How to Restore iOS 7 iTunes Backup to iPhone / iPad / iPod touch

Although Apple has offically declared that the latest iOS 7 will be released this fall, it seems that many iOS device users, especially those who want to be ahead of the rest, have installed the newest iOS 7 in beta on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Well, when you have been drawn in to enjoying the new design of iOS 7, you must admit that there are still some pitfalls, like the instability, which makes some people want to drop the new iOS 7 and get back to their previous iOS 6.

The problem is that restoring an iOS 7 iTunes backup to a downgraded iOS 6 device is impossible.
