After the successful launch of the OS X El Capitan, watchOS 2, and the iOS 9 GM seeds, Apple is now requesting that developers submit their app updates to take advantage of the new features present in its latest OS updates. You can read Apple’s bulletin via the Developer Center.

Submit apps for iOS 9 OS X El Capitan watchOS 2

It seems like WWDC 2015 was forever ago, but now we’ve finally reached the point where the technologies revealed during Apple’s summer developer conference will begin to see the light of day publicly.

Apple also sent out an email to developers alerting them to submit apps:

Submit your apps today

iOS 9 and watchOS 2 are scheduled to release on September 16th, followed by OS X El Capitan, two weeks later, on September 30.

Which OS update are you most looking forward to? And is there one individual feature that you’re most anticipating?

    which one is the GM ? 9.0 os 9.1 I am overly confused.

    • Matheus Lisboa

      9.0… 9.1 is a beta 1

    • Jack McKinnon

      GM stands for Golden Master and is the final version. iOS 9 is finished so it is the GM. iOS 9.1 on the other hand only started development so that is beta 1 and not the GM. The 9.1 GM will come out in a month or so when it is finished. GM come out just before the public version but they are identical so don’t worry about bugs. The reason Apple releases GM versions before the public gets it is to make sure developers have plenty of time to update their apps before the release. Most iOS 8 apps will be compatible with iOS 9 but it is done so the average Joe doesn’t update his iPhone and then one of his apps doesn’t work.

    If I’m on iOS 9 Public Beta, how do I update to the version of iOS 9 coming out next week?

    • japplemusik

      You should already have received an update for iOS 9.1 public beta 1, no?

    • Jack McKinnon

      You will receive iOS 9.1 beta 1. If you have already updated to iOS 9.1 beta, it is too late and you will have to downgrade using iTunes and lose your info but if you are still on the iOS 9 beta you can. Go to Settings, General, Profiles. In there you should see something like iOS Beta Software Profile (Don’t remember the exact name but you will find it). Tap on it and then choose delete profile. You will then have to restart your iPhone so do so. After your iPhone reboots the Feedback Assistant app will be gone and iOS 9.1 beta 1 should be gone from software update. Then just wait for the iOS 9 official release and update through settings (iTunes will not recognise it as it will think you are already on 9.0). You can do the same thing every time apple releases an iOS public beta but it is different for the developer versions.

      Hope I helped.

      • StarShootex

        That all makes sense… But I’m still a bit perplexed. If I delete the profile then what iOS will I be on? Because from the very start, the only way I could get the public beta was by having that profile, so if I delete it now, won’t that malfunction my device?

      • Jack McKinnon

        No, you will stay on the current iOS 9 beta but you won’t be able to update to 9.1 beta. On Wednesday when the stable version of 9 comes out, settings will detect that and you can update.

      • Randall

        Too late I am already on 9.1 beta 1
        I am gonna go home and pray to
        God and see if I can overlap this one with iOS 9 GM otherwise I am gonna lose my text messages :/

  • Nicholas Osborne

    Off topic, but does the iPad Pro support live wallpapers? Also, is the Jupiter wallpaper shown during the keynote available in iOS 9 or iOS 9.1?

  • Matheus Lisboa

    The stable version of ios 9 is the GM, it’s just not out for users, but it’ll be next week, not next month. 9.1 is quite stable still, even being a beta, so I don’t think you should worry so much about downgrading. But if you find some bugs, then yeah, you would have to downgrade to a final version of iOS and loose your info or wait till 9.1 is officially released (a bit before the ipad pro is)

  • Jack McKinnon

    Don’t update to iOS 9.1 beta or otherwise you will be stuck on the beta until either the iOS 9.1 release next month or by downgrading. If you are still on the iOS 9 beta just go to Settings, General, Profiles. In there you should see something like iOS Beta Software Profile (Don’t remember the exact name but you will find it). Tap on it and then choose delete profile. You will then have to restart your iPhone so do so. After your iPhone reboots the Feedback Assistant app will be gone and iOS 9.1 beta 1 should be gone from software update. Then just wait for the iOS 9 official release and update through settings (iTunes will not recognise it as it will think you are already on 9.0).
