Which GS-911 model?

2015 K1300s MS here. Likely to be my only bike for a while, but if replaced would likely replace with something like a R1250RS. I had my last bike, a 1985 K100RS bought new, for 30 years.

I'm interested in buying a GS-911 to (at least) review and reset service reminders. I doubt I need a model that is good for more than one user/one bike.

I don't do any work on the bike myself. Not being a mechanic I'd rather pay the BMW shop through the nose to keep this thing in a safe condition for those occasional 150mph blasts.

Which one is the best or the most minimal that works, or which ones should I avoid, if any?

I have the GS-911 WiFi. Its the best of both worlds, WiFi and USB so you can use your Laptop or Smartphone.

Is that 10-pin or OBD?

10 Pin. You can always get the adapter cable for OBD if needed

Buy motoscan app and a obd2 reader and adaptercable instead much cheaper (around 130usd total) with the same functions (and more).

You have my interest, but seems it only works for android devices. Can it be used on Apple or a pc laptop stand alone?

Motoscan only works on android.
And it is quite handy to have.
But, i do have to warn anyone that uses the motoscan app:

In certain cases, when coding the ZFE unit, it may write the code from a ZFE "LOW" unit into a ZFE "HIGH" unit. The difference between LOW and HIGH is that a ZFE LOW unit has no ESA, ALARM and Tire Pressure monitor. So if the motoscan app fucks the ZFE then you are in deep shit. Unless you are me and know how to use the BMW Software "Tool32" and NCSExpert....
