    I'm not getting the information that I need via Apple support so I thought I'd ask here. I am a developer and have access to all the betas. It appears that many people are able to simply update their iPhones via OTA updates with betas, but I can't figure out how to do so. My process now is simply back up, restore to new iOS, then restore backup to get all my stuff back on there. I've put in all my UDID but it seems like I'm missing a step in order to do incremental updates without having to go through the long process of restoring everything every time (which the Apple lady said probably had to do). Any knowledge out there? Thanks in advance.

    When I went from 9.0 Beta 5 to 9.1 Beta 1 all I had to do was download a copy of the IPSW file, shift click (on Windows) on the Check for Upgrade button in iTunes, select my file then let it run the upgrade. It did not go through a restore process. I assume you are using the restore button versus the upgrade button in your process.

    Are you saying you are not getting new beta update notifications when you check for software update on the phone?
