    Hi everyone. Sorry if I sound like a noob but I have some questions in regards of iOS 9 public beta.

    First of all, I want to apologize if my english is not perfect. My primary language is french but I do my best to write in english the best I can.

    I installed the PB on my iPad. My first question is, if I keep the beta until the GM version is released, will I still receive beta updates for 9.1 for exemple or I need to register my device over again? And if my device is still registred, can I stop the updates on a particular device without unregistred my apple id for the whole program?

    Second one, if I just want to downgrade to 8.4 without a backup, just want a fresh downgrade install ( for exemple, if I want to give my ipad for use with another apple id) can I simply downgrade via iTunes or I have to download the software elsewhere?

    And the last one, if I keep the beta until the final release, is it better to restore my ipad and start as new on the final release or your currwnt back up file who was used during the entire beta program is still good and don't keep bug or glitch included qith the beta?

    Yes, you'll be able to get updates for future beta versions, and yes, you can unenroll your device on Apple's beta program website or just delete the profile from Settings > General > Profiles

    You can either put your device into DFU mode with iTunes open and it'll download the software for you and restore it automatically. Or, you can install 8.4 from which is a site that gathers all of the official Apple download links in one place. Then plug your device in, go to the device summary page, hold shift (windows) or alt (mac) and press restore, then browse for the 8.4 file and double click it.

    Some people do a clean install and some don't. It's usually not an issue, but it's up to you.
