Are you a registered iOS Developer? Registered developers are the only ones authorized to use beta software on their devices.

Proper practice for any developer is to update to the latest beta release once it's made available to developers, otherwise it would defeat the purpose of being a developer/tester if you're not looking to test the latest firmware/releases. All developers receive notifications from multiple sources such as Settings.app > About > Software Update, iTunes, or emails when an update is made available. Place your device into DFU mode and restore to the latest beta firmware from Apple's Dev Center and your problem will be resolved. There are no workarounds for expired betas unless you have explicit root access to the device prior to the device locking up from an expired beta firmware, which only a handful of hackers have with an iOS 8 jailbreak off of either the Pangu exploits or their own.
