I have iPhone 5s with iOS 11.1. Few weeks ago had to change back my iOS version from a new version because my iPhone did not work well with the new one.

Since then I can not backup to iCloud. When I try it says:

The last backup could not be completed because it was iCloud backed up by a newer version of iOS.

How can I change iCloud to get my older version back?

  • It would be beneficial to include the precise wording of the error message so others can find it – grg Feb 4 '18 at 20:48
  • The precise wording was in Hebrew, so i wrote the translation i made – nirit Feb 6 '18 at 17:41

Go to Settings → your Apple ID → iCloud → Manage Storage → Backup and delete the existing backup. Choose to delete and disable backups. Once the backup is removed, try to back up again from scratch.
