With iOS betas, we have the advantage of trying the latest innovations of the Apple operating system before anyone else. However, despite having this advantage, it also comes with certain disadvantages, such as poor performance of the device we are using for it. Like Apple offers an option to test the beta to the whole public, it also offers an option to go back from iOS 11 to iOS 10.3 or the current version of the operating system.
How to downgrade from iOS 11 public beta to iOS 10 on your iPhone or iPad
The process of going back to the latest available iOS version other than a beta is quite simple. The only requirement is that the backup you have taken before installing the beta version. If you did not take your previous version that is iOS 10 backup, you will lose all your data and you must configure your iPhone or iPad as a new device.

Keep in mind that Apple is currently signing the iOS 10.3 versions, which means that at the moment it can be a downgrade from iOS 11, although there will be a point of the year where it is no longer possible, probably after the launch of iOS 11. If you have an older device or a device that is giving you problems, until the end of summer you’re in time to go back to iOS 10.3
