How to Downgrade iOS 13 to iOS 12 Without Losing Data?

The quick guide to downgrade iOS 13 is here. Follow the given steps below and you will find your device on iOS 12.

One important thing you need to know is that this method is only working if Apple is signing any iOS 12 version for your device.

You can easily check the signed firmware’s for your device at any time on iPSW.me website. This site is popular over the internet. You can download iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch Firmwares anytime. I am also going to use this site for downloading iOS 12 firmware. Let’s do this.

  1. At the very first, Go to iPSW.me website on your computer and Choose a product.
  2. After choosing a product, Select your device. I am choosing iPhone XS Max.
  3. Now check the signed firmware and download it.
  4. Click the signed firmware to Confirm and Download.
  5. After downloading the firmware Open iTunes and connect your device.

  7. Now, Choose the downloaded iOS 12 firmware file and iTunes will restore your device in 10-15 minutes.
  8. Finally, activate your device if required and enjoy your device on iOS 12.

Now, do not update your device without knowing the final release. Final release comes with fewer bugs and much improvements. Also, you can turn off Automatic Updates on your device. For this, Go to Settings > General > Software Updates > Turn off Automatic Updates. This will prevent your device from automatic updates.
