iOS 9 marks the first time Apple has ever released a new version of the iPhone and iPad operating system as a public beta. That means more people than ever before will be able to test it out, try the new and enhanced features, and provide feedback before it goes into wide release this fall. But it also means people will have to go through the public beta download and install process. While it’s not complicated, is is new and different. So, we’re going to walk you through it and give you a place to ask questions if you need extra help.
Warning: Beta means beta. This isn’t an early access program. It’s pre-release software. That means put it on a secondary device if you have one and, if you don’t, think really hard before installing it on your primary device. If you rely on your iPhone or iPad for critical communications or to run your life or business, you may want to stay clear until the official release this fall.
