How to stop using public beta versions of iOS 13, iPadOS 13, macOS Catalina 10.15, and tvOS 13

Yesterday we reported that Apple released the first public beta versions of iOS 13, of iPadOS 13, of macOS Catalina 10.15 It's from tvOS 13. Soon after, we show what should be done to test the new operating systems.

Although OSs are at an early stage of testing, many may have a satisfactory experience with them and continue to use beta versions until the end of testing and the final release (expected to take place in September / October); others, however, may not be so lucky and face headaches to the point of giving up public beta versions. But how do you get back to using it? downgrade para) iOS 12, macOS Mojave 10.14 and tvOS 12?

This is exactly what we will teach below.

How to reuse iOS 12

To do this, as we have reported, you must have necessarily backed up your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using iOS 12 before migrating to iOS / iPadOS 13. If you did not, it was already; have to do a fresh / clean install.

If you followed our recommendation and backed up to iTunes (macOS Mojave) or Finder (macOS Catalina), plug your device into Mac / PC and open iTunes / Finder. Then put the iGadget in Recovery Mode.

ITunes or Finder gives you the option to restore your device. Confirm that you want to adjust it to factory settings by choosing “Restore” (this will delete the device contents). When the process is complete, you should activate your device by entering your Apple ID information (in iTunes or Finder).

You will then be asked if you want to restore information from a previous backup; choose the iOS backup you created in iTunes / Finder before installing the iOS / iPadOS 13 public beta. Follow the instructions; at the end of the process, your device will restart with iOS 12 properly installed.

How to re-use macOS Mojave

Again, you must have created a backup to get everything back to the previous stage. But if you want to save any files created or modified during your use of macOS Catalina (and not in the cloud for you to download again when using Mojave), it's good to make a copy of it by placing it on a USB stick, on an external disk or even some remote service like iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

This done, disable Search My Mac by going to System Preferences Apple Account. Then restart your computer with the R keys pressed (release them when the Apple logo appears on the screen).

Before restoring your backup (either using Time Machine or manually dragging files from an external disk to your Mac), you need to format the boot disk used to install macOS Catalina. Then select the Disk Utility option in the "Utilities" window and then select your boot disk. Be sure to select the entire disk (not just the volume name below it) by selecting View Show All Devices; Then select the disk and choose "Partition." If an alert asks if you want to add a volume to continer or partition the disk, choose partition.

Disk Utility will display a panel by which you can configure your partition. For Format, choose “APFS” if you are restoring a backup of macOS Mojave Time Machine or later. Otherwise, choose “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)”. Then choose "Apply."

Make sure your backup drive is connected. Then go to the Apple () menu and select "Restart." When your Mac restarts, hold down the R keys (release them when the Apple logo appears).

Some options will then appear. If you have a Time Machine backup, choose the "Restore from Time Machine Backup" option and click "Continue"; Follow the on-screen instructions to specify which backup to use and start the restore process. When selecting a backup, use the macOS version column to verify that you are selecting the previously released version you want to restore. If you do not have a Time Machine backup, opt for a fresh installation and then drag your backup files manually to your Mac.

Okay, your Mac is running macOS Mojave again.

How to reuse tvOS 12

Bad news: If you have an Apple TV 4K, there is no way. All you can do go on System Settings Software Update and disable the option to receive beta versions. In doing so, then I need to wait for a new commercial version of tvOS to be released to install and reuse a non-beta system.

Now, if you have an Apple TV HD (fourth generation), you can restore using the USB-C connector behind it. To do this, disconnect the HDMI cable and the Apple TV power cable, open iTunes on Mac / PC, connect the USB-C cable, reconnect the power cable, and (in macOS Mojave iTunes or macOS Catalina Finder) , choose the option to restore the set top box.
