Only a few hours after the WWDC keynote, iOS 9 beta 1 was seeded to developers. However, users of iDevices were required to register their devices with the Apple Dev Center.
However, if your device isn’t listed on the Apple Developers program, this post will help you install iOS 9 beta 1 on your iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPad, and iPod Touch.
We’re listing a simple workaround for you guys. Before we begin to tell you the procedure, let’s talk about some features in iOS 9. The Cupertino Company has introduced a lot of new things such as enhanced functionality for Siri. The virtual assistant can now work with videos and images on your device, enabling users to ask Siri to display photos that were taken at a specific place or at a specific time.
The calendar app has been upgraded and users can now create automatic events for restaurant bookings and flight reservations. The proactive assistant is a huge deal in terms of actions based on the user’s location.
Now back to the main subject; here are two methods to install iOS 9 beta 1 on your iDevice.
#1: Install IOS 9 Beta Without Apple UDID
If you don’t have Apple Developer account and won’t be able to stash out $99, the good news is you don’t need to. Before you start you need to download IOS 9 Beta 1 IPSW file.
Just follow these steps to install iOS 9 on your device:
Step 1: Download the appropriate IPSW file.
Step 2: Connect the device and launch iTunes.
Step 3: Hold ‘Windows’ on a Windows computer and ‘Option’ on a Mac computer and left click in iTunes the button saying ‘Check for Update’.
Step 4: Select the iOS 9 IPSW and choose ‘Open’.
Step 5: Allow 10-12 minutes for installation.
#2: Install iOS 9 Beta 1 Using Apple Developer Account
This method is the recommended one but you need to pay for the Apple Developer account. It costs $99. With this account, you have access to all beta software released by Apple as soon as they come out.
You can sign up for the developer program to download iOS 9 beta 1 by going to this link: https://developer.apple.com/programs/
After you’ve signed up, login to the account. Your UDID needs to be registered with Apple for your particular device on which you want to install iOS 9 beta 1. To get this, connect the device to PC and launch iTunes; click on Serial Number; open UDID and copy it.
Now go back to Apple Developer Center and click on Devices under iOS Apps. Next click on the plus sign to register your new UDID. From the main menu center page, select the iDevice to download the iOS 9 beta 1 IPSW. It will be downloaded as ‘.zip’ and would need to be extracted to access the ‘.ipsw’ file. Install it with iTunes on your iDevice and enjoy the new beta.
That’s it, you can now enjoy the new iOS 9 release.
