    Is it just a normal upgrade such as from 9 to 9.0.1 or would I have to restore all my data?

    If you're doing the Public Beta, it's a simple OTA update. You won't have to restore a thing.

    Just do an encrypted backup in iTunes, before you update. This way if you aren't happy with the beta, you can restore back to the 9.0.1.

    I like beta 2 real well.

    Thanks for the reply. Is an encrypted backup a requirement? Can't it be unencrypted?

    It can be unencrypted, but I would encrypt it. Check it: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205220

    Good tip! I always avoided encrypted backup as I am the only one using this PC and also for easier manipulation of the backup itself. But I did not know encrypted backup saves additions things like passwords. Shall start using that from now on.
