    If you are on the beta, do you have to restore your phone to go from beta to final version that will get future updates?

    Nope... Just remove the profile and install the release and you are good to go.

    You don't even need to remove the profile. Once the final release hits the servers you can update to it. If you keep the profile installed, you'll get the GM after the event, which should technically be the final release. If you keep the profile installed, you will get the next beta that comes out. Could be 10.0.1 or 10.1.

    True.. I am tired of running beta so I am coming off the next major release, hence the profile bit.

    A clean install of the final official release is always the best choice for overall performance, but I am too lazy to restore my iPhone so...:p

    I've honestly never had an issue upgrading and I never do a clean install. Although I'm sure I just jinxed myself, now.

    That's because some are still under the mentality of when OTA updating wasn't as stable and could cause issues.

    Nowadays and for a long time now OTA is extremely "safe" and stable. I can count on one hand the amount of times I've had to use iTunes to restore or "fresh" install since the iPhone 3G.

    This has been mostly my experience as well. However, at some point after getting on the iOS 9 final version from being on the beta I had some notification and battery issues so I did a clean install without restoring my data and saw some improvements.

    I think I'll keep the profile installed. I like the idea of getting new releases.

    I let Apple do the magic, after beta it will go to the public version and life goes on. Don't worry about it. :)
    Your beta, if you're tired of it, .. the public release won't be much of a better experience to be honest. It's basically what you see is what you get. Sorry iOS10 isn't what you're looking for.

    That's just not true. It's a myth. I've had clean installs of iOS perform worse than an upgrade. In general I have far less issues with just upgrading OTA.

    It's because of the olden days where a lot of stuff just was overwriting the existing folders on Windows, etc. So you end up with more storage (unused) or older drives being incompatible, but found, and therefor not upgrading to newer ones, etc. Causing all sorts of behavior issues. I think it's a bit of a myth now, because of how iOS is doing upgrades and dealing with old vs new, has it's own partition for it etc.

    And I agree. It's definitely not the reality of the modern iOS. Wiping the device and doing a complete reinstall is a massive waste of time if you're syncing with iCloud.

    Only if you restore from backups.
