The update is available to those enrolled in the Apple Developer Program, hence you'll be required to part with $99 worth of cash annually in order to get to grips with Cupertino's pre-release software. If you're all signed up however, and do happen to have iOS 9.1 beta installed on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, then you can grab the third beta over the air. Simply make sure that your device is charged beyond the 50% mark and connected to WiFi. Once that prerequisite has been followed, it's just a case of navigating to Settings > General > Software Update. Here, you'll be able to grab the third beta and install it onto your device.

Keep in mind that you'll be required to restart your iOS device for the installation process to complete.

Though today's release is meant solely for developers, but if you're interested, then you'll be pleased to learn that iOS 9.1 is also available as a Public Beta right from Apple itself. For more details on how to download and install it onto your device, then simply follow our guide posted here: iOS 9.1 Public Beta Now Available, Here’s How To Download It Right Now.

If you're a developer and happen to be sitting on an older beta of iOS 9.1, then we recommend that you make the leap to the third pre-release build of Cupertino's new mobile firmware so that you can reap the benefits of its bug fixes and performance enhancements. And yes, in case you're wondering at this point, iOS 9.1 beta 3 is a pure bug fix and performance enhancing release. But if we do happen to find something which Apple managed to slip under our radar, then we'll definitely highlight it here.

If you're planning to install iOS 9.1 beta from scratch, and given that you're a developer or a non-developer, we highly recommend that you pull off the feat on a device which you do not consider as your daily driver. Betas are incomplete software and you wouldn't want them to handle your daily tasks. But if you're feeling courageous enough, then you may go ahead installing it on your primary device.

You've been warned though!

If you happen to install iOS 9.1 beta 3 onto your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, then be sure to let us know about it in the comments section below.
