You may decide to delete the iOS beta if you change your mind. It’s simple, and in this article, I’ll show you how to upgrade to the latest, general release of iOS if you’re currently involved in the Apple Beta Software issue.
Apple’s beta programs are available for the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. This article’s instructions are for the iPhone and iPad.
iOS beta versions may have defects, and you may encounter issues regularly while using them. The goal of iOS betas is to test new features. They’re used to evaluate performance and find bugs in software before it’s released to the wider public.
When Apple declares a beta to be ready for public release, it implies they have determined that the new software is bug-free and can be used by anyone (enough).
You may not want to utilize betas if you are a typical user. Betas are experimental, and if you have problems, you can report them using Feedback Assistant, but Apple may not be able to help you address them.
Your iPhone may behave strangely after installing a beta. It’s possible that some of your apps aren’t working properly.
Apple welcomes your feedback on the beta versions, but your problems may not be addressed until the final version is released. There could be a variety of reasons why you’d want to uninstall an iOS beta:
- You can’t use your iPhone with the beta because it’s too buggy.
- Your device is slowing down due to the beta, or it is crashing frequently.
- The beta version of your favorite software does not operate.
You can always uninstall a beta version for whatever reason. Uninstalling a beta is actually easier than installing one.
How to uninstall the iPhone iOS beta
The good news is that updating to the most recent stable iOS version is quite simple. All you have to do is follow a few simple instructions. Please see the Other Notes section below if you installed the beta on your PC.

Restart your device, and you’ll notice that the beta has vanished, and your smartphone is now running the most recent public release software. It takes a minute to complete the process.
Unenroll your device from the public beta
You could also want to unroll your device to stop receiving new public beta releases. You won’t be able to give input on the betas if you unenroll. Here’s how to unsubscribe:

If you want to install the beta program without using a computer, follow the procedures above.
If you installed the beta on a computer, you’ll need to restore your iPhone or iPad. This step entails wiping your device clean. You can restore your device from a backup of a previous version of iOS or iPadOS after wiping it.
