Why Should You Downgrade?

There are lots of things that come to check when you should downgrade from beta version to stable version. There is a reason why Apple has two different beta releases, the developer beta version, and the Public version. Developer beta version available first before the public beta become available. So that developers can find the bugs and issues and fix them for the next release. So it does not mean that you won’t come across bugs or issues. The second thing is app compatibility.
