    Hey guys, I just updated my iPhone 6s to the 10.1 public beta. I am set to receive my new iPhone 7 Plus tomorrow, and was wondering what I'd have to do to restore it from a backup of the 6s. Will I have to sign the new phone up for the beta, download it, then restore from back up? Or will I be able to just restore it from the 10.1 back up and iTunes will recognize it and update the 7 Plus for me?

    Hmmm, I think you will just have to wait to find out. Try to set up from the 6s backup and if it's not possible it will tell you. Then set it up as a new phone and then restore as you said.

    I think as it's only a small software revision I would guess you can restore from the 6s backup.

    I got my iPhone 7 plus today, upgrading from a 6s plus on 10.1 beta.

    I had to get the iPhone 7 to download the beta profile, install update then factory reset phone. Then I could restore from the 6s plus 10.1 iCloud back up.

    You'll have to setup as new, add the public beta profile, update, reset, restore from backup.

    Don't do it!

    I'm in Beta hell on my 7+.
    Wifi dropping. Bluetooth dropping. Spent some time on the phone with Apple and the best we could figure out was to do a restore. I spent about 4 hours needing out last night getting my phone dialed in and organizing. I guess I get to do it all over again.

    Since the 6S is on iOS 10, and it's backup is, you should be fine. It should restore to 10.0 (comes with that stock) or 10.0.1 (prompted to update when turning on the phone first time)

    The problem for me was that after I downloaded the beta, 10.02 came out fixing several known issues. Once you're locked into the beta system you don't get any of the bug fixes that may come along until they decide to do a beta update. The specialist told me there may be, for example. three more 10 updates before they may decide to release a 10beta update.

    It's not that likely that they will have there more 10.0.x updates before the next 10.1 beta comes out which will likely have what 10.0.2 has (if it doesn't already).

    That's not necessarily true. Sometimes the betas contain the fixes.

    More than likely the next Beta 2 will include the 10.0.2 fixes. It'd make no sense not to include them.

    They've always done it this way with betas; the next beta will include the minor bug fixes released

    Yes this is usually the case.
