    Following yesterday's big media event, Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 9.1 to developers, and now the company has made iOS 9.1 available to public beta testers. iOS 9.1 includes features for the iPad Pro, adding support for accessories like the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, both of which were designed for the larger-screened tablet.

    iOS 9.1 also offers support for Unicode 8, introducing a selection of new emoji like taco, burrito, unicorn face, hot dog, popcorn, turkey, cheese wedge, and more. In the Settings app, users have found a new Siri setting that lets you give voice examples for the "Hey Siri" feature that can be activated whenever the iPhone is connected to power. With the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, this will be essential because "Hey Siri" activation can be used even when an iPhone is not plugged in.

    Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program appear to be receiving the iOS 9.1 beta as an over-the-air update, so it may be available to testers who were previously running iOS 9 beta 5.

    People who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate through Apple's beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and OS X betas.

    iOS 9.1 will likely be released to the public alongside the iPad Pro in November.

    dumb question.. for those running beta, are you able to upgrade to iOS 9 official/regular version once it is released on the 16th? or do we need to restore the phone to get the official iOS 9...?

    So, why have I not received the GM? Let alone 9.1?


    EDIT:

    It didn't pop up automatically, I checked my updates and it appeared at 9.1!

    Wow, I went from PB to GM 9.0 and now 9.1 beta. I hope there's enough housework between releases that there's not going to be crud from earlier releases affecting the new beta. :D

    iOS 9.1 is actually pretty smooth. I have the DP and its running great, since yesterday at least. I have it on both my 6 Plus and iPad Air 2!

    ... and once iOS 9.1 will be GM, Apple will seed the first iOS 9.2 Beta :D

    It's getting hard to keep up with beta's, GM's and public releases nowadays...

    I like it though! It keeps you knowing new stuff is always coming round the next corner!

    Great news, but weird that we get to leap ahead of the GM!

    I'm stuck on the crappy public beta 9.0 so 9.1 will do fine!

    I was hoping for the GM, lol. I'd like to hop off the beta train for a while.

    I am a Public Beta tester. When iOS 9.0 is released to the general public...how do I get rid of getting the beta updates? Do I just delete the profile or how do I go about it?

    I must have been missing something because I never got the Developer push of the GM or 9.1 so I just went and signed up for the public beta and got 9.1 that way. What a pain.

    Yes - just delete the Beta profile to stop receiving beta updates.
