On Wednesday, Apple had released the new 8.0.1 upgrade to their iPhone’s for further correction of existing bugs but the problem has unfortunately worsened. The 8.0.1 upgrade from Apple has proven fatal to a number of iPhone users and they have complained regarding this matter. According to the affected users, after updating their Smartphone’s, they were facing problems in making calls, sending messages and touch user interface has also gone bugged. Besides creating problem for already existing users, this bug is said to might affect the current sales of iPhone6 and iPhone6 plus because of this threat. To prevent further contamination, Apple has disabled the 8.0.1 update from this source but for the already contaminated Smartphone’s, they will need to restore their iPhone’s back to v8.0 and here is how.
Steps to downgrade from ios 8.1 to ios 8.0
- First of all download the iOS 8 file with the extension of IPSW from any third party source.
- After downloading, connect your Smartphone with your PC and back up all your valuable data present in it via iTunes.
- Then tap on restore option and click on the already downloaded iOS 8 file.
- After sometime, this file will get extracted on your iPhone. For precautionary measures disable the Find My Iphone feature present in iCloud settings. Then your iPhone will get downgraded to iOS 8 but you will lose all the data present in your Smartphone. That’s why you had already backed up all your data which you can easily restore in ITunes.
Congratulations, your iPhone has successfully got restored to the previous version. Please wait for Apple to release next stable version for bug fixes.
