I’m rolling back my iPhone SE to iOS 10 because the battery life cratered in 11 (lasts ~1/3 as long)

Will Mojave try to force me into a newer iOS to sync pics and music?

I have a iPhone SE running the iOS 12 GM have had no issues with my battery but I suppose you could go back to iOS 10 if you can find it available

it wont authenticate with itunes
i didnt get to installing it yet – but im sure it's fine if i just use an older itunes or disconnect from the internet or whatever. i mean whatever it is, maybe it'll take a little hackery or whatever, but i'm sure i can figure it out. wouldn't be the first time i forced a firmwear rollback. the website i got the image from seemed to be full of people doing it

No that's not how it works. Disconnecting the internet wont help either. Otherwise, everyone and their dog would have rolled back iOS11.

Any apps that claim to roll you back to ios10 is 100% a virus.

I... wouldn't be so confident. You cannot downgrade an iPhone without already having jailbroken it on that previous firmware and saved specific files unique to the device that are generated by Apple upon installing that version. Without those keys from Apple, the restore process will fail.

No, you cannot download those keys. No, you cannot generate new keys. No, that piece of software you found on google won't work.
