As of now iOS 7 is now in it’s first beta run after the announcement in WWDC 2013 and what came along with that is a new work around to install it without needing a developer account. For those who ended up installing iOS 7 but want to downgrade to iOS 6, we’ve got a handy guide below for you.
- Download the latest iOS 6 version for your iPhone here and launch iTunes.
- Place your device into DFU Mode. Not sure? Try this:
- Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time for 10 seconds.
- After 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button and continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message.
- Once you message pops up saying that your iPhone is in recovery mode, press “Ok” and select your iPhone in iTunes.
- Hold down the Alt/Option or Shift key and click the “Restore iPhone” button.
- Select the firmware file you downloaded earlier (we recommend saving it on your Desktop) and click “Open” then when asked to confirm, click “Restore”.
- After about 10 to 15 minutes or so, your iPhone should be running the latest iOS 6 version. The official version of iOS 7 is set to release this Fall.
