    No, you'll have to do a full restore of the phone. If you have an iOS 9 backup you can revert to that but you won't even be able to use backups from iOS 10 after you restore to iOS 9.

    Actually u can. Download the 9.3.3 ipsw, and then on iTunes press alt/option+upgrade and select the 9.3.3 ipsw. U will downgrade without losing any data. I did it myself and then jailbreak. Everything works fine.

    you can just "update" to iOS 9.3.3 but it ****ed up my iCloud Drive. I couldnt enable documents and data, like the toggle wouldnt stick and nothing would backup to the cloud cuz like i said documents and data didnt work.

    However it might have been a coincidence? Good luck

    Does iCloud Drive work for you? Since the other user reported issues.

    When I try this it says the firmware is not compatible with my ipad.

    EDIT: oops I had downloaded the wrong IPSW. Worked fine, kept my data, nice!
