    Just curious if it would work. Has anyone on the public beta removed the beta profile and been able to download the developer beta 4? I would try it myself but I have 5 drafts in the feedback app I still need to fill out. :) Thanks in advance.

    No it won't make you downgrade. I wiped my phone back to factory settings which took out the profile. Then I just added it back later.

    Awesome! Thank you for your reply! As soon as I have time to fill out my pending bug reports I'll give it a go.

    Quite a few people have been doing it going by this kind of thing being discussed in a number of iOS 9 beta 4 related threads.

    My dev license expired last week. Trying to install public beta after installing a new profile but it's not showing. Any ideas!? Currently have beta 3 installed.

    Help!

    Will try connecting to iTunes when I get home.

    Delete the new profile... reboot device... search for update... OPTIONAL: After install go to beta.apple.com/profile and reinstall the public beta profile.

    The PB update won't show because PB1 and beta 3 have identical build numbers. Remove the profile from Settings > General > Profiles, reboot, and check for an update.

    Odd. OTA updates don't check your UDID, or at least they haven't in the past.

    Shouldn't we expect problems removing the PB Profile and update to b4 as we don't have our UDIDs registered?

    Worked on my iPad Air 2 which doesn't have a registered UDID.

    Doesn't seem that any have arisen so far, and nothing to really indicate that will change.

    Is this gonna have repercussions in the future? I mean, if someone did a factory reset, the profile would be deleted, and you'd be prompted to download beta 4. Cant blame that person.
    I'm on the edge about going through this process. I may just fall over and do it

    I don't see what issues there would be...you'll just essentially be running the dev beta.

    I believe if you are doing a restore basically then it simply gets the latest publicly available version.

    Yeah I can't understand how this is working and I bet it's an error or loop hole Apple doesn't know about yet, I mean how can they issue a developers beta to the public who's only registered for the PB.

    They might know about it and not really care that much--basically it goes out to the servers to check and with the profile it goes to one set of servers for public beta but without a profile it goes to a more general set where it sees that you have a beta on it with the version that is the same as the last developer beta so it figures you should be offered a new developer beta as anyone running a developer beta would be.

    Most average users won't even try to do this, so in practice, it's probably not a big deal to Apple.

    You guys are right, it worked, downloading iOS 9 Beta 4...so since I don't have the profile anymore how can I give Apple feedback on the beta 4?

    Worked on my phone and it's UDID has never been registered. I just had to reboot to get beta 4 to show up.
