However, there are a few important points to consider before you start the downgrading:

1. If you downgrade from iOS 11 to iOS 10, you can't restore from the iCloud or iTunes backup that took with iOS 11, but only can restore from iOS 10 backup. Of course, you can use you own way to backup your iPad or iPhone, such as backing up iPhone on computer with third-party iOS backup tool.

2. Make sure you have updated your iTunes to the latest version.

3. Please be aware that the downgrading process often brings data loss problem. So, data backup is quite essential now. You can restore from a compatible backup, or recover lost data from iPhone by using iOS data recovery tool.
