    This is a horrible mistake. I can’t do anything with the iPad with this. How do I go back?
    Thank you

    BTW, any backup you made while on iOS 11 will not work with an iPad on iOS 10. You’ll have to set up your downgraded iPad with the last backup to made before updating to iOS 11.

    Johanna & SciFan.. and of course others wanting to respond - a number of our members post about iPad iOS upgrades/updates and do not own a computer, so cabling to iTunes is not an option. Are there any recommendations for these people who might want to do an iOS downgrade? Dave :)

    It’s not possible to revert to a previous, still signed iOS version, without PC or Mac.

    Thank you for your help. I did get it back but on iOS 11 which I guess I’m stuck with. Two other questions: can I get rid of the block at the bottom of the home page which collects redundant icons and is there anyway to get back a normal keyboard?
    Thanks again.

    Hello and glad that you at least got back to iOS 11 - you might want to tell us which iPad you own and how much storage is available (e.g. 16 GB, 32 GB, or other) - these may impact on your experience w/ this new iDevice OS. As to your questions, see my screen captures below: 1) For the Dock, go to General -> Multitasking & Dock - disable the circled item; and 2) For the KB, go to General -> Keyboards - disable the 'Key Flicks', and review the other items.

    Also, I would strongly suggest that you download (or view online) the new iOS 11 manual from Apple - I have it downloaded in iBooks - you can also look at Apple manuals. Good luck. Dave :)

    Thank you both worked. Does the balloon have to stay even without icons? My iPad is iPad Air 16gb
    Again the help is much appreciated.
