You may be forced to downgrade from iOS 12 to iOS 11.4, but when you go to downgrade, you find that downgrade from iOS 12 to iOS 11.4 without iTunes is not working. In this post, we will try to highlight a few of the ways you can resolve this problem.

1.     Safely Back Up iPhone Before Downgrading from iOS 12 to 11.4

You can either manually or automatically back up all your data on iCloud in case your iPhone, iPad or iPod gets lost or is damaged you have the data safe somewhere else. Although iCloud will not backup any purchased apps, music, books or movies, but once you restore from iCloud backup, it will download them from Apple store, iBook store and iTunes. Every Apple ID has a 5GB free cloud storage that you can use to backup all your data and in case you need more storage space, you can get it at an additional fee. These are the steps to back up your iPhone using iCloud:

Step 1: You need to connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network.

Step 2: Click on Settings, your Name then click on iCloud. If you are using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to your iPhone Settings scroll down to iCloud and click on it.

Step 3: Click on iCloud backup and for iOS 12 and earlier click on Backup. Make sure iCloud backup is turned on.

Step 4: Click on Backup now and stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until the process is completed.

Step 5: Once the backup process is complete, go to your iPhone Settings click on your Name then iCloud. Then click on iCloud storage and tap on Manage storage. When you click on your device, you will see the details of your last backup. For iOS 12 and earlier users go to your iPhone Settings click on iCloud then click on Storage and lastly, click on Manage storage.

You can also automatically backup with iCloud with the following steps:

Step 1: Make sure iCloud backup is turned on in Settings click on your Name then iCloud then iCloud backup. For users of iOS 12 and earlier go to your iPhone Settings click on iCloud then click on backup.

Step 2: Connect your device to a power source.
