    I have the public betas of IOS 16 and watchOS 9 installed. To exit the beta program and have the official versions of IOS 16 and WatchOS 9 installed when they are released, apart from deleting the beta profiles, do I have to do anything else?

      No, just delete them and wait for the new official versions to come out.
