    If you're doing OTA update no. You have to update to Beta 6 first before you can go to beta 7 unless you download the entire Beta 7 IPSW file which is 1.2GB and restore the phone as NEW.

    I personally haven't installed the profile that Apple recommended, seeing as I never had a bug with my iTunes or iCloud or whatever it was. Everything is fine for me, so I wouldn't worry if I were you.

    Your iPhone will give you the updates that you need in the order that you need them. Just back up your phone like you should be doing anyway and don't worry about it :)

    I wonder as well.
    Staying on beta 4 since Apple removed blurs on iPad 2 with beta 5. And I love the blurs.
    So if they return in beta 7 what I expect because iPad mini has the same hardware and got blurs in beta 5/6, will I be able to update directly OTA? I mean, my iPad informed me OTA about beta 6 also, although it's an update from beta 5. Don't you think Apple would pick a combo update then?

    Just a guess since the full Beta 5 is 1.2GB. It could be larger or the same size roughly.

    I didn't install the profile thingy myself since I dont use iTunes match.
