Hi, I just tried to update to 6.1 on my i5 and software update keeps coming up with BETa 4 and says "only for developer devices", I've never been a developer and the phone has only ever been updated with normal software updates OTA, has anyone had the same? What can i do?

Thanks!

Same happened to me on my 4. Started a thread yesterday, and someone tracked down on Apple's support forums that it seems to be a Verizon issue with OTA updates. I plugged it into my laptop and checked for the update and it gave me the right one.

No idea if the Verizon OTA update is mislabeled or not, but I didn't want to chance it since beta 4 expired the day before it started showing up as the available update on my phone.
