Installing iOS 9 public beta on your device

By Peter Chubb - Jul 10, 2015

iOS 9 public beta went live yesterday, and so for those that signed up to the Apple beta program, they have finally been getting to see what all the fuss was about once they downloaded and installed the new mobile OS. Many people have been asking how to install the iOS 9 public beta, and so we thought we would help explain how this is done.

Installing iOS 9 public beta on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device is not all that hard, although there are a few key things to remember. The first is to sign up to the Apple Beta Software Program, and the second, always back up your device.

If you have not signed up to the program, then you can do so here. The next and most important step is to back your iOS device up, and also archiving this with iTunes. It is always better to have a backup of your device on your computer rather than in the cloud.

The next step would to be to sign in to the Apple Beta Program from your iOS device that you wish to install iOS 9 on and scroll down until you see step number two, and then select the download profile button. The moment you do this Safari will then redirect you to the page with the profile settings for you to start the install process.

You then need to enter the PIN for your device and agree to the terms and conditions. Now you have to restart and launch the Settings app and select General and then Software Update and press Update. Now just sit back and wait for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to do its thing, as this can take a while.

It’s as simple as that. Please remember, this is a beta version so you will encounter a few issues and it will not come with all the features that the final version will have. If you do experience any problems then please report them to Apple.
