Apple has just released iOS 10.3.3 which fixes a number of bugs and security issues. If you’ve already updated to iOS 10.3.3 but facing issues, such as unexpected lags, crashes, random reboots, and so on, then it is possible to downgrade back to iOS 10.3.2.
There are two ways to downgrade to iOS 10.3.3. Let's keep reading to find out.
Please take a backup of your iOS device using 3uTools, iCloud or iTunes so that if anything happens, you can recover your data from the backup.
