Apple seeds iOS 9.1 beta 5 to developers

On Monday, October 12, Apple released a brand new beta for developers to get their hands on and try out.

Apple on Monday officially released a new beta of its upcoming iOS 9.1, this marking the fifth release for the software — just under one week since the release of beta 4. This release is build 13B137, and it’s unknown at this point what’s new in the latest release. It’s available both for developers and public beta testers.

To apply the update over-the-air on your device running an iOS beta, go to Settings → General → Software Update. Public beta testers signed for the Apple Beta Software Program can also install this update.

Release notes accompanying the download contain no mention of new features, with an over-the-air update prompt stating that this beta version of iOS 9.1 contains bug fixes and unspecified improvements.

According to release notes, developers should look out for a few remaining issues related to iCloud Keychain, PhotoKit, Restore and UIKit, signaling that a public launch is around the corner.

More important than the pretty backdrops, however, iOS 9.1 contains compatibility support for the forthcoming iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and developer support for the Live Photos feature on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
