    Long story short, certain of my apps won't work on iOS14 beta. Therefore, I am downloading the Restore Images of iOS 13.6 beta 2, where everything was working properly.

    I would like to upgrade to macOS Big Sur beta on my Mac. If I do so, will I be prevented from using my Mac to restore my iPhone to an earlier beta/earlier OS in the future?

    Kind of an odd question, so please let me know if you would like me to clarify/extrapolate!

    Thanks!

    I don’t see why it would. I mean, devices are managed via Finder now so as long as it detects your iPhone, you should be able to restore to an earlier iOS version. I have not installed the newest macOS beta on my MBP yet. I started the download yesterday, but the download time was too long so I’ll do it this weekend.

    Well unfortunately that's an unknown since everything is still in developer mode and has not even hit public beta yet.

    Won't Time Machine allow a restore to a previous version? If so then I say give it a try.
