In the last couple of months, Windows Insiders were testing Windows 10 Mobile preview builds and shaping the OS with their feedback. After multiple delays of the update which was initially scheduled to be pushed out to Windows Phone 8.1 users by the end of 2015, the update is officially available, yesterday.

Windows Insiders already having Windows 10 Mobile, official version on their phone. So, you are not required to downgrade your phone to Windows Phone 8.1 using WDRT to get Windows 10 Mobile officially, Microsoft correctly confirmed this:

Q. Hey Microsoft! My Phone (which is in supported list) is running on Windows 10 Mobile Insider preview build, should I need to downgrade my device to Windows Phone 8.1 to get official update?

Ans: Hello Mayank! No action is required on your part.  As a Windows Insider you have the latest build and do not need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8.1 to receive any updates.  Your device is up-to-date. If you no longer want to receive Windows Insider Preview builds on a particular supported device, you may switch to Production and await future retail updates or move to the Release Preview ring to receive early app updates
