iOS Beta

When you install a beta version of iOS, a certificate will be installed on your iPhone or iPad that makes it eligible for receiving new beta builds in the future from Apple. If you’d like to opt out a certain device from receiving new beta updates then the corresponding iOS beta certificate has to be removed.

Previously, we showed how simple it is for anyone to install iOS 10 beta on their devices using the associated configuration profile. In this guide, we will show how you can opt out of receiving new iOS beta builds from Apple by removing the corresponding certificate from your device. Keep in mind that deleting a certificate will not remove the beta firmware from your device. If you’ve installed iOS 10 beta and would like to roll back to the previous stable version then make sure to read our in-depth guide on how to downgrade from iOS 10 to iOS 9.3.2.

How to Remove iOS Beta Profile

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

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

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

Delete iOS Beta Software Profile

The iOS beta profile will now be removed from your device and you’ll stop receiving any future iOS beta updates from Apple. If you have any other beta profiles installed which you’d like to remove then the same above steps will apply except that you’ll have to choose the corresponding profile to remove. As mentioned earlier, removing the iOS beta software profile will not downgrade your device to the previous stable version.

To opt in for beta updates again, you’ll have to re-install the beta profile. Here’s some related articles:
