The iOS user interface  is works on the basis of   direct manipulation. It uses   multi-touch   gestures for it.  Interface control elements includes sliders, switches, and buttons. Interaction with the OS contains   gestures like swipetappinch, and reverse pinch. These all have specific definitions within the terms of the iOS operating system   and its multi-touch interface. Internal accelerometers   are used by some applications to respond to shaking the device (one common result is the undo command) or rotating it in three dimensions   (one common result is switching between portrait and landscape mode). The   iOS enabling users with vision and hearing disabilities to properly use its products by accessibility    functions. Apple is praised for developing such mobile operating system.

There are some people  who  want to continue experiencing  previous iOS software. If you want to stay with iOS 11.4.1 instead of iOS then you just have to follow the guidelines given below. We can get back iOS 11.4.1because the window for downgrades is  open now also. The guideline for   downgrade your iPhone or iPad to the earlier iOS 11.4.1. is as following. Follow it and get back to your desired iOS

Step 1: Have to lose data

As the iOS 12 is new version and recently launched storage can not be much. But as this is iPhone number  of pictures, files will be there. If you want something then have to lose something in return of it. After downgrading iOS 12 to iOS 11.4.1 all the data can not be there. I suggest the data which you find important download it to your computer. You can also upload it to web-based storage.  

Step 2: Get the iOS 11.4.1 IPS , the proper IPSW is IPSW.ME

The steps for doing it is given in flow chart





You have to do turn off ‘find my iPhone’ and it is to be done as above.






Step 3: Connect iPhone/iPad and do the iTunes

 You are done with doing previous steps lie downloading proper IPSW. The further procedure is to launch the iTunes. For that first plug your iPhone into your computer. When   you are in iTunes, look what is coming for your device. You will see the option to ‘Check for an Update’ or ‘Restore iPhone’ you have to choose accordingly.

From the procedure of downgrading iOS what things to keep in mind are-

  1. We can not get the data back. The whole data can be gone.

  2. If any picture or file is important then it should be saved on computer or on web.

After back to your desired iOS you have to start from start. It seems like you just took new iPhone.
