    what is the best way of blocking the updates on iPhone and iPad as I don't want to update to iOS 11 just yet as I am happy with the way my devices are at the minute.

    I know about the tvOS beta method but is there any other way?

    Just install the tvOS beta profile? Why not use it if it works just fine?

    You can also buy Adguard Pro (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adguard-pro-adblock-and-privacy-protection/id1126386264) and add "mesu.apple.com" to the blacklist. Blocking that domain will stop the update check process(thus the device will never know that a new version is available). There is no downside to this.

    The tvOS profile may enable some beta metrics(+ Feedback app), which in turn may have a slight impact on the battery. Also, if your carrier releases a new settings update, you will not be able to receive it(since its absent from the Apple TV).

    Thank you, I did not know you could use Adguard pro to do that. I use the basic one so I will look into it.
