Whether your iOS device is enrolled in Apple public or developer beta software program, you receive new versions of the betas from iOS Software Update automatically. Similarly, if you are using Mac or Apple TV, you get the latest versions of public or developer betas from the Mac App Store and tvOS Software Update respectively. At any time, you can stop getting iOS 11 beta updates on iPhone or iPad.
Remember, when you unenroll your iPhone or iPad from Apple beta program to stop receiving public and developer betas, you are preventing future iOS beta software updates made available by Apple on your device. You will always receive final versions of iOS software updates on your iPhone or iPad.
Apple, normally, gives six to seven developer and public betas before releasing the final software version of iOS. If you are a common user of iPhone or iPad, you wouldn’t like the idea of receiving such updates frequently. Pro users and iOS developers like to receive public or developer betas as they have to find bugs in the software.
