So I just installed tvOS 12 beta profile on my XR running iOS 12.4.1. As far as I understand, it blocks “shady” updating my phone to iOS 13. But I’m curious how does this profile block me from that exactly?

It basically makes your device check for iOS updates in a place that is for tvOS updates, so the result of the check comes back that there are no new iOS updates.

I've just installed it, right after I got my notification to upgrade to iOS 13. Now it's stuck with a (1) on the settings app, really annoying.

Have you tried resetting the device? Sometimes that fixes it or it just eventually goes away. The same thing happened on my iPhone SE. I can’t remember which I did but one of them worked.

Check to see if you might have the update already downloaded in storage settings and delete it if it’s there.

I don't want to lose any data.

Same thing happened to me. When I hit software update it tells me it’s on the most recent version of iOS, 12.4.1. Nothing has been listed in the download section and restarting the phone doesn’t remove the red indicator
