Hello! I have iOS 7 Beta 2, and I love it so far. I have one question, I have iCloud backup on and it backs up every night...thing is. Last backup was on iOS 6...so that means the next one will be on iOS 7. If I revert back to iOS 6.1 and restore from the iCloud Backup that was on iOS 7...will it be compatible?

As well as iTunes?

If you want to downgrade to iOS 6, make sure you have an iOS 6 back up. That includes iTunes.

I have an iTunes backup of iOS 6 done before I upgraded. I disabled iTunes from automatically backing up. So I think I should be safe.

Theoretically, you should be good to go.

Thank you for the help! I'll try to stay on iOS 7 as long as I can. Beta 2 seems to be a pretty stable release.

You are welcome. I haven't tested everything out yet in beta 2. But, from what I have tested thus far, it is more stable than beta 1.

Actually Im terribly sorry. I have one last question.

On iTunes I have multiple stored backups from my iPhone. Random dates in the past...I dont even know how it happened. It just did.

Can you explain how to make those multiple itunes backup? So I can at least have one saved just in case I accidently backup on iTunes
