    I know there are already a few threads floating around about this, but it seems like I'm seeing all sorts of different my apologies for starting another thread.

    I've been on the iOS 9 Public Beta profile all summer, and am currently on iOS 9.1.

    My last archived backup was back in July when I backed up iOS 8.4 via iTunes and then switched to the public beta profile.

    I never archived an iOS 9 beta backup (because it was a beta), and now that I'm running 9.1 beta, I'm wondering what the best way to get back to the official iOS 9 would be.

    I have everything synced with iCloud - should I just put my phone in recovery mode tomorrow and let iTunes update me to iOS 9? If I do that, will all of my iCloud info automatically re-sync?

    Or is there a better way to handle this? I love 9.1 but when I get my iPhone 6s on the 25th, I want to stay with the official iOS 9 so I want to make sure I have a legit iOS 9 iCloud backup to restore from when I get the new phone. I don't wanna have to set it up as a new iPhone.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would like to know as well! I am in the same boat as you, I am selling my 6 Plus and will need to do this after I get my 6s Plus.

    Only one way to do that really and it's to restore the phone in iTunes to get it back to the non-beta version. Other than that, putting phone in recovery mode would work. Bottom of this article talks about it:
