    I've been out of the iOS dev game for a few years, so I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I assume the public beta that was released today is the same as the beta version that came out yesterday?

    Thanks in advance.

    The developer version is always one step further.

    Should be. Same build number, no reported limitations. The only thing I can think of is that the Public beta has the feedback app.

    In this case iOS 9 Beta 3 and Public Beta 1 are completely identical. Same build number even.

    Thanks, everyone. I've casually played with the iOS dev releases over the years even after I left my job as an iOS dev, but now I'm back in. After working with so many different platforms over the two years in between as we've been building up a company I work for now, it's hard to keep all of the different releases and whatnot straight!

    Wrong. Yesterday's DP3 is exactly the same as today's PB1. Same goes for OS X.

    All 8.3 and 8.4 Public Betas were identical to the DP version of the time. (Releasing on same days, minus the initial 8.3 beta launch for PB. That was a Thursday just like iOS 9 PB was.)

    I wonder if it will stay that way, I thought they usually release on the same day.
    Maybe it's only the first Pb they choose to do it on a different day?

    From here on out for all of iOS 9 will be the same day as dev builds. (With Yosemite last summer and iOS last March the initial Public Beta 1 builds have been Thursday. But builds 2+ have been the normal Monday/Tuesday along side DP builds.)

    So iOS 9 dev and public betas will be released on the same day from here on out? I assumed dev was released more often.

    If Apple continues the same pattern they have with previous Public Betas, then yes.

    The dev builds are not more often at all. The only difference is they get access sooner by 1-3 builds. (Last PB for iOS 8.4 was dev4 and public3, iOS 9 is dev3 public1)

    We should see dev 4 and public 2 at the same time in 2-3 weeks.
