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

The new iOS 9.1 beta, build 13B136, is available as an over-the-air update and through Apple's Developer Center. Apple has also released a third tvOS beta.

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 clear 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.

Hopefully they fixed the unlock lag, where the phone is unresponsive for about 2-5 seconds after unlocking with touch ID.

I'm still on the 9.1 Public Beta Program version. How can I install the fourth Beta for developers? I'm presuming I delete the profile and check for OTA update?

Would appreciate some help. Thanks ;)

EDIT: Wait, hold on. I'm on the Public Beta 9.1 and have also received a 9.1 Public Beta 4 OTA update. Is this the same version/build as the developers' Beta 4?

iOS 9.1 PB4 is also available as well - currently downloading at the moment - the PB downloads are exactly the same as the developers

Me and you both. I don't even have TouchID--I have the iPhone 5. Yet my home screen is unresponsive for a bit after unlocking the phone as well as after closing an app.
