So I bought a new iPad Pro 10.5" today to potentially replace my 1st gen 12.9" iPad Pro. I have my 12.9" on 10.3.3 Public Beta 6, and its latest backup in iCloud. When I open the new 10.5", it is on 10.3.2...so it won't restore my 10.3.3 iCloud backup. So I figured I'd just download the 10.3.3 Public Beta to my new iPad...problem is when you go to the Beta site, it only offers you iOS 11 Public Beta...which would also be incompatible. Any thoughts? Do I have to get the 12.9 on 11, back up, then upgrade the 10.5" to 11, then restore? Hopefully there is a better way. Any help is appreciated!!!
