I know it's coming out tonight for developers but is there a way of registering it without paying the big fee? For example you can register your UDID for your phone and only pay $5 and have access to the beta
iOS 9 beta, watchOS 2 beta, and Xcode 7 beta are all available now on the developer website (I'm downloading them right now actually). It says that iOS 9 is required to install watchOS 2, and has some somewhat funky installation instructions.
Developers are allowed to register 100 devices for testing. By paying someone to "register your UDID" to install the beta, that developer is breaking the rules, as you're not allowed to sell them like that. I believe the developer account can even be banned.
That being said... If I recall correctly, weren't people able to install iOS 8 beta last year without having their devices registered?
Out of curiosity could someone post the instructions on how the beta is installed? I've been wondering how it would be done since the Watch isn't managed through iTunes.
On your phone, or on your watch?You send the Provisioning Profile to yourself through email or download it on your iPhone running iOS 9 beta 1. Then, you open the profile and install it to your phone.
On your phone, or on your watch?
Because it gives you the option to install the profile on your watch.
Curious as well if you can still restore the watch to OS 1 if you want to.
I'm not sure about the watch, the only way I've read to do it is send it to your phone and open it on there.
I'm working on getting the beta installed on all of my devices right now, so if I mess up with my watch I can let you know
Funny how when it comes to an actual software update people hesitate but a beta? omg I need it now!
Curious if you need to registered you watch' udid as well before updating, or if you can just update iPhone to iOS9, then send the provisioning profile to the watch and then update the watch...
Nearest Apple Store is in another country, so I'd rather be safe then sorry
