How to Uninstall iOS 16 Beta?

Beta testing is exciting, but it can also be risky. On the one hand, you can access the most recent features for others, you can test all the new exciting features before the official release. But on the other hand, they are full of flaws. Therefore, the program is in beta testing. It contains many bugs which can lead to data loss, battery drain or others. Some applications may not even work with the latest beta version. Think you need a beta version when there are so many bugs and flaws involved? Is it worth it? Follow my advice, wait for iOS 16 release and don’t rush to download iOS 16 beta.

But if you did install the iOS 16 beta and decide you don’t want it anymore, there is a way to get rid of the beta. You can just uninstall the best version and go back to your previous software update which is iOS 15.

You can simply clear the beta profile to stop getting further beta updates and then install the stable iOS 16 version on your iPhone when it becomes available, until you can continue using the iOS 15 update. Follow the steps below to uninstall iOS 16 beta.
