Monday 24th June was the day that Apple chose to release iOS 7 Beta 2 to the developers, just 2 weeks after the iOS 7 was announced and the first Beta released, although only for the iOS 7 Beta 2 is for the iPhone and the iPad, both regular and Mini versions and includes several refinements, extra features and a few upgrades in the speed and performance department.
If you went ahead and upgraded to Beta 2 but now want to Downgrade to 6.1.3, here’s how:
- First you must download iOS 6.1.3 (links below)
- Make sure your iPhone or iPad is properly connected to your computer or Mac and launch iTunes
- A screen will appear giving you the option to restore or update – Press down the SHIFT key (OPTION for Mac users) and choose Restore
- Point to the iOS 6.1.3 firmware downloaded in Step 1
- iTunes will proceed to restore your iPhone or iPad back to 6.1.3.
