Here's how you can downgrade the latest iOS 15.6.1 or iPadOS 15.6.1 update to iOS 15.6 or iPadOS 15.6 on your iPhone and iPad.
You Still Have Time to Downgrade from iOS 15.6.1 / iPadOS 15.6.1 to iOS 15.6 / iPadOS 15.6 on iPhone and iPad
Apple will stop signing iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 without dropping any sort of notice. And if you are looking to downgrade from iOS 15.6.1 or iPadOS 15.6.1, an update which was released just last week, then it's better you do it now before your chance slips away.
Before you do anything at all, it should be made clear at this point that this will erase everything off your iPhone and iPad. Therefore take the time to backup everything to a safe and secure location. You can use iCloud, iTunes or Finder to create a backup. Just choose the route which ensures the safety of your data so you can restore it later onto your iPhone or iPad.
Make sure you download the correct iOS 15.6 or iPadOS 15.6 IPSW file and save it to your desktop:

Step 2. Once your device has been detected, launch iTunes or Finder.
Step 3. Your device will show up as a tiny iPhone-like icon on the left hand side, click on it to reveal more details.
Step 4. You should see a 'Restore iPhone' button in the center. While holding down the left Shift key (Windows) or the left Option key (macOS) click on that button.
Step 5. Select the iOS 15.6 / iPadOS 15.6 IPSW file you saved to the desktop.
