Apple iOS 9.1 public beta begins

Apple iOS 9.1 public beta begins

Apple has released the next edition of iOS 9 as part of its public beta programme, despite the fact that the official version of the operating system is not due to reach iPhones and iPads until next week.

iOS 9.1 beta, which is a kind of trial unfinished build of the software, can be downloaded now by anyone who has registered, or registers, to be part of the public beta programme.

The next update is expected to get an official launch around the same time as Apple’s brand new iPad Pro. That device has been slated for release in November.

In reality, this update is one to get developers excited rather than consumers. There are APIs for the company’s new 3D Touch tool for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, as well as tools for tinkering with its new Live Photos function.

iOS 9 gets its official release on September 16th and will work on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or higher.

The software has been trialled by more than one million members of the public beta, according to Apple.
