    Hey all,

    I'm going to sell my 9.7" iPad Pro with the iOS 10 public beta on. I'm
    Just curious, I know when you install the pulic beta you have to sign in with your Apple ID. Is there anything I should be aware of before selling this device? Will the beta have a date when it expires? Is the device linked to my Appl ID somehow? I'm just wanting to make sure I don't misinform the buyer before handing it over. Also, does the public beta affect the warranty in any way?

    Why don't you just restore it to iOS 9?
    Remember about disabling Find my iPad and wiping all content /settings.

    Restore it back to iOS 9 to be safe. I wouldn't sell it with a Beta installed.

    There is absolutely no reason to sell a device with a beta installed. Restore to iOS 9. It's so easy to do, especially if you don't have to restore any data; why put your customer through the annoyance of dealing with it?

    Connect it to iTunes and restore it. The beta will expire eventually and you don't want your customer ringing you later on complaining it's not 'working'. When iOS 10.1 is released they will probably get that too, and it might be full of bugs.
