Apple today seeded the fifth beta of iOS 9 to developers for testing purposes, more than two weeks after releasing the fourth beta and two months after unveiling the new operating system at the 2015 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Apple has also seeded a third beta of iOS 9 to public beta testers, which is identical to the fifth beta developers have received. Developers can also download Xcode 7 beta 5.

The update, build number 13A4325c, is available as an over-the-air update and can also be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center.

Today's beta introduces new wallpapers and heralds the imminent release of a WiFi calling option for AT&T users. For a full list of changes in the beta, make sure to check out our iOS 9 Beta 5 Tidbits post.

iOS 9 beta 4 brought the return of Home Sharing for music and it fixed a bug that had prevented the iPhone's volume buttons from being used as a camera shutter. It also introduced a new look for Handoff in the app switching interface.


In addition to providing developers with five betas, Apple has also seeded two iOS 9 betas to public beta testers. The company plans to release iOS 9 to the public in the fall, likely alongside new iPhones.

Curious how you are able to know before most everyone can see it in their portal or over the air?
Does it start rolling out to certain developers first?

When the last beta came out, I was on PB and I deleted that profile and downloaded the dev Beta. Will I be able to get this Dev beta ota, or will I have to do that trick again in order to get it?

If you loaded the profile again, you will need to remove it again to get the developer version or wait for the public release.

I am a part of the beta program, but I haven't tried a beta since 8.4. Is this beta stable enough yet?

Running 8.4 on my 128GB 6+.

I'm in the public beta program. not a developer. Sorry, time to get new contacts. :(

I may or may not have peed a little out of excitement. I love beta testing, it makes me feel like a hero for anyone who doesn't. We test it, risk our phones (some of us with our daily devices), and live with it! I love seeing the improvement every 2 ish weeks.

Your UDID is not needed for OTA updates. You would need to remove the public beta profile to get a beta other than a public beta.

It is pretty stable for me. But there is no guarantee which apps will work and which not. I have one game that I don't care too much about that does not work and also the new Apple news app keeps crashing 90% of the time I try to use it. Otherwise I don't have any issues and I use it on my main phone. Battery life is fantastic.

so use it on your own risk, there is no guarantee that your most favorite/important app will work.

EDIT: btw, I use the dev beta ... but shouldn't be a too different experience from the public beta.
