Downgrading from iOS 13/12/11 to the previous iOS version requires you to download the previous iOS ipsw file first. If there is no signed previous iOS ipsw for your device, you cannot downgrade. You can check whether there is an iOS ipsw file for your device via ipsw.me. If there is a signed iOS ipsw file available, just download the file to your computer.
Go to settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone/iPad/iPod touch > Turn it off.
Connect your iOS device to the computer and run your iTunes.
Press the “Power” and “Home” buttons at the same time. After the Apple logo appears, release the “Power” button but still hold on the “Home” button till you see “Connect to iTunes”.
iTunes will alert that it has detected an iPhone (or iPad/iPod) in Recovery Mode, and asked you to restore your device. Agree to restore your device by clicking “OK”.
Search your device icon on iTunes and click it > Choose Summary tab and, (For Mac) press “Option” and click “Restore iPhone (or iPad/iPod)…”; (For Windows) press “Shift” and click “Restore iPhone (or iPad/iPod)…”.
7. Find previous iOS ipsw file you have downloaded, select it and click “Open”. You will see a pop-up window telling that you are going to downgrade to previous iOS software, and the process will erase all data on your device. If you have backed up your device, just click “Update and Restore” to continue.
