After several months of digging and discovering hidden new add-ons, the days of iOS 12 beta are over. And now, I’m all geared up to update to the official iOS 12 release. But before jumping on the bandwagon, I would like to delete the iOS 12 beta profile from my iPhone to stop receiving beta updates.
Had you also been rocking the iOS 12 beta on your iPhone? If yes, you would be pretty much in the same plane as me. Though you may have enjoyed your run with the beta version of the operating system; you would be willing to switch your loyalty now to use a more stable version of the OS. Let’s dive right in to get rid of the iOS beta profile and install official iOS 12.
Points to ponder
- You are not required to delete/remove beta profile to update to the official release.
- If you keep the beta profile, you will receive further beta updates.
