How to Restore iPhone without Updating

Can I restore my iPhone 6 without updating to iOS 10? iTunes said it would restore and

update to the latest software. I didn't find an option that I can cancel or pass it since I don't

want iOS 10. Can anyone help?

Usually, updating iOS to the latest version is the best solution for making full use of

Apple's operating system. However there are some cases you may need to restore

iPhone without updating. I refer to those cases where, for example, you are using a

jailbroken iPhone and you don't want to lose the ability to jailbreak. Or you are using

iPhone 4s and don't want to upgrade it to iOS 9.X which may slow down your iPhone.

If you find yourself in such a situation too, don't worry! In this post, I will show you a 5-step

instruction to help you restore iPhone bypass the update of iOS. Now, follow the steps

below to get your desired result.

Part 1: Restore iPhone without Updating

Step 1. Backup iPhone/iPad

The whole process includes erasing all data and settings on your iPhone, so you are

advised to back up the important data on your device first. You can backup iPhone with

iTunes or iCloud. And if you want to backup iPhone contents selectively, FonePaw iPhone

Data Recovery can help you.

1). Download the free trial version of the program on your computer (Windows or Mac)

2). Connect iPhone to computer after firing up the program.

3). When iPhone is detected, hit "Start Scan".

4). After scanning, you can preview all data one by one, including photos, notes, text

messages, contacts, app data, WhatsApp messages, voice memos, safari bookmarks, etc.

Tick the items you want to backup and click "Recover" to back them up on your computer.

Step 2. Reset iPhone to factory settings

Disconnect your iPhone from computer. Then, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase

All Contents and Settings. This will erase all data on your device and restore it to factory

Step 3. Plug iPhone back to computer including photos, notes, text

Once the reset process is complete, the iPhone screen will display the factory default

image and show the "Slide to set up" message. Don't start the setup process. Instead,

connect your iPhone back to computer.

Step 4. Wait for the unlocking to process

If you device has been previously unlocked, plug it to iTunes will reapply the unlock code,

allowing you to use the phone on other networks again. When a windows saying "An

update to the carrier settings on your iPhone is available. Would you like to

download it now?" appears, click "Download and Update".

Step 5. Restore iPhone without updating

After the unlock message, you will be prompted to restore your iPhone. Select the backup

you have just created and wait for the restoring process to complete. If you are asked to

upgrade to newer version of iOS, click "Cancel".


A jailbroken device may go into a bootloop if the users enable "Erase All Content

and Settings" under "Settings" >"Reset".So if you have jailbroken your iPhone, you may

want to unjailbreak the phone first with the tweak Cydia Eraser, which can remove all

traces of Cydia to unjailbreak your device. After you have restored the iPhone, you can

have the phone jailbroken again.

Mission accomplished! Now you have an iPhone reset but refuse the iOS update. But do

you know how to stop iPhone from nagging you about updating to the iOS 10? Move on

to Part 2.

:Tips to Stop iPhone from Asking You to Update

One of typical alert that we get after each iOS update is the "Install Now" and "Remind

Later" alert. It should look something like this:

The update alert comes up again and again. It seems like that Apple won't stop the

nagging until we get the update. For those who are sick of the repeated update alert, we

get some tips.

Tip 1: Understand Apple's iOS Update Method

Apple encourages every iOS users to have the latest version of iOS. To do that, the

company rolled out a feature named "Automatic Downloads". When a new version of

iOS, for example, iOS 10 is released, your iPhone/iPad/iPod will automatically download

the update for you, mostly at night when the device is charging. With the update

downloaded in the background, you are prompted to install it.

Tip 2: Disable "Automatic Downloads"

On your iPhone/iPad/iPod, go to "Settings" > "iTunes & App Stores". Toggle the "Updates"

option to off. This will stop iOS from downloading update automatically for you in the

Tip including photos, notes, text: If you turn on "Use Cellular Data", downloads are limited to a file size of 100 MB or


Tip 3: Delete the Downloaded Update

If you want to stop receiving the update alert, you have to delete the downloaded update,


Tap "Settings" > "General" > "Storage & iCloud Usage" > "Manage Storage". Then find

the iOS update. You can easy recognize it because it is named as something like "iOS

10.0.2". Choose "Delete Update" and confirm your choice in the pop-up.

Done! iOS 10 might be great, but it should be your call to update your device or not. Hope

you enjoy the post.
