Yesterday, soon after the mega event, iOS 9 golden master was not the only firmware update pushed to developers. Apple also released iOS 9.1 beta 1 to the registered iOS developers. It’s interesting to see that a software update, which is not yet available to the general public has already seen a point upgrade. This clearly shows that Apple works on the current and future software updates simultaneously.
Other software pushed on the same day includes the first beta release of an all new tvOS and Golder master releases for the Watch OS 2 and OS X El Capitan. While Apple did give its new tvOS a short time on the big stage, but there was no mention of the iOS 9.1.
After the release of iOS 9 on September 16, everyone will be concentrated on the next big software update which is going to be the iOS 9.1. This next update after iOS 9 will likely bring support for Apple’s largest iPad, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro among other new stuff. iOS 9.1 will reportedly add display-size specific features such as split-screen apps and picture-in-picture video playback on the tablet with the big screen.
Apple will release the final version of iOS 9 software update on September 16 along with the final WatchOS 2.
During its ‘Hey Siri’ event on September 9, Apple refreshed almost all of its product lines by introducing new models of iPhone, iPad, and an all new Apple TV. iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus were the stars of the show while iPad Pro was also unveiled alongside two complimenting accessories including a smart keyboard and an Apple Pencil.
You can download the first iOS 9.1 beta from the Apple’s Developer Center.
