Yesterday Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 9 to developers which comes with handful features and improvements for iOS device. Officially in order to install any beta versions of iOS 9 you must have register your iPhone's UDID with Apple in order to enjoy testing beta versions on your device.

As I said you will need an Apple's developer account or know someone who has a developer account and can register your iPhone's or iPad UDID..

But just like iOS 8 beta, a number of users are reporting that they’re able to successfully install iOS 9 beta on their iPhonr or iPad without registering UDID.
