Downgrading my iPhone 10R software using voice over and running macOS Catalina. Please help

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all staying safe and well. I am running the gold master version of iOS 13.6, and I hate it with a passion. I’m trying to downgrade using the Mac, I’ve downloaded the IPSW file, but I need to know what to do with it from there. Can some kind person please help me? I’ve tried to do it occasionally with other phones, and they’ve gotten stuck in DFU mode. Thank you

Hello,
I hope you are doing well. Here is what you should do. First, turn off find my iPhone. Also, please note that you won't be able to restore your data back after you downgrade unless you have a backup that you made prior to install the beta. In the finder, locate your iPhone. Then, go wher it says restore iPhone in the general section. Once located, press the option key and the space bar together. You will have a dialog box asking you to select your ipsw file. After you select it, you will have a window that will say that your iphone will be restore. Click on the restore button and let it do its things. You don't need to put your phone in dfu mode by the way. Hope this helps. Best regards,
Olivier
