You Can Now Try IOS 9 In Beta
As of this Friday, happy iPhone owners may try out the upcoming IOS 9 in Beta version – an unprecedented event for Apple, who prefer to present only the finished product versions to the public.
What to do before you try IOS 9
Before your enthusiasm gets the best of you, take a second to consider that is still a beta version of the new operating system. Hence, things can go wrong.
You may be facing a bigger risk if you are using an older version of iPhone, but even with the latest device, there is no guarantee that you will not run into glitches or bugs.
Apple itself suggests that you try the beta version on a secondary device – that is, not on the phone that functions as your main device and is the home to all your personal and work data.
If you still want to go ahead with your primary phone, make sure to backup all your data and settings. Even though there is a small chance of this happening, running a beta version of any application could brick your device – and all possible precautions should be taken to avoid it.
How to get IOS 9?
If you are up for the adventure, here’s how you can try IOS 9 right now.
Head over to beta.apple.com. At the top of the page you will see an offer to try out the new IOS 9 and will be asked to sign up for the trial with your Apple ID.
When you have signed in, move on to the Getting Started section.
From then on, depending on your phone model, Apple will give you appropriate instructions on how to proceed.
What is new in IOS 9?
The first two notable features you may want to explore are Apple Music and the new News app.
Additionally, there are a few more features to check out: a restructured app switcher, an updated keyboard, increased security, low power mode (that can help the battery last a full day), a selfie folder (yes, that’s right) and even more.
