How to downgrade from iOS 14 to iOS 13
Keep in mind that if you have already installed watchOS 7 beta on a device connected to an iPhone running iOS 14, you will not be able to use your mobile after the downgrade.
Downgrade from iOS 14 Developer Beta to iOS 13 with a Mac
If you want to downgrade immediately from iOS 14 Developer Beta, you will need to restore your iPhone or iPad. With this option, you usually won't be able to restore from a backup made on iOS 14 by reverting to iOS 13. But naturally, you can restore from a previous iOS 13 backup.
Step 1: Make sure you are running the latest version of macOS (> About This Mac> Software Update).
Step 2: Connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac or PC with a Lightning or USB-C cable.
Step 3: Use the correct method from the list below to make your device enter recovery mode (you will see a computer logo and a lightning cable if successful).
- For iPad Pro with Face ID : Press and quickly release the volume up button. Press and quickly release the volume down button. Press and hold the Up button until your device starts to restart. Continue to hold the Up button until your device enters recovery mode.
- For iPhone 8 or later : Press and quickly release the volume up button. Press and quickly release the volume down button. Then press and hold the side button until you see the recovery mode screen.
- For iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus or iPod touch (7th generation) : Press and hold the Sleep / Wake and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Do not release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Continue to hold both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
- For iPhone 6s and earlier, iPad with home button, or iPod touch (6th generation or earlier) : Simultaneously press the Sleep / Wake and Home buttons. Do not release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Continue to hold both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
Step 4: When the Restore / Update option appears on your Mac or PC, choose Restore (this will erase your device and install the latest non-beta version of iOS).
Step 5: Once the software restore is complete, you can restore a backup from iOS 13 with your Mac or iCloud (or set up your iPhone or iPad as a new device).
