Hello,
today I've observed that my iPhone started to download iOS 12.1 Public beta 2 in the background. I no longer want to receive beta updates.

What I then did was unenroll from beta profile:

Next I've restarted phone 2 times and it still is trying to download beta software. Currently it's stuck at 'Estimating time remaining..." because it's on mobile data only:



How can I discard the public beta now?

Did you remove the beta profile from your phone?

You can let the update download (just don't install it) and then go to storage settings and delete it from there.

thank you, I'll connect to wifi again and try it. I just hope the installation process doesn't start

im not sure if you want to try a forced reset.
the way to do it varies by model.
Hmm... will try it if C DM solution fails
