I have a iPad Mini and I updated it to iOS 8 few days back. I'm having a lot of compatibility issues and the device doesn't perform as it used to perform on iOS7. Is there a way I can restore my iPad Mini back to iOS7 so that I can enjoy using my iPad without any problem.
How to restore iPad Mini back to iOS7?
The below steps explain the downgrade procedure.
1 Power off your device.
2 Hold down the Home button and connect it to your PC. Continue to hold that button until you see a prompt to connect to iTunes.
3 iTunes will show a pop-up identifying that there is a device in Recovery mode for which OK can be clicked.
4 Choose Restore iPad Mini.
5 Then, select Restore and Update.
6 Since iTunes which you are using now should be iOS 7.1.1, the most recent official firmware will be downloaded and rebooting is also initiated.
7 The downgrade is now completed to iOS 7.1.1
