What to do if iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 beta is installed
Go to Settings -> General -> About this device and look at the Software version line .
Important : if you want to continue using the iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 beta, do not delete the profile. Now you have a pre-release version of the OS installed, which does not differ from the release version. And so you can continue to download beta versions.

4 . We make a backup copy to iTunes or iCloud.
