Hello everyone. I bought an iPad Pro 10.5 this week. It shipped with iOS 10.3.2.

I decided to upgrade to the iOS 11 Beta and the bugs I incurred made it too unusable. I contacted Apple and found out I couldn't downgrade back to iOS 10.3.2. They told me my only option was to downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 Beta. The version Apple has listed on their website for restores is 10.3.3 Beta 4.

Well this version has a major bug on the 10.5 iPad that doesn't allow split view to work with ANY third party apps. My problem is, I can't figure out how to upgrade to iOS 10.3.3 Beta 5 or Beta 6.

If I re-enroll in the Beta Program.. it keeps trying to re-push me iOS 11 beta.

How can I get iOS 10.3.3 Beta 5 or 6?

At this point you have to try to find the .ipsw or just wait until the final comes out next week. Beta 6 is the final build that will be available to the public.

Any idea where to find the .ipsw file? Haven't spotted it anywhere. Also, is there bug I'm experiencing with the 10.5 iPad a common issue on this beta?

You will probably need to wait until it leaks out, if it even does because everyone is interested in iOS 11. As to your bug, I couldn't tell you. Im not running 10.3.3 or have a 10.5" iPad.

I found the 10.3.3 Beta 5 ipsw file which apparently fixes my bug. If I download that ipsw, can I upgrade from Beta 4 to Beta 5 via iTunes without losing my data?

Not that it matters since you solved your issue, but there are different beta "profiles". I tried iOS 11 weeks ago and was pretty unhappy with it and restored my phone to whatever the current, publicly available version of iOS 10 was at the time (10.3.2, as I recall). I did have to download the IPSW file and use the key-combo to allow me to pick an IPSW file but it was no problem doing so. After I got that, I re-applied the "regular" beta profile and am running 10.3.3 now.

You can no longer get the iOS 10 Public Beta profile. But now that you mention you, you can find the iOS 10 Developer profile out there. Completely forgot about that.
