Ahead of next week’s September 16th’s iOS 9 public release, Apple has seeded the iOS 9 Golden Master seed. This release, baring any unforeseen circumstances, will contain the same code that ships to customers next week.

Apple also took the time to release the first public beta of iOS 9.1. Reports have stated that the newly announced iPad Pro will come with iOS 9.1 once it ships in November.

Both iOS 9 GM and iOS 9.1 beta 1 are now available for download via Apple’s Developer Center.

The iOS 9 GM seed is listed as build 13A340, while the iOS 9.1 beta 1 seed is listed as build 13B5110e.

Unfortunately, the release notes for the software downloads are not yet working, but we’ll be sure to update this post once Apple provides valid links.

We’ll also be back with a recap of what’s new, if anything, in the iOS 9 GM and iOS 9.1 beta.

  • Paging Pangu! Cmon guys!!!

  • Nathan

    Let’s hope it fixes the issues the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6+ has been having. The iPhone 5 seems to run fine.

    • Tommy

      What issues? I’m on the 5S and have faced no issues whatsoever.

      • jaysoncopes

        HORRIBLE BATTERY LIFE. Not sure if this is what Nathan is talking about, but I’m typically at 60% by 10:00 AM.

  • Kyle McNulty – Mclovin341

    Will this update not come through OTA?

    • Matheus Lisboa

      GM’s are IPSW-only, i think

      • Kyle McNulty – Mclovin341

        Thank you (y)

    • abhi0n0nakul

      yeah no ota i guess

  • OneBigInFiniteJoint

    What the hell happened to Mac OS El Capitan ? no mention about it’s release or did i miss it ?

    • Dany Quirion

      september 30

      • OneBigInFiniteJoint

        thanks pal.

    • Matheus Lisboa

      there was a hint on an email during the keynote that said it would be released September 30

      • abhi0n0nakul

        oh thats great.

    • abhi0n0nakul

      osx usually comes later like in oct

      • OneBigInFiniteJoint

        some people here are saying that was a hint on an email that it’ll be released sept 30th

      • Mr.Coolfreak

        Nope, this one comes September 30

    • 5723alex .

      Mac OS El Capitan GM is out too.

  • Dany Quirion

    does anyone have a link to download the GM version ? my phone is signed to dev account but i do not have a developper account therefor i cannot download the version

    • If you want to wait until IMZDL has it up on their site, I’m guessing it should be available sometime later today.

  • OneBigInFiniteJoint

    2GB RAM !!


    • I would take that with a grain of salt, seeing that there’s no mention of increased RAM by Apple on the website nor the keynote.

      • OneBigInFiniteJoint

        apple never talks or mentioned ram. it’s all third party who run config apps and tear downs that reveal the RAM size.

      • leart

        who officially did a tear down of a still not in market device?

      • OneBigInFiniteJoinT

        if you read my other post you will notice i mentioned that the websites could be wrong and Apple never discloses RAM, it’s always third party software or tear downs.

    • Diego

      Sadly still on f***ing 16gb space.

      • OneBigInFiniteJoint

        yeah. but i always bought the 32 gig so a bargain for me getting 64gig for the price of 32.

      • Diego

        Not for me, when you live in this hell called Brazil, your money don’t worth nothing and you have to buy the cheapest one.

      • Disqus

        If your money isn’t worth anything then how can you buy anything at all?

      • Diego

        Worth nothing*, you know what I mean.

      • Diego

        You know what I mean

    • abhi0n0nakul

      that should be true but even they dont know it yet for sure.. it will be sure after 6s comes and gets a teardown

    • M L

      Where did you find this? I cannot see anything on Apple’s site about this.

  • iOS Kush

    This is a tough call… Stay on 8.4 jailbroken or upgrade to iOS 9 GM.. a iOS 9 jailbreak would be heavenly! Especially if it arrives before Saturdays big game. 8pm MSU vs OREGON It’s going down!

    • Kyle McNulty – Mclovin341

      I’d just update, I upgraded from 8.4 jailbroken last night. Getting rather bored of jailbreaks these days feel unsecure and hardly any new good content

      • Disqus

        It’s different for everyone, so the argument you make is moot. For instance, I can counter your vote to update with my vote to stay.. I need tethering and f.Lux and don’t care about ‘new good content’.

      • iOS Kush

        I hear ya. I have it for simple tweak phantom, type status, springtomize don’t have much on my 6plus.

      • CokePokes


      • Exorth

        Aww yis, CokesPokes you’re my fav dev.

  • StarShootex

    If I’m on iOS 9 Public Beta and I want to update to the final version of iOS 9 coming out September 16, do I have to restore my device to iOS 8.4 then update OTA or can I just update while I’m on the Public Beta?

    • japplemusik

      They final version of iOS 9 that will be released to the general public next Wednesday will show up as an update just like the public betas!

      • Igor

        No we will get ios 9.1 public beta 1…

      • japplemusik

        How do you know?

      • StarShootex

        If that’s the case then how can I update from iOS 9 Public Beta to iOS 9?

      • Unenroll your phone from the Beta Program

  • Riley Freeman

    i cant backup my phone in icloud so i am hoping this works for public beta. I was supposed to take my phone in for warranty today too.

  • El Cap GM is out as well.

    • Matheus Lisboa

      Not for me, yet

      • It’s there, just taking its sweet time. I’d say within an hour it will popup for Devs. Same goes for those Devs who haven’t seen IOS 9 GM yet. or the new beta (9.1) for that matter.

      • Matheus Lisboa

        Seen it where? there’s no OTA for the iOS 9 GM, only at the dev center

      • Dev Center has everything listed for me right now.

      • Matheus Lisboa

        seen it now

      • Matheus Lisboa

        and isn’t it a bit too soon for a GM on El Cap?

      • jaysoncopes

        A lot of public beta testers received a copy of the El Capitan GM in their purchases folder in the Mac App Store as well.

  • Anonomous.TECH.man

    So how do I get this if I’m on the public beta

    • Wait till the 16th or… wait a few hours for it to show up on.. google…. That’s the best I got on here. 🙂

  • I want the new fish wallpapers 🙁

  • latinlegacy

    9.1 beta battery widget is gone

    • James G

      It’s a beta.

  • Would’ve installed this if it didn’t mean giving up my 8.4 jailbreak *sigh*

  • Matheus Impieri

    Does anyone got the IPSW link?

  • Matheus Impieri

    There are any problem if I install a IPSW without an UDID account?

    • jacinto pinto

      it wont let you activate until you register

      • Fredl

        even in the GM?

      • jacinto pinto

        yes because its not a public version, its only for developers, i dont know if they´re going to release a public GM but if they do you can install without any problems.

      • Jeiivy

        you don’t need a dev account for Gm, Gm is the same version as for the public release.

      • nedisonn

        GMs don’t need the same activation…

      • latinlegacy

        i been un activated and on all the beats on my iphone 6 plus and watch

  • iOS Kush

    just got my hands on some links to iOS 9 GM. I need to find out if Live Photos etc. work on non “S” iPhones. No one seems to have an answer?? or care I guess.

    • Andrew Breyen

      From what i’ve heard, the live photos needs the updated 12MP camera of S phones

    • MrSizzle

      hook me up with that file, please. or, where can i get the torrent for an iPhone 5s? thx.

  • Can’t we non developers install GM by any means?

    • Matheus Lisboa

      yes, download the IPSW and restore using it on iTunes

      • No disclaimers naa? And no precautions

  • DrQuack32

    Ok so here is one. I did the old ‘Public beta’ and deleted the profile so I could update to the dev profile.

    Can I update to the dev beta if I download and install? Or does that work around not work and I have to specifically have my UDID registered. If I have to have it registered, I’ll wait.

    • Lamoni Woulard

      It worked for me. So you should be able to.

  • mrjayviper

    do I need to have a developer acct or have my UDID registered before installing GM? thanks! 🙂

    • VITICO

      Nah.. You can find links on youtube showing you how to install it with out your udid registered.

      • mrjayviper

        Can I use iTunes restore(hold option key and press restore) to update my unregistered iDevices running 8.4.x to iOs 9.x GM? thanks a lot

  • David Williams

    Yes! I’ve upgraded to the ios 9.1 beta! The only thing I’ve noticed are the addition of a lot of new emojis.

  • Andrew Hildebrand

    I’m very concerned about the performance of my iPhone 6. On Beta 5, control center was still not as smooth as it was on iOS 8. I was expecting this to be fixed on the Gold Master but it’s still not as smooth. This really bothers me because the GM is supposed to be the same as the final release. Apple said it was supposed to be smoother..well its not for me.

  • New emojy

  • Quang

    So Apple really removed the text selection by swiping 2 fingers on iPhone keyboard entirely after beta 1?!? How disappointed :/
    The feature is for ipad keyboard only 🙁

  • serjiz s

    I lost 2g network afrer 8.4.1, in 2g mode, no calls sms internet on my 5S.. Really hurts

  • Tom

    anyone got the news all missing from the GM??
    iPhone 5S

    • Macmaniman

      i have yet to see the news app on any Beta
