How To Downgrade iTunes 11 To 10.7 – Step By Step Guide

Before you start with the whole procedure, I would recommend you to have a backup of your complete iTunes Library as a smart man said, “Always stay prepared for the tough times”.

While backing up the Library, make sure that you keep the directory structure intact.

  • First you need to remove iTunes 11 files. You can do it manually by launching your Terminal and firing the below command:

sudo rm -rf /Applications/

  • If you do not wish to uninstall it manually, you can make use of any third party uninstallers to get rid of iTunes 11
  • Now check if you Library is intact or not. If its there then its wonderful, else use your backup to set it up again
  • Assuming you have all the required things set, all you need to do is just download the required iTunes version and install it

NOTE- Which ever method you follow to uninstall iTunes, make sure that it does it cleanly. This should encourage you not to do it manually.
