    Do all iOS devices just automatically un-enroll from betas and continue to get updates as normal until re-enrolled?

    Or will they continue on the beta cycle?

    Thanks

    They will continue installing future betas until the profile is manually removed.

    Future betas will most likely require a new beta profile.

    I don't think so. Wasn't the case in iOS 9

    settings>general>profile. select the arrow on the iOS beta profile and delete button. BTW that will also remove the feedback app

    Oh ok. I was thinking of major updates. So if they come out with beta 10.1 etc in a month it should continue updating then?

    That's right. And it's not a sure thing you'll need to get a new profile for even major updates. Prior to now, the profile name had the iOS version in it. Now they don't, plus the certificate doesn't expire until 2019 (though that's normal).

    It will likely always continue to have seperate for iOS versions (iOS 8 had its own, iOS 9 had its own and iOS 10 has its own, iOS 11 will have its own.) The reason is typically the final update to the previous iOS is usually in beta around the same time as the new iOS beta begins. It has to be seperate profiles so that people could test say 10.4 and others can test 11.0, so the Software Update knows which beta build to grab and see.

    So if I update to the iOS 10 GM now, and remove the profile later, I will be able to receive the official updates from Apple and not the betas?

    Yes. All the profile does is allow the device to see and download beta builds in the Software Update. If you remove the profile your device will no longer see future beta builds and as normal will only see released software updates.

    This is not true. In fact the iOS 9 and iOS 10 beta profile are exactly the same other than the expiration date... this profile will continue to work for all iOS betas until it expires in May of 2019... At witch time a new profile will need to be installed.

    If you no longer want to receive beta updates remove the profile by browsing to settings, general, profile, iOS 10 beta profile, then click delete.

    No. That was a designated profile for iOS 9.
