Apple has been slowly and steadily pushing updates for its pre-release software for quite a while, aiming to make the overall experience as smooth as possible for the end user. Today, the company saw it fit to push out the fourth beta of iOS 9.1, which is due for release when the 12.9-inch iPad Pro hits shelves some time in November. Apart from that, the Cupertino tech mammoth also pushed out a third beta of tvOS, the software that powers the new 2015 Apple TV.

If you already have a previous beta of iOS 9.1 installed, then simply navigate to Settings > General > Software Update to grab the fourth beta straight away. Also be vary of the fact that your device must be charged beyond the 50% mark if you want to go ahead with the installation. Lastly, you must be connected to a WiFi network in order to download the update. If you have less than 50% battery on your device but are connected to WiFi, then the installation process won't go forward in that case, and you'll be required to connect your device to a power outlet.
