So in this article, we will show you how to restore i Phone/i Pad without updating the i OS version.Before you start to restore your i Phone, you should first back up the important files on it.
You can download any i OS software updates for i Pad, i Phone, and i Pod touch without using i Tunes.
There are actually two ways to do this, the first is using the i OS device itself but there are caveats and limitations with that, and then there is the traditional method of downloading the update files directly from Apple without i Tunes, which is particularly helpful for those who rely on download managers or who are just encountering trouble with i Tunes automatic updates.
How can I perform the restore in i Tunes without having to upgrade my i OS? Restoring from another device's backup will update to the latest i OS the restored device can use.
The only way would be to restore from a backup initially made from that same device, using that i OS.
Examples are Kodi/XBMC, Snapchat hacking, Emulstors, You Tube , and how many more examples?
I am trying to restore a set of my i Phone5C backups I made in i Tunes to my i Phone4S. I don't want to upgrade it because i OS8 on i Phone4S will almost be unusable (the current i OS7 is bad enough on i Phone4S).
Upgrading to a new version of the i OS used to mean that you had to be in front of your computer, had to connect your i OS device to it, download the update to your computer and then install the update via syncing with i Tunes.
But if you have i OS 5 or higher, that's not true anymore.
I have tried doing this directly in i Tunes using its restore function, but when I do so, i Tunes forces me to update my i OS to 8.3.
If I refuse to upgrade, the restore function will abort and I cannot continue with my restore from there.
This tutorial will take you step by step through the process of downloading and what to select to achieve this goal that you would like.
