To avoid the constant nagging message to upgrade I had a tvOS profile installed on two different iPhones running iOS 10.3.2.

Now on both phones the upgrade messages showed up again after a couple of month. After wondering what happend I recognized that both tvOS profiles disappeared.

So I deleted again the IOS 11 download and installed a new TvOS 11 profile.

Did it happen to you that it uninstalles?

I checked now the Apple certificate which is valid till may 2019. So can I hope that it will stay like that for that time?

These profiles are only good for a year then they expire and delete themselves. You may have downloaded an old version. The old profile also has a date of May 2019 so it seems it gets remotely disabled by Apple.

This same thing happened to me a month or so ago. I had a TVos10 profile (expiration May 2019) installed on my 6s. Next thing I knew I wake up to find iOS 11 had downloaded to my phone :mad:

After deleting the update I installed a TVos11 profile, which showed the same expiration date (May 2019), so I'm not sure why the first TVos10 profile stopped working :confused:

Well I didn't check the expiration date of the first profile I installed. But next time I know...

Btw the ios11 update message just gave me the options install now, later or details.

Wasn't there once a cancel button?

I clicked later and than it told me it will install automatically between 2-4am when connected to a power source.

That really pisses me of.

Did you put your device passcode? If not, the update won't install by itself during the night, if you did, you "accepted" the automatic update to iOS 11
Here is the link to a topic discussing the same thing https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ios-keeps-automatically-updating.2107433/#post-25842257
As you can see on the linked post, instead of entering the password on the second screenshot, you have to tap "remind me later"

I totally get that. I had the same TVOS profile installed and mid February (see my post in this other MacRumors topic) I also had that. Let's hope the iOS11 profile for TVOS remains working also after May 2019.
