Does anyone know how to manually remove the Feedback app that comes with iOS Beta? Here's my situation:

I had iOS 11 installed and decided to revert back to iOS 10. I first installed 10.3.3 via iTunes in order to restore my iOS 10 backup. The steps I took were: install 10.3.3, factory data reset, restore backup through iTunes. Everything went perfect, except for still having the Feedback app. The first thing I checked for was to see if the profile was still installed, and it wasn't. I didn't even have the profile option in my settings. I went to Apple's website and installed the beta profile on my iPad again, just so I could turn around and remove it to see if that got rid of the app. It did not.

Does anyone know of any other way to remove this, without having to start fresh without a restore? My backup was done prior to installing the beta profile, so it's strange to me that the app even followed over.

I thought 10.3.3 was the current beta, and 10.3.2 was the current non beta OS. I have the profile for 10.3.3 on my phone, but haven't installed it. I have the feedback app also on my phone. Are you on 10.3.3, or 10.3.2?

I'm on 10.3.2 non-beta from a backup that I had prior to installing any profile. The only reason I went to 10.3.3 was because there was an issue with iOS 11 public beta 1 that didn't allow you to restore back to iOS 10. So I installed 10.3.3 beta just so I could restore my 10.3.2 backup.

Ok. The feedback app was likely in your back up. Even though you delete the profile, the beta software remains on your device, along with the feedback app. You would need to restore in iTunes as new, not from the back up. Or, just hide the feedback app in a folder with other unused apps. The app itself doesn't take much space. If you submitted many bug reports, that would take a good bit of space. And the only way to get rid of it is the afore mentioned restore as new in iTunes. I still have 12 gb of storage space taken up because I submitted 30 bug reports in iOS 10 beta. No computer to hook up to.

As displayed via the screenshot, the Feedback app doesn’t have an ‘X’ next to it and thus appear to cannot be removed in the traditional sense.
