Today, July 9, 2015, is a big day for people as tech giant Apple launches a first-ever public beta program for iOS 9. With this release, the Cupertino company has broken the years’ long tradition of releasing beta versions only for the developers. It is not that people could not download the beta versions, but, they had to pay a hefty amount for it.
Today onward, people will get a beta version of both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan after finishing a simple registration process. It is a win-win situation for both Apple and its fanboys. On one hand, the company will get the information regarding performance, bugs, and other difficulties directly from the end users. In other words, Apple will be able to get the necessary information to improve the latest iOS with users’ viewpoint. On the other hand, fanboys will enjoy the hands-on experience of iOS 9 prior to the official launch.
What is there in beta version?
The beta version of iOS 9 brings a smarter Siri, Music app and many more innovative features for both iPhones and iPads. It is said to improve overall performance along with increased speed.
Any iPhone that has iOS 8 is ready to embrace iOS 9 beta version. If users are not satisfied with the beta version, the option of switching to iOS 8 is always open for them.
Apple is expected to come forward with the final version of both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan at the end of the summer as per its tradition.
Word of caution
In the beta version, no one can expect that it is free from any bugs or technical faults. At times, iPhones and iPads may get crashed, and some of the apps may not work properly while using this version. The version is in testing mode, and, therefore, it is better to backing up all the data prior to going for it.
