    i'm with iPhone 7 plus on ios 11 public beta 2 and I want to go back to ios 10.
    I did everything by apple manual before installing ios 11 and made a back up on my PC but it was a month ago.
    I would like to ask what will I lose if i'm installing this back up ? as I understand :

    Call List - No
    New Contacts - Is it on iCloud ? or I will lose any contact I had in this month
    Messages - No
    Safari history - icloud ?
    WhatsApp - have it's Backup

    Maybe any thing else ? please help me understand

    Well for starters, did you archive the backup? If you did not, then the backup was overwritten and you won't be able to recover any of the information.

    Now if the backup is archived, you will get back everything up until the day you made that backup. Anything after the backup was created, that won't be saved. So any messages, and call list will not be up to date. Safari History and Contacts will be up to date if you use iCloud.
