    Hi all, I want to avoid installing iOS 11 when it will be released to the public, so I want to stop the automatic software update. To do this, you can install the beta profile of tvOS, where can I find it? Here I found the beta profile of tvOS 10, can be good or I'll need tvOS 11? Thanks

    What?! This doesn't make any sense... What has tvOS to with iOS?
    No one forces you to update to iOS 11. Just ignore it when it pops up.

    Evidently you are not informed. Not to say that it makes no sense if you don't know this trick.

    tvOS 10 profile will be fine. either way it won't update.
    for anyone that finds this later, installing the tvOS profile on an iOS device forces the iOS device to check if any updates are available on the tvOS channel, which there obviously isn't, so this is a hack to stay on the same iOS version indefinitely.

    Nothing because it's an iPhone and not an Apple TV. ;)

    so won't it fetch the tvos firmware and try and update and say crash or something? if it can detect that the channel/OS is wrong, can't it detect that the profile is also incorrect to begin with?

    Why do you not want iOS 11?

    Because the 5S would become very slow.

    I had it when I was jailbroken with iOS 10. It just shows “your firmware is up to date” in the settings and never says anything about it at all.
