You can also downgrade your device via Recovery Mode. Through this method, you can't choose the iOS version you wish to go back unlike DFU mode. iTunes will automatically downgrade your device to the previous iOS version. (Here are the diffrences between Recovery Mode and DFU Mode)

To get started, just download ReiBoot on your computer, activate it. Next, launch the software and connect your device to the computer. Finally, click on Enter Recovery Mode. That’s done! If you have to often deal with recovery mode to either fix any stubborn issue or downgrade your device, I would recommend you to keep this handy software under your radar.
