ios 9 header

Apple on Tuesday seeded the fourth beta version of iOS 9.1 to developers. The software is available to registered developers either over-the-air, for those running the latest iOS 9.1 beta, or via Apple’s developer website.

Today’s release comes less than one week after beta 3 was made available to developers, and a month after iOS 9.1 was first introduced during Apple’s iPhone 6s event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

For those who haven’t been following the developer releases, iOS 9.1 brings about a handful of new features such as support for the incoming iPad Pro accessories and Unicode 8, which includes a number of new emoji.

We’re currently installing today’s 9.1 beta, and will let you know if we spot any major changes. If you see something we missed that you feel is worth noting, let us know in the comments below or at

If you’re not a developer, Apple is offering a public beta of iOS 9.1. There’s no word on when the company plans to release a final version of the software, but we should see it sometime this month alongside the new Apple TV.

    Thanks. Anything of interest in the release notes?

  • Wilber Alexander Flores

    Fixes volume problem on iOS 9 inside whatsapp. Now I can send a video or photo and the volume doesn’t drop to 0 . Finally !

    • VITICO

      Hopefully it fixes the notification problem too..

      • Albert

        Are you having issues with push notifications too?

      • VITICO

        Yea man… Since ios 9 was released..

      • I think this problem and the volume problem is a matter of the WhatsApp team make the app compatible with iOS 9 and not an iOS 9 bug itself. But as we know WhatsApp is Always the last one to update so let’s deal with it.

        Yesterday it was updated with this starred messages thing, but I don’t see bugfixes on the changelog. Let’s hope…

      • VITICO

        I know what you saying about whatsapp.. That’s the first thing I looked for when I saw they updated the app..

  • Newgunnerr

    Please give me a 9.1 jailbreak. PLEASE

    • Cristian B

  • Jackson Grong

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    I dont have 9.1 yet but I do have this issue which I see no one else talking about. My News app doesnt work over cellular….on wifi it works great, but not on cellular. It says “Cant refresh right now. there may be a problem with the server or network. please try again later”. Anyone else get this?

    • That_Fruitarian

      Do you have cellular data enabled for the news app? Make sure it’s turned on.

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        Oh I do believe me. I thought that was the problem but it isn’t.

  • Mustang5Oh

    Ever since iOS 9.0 and still on iOS 9.1 my phone will randomly get notifications with no notification sounds. My wife is on regular iOS 9.0 and she has noticed the same thing. I’ve submitted this bug to apple via the feedback app yet it still continues. Anyone else notice this?

    • VITICO

      Yea.. There’s other people having this same issue.. I hope 9.1 fixes it

    • Loke1988

      I’d swear my phone makes no sound half the time.

  • NeftyCorrea

    alright sounds good . it finished

  • It’s also available to Public Beta Testers. I already have it and trying to find out whats new.

  • Viktor_Zweig

    What opinion? Do you even understand what you wrote?

  • Jayy

    Tons of things!

  • Paul Edmund

    Still laggy and stuttering animations on 5S. A little better than 9.0.2.

  • ClaudieX X

    9.0.2 on my iPhone 6 and all the external on the go batteries bought on Apple Store London, 5 months ago that worked perfect until yesterday, now are not certified by Apple… what the hell…

  • Spotlight Icon Search, Multi Icon Mover for starters

  • iOS Kush

    He’s just lost. It’s okay everyone.

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    Activator (so that we don’t have to use those infernally delicate and flimsy home buttons and power buttons), CCsettings (anything to customise the CC toggles), and the ability to disable Voice Control…for starters!

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    For those who don’t have 3D Touch on their devices and cannot enjoy these nice features have to rely on other tools, and Assistive Touch is awful, I use that when I’m waiting for a jailbreak, Activator is a lot more direct and effective. Customising CC toggles to add 3G / 4G toggles, tethering toggle, or to rearrange some toggles or remove what Apple already put (I for one am not a heavy Bluetooth user to justify having that toggle smack-bang in the middle each time I invoke CC, I simply don’t use it). NC widgets cannot allow you to activate Cellular Data by the press of a button, it’ll take you to the settings pane but you still have to toggle the switch on, whilst having it as a CC toggle is so much more convenient. I also would like to completely disable Voice Control, I don’t use it nor do I use Siri either (there’s a switch for that and why not VC?). Jailbreaking still has a LOT of appeal left in my view and will probably always have.
