How To Rollback From iOS 17 To iOS 16?

You have installed the iOS 17 update on your iPhone and noticed that you are getting some stability issues and you want to roll back to the iOS 16 version. Since it is seen in the beta version of the latest iOS 17 that the new updates don’t appear in the settings, there is excessive heating of the device, fast battery drain, no internet connection after the beta download, and phone and apps are not working properly and more. 

Note that once you have rolled back to iOS 16 and you are using your Apple Watch with watchOS 10, you will not be able to use it along with your iPhone, and you can’t use the previous version of watchOS after rolling back to the iOS 16 version. To know more, check out the article below.
