    Apple today seeded the fifth beta of iOS 9.1 to registered developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fourth iOS 9.1 beta and two weeks after releasing iOS 9.0.2, the second minor bug fix update to iOS.

    The new iOS 9.1 beta, build 13B137 (13B5137 for public testers), is available as an over-the-air update and through Apple's Developer Center. There's a second build, 13B139 (13B5139 for public testers), that's unique to the newly released iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

    iOS 9.1 offers new features and compatibility updates for upcoming Apple products like the new fourth-generation Apple TV and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The iPad Pro ships with two accessories, the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, both of which are deeply integrated into the operating system.

    The update includes Unicode 8, adding support for emoji like the taco, burrito, cheese wedge, middle finger, unicorn head, and more, along with a new Messages option in the Settings app, allowing users to disable photos for their contacts.

    It is not yet known when iOS 9.1 will be released to the public, but it's likely it will come in late October, coinciding with the launch of the new Apple TV. iOS 9.1 is required for setting up the new Apple TV through an iOS device.

    Hopefully this means we are that much closer to its final release.

    Release next week? Isn't this now the third beta in a row on a weekly release?

    Looking forward to this being released.

    Still on 8.3. I wonder if 9.1 will avoid my metadata in iTunes getting mangled even if I have Apple Music turned off.

    9.1 cannot come soon enough.
    Been lucky that I didn't seem to notice any bugs on my 6S on 9.0.2, but seems like many people are having issues with 9.0.x.

    My guess is two weeks, along with the release of OSX 10.11.1

    Probably a silly question but whenever 9.1 is officially released will the people on the beta receive the update to go from beta to final release or will I have to do something else?

    I hope this fixes the zoomed wallet issue its so annoying.

    Also stops some of the lag. A brand new 6s should not have any lag issues.

    It'd be funny if this beta "equalizes" any inconvenient differences between the two versions of A9 ;)

    "Downloading".

    Who cares?
    You could use this for something like:

    Adding a new bookmark in Safari generates garbage characters on iPad since iOS 9.0. I hope this has being fixed.

    Not so useless, you see? That bs is the new "First!"
