    hi i know iOS 9 beta 2 isn't out yet but i'm a little concerned that if i update to it that my iOS devices will be locked out as i'm not a developer and i didn't pay for udid activation i will say i've tried iOS betas before i tried all the iOS 7 betas and the last few iOS 8 betas and i never had any problems any thoughts ?

    I was thinking as i have an iPad and an iPhone i was thinking to update the iPad first and if it goes ok then do the iPhone.

    I have it installed on my device right now. It's like a GM, it's ready for release for sure.

    You're clearly not a developer then,otherwise you would know, it's horrifically buggy, crashes, and the battery life is dire.

    iOS 9 is not for public use, and you are violating the terms of service of iOS and this forum.


    Developers like myself are actively reporting the hoards of bugs to Apple, it won't be anywhere near ready for prime release for a few months, and it's certainly not anywhere near GM state.

    Not quite sure which version you've been using or what planet you are on.

    I'm violating the rules? Lol. The OP wants to know if it will be safe to install WITHOUT a UDID.

    I just replied in a sarcastic manner.

    Of course it would be safe to update without a registered UDID just like it has been for years now.

    Make sure beforehand, but unless Apple has changed something in iOS 9, updates don't do UDID checks, only restores do.

    First of all, you should just wait for iOS public beta in early July. Developer betas are extremely flaky and many of your apps will fail to function properly. Public betas will not check for UUID, whether you use restore of update method.

    Now, regarding iOS 9 developer beta. Installing these betas require UUID authentication when installing or upgrading as new or from restore.

    I upgraded my new iPad Air on 8.2 to iOS 9 Beta 1 and there were no UDID issues. But I understand the OP is actually asking about OTA updates from current beta version to a newer one. Then there is a risk of a failed UDID check, which used to happen before, on IOS 7 at least. That's the million dollar question.

    Well, you probably chose "upgrade" option, which does not check UUID. Restore from backup or setup as new will most certainly require UUID verification.

    ...the usual yearly beta-tickling.

    I understand the itch. I haven't developed much of anything in 5 years, but I still keep my developer membership. Waste of money? most likely, but I know what I'm getting into.

    I just had to downgrade and lost 3 years of messages because iOS 9 is so buggy, I can't sync with my computer nor can I sync with my Apple Watch constantly. It's not GM. It's like inbetween Alpha and Beta at this point. iOS 8 B1 was more stable IMO.

    The only realistic answer there is "I don't know".
    I remember there was a beta or two during the iOS 7 beta period (if I recall correctly) that actually enforced the UDID check, sometimes even after you already updated to it (not necessarily even in the beginning when you are installing it), and various people went to use their phones at one point having it on some screen informing them that they weren't using a registered device or something to that effect.

    That reminds me.. Apple needs to move iMessage storage to iCloud instead of on the devices... Facebook messenger is killing iMessage right now... If it wasn't for phone number integration.

    This. It's the ONLY reason I have to restore from a backup

    Can you fathom the amount of storage needed to do that? All the attachments people leave in their messages? Not to mention this is a security risk as it is no longer client side and would be less secure. Not going to happen anytime soon.
