I am surprised that it is letting me download 16.5 Developer beta. I think you all know why I thought it would not. I will see if it lets me install it. I didn't notice the size, but it is a long download.

16 is still using profiles and the switch.
17 however probably won’t show when available.

What...? We're still in March. The iOS 17 beta doesn't come out until June. We still have 3 more months of likely iOS 16 updates to go, lol.
My guess is that we’ll get iOS 16.5 sometime in may, and then 16.6 aiming to be released around WWDC.

Maybe iOS 16.4.1 in a few weeks as well.

Wow, that was fast. Didn't expect another release of iOS 16.
Why not? iOS 17 is EXACTLY six months away from a public release!
So iOS 16 has just reached the first half of its lifetime.

You cannot count the iOS 17 beta phase starting with WWDC as 99% of the users are running release software (one could easily forget that following the forums here as it seems 99% of the users here are running beta software). ;)
