    How long will apple sign with IOS 10.3.3? I like IOS 11 but some of my applications will not work.

    Want to downgrade to 10.3.3.

    I don't know for are, but it must be? Because so many devices (iPhone 5, 5c, Mini, etc.) cannot update to iOS 11, and they must be able to install 10.3.3 if they are on, say, 10.1?

    Ipad will not restore to 10.3.3. So decided to restore back to 11. Get an error on itunes number 3503. Now eye iPad is staying on recover mode.
    Also when choosing to restore itunes indicates the software is being extracted. But then at the very end of that the iPad ends its session with itunes and then can not be restored.
    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Is there a way to contact the app developers to tell them to fix their apps? Downgrading to IOS 10.3.3 is only a bandaid and is not recommended to stay on considering possible future security issues, the apps need to be fixed. There's no two ways around that.

    There are many applications. Some are not available in the Application Store.
    Used one end to restore mode and reinstall 11. Used the steps as as recommended. This turned the screen blank. Teen the next stew was for age programme was to download and install 11. Left age computer so this could be done. Waited over 7 hours still there not say progress in age download. Programme called Dr. Fone.
    Rang up the Apple company and talked to a senior advisor who told me how to access the necessary files to send to the technicians.
    That is done now. But, eye senior advisor will not be back in until Thursday in which him will ring me with the fix for this.

    I am still going to see if I can fix this between now and Thursday.

    Well the iPad successfully restored as is should. To 11. I am thinking that the iPad shut down due to the battery dying. When powered to my computer and started iTunes the serial number was not showing. So I let iTunes do its thing and worked.

    Was able to restore from my latest backup before I played around with 11 and attempting to reinstall 10.3.3.

    I did read somewhere to shut the iPad down to make the restore the iOS version but could not do that.

    It's October 3rd and I downgraded today to 10.3.3 on my SE. Battery life was really bad for me plus a few noticeable irritants became apparent that drove me nuts. Not sure when I'll update (if at all).

    It doesn’t matter now. Apple stopped signing 10.3.3 late this afternoon. Nothing you can do to go back now.

    Well I wanted to get a 256gb iPad ever since last year. In another reply I listed the one that I purchased. This one came with version 10.1. Would rather have 10.3.3. But still better than 11.?. All my applications work on the new iPad.

    How is a new iPad better with iOS 10? Most of the best new features of iOS 11 were designed for iPad.

    I have 11 on my 126gb iPad. Some of my favourite applications do not work on 11. 10 is fine with the new iPad.
