Step 5: Put your device into DFU mode. To do this, hold down both Power and Home buttons on the device for 10 seconds. Release the Power button but continue holding the Home button until the device enters DFU mode. iTunes will provide an alert informing you that it has discovered a device in Recovery Mode.
Step 6: In the iTunes interface, hold the Option key on the Mac, or the Shift key on a Windows, then press the “Restore iPhone” button.
Step 7: When prompted, choose the folder that contains the iOS 9.3.2 firmware you downloaded above step 2. iTunes will then go through the process of installing a fresh version of iOS 9.3.2 to your device.

The device has successfully been restored, you can restore your backup, but only backup made on iOS 9.3.2 will work on it. Backups made on iOS 10 will not be restorable on iOS 9.3.2.
Users expect Apple will release the final build of iOS 10 to the public in the autumn this year.
