    Hi folks. I would like to go back to the regular iOS version when the final release comes out in a few days. How do I jump ship without restoring my iPhone and losing data?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The last beta prior to release is generally the same build number as the final release. You shouldn't have to do anything except remove the beta profile.

    So do I remove the beta profile now or wait for the final release?

    And once I have removed the beta profile, will I automatically get the normal updates as and when they come out for the public version?

    I would keep the profile just in case Apple pushes out another beta version prior to launch. After final release go ahead and delete it, or you can keep testing future iOS 10 betas. If you remove the profile and another GM version is released with a newer build number it should let you download OTA.

    That is a relief. Thank you so much! Indeed, I will stick with the beta profile until final release.

    I had run the iOS 9 beta as well last year but couldn't remember how I got back to the public version lol.

    So if you delete the beta profile you're back on the same update cycle as everyone else not using beta? This is one of the things that stopped me from trying iOS 10 is thinking I had to restore my iPhone later on or I'd be stuck with betas in the future.

    So I have removed the public beta profile. I suppose I won't get the update for the general release of iOS 10 today since I'm already on iOS 10 beta.

    When can I expect to receive update from the normal cycle?

    It's hard to say. Outside of the usual fall release Apple pushes updates as needed.

    I received a little nugget of information that I can not disclose where it came from but its a good source. I was told that iphone 7 will be available starting the 9th (Pre-Order) as the person who told me is preparing staffing needs for the new release device.

    Pre-Order September 9
    In stores September 16

    There's just no way Apple is going to release the iPhone 7 on the 9th. Will they begin preorders on the 9th? Absolutely. Retailers would need to have inventory in stock already to be prepared for a Friday release.

    It's a nice thought but I just don't see it happening.

    That's alright. I meant that whenever Apple releases the next update for iOS 10 l, I should be getting it now that I've removed beta profile?

    Yes, if you want to opt out of the beta programme and get regular updates.

    Will the Dev Beta Profile continue to receive updates like the Public Beta Profile does, even after the final one for the general Public has been released?

    As long as the beta profile is installed AND Apple pushes out updates then yes, you'll receive them.

    Could someone please walk me through the process of deleting the beta profile. Definitely want to go that route versus restoring iOS 9.

    Thanks!

    Step 1: Launch the Settings app on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

    Step 2: Tap General and choose Profiles or Profiles & Device Management.

    Step 3: Under Configuration Profile(s), choose iOS Beta Software Profile.

    Step 4: Tap on the Delete Profile button, enter your device passcode (if enabled), and then choose Delete to confirm.

    Yep...I finally loaded Beta 10.0 to my phone last night, and am mildly impressed. Nothing seems to be earth shatteringly different, but more refined and more convenient. Overall, very nice. But, since the "genuine" 10.0 should be dropping shortly, I went online and deleted my Beta profile so that (hopefully) I'll start recieving update notifications like normal.

    One more night and you could've had the public release lol. Overall I'm quite happy with iOS 10. Little bits of refinement here and there works pretty well. However, the biggest feature I was looking forward to was the "raise to wake". Really sad that it won't be coming to my iPhone 6.

    "Raise to wake"? I don't think that's functional on my Beta-ized 6s.
