    So I updated my iPhone 7 Plus to 11.2. I was informed that the iPhone X will ship with 11.1 and that it can not be restore from a backup from 11.2. I was also informed that the latest beta of 11.2 does not work on the iPhone X. Is there any way to downgrade my iPhone 7 Plus to 11.1 and make a backup so it work on the iPhone X? Or will the iPhone X be support for 11.2 when it is official released tomorrow? Thanks.

    You were informed wrong. It’s shipping with 11.0.3. You can update to the 11.1 GM or snag the 11.2 beta. After you’ve updated it, you can restore it from your backup.

    Personally I would not want a beta on my new phone from the get go. I'd want to make sure there were not hardware issues before I added a layer of potential software instability to it. Plenty of how-to remove beta from iDevices -- just Google. Basically remove the beta token, restart your phone, backup then reinstall 11.0.x then do another backup.

    Ok, so I can update it to 11.1 GM, but will the 11.2 beta work on it? I was told that there was no reference in the XML info for the iPhone X. Thanks.

    Ok, thanks I will look for some videos on how to remove the beta and try this method instead. Thanks for your help.

    Can't you simply setup the IPX as a new phone, run the update, then reset and restore the phone, then go through the setup again using the backup?

    The problem is it doesn't look like 11.2 beta is available yet on the new iPhone X. My iPhone 7 Plus is on that beta and therefore has the backup on that beta.

    11.1 is not a gold master - it's the latest release version. A GM precedes a full public release (and essentially subsumes to the public version if no changes needed).

    Regardless, the iPhone X ships with 11.0.3.

    Yeah, but it shouldn't be an issue updating to 11.1. I'm just not sure we can get it to 11.2 beta 1. May have to wait for 11.2 beta 2.

    Interestingly I got an iPhone 7 work phone a couple of weeks ago (company only allows the last generation phones to save $$) and it made me upgrade to iOS 11 before it would do the set up and restore process. I assume you'd get the same option/outcome if you have iOS 11.1 on your current device you try to restore the iPhone X to. It made it pretty simple actually.

    I can confirm it isn't giving the option to go to 11.2. I guess we have to wait for Apple to release for the iPhone X

    We could downgrade to iOS 11.1 on our old device backup and restore to our iPhone X with iOS 11.1

    But I heard we may have problems with our health data.

    Also will watchOS 4.2 work with iOS 11.1?

    Same issue here. 11.2 is not yet available for the X so iTunes won't restore an 11.2 backup. It's bothersome but not a huge deal.
