Beta versions of operating systems are great for trying out the new features and figuring out how they work. But sometimes, when you install a beta version of an operating system, you notice that it is not stable enough for day-to-day usage and you might feel the need to uninstall it and go back to the previous stable release. And if you are testing the iOS 15 beta on your iPhone and want to get a stable version then this guide is for you.

So if you are interested in finding out how to remove iOS 15 beta from your iPhone, we will guide you through this.

How to uninstall iOS 15 Beta

Apple’s beta versions for iOS 15 are pretty exciting. However, if you are not comfortable with the idea of installing a pre-release version of Apple’s software on your phone, or you simply found that the beta did not work as expected for whatever reason, here is how to delete the iOS 15 beta.

Note: If you used a computer to install an iOS beta, you need to restore iOS to remove the beta version. If that’s your case, you can use the second method.

Removing the iOS 15 beta by removing beta profile:

The easiest way to remove the public beta is to delete the beta profile, then wait for the next software update. The public build will automatically arrive on your phone when you remove the Beta Profile. Here’s what to do:

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Profiles & Device Management.
  4. Tap on the iOS Beta Software Profile.
  5. Tap on Remove Profile.
  6. Now, restart your device.

When the next public version of iOS is available, install it to move back to a non-beta version of iOS. If an update is already available, you can install it by doing the following:

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Software Update.

Note: The iOS update that is available must be later than the version that’s installed on your iPhone.

If you don’t want to wait for a software update to be available and want to jump back to the previous stable release, follow the steps below:

Removing the iOS 15 beta by restoring your iPhone:

To remove the iOS 15 beta immediately, you need to erase and restore your device. Then, if you have an archived backup you can set up your device again from that backup.

Note: Backups that were created while having the beta software already installed might not be compatible with older versions of iOS. If you don’t have an older backup that was made using the current version of iOS, you might not be able to restore your device with your most recent backup.

  1. Make sure you are running the latest version of iTunes or Finder.
  2. Connect your iPhone to your pc and then put your iPhone into recovery mode:

    • For iPhone 8 or later: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Then, press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery mode screen.
    • For iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, or iPod touch (7th generation): Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Don’t release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Continue to hold both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
    • For iPhone 6s and earlier, iPad with Home button, or iPod touch (6th generation or earlier): Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Don’t release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Continue to hold both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
  3. Click on the Restore option when it appears.

  5. If the download takes more than 15 minutes and your device exits the recovery mode screen, let the download finish, then repeat step 2.
  6. Wait for the restore to finish.
  7. Enter your Apple ID and password when prompted to disable the iCloud Activation Lock.

After the restore finishes, you can set up your device from your archived backup, which must be from an earlier version of iOS.

Update when an alert says a new iOS update is now available

If you see a pop-up like this, it means that the version of iOS beta on your device expired and you need to update.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Software Update.
  4. Then install the update.

If you don’t see an available update, remove the iOS 15 beta by restoring your device. Or, if you want to continue receiving updates but you already removed the beta profile, enroll your device in the public beta program or developer beta program again.
