Updates to the iOS operating system don't always make devices run more smoothly, especially for devices that are already outdated. Especially for users who are more familiar with the previous version of the iOS operating system, rather than the new one.

In this case you can actually downgrade iOS, but the risk is you will lose all data on the iPhone. But not to worry, you can first move the data on the iPhone to iCloud so that it will be a backup data.

If you prefer using iOS before, here's how you can follow it so you don't lose data.
  1. Before you downgrade iOS, you can download the previous iOS version via the https://ipsw.me/product/iPhone site.
  2. You need to turn off the "Find my iPhone" feature which can be deactivated via Settings ➡️ (Your name) ➡️ Find my ➡️ Find my iPhone ➡️ slide to deactivate it.
  3. To install an earlier version of the operating system, you must also change your device to Recovery mode.
  4. After that, connect the device to the computer then synchronize (Sync) and open the iTunes application.
  5. In the iTunes application, select the iPhone icon in the upper left.
  6. Press the Option (Mac) or Shift (PC) button then select "Restore iPhone".
  7. A window will appear that you must navigate to select the iOS file that you downloaded in the first way.
  8. Select "Restore" in iTunes, then follow the instructions that appear on the screen.
  9. After your device restarts many times and completes the downgrade, the final step that you must do is restore your data from iCloud.

It's easy, right? Good luck...
