Cannot Download iOS 10 Beta Over-The-Air on iPhone/iPad? Quick Fix

If you can’t download iOS 10 beta over-the-air on your iPhone as "Your Software is up to date" appears, follow this tip to fix the issue.

Apple has rolled out iOS 10.1 beta 5/Public 4. One of the most significant features in iOS 10.1 is the Portrait Camera for iPhone 7 Plus. Portrait mode applies DSLR-like blur effects over photos with the use of the dual-lens system.

Unfortunately, when I rushed to download the iOS 10.1 beta on my iPhone, I saw “Your Software is up to date” message-even after I had installed the iOS beta software profile on my device.

Now, reboot your iPhone. On your iPhone 7/7 Plus, press and hold On/Off button. While still holding the ON/OFF button, press and hold the volume down button until Apple logo appears on the screen. On other iPhone/iPad models, press and hold on the on/off and Home buttons at once for about ten seconds.

Step #5. Now, go to Apple developer center and download the iOS beta software profile again.

Step #6. Once the profile has been installed on your device, open Settings → General → Software Update and try to download the beta again.

Step #7. If the same message appears again, you need to quit the Settings app. Reboot your device. After your device has restarted, delete the beta profile (step 1 to 4) and repeat the same process. (During my test, I had to repeat the process twice.)
