Apple has finally released the very first iOS 9 public beta today to users who signed up for it. This is the same build which was released to devs yesterday but first ever for the public. iOS 9 public beta 1 sports all the features that iOS 9 Beta 3 brought yesterday. These include:

  • Brings support for Apple Music
  • Access to Beats 1
  • Apple Music app
  • New folders on iPad
  • Two-factor authentication - a very big step toward increased security of Apple accounts

After the usual rage around Apple Music, the major feature here is two-factor authentication.

You can download iOS 9 public beta 1 and try out the latest iOS 9 version by signing up on the Apple beta site. iOS 9 is compatible with the following devices:

If you are trying out the first iOS 9 public beta, don't forget to let us know what you think of the looks of this upcoming operating system. iOS 9 was released at WWDC keynote earlier in June. This year Apple's mobile operating system focused on functionality and performance improvements. Bringing the long-awaited multitasking features, iOS 9 also brings in some other changes in apps like News, Maps, and Notes. The OS brings faster performance, added functionality, user-focused features, multitasking for iPad, and more.
