    Can anyone tell me if I'll be able to restore a backup of 9.3.1, or is restoring to 9.3.3 the only option?
    (I want to keep that animation "hack.")
    Thanks.

    Would iOS 9.2 still be signed? I doubt not. Same as iOS 9.3.1. But at least you can try. New system should be compatible with backup created in old system.

    The only option to backdate is to go to 9.3.2.

    None of the available versions have the animation-disabling glitch.

    9.3.1, which is on my 6S at the moment, has the animation "glitch" I refer to. Thus the question about getting back to a backup of 9.3.1 if I try the beta on this phone...

    Thanks chrfr.
    Guess I won't be using the beta on this phone anytime soon.
    I have 10.0 beta on a 5S and it works fine, but I miss the instant transitions.

    Related question: I am on 9.3.3 beta. If I go to 10 beta2 after backing up, and then have to restore to 9.3.2, can I restore my 9.3.3 backup to 9.3.2? Or would I first need to go from 9.3.2 to 9.3.3 to use that backup?

    Backups are separate from the iOS version, so you wouldn't able to go back. It will only restore the data you had and not the version of iOS itself.

    You can't restore your 9.3.3 backup to 9.3.2 (unless you first go to 9.3.3 and shift/option downgrade back to 9.3.2, but this doesn't always work).

    So, if I need to do this, the route I will have to take is Backup 9.3.3==>Install 10 beta profile==>upgrade to 10==>downgrade to 9.3.2==>install 9 beta profile==>update to 9.3.3 beta==>restore backup. Correct? Sheesh, I hope I don't need to do this...

    Unless iOS 9.3.3 final comes out then yeah, that's the only way without the developer IPSW file.
