How to Fix iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo during iOS 12 Beta Downgrade

The iOS 12 beta offers really cool new features that will really transform the way you use your device. But is also comes with a number of issues that can really render your device unusable. If you downloaded the beta and have now changed your mind, downgrading to iOS 11.4 is quite easy to accomplish. Most of the time it simply involves putting the device in recovery mode and allowing iTunes to restore and update the device, an action that should install iOS 11.4 on your device.

That said, downgrading your build is a major change to the device and can also cause some issues with the device. One of these issues is a device that remains stuck on the Apple Logo. If this is what you encountered while trying to downgrade iOS 12 beta, we will offer you some solutions that may work.
