Home Home Tech Don't forget to unenrol your Apple devices now that everything has been released

Unless you want to now start getting beta updates to iOS 12, tvOS 12 and macOS Mojave, it's time to unenrol your devices.

Apple fans who have wanted to try out the latest and greatest operating systems from Apple, as public betas, have been able to do so for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Macs.

To take part, you needed to sign up for the beta OS profile, but now that all of those operating systems have been released, it's time to unenrol.

Of course, you might be someone who wants to keep on testing and using beta updates to these newly released operating systems, and if that's you, then don't need to do anything – you'll see beta updates automatically downloading at the appropriate times.

The thing is, most of us don't actually want to be using beta versions, especially once the newest version of operating systems have gone gold.

Of course, there might be updates you'll want to test out in iOS 12.1, etc, but you can always sign back into public beta updates if you want to.

So, how do you unenrol your devices from the macOS, iOS and tvOS beta programs?

The answers with detailed screenshots and instructions can be found at at this Apple Beta Software Program Page, which is entitled: "Unenroll Your Devices to Stop Receiving Public Betas".

Here, Apple notes: "When your device is enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program, you will automatically receive new versions of the public beta. At any time, you may unenroll your device so that it no longer receives these updates."

So, if you're happy the new OS versions have been released, and you want to wait for iOS 13, tvOS 13 and macOS 10.15 to arrive in about 9 or 10 months time before you start the beta process again, then unenrol today.
