, and then hold in the side button until you see the recovery screen.
- iPad Pro users will quickly press the volume-up, then the volume-down buttons, followed by holding in the top button until you see the recovery screen.
- You should see a prompt on your computer, letting you know a device in recovery mode has been detected.
- It will ask if you want to Restore or Update your device, select Restore. Your computer will download and install the latest official version of iOS 13 on your device.
- If you don’t see a prompt, you’ll need to open Finder (on a Mac) or iTunes (on a PC), select your device, and then select Restore.
