    is there a safe way to go from the public iOS 10 beta to the developer betas? I have a developer account, not sure why I didn't sign up with that at first.

    You'd need to install the full version from the Developer portal vs a delta install file downloaded OTA

    Hmmmm I downloaded the full .IPSW file for my 6S+ and I'm getting the "An unknown error occured (14)." - any idea how to get past this? I've restarted iTunes and restarted my laptop but it's still happening.

    **UPDATE**

    Just noticed a new version of iTunes was released, downloading it now and will try again.

    **UPDATE 2**

    Installed the latest version of iTunes and I still can't install iOS 10 Dev B4........................

    Not so. I just switched from public to developer and was able to do the OTA delta download.

    As above. Switch profiles and do a reboot. Then check for updates. Simple as that.

    It may work fine... Were I doing it, I do it as I suggested...because I'd rather start with the full developer version... in this case, the dev beta 3 & public beta 2 versions are the same build number - that is not always the case.

    Apparently all iOS DP/PB are the same software build. Its when it comes to MacOS/OSX that the builds differ between DP and PB.

    There's a big banner above the download files about installing Xcode 8 b4 if you're going to restore a beta. Did you do that?

    Also, make sure you have added your device in the portal under 'Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles'
