os x 10 11

Apple has just seeded the first beta versions of OS X El Capitan and iOS 9. Registered iOS and Mac developers can log into Developer Center to access the betas, as well as release notes and other info. Apple says iOS 9 will be compatible with the same devices as iOS 8, so devices with A5 chips and newer should work.

For those who missed the WWDC keynote this morning, Apple offered viewers previews of the future of both Mac OS and iOS platforms. OS X El Capitan brings about several under-the-hood improvements, as well as some nice new gesture and UI features, and iOS 9 includes a smarter Siri, better battery life and more.

Both operating systems should see a number of beta releases over the next few months, as Apple prepares for a public release in the fall. We’re installing these initial betas now, so make sure you stay tuned to iDownloadBlog for more WWDC and iOS/OS X/watch OS coverage throughout today, and the rest of the week.

    It shall begin..

    Who can first upload an iPod Touch 5 iOS 9 IPSW?

    • ✯Mike✯


  • ✯Mike✯

    I want the iPod ISPW so i don’t lose my jailbreak on my i6 🙂

  • Andranik Sahakyan


    • VaarishM

      You think you can help with a Udid registration?

      • InfinitePlusOne

        Come on just wait couple of hours, you’ll find plenty of IPSW, as before should work without UDID registration.

      • Paul Edmund

        What do you mean? I can just install it like any other IPSW?

    • Siaka Togola

      You think you can hook me up with the downloads Andranik?

    • Roshan Zamir

      ihave no developer acount so can i download it free i mean without UDID registered?

      • Ángel Javier Esquivel

        Yes, I just installed it without UDID registered

      • Eldon Martino

        how do i download it

  • Moh@mmad Amin

    i5s GSM ipsw please :))

  • I plan to install it on my iPhone 6 plus this evening. Just have to reup my dev account payment.

  • Lance Baker

    Downloading both as I spea…. type.

    • King Of The Clouds

      Can you email me the iPod touch ipsw please?

  • Keag

    One of you devs should provide links to get the new wallpapers! That would be awesome!

    • Cole Mahoney

      Here you go

      • Keag

        Looks stellar. Is that direct from the IPSW? Is there just one new wall in iOS 9? Do you have access to the new El Capitan walls as well? Thanks for all this!

      • Cole Mahoney

        I’m currently downloading on my iPad and iPhone so I don’t know but I’ll post any new wallpapers I find

      • Keag

        Ok great. When I set it as the wallpaper on my i6 it looks low res just FYI

      • Cole Mahoney

        Same with me 🙁

      • Same goes for the El Capitan wallpaper…

  • HamptonWalley

    Woww, iphone 4S will run IOS9.?

    • Giacomo Castellucci

      Yup, some on reddit say it runs even better than iOS 8

    • sss

      Yeah i confirme this beta 1 is better then ios 8 in terms of speed!

  • InfinitePlusOne

    Please test and see if its good enough to run normal day to day activity?

    • Ángel Javier Esquivel

      Hold my beer

  • Siddharth Desai

    Installed. It is SLOW and lagging a LOT.

    Yes. I know its the first beta but this is for people who want to know.

    EDIT: iPhone 6 plus

    • Nikos Siokas

      well i installed it also and its fast as fuck.smooth and sweet.

      • Siddharth Desai

        iPhone 6?

      • Nikos Siokas


      • Siddharth Desai

        Nice. I wonder what gives. I did a clean install.

      • Andranik Sahakyan

        It is slow at first, but if you use it for a while and reboot, it runs smoothly

      • It’s all about those reboots, trust me. I stuck to restoring my backup, opening all apps to make sure they worked and re-downloaded any data, then rebooted. Smooth, fast, and generally flawless other than two games not opening correctly.

      • Chris Mercer

        What two games?

      • Bastion and Crossy Road. Sword and Sworcery is another one but slight different. It opens, but can’t play sound.

    • VaarishM

      You have an official dev account?

      • Siddharth Desai


      • VaarishM

        Could use some help , if you’re willing to. Thanks

      • VaarishM

        Guess not :p

    • Rupinder

      Does it come with Apple Music? Or does that launch on June 30 for everyone?

      • Siddharth Desai


      • Rupinder

        Awh D:
        Oh well, looking forward to June 30th the most then!

      • Arsen Moussaelian

        you have to accept the apple music app, but right now it is buggy. Hope this helps 😀

    • Sokrates

      Thank’s for sharing!

    • Shaun Hammond

      It was insanely slow for me in the beginning, but its crazy fast now (scrolling on Facebook’s newsfeed is night and day). Battery life is dropping pretty quickly though (6 Plus).

    • Alex Fife

      Just let it index your stuff in search for a while

  • Gionata 

    please share the new wallpaper!

    • VaarishM

      Here you go 😀

  • Matt M

    anyone else not have the new icon for music and not have the news app?

    • nrubin29

      Both are launching later this year.

      • Matt M

        thank you very much

    • Dany Quirion

      Apple music will probably be in ios 9 beta 2 at the end of june

    • Arsen Moussaelian

      news app does not exist yet

  • Rupinder

    So, if I install this and decide that I wan’t to move back down to iOS 8.3, it’s not possible at all? Meaning, I’m stuck on iOS 9 Beta until it officially releases?

    • Jonathan

      Not true at all. When iOS 8 was in beta, I went back and forth between iOS 7 and iOS 8 beta multiple times.

      • Rupinder

        I’m just asking because that picture says “…iOS 9 can not be restored to earlier versions of iOS”.

      • Jonathan

        If I recall, every iOS beta said that. I think what they mean is you can’t restore to an older iOS without wiping your device clean.
        If the iOS is signed, you can downgrade to it. Always.

      • Rupinder

        Alright, thanks!

    • Chris Wagers

      When I’ve done this in the past if you create a backup in iCloud or iTunes using a later iOS build then revert back to an earlier iOS build and try to restore from backup it will tell you that you can not restore the backup to an earlier iOS version.

      The above being said you can create backup and then update to new iOS play with it and if you dont like it downgrade to the old iOS version and restore backup. You will lose anything you’ve done using the new iOS. Unless it’s something that doesn’t get stored using iCloud backup.

      Hope this helps.

      • Rupinder

        Yes, perfect response. Thank you very much, sir.

    • Roshan Zamir

      No You stuck with ios 9 as apple mentioned in there website.
      devices updated to ios 9 can not be restored to earlier versions of ios

  • iH8R41N

    Who a link for IPhone 5s IOS 9?

  • Aneeq Naqvi

    someone upload ipsw for iphone 5s global. 😛

  • Newgunnerr

    Someone know how to get el capitan without developer license?

    • Jeffrey

      Wait for torrent, no registration needed

  • sharp44MAG

    Does anyone know if on an iPad Air 2 on iOS 9 if the split app view and picture in picture are available in beta 1?

    • Jonathan

      I would assume yes, but don’t take my word for it.

  • Roger

    Just installed it in my iPhone 6 Plus . I dont have any network signal ? anyone experiencing the same issue ? I have Sprint.

    • モリ ト

      Hard reboot…

  • SkyFall

    I know its Beta 1 but is it smoother on A5 devices (iPad 2/3/mini, iPod 5g, iPhone 4s)

    • Insleep

      Works well on my iPod Touch 5th gen. Super smooth. But you have to give it a few hours after you install – Search has to index the iPod and that lags the absolute crap out of it, but after that’s done, you should be fine.

      • SkyFall

        Cool, thanks for the info 🙂

  • TwinSon

    So, anyone willing to give up their JB for iOS 9?

    • Evan Smith

      Nope. Im going to install it on my ipad. The jailbreak is too awesome on my iPhone 6 to give up.

  • Krutik Quiran

    anyone who has installed it, do you know if whatsapp works?

    • モリ ト

      It does for me so far iP6+

      • Krutik Quiran

        thank you i installed it on my 5s and works great and smooth! going to put it on my daily driver my iPhone 6 maybe tomorrow, waiting for my el capitan to finish download and put it on both my macs

      • モリ ト

        Not a prob… I’m downloading The Captain now also… my 15″ rMBP is drooling of impatience.

      • Krutik Quiran

        woohoo can’t wait to run this baby

      • VITICO

        ios 9 is very laggy on my iphone 6..

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    I was hoping apple to add more storage space for free. And a more Dropbox like iCloud.

  • leart

    installing right now….

  • Mike Solo

    Download iOS 9 Beta here – iOS9.Biz

  • Delfos Sambucetti Arturaola

    You guys getting battery drain? It’s pretty bad on mine

  • Nasser Cedeño

    The Captain 🙂

  • Yazdan Khazeni

    anyone installed ios 9 on ipad 4?
    is it smoother than 8!??

  • Jeiivy

    Batter usage is insane. I charged Insane to 100% just to wake up to a 50% battery. Home & lock screen is a major factor. 99% usage.

    • Jeffrey

      That’s umm…… F*cked up…

      • Jeiivy

        I Don’t Know if is the touch id that makes the home $ lock screen usage high.

      • Jeffrey

        I have no idea as well but it’s most likely just a stupid bug which will probably be fixed in beta 2

      • Jeiivy

        Yeah probably

  • Shams

    How do I download iOS 9 beta? I’m new as a developer

  • Josh

    Has anybody noticed if Apple Pay works because it doesn’t work for me
