iOS 9.1 public beta is now up for grabs

It was just a few hours ago when we told you about the first beta of iOS 9.1 becoming available for developers to tinker with. And here we are now, not one day later, and the first public beta of iOS 9.1 is already up for grabs.

This is the fastest we’ve ever seen Apple move from a developer beta release to one targeted at general consumers. It’s a bit of an odd situation because iOS 9 will only be out on September 16.

If you’re interested in trying out iOS 9.1, you need to enroll in Apple’s beta software program, after which the update notification should pop up on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

iOS 9.1 brings with it some new emoji, better performance compared to iOS 9, and some new developer APIs enabling apps to take advantage of 3D Touch and Live Photos. It also includes features for the newly unveiled iPad Pro, gaining support for the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.
