As a result of system limitation, we can not restore backups of high iOS version to a lower iOS version. Thus, if you downgrade your device to iOS 11.4 or iOS 11.4.1 beta from iOS 12, you can not restore iOS 12 backups on your device.

We can extract the data from iOS 12 backups, then restore to the iOS 11 device. You can export photos, contacts, notes and Safari bookmark from the backups, then separately restore them to the device. But you can not restore history calls or messages, you can view them via backup viewer or export as PDF. For the rest of the data, we can neither view it nor restore it.
