    Is there a way to go back to iOS 10? I don't like iOS 11, and I have tried doing the restore thing where you put the iPad Pro into recovery mode. I can't get it to download 10 on there. It keeps asking me to upgrade to 11.

    You can download the iOS 10 image from https://ipsw.me and can then install that through iTunes (I think you need to old Option when you click on Restore). The downloads themselves come directly from Apple; that site just has all the links.

    That’s what I tried. Both of the options and it doesn’t work.

    I have a Mac mini with an old dell keyboard so I tried holding shift when clicking on update but it says I’m up to date.

    And when I hold shift down with restore it comes up iOS 11 agreement.

    You need to use the keyboard modifier for Mac. On your old Dell keyboard, that would be alt.

    Here is another article posted just 4 days ago that indicates Apple is still signing 10.3.3. It's for iPhone, but the process is similar, and there might be some good info in there for you.

    Okay I got it to work, and now it's wanting me to restore from backup or start as a new iPad. I tried restoring from backup, but it says my software is out of date. I tried the iCloud and it didn't work either. Do I need to set up as a new iPad? If so how do I get my info and apps downloaded back onto it?

    Use an older backup or you can't. At least not everything. Some stuff like photos and contacts can be restored from iCloud. Apps can be redownloaded on the App Store. It's a good idea to have a backup made on the version you're downgrading to to restore. (In this case iOS 10)

    Otherwise, if you don't want to lose some of your information you'll have to go back to iOS 11.

    Okay. Thanks. I thought I had everything saved in the cloud because my photos and everything seems to sync to my iPad once I take photos on my iPhone.

    I plugged into iTunes, and I know I have backed up my iPad several times since I got it for Christmas last year, but only the backup from Christmas with my old iPad is showing. :(

    It seems to work fine on my iPhone, but it is so glitchy and not as responsive on my iPad Pro that iOS10 seem to be.

    But Can we downgrade to 10.3.3 on an iPhone 8 Plus? I just bought an 8 Plus, but I hate the new OS!! Will 10.3.3 be compatible with the new phone?

    Scrap that - if you're on iOS11, nope.

    Never knew an iPad Mini 2 received iOS11... must be painful

    The iOS 11 automatically downloaded itself. And now it displays annoying message to install it. There's no option to turn auto download off. Strange.
