    When iOS 9.3 is officially released, how do I go from iOS 9.3 beta 7 to the official 9.3 software on my iPhone 6?

    Assuming it will be a newer build you'll get the option to update to it just like any other update.

    It will show in the software update in settings as iOS 9.3 instead of 9.3 Beta

    As an added note, if you wish to end your beta journey after updated to the public version just delete the beta profile in general > profile.

    Last beta to official (non-beta) public release is usually a full 1.5-2GB download. There is no delta update as always.

    I dont do OTA update. I download official final ipsw files from felixbruns.de and dfu update my iDevice using iTunes.

    This is the best way to upgrade from beta. You cancel out the potential upgrade bugs. I am sure that many people employ this strategy.

    Do you lose anything on your phone when you do it that way? Or no it updates regularly?

    I must admit I laughed at the idea of "your beta journey".

    It really has been a journey for many of us. Installing the beta, discussing it in this forum, complaining about things, being happy when they fix things.. We're all in this together and it's been fun, even though we hardly know each other outside this site.

    A toast to ya'll!

    Okay so I'm feeling silly today. Deal :)
