    My iPad Pro has been running iOS 11 Developer betas for the past month. I’m just wondering if Apple is done updating the developer betas and should I switch to running the Public Beta? If so, how would I do it? Would I have to install the public beta profile and delete the other beta profile?

    You have got the same beta installed, so I don’t see why you would switch.

    If history repeats itself Apple will typically release the same build for DB and PB. Usually DB get released first and then PB a few hours to a day later. If you're on a DB you'll be fine to continue on this path throughout the beta cycle.

    yes, DB builds come much faster and more frequently than do the PB builds..

    Thats not true. Now that PB is out. Every single time we get a DP, we will get a PB. Thats how it always has been. PB just may follow a day or two behind DP. Same amount of updates though.

    Yeah, it's the same build, PB just comes out later. The idea is to allow devs only to try the new build, so if any showstopper bugs are found, fewer people are affected.

    Once a day or so goes by and no major issues are reported, PB is released.

    Basically: DB gets a new beta a day or so before before PB does. So, if 1-2 days are important to you, then stay on DB.
