    Cant' remember if 9.3-9.2 is possible.

    If it is, how do I downgrade.

    Spring time is some way away no chance go Skygo upgrade anytime soon.

    9.2 will at least allow Skygo app to work via iPhone 6 again.

    I miss my t.v. in the kitchen and considering Sky Q purchase.

    iOS 9.2 is not longer being signed by Apple. You will have to downgrade to iOS 9.2.1.

    Do I use iTunes via macbook or can it be done via iPhone

    You don't happen to have a rough estimate of when ios 9.3 will come out do you by any chance. (Sorry I know it is kind of a silly question)

    Yep, no one really knows aside that it will likely be sometime in the near future (as in within the next month or two at most).

    Thanks Sunday shift tomorrow, I've decided to be patient with SkQ purchase and I'll keep 9.3 with hope that 9.3 is released in a few weeks or 2-3 months.

    Apple has mentioned in a recent interview about 10.11.4 releasing next month (March.) Both 10.11.4 will release along side 9.3 each other. Since they just about always release both same day and both have a feature tied in (iBooks update for iCloud non-Apple purchased ePubs and PDF's)

    Since their event in March is said to be the 15th and releasing the new iPhone 5se and Air 3 (rumoured to launch shortly after on the 18th) 9.3 will have the hardware support for those new devices, so has to be out by then.

    That's the rough estimate and I would guess the most probable. (Probably the 15th, maybe a day or two later or maybe the week before the event.)

    Thanks, didn't think you could downgrade from a beta.

    Ran through that process. Now I have 9.2.1 back on. However two things, anytime I restart my phone, I get the Welcome screen, then add wifi, and then iCloud password (which i shouldn't have to do every time) and secondly, I see beta 9.3 beta 3 when checking for update. I do not have beta profile installed btw.

    Any ideas

    Did you quit the beta program? https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/unenroll#
    Scroll all the way down to “How do I leave the program?” then click “Leave Apple Beta Software Program”.

    No I didn't. I don't think I have a backup of iOS 8 anywhere to do that. That will take care of the second issue. As far as hello screen should I download 9.2.1 and restore again from that file in iTunes? I'm on 9.2.1 after following that website instructions btw

    It's certainly worth a try. I haven't seen that particular error before.
