Downgrading iOS has never been supported, so you can't.



I'm sure you'll adjust to the new iOS. Things always change with every new iOS release. Most of us figure things out and manage to adjust just fine.

I agree, IOS 15 is the worst update i've seen. It ruined safari, notifications and imessage when there was nothing wrong with any of those

Answer #4:

By: Leif Stoltenberg

What an unhelpful answer. This update broke at least one very popular subscription model paid app. Update rollback is functionally offered by every other OS out there. Instead of smugly ‘recommending’ frankly unhelpful (but equally smug) answers, perhaps Apple would like to spend some time working on introducing much needed rollback functionality instead. Or even just properly regression testing their new releases.

You can not downgrade iOS.

I, for one, love the new iMessage and notifications, but the new Safari is TERRIBLE, ill give you that.

Whether you find the answer helpful or not, it IS factual. There is NO supported way to go backwards in iOS. There has never been a way to do so. If the update caused an issue with a 3rd party app, you need to address that with the developer of the app. Apple provides the API for all updates to the app developers, long before an iOS update is publicly released. It is up to the app developer to ensure their app can work with the new iOS. Apple doesn't own 3rd party apps, nor do they or can they do anything with the code inside the app.



If you are not happy with these facts, complain to Apple. This is a user to user only forum. We don't design iOS. Nor can we provide what you want.



Feedback to Apple goes here --> Feedback - iPhone - Apple



But complaining to Apple likely won't help with this 3rd party app which you are having an issue with. You need to address that with the app developer. This link explains how to reach an app developer --> How to contact an app developer - Apple Support

What app are you having an issue with?

Answer #12:

By: Khalid Weber

Calm down. Like it or not, your answer was unhelpful - in tone,

if nothing else. I did not say your answer was not factual, but did express my honest opinion; that your answer came across as smug and was unhelpful. Both of which are true, and my opinion remains unchanged.

Answer #13:

By: Hailie Upton

OK. Not sorry for anything I wrote. It was not meant as smug. If you interpreted it as such, that's on you.



Have a swell day.

Crunchyroll - iOS 15 broke all the best bits, including queue, main

filters, and the ‘new’ episode flag functionality. Only change was upgrade to iOS 15. It was working before, it was not working afterwards. I am absolutely sure of that, because I was watching anime on it immediately before the upgrade, and then tried to watch some immediately after. I have a support call scheduled for it with Apple tomorrow, but I was hoping to rollback the upgrade and wait for a less buggy version (as they likely won’t be able to fix it on the call). Anime simulcast streaming is pretty much all I use the affected device for, so if that’s not working the device is effectively rendered useless to me until it is.

The IOS 15 update is diabolical! I feel like I have lost control of swiping & the Ipad has developed a ‘mind of its own’, NO, I am not going to adjust to it! Horrible update! Please hurry up & get rid of it!

Who do you think you are talking to? Apple? You aren't. This is a user to user only forum. Apple isn't here. Just other users. No one is going to get rid of iOS 15 for you.



I have absolutely no issues whatsoever with iOS 15.1 (the newest version) on 2 iPhones and 2 iPads.

How many times do you want us to say it? You cannot downgrade iOS. Your only option is to live with it.

By: Ignatius Dare

OK. That's fine, but If you think that matters to any of us users on this user to user only forum, it truly doesn't.
