    Oddly enough it still shows available for the 6s but not the 6s+. I missed it by just hours on my 7+ last week so I'm stuck on iOS 11

    What I have been reading the 6s is still being signed. It worked okay for you then? I’m also thinking of starting out fresh and not restoring my iPhone once I go back and setting it up as a new iPhone. Will I be okay doing this?

    Restoring to iOS 10.3.3 and then setting up as new

    Absolutely not, iOS 11 is a mess for older devices, I don't blame you

    It's easy to do.

    Frankly, with all that's been written up about older phones losing 1 hr more battery life w/iOS 11...it's a complete mystery why you upgraded.

    LOL

    This is weird. I thought they stopped signing.

    The website I have on here, that download of 10.3.3 should be an official version of iOS correct? It shouldn’t have malware or anything in it right?

    It won't install if it's been tampered with; that's what the whole signing process is designed to avoid.

    Thanks for your reply so later I am going to do it and if it works then I don’t have to worry about a tampered iOS version on my phone?


    Another question when I downgrade it is probably best to set up as new and then be completely clean of any app or anything that could go wrong?

    LOL...well don't restore if the backup is 11.x

    It would serve you right if Apple stopped signing it while you was wasting time.

    I’m not wasting time I just have never done this before. Hoping it goes smoothly and getting others feedback.
