How to download the iOS 9 public beta | iMore

***

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.

Periscope lets you broadcast live video to the world. Going live will instantly notify your followers who can join, comment and send you hearts in real time. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen.

Other features:

[+] REPLAY: When your broadcast is over, you can make it available for replay so viewers can watch later. Viewers can replay your broadcast with comments and hearts to relive the full experience. Replays currently last 24 hours. You can delete your replay at any time.

[+] PRIVATE: If you want to broadcast to specific people, press the lock icon before going live and choose who you want to invite to your broadcast. 

[+] TWITTER: You can choose to share your Periscope broadcasts on Twitter by tapping the bird icon before you start broadcasting. When you go live, you’ll tweet a link so that your Twitter followers can watch on the web (or in the app)

[+] MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS: Periscope will suggest people for you to follow based on your Twitter network. You can always follow new people, or unfollow them if you don’t want to be notified when they go live. You can also adjust notification preferences in Periscope Settings (in Profile)

[+] HEARTS: Periscope keeps track of how many hearts you get from your viewers. The more hearts, the higher you get in the “Most Loved” list.
