  • iOS 15 Developer Beta and Public Beta have been out for a couple of weeks.
  • But, there are still some performance issues and certain third-party apps are not working properly.
  • Here's a guide for those who want to downgrade their device to iOS 14.

Important: If you have installed watchOS 8 beta on your Apple Watch, and that Watch is connected to your iPhone that’s running the iOS 15 beta, you won’t be able to fully use your Apple Watch, because watchOS 8 requires iOS 15. You can’t downgrade your Apple Watch yourself, if you want to downgrade your Apple Watch, you’d have to sent it in to Apple, they’re able to perform a downgrade.

How to downgrade from iOS 15 to iOS 14 with a Mac or PC:

  • Before we start, make sure that you’re running the latest version of macOS or Windows.
  • Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer with a Lightning or USB-C cable.
  • Enter the Recovery Mode, to do that, follow these steps:

For the iPad Pro with FaceID

Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Top Button of your device until your device restarts. Keep holding the Top Button until your device enters recovery mode.

For the iPhone 8 or later

Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Side Button of your device until your device restarts. Keep holding the Side Button until your device enters the recovery mode.

For the iPhone 7, 7 Plus or iPod Touch (7th Generation)

Press and hold the Power/Volume Down button at the same time. Do not release those buttons when you see the Apple logo. Continue to hold the buttons until your device enters the recovery mode.

For the iPhone 6s and earlier

Press and hold the Power/Home button at the same time. Do not release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Continue to hold the buttons until your device enters the recovery mode.

  • When the Restore/Update window pops-up, select Restore. This option will wipe your device and it’ll be restored to iOS 14.
  • Choose Install when you see the message that an update is required to restore your iPhone.

When the restore has been completed, you’re then able to restore your data from iCloud, or your Mac/PC.
