Most likely, if we have installed a beta version of iOS we have done it through a certificate, both beta user and developer. Therefore, to prevent our iPhone or iPad from trying to install beta versions, we recommend that you delete this certificate.
To do this, go to the section Settings> General> Profiles and, clicking on the user profile Beta, we uninstall it from the device.
Once this is done, our device should already work again as it did before updating. Usually there are usually incompatibility problems, although they may appear for some reasons, so if you have problems (reboots, blockages, malfunctions, etc), it is best to make a backup in iTunes or iCloud and restore completely Our iPhone or iPad .
Once returned to factory settings, we can restore the copy so that everything works normally again.
