If you have a jailbreak, then it’s better not to do anything and do not update the software so that it does not go astray. KeenLab Team demonstrated a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.2 during a security conference at MOSEC 2017. And the Pangu team demonstrated a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1. Since these were demos, we don’t yet know whether teams will release full versions of jailbreaks.

If you want to downgrade iOS 10.3.3 to iOS 10.3.2, then read the instructions below.

Here are some important points to consider when rolling back:

  • Check that you have the latest version of iTunes.
  • Rollback to iOS 10.3.2 is possible only until Apple signs iOS 10.3.2.
  • You can roll back the device only to iOS 10.3.2, but not previous versions.
  • Make a backup copy of your device throughiCloud or iTunes so you can recover your data in case of an error. If you need help, use our instructions: How to backup to iPhone and iPad.
