iOS 9 GM Download Available Already
A lot of experts thought Apple would offer iOS 9 GM download links right after the ‘Hey Siri’ special event. The company did just as predictions suggested. The company presented the final beta version of its new iOS 9 firmware to devs and it is already available for download.
Users who were testing iOS 9 betas during summer can use iOS 9 gold master download option through OTA update or directly from the Dev Center [you should be registered with the official Apple Dev Program and have registered UDID in order to test the ‘fruit’ firmwares before they are unveiled to public].
Public Beta testers might also be able to download iOS 9 Golden Master release that is available as 13A340build. This brand new platform should soon become public. We’ve heard Apple could launch it on September 16th.
Users will get a lot of new features once they update to iOS 9. It is unclear if hackers can jailbreak it right away. Pangu team already reported that their exploits found but not released for iOS 8.4.1 firmware were already patched by Apple in iOS latest betas. This means more time is required for finding new holes in the ‘fruit’ mobile OS code and thus the jailbreak will most likely be released later in 2015 or early 2016.
So those of you who can’t wait to see the GM iOS 9 version could download the update from Apple. Since this is the final build of the iPhone firmware you might want to just wait for the company to present the official public version. By that time the App Store will have many apps compatible with iOS 9 and you’ll be able to play games, download applications and discover all the great features this mobile OS brings.
If you are planning to pre-order iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, your new phone will come with iOS 9 pre-installed on it.
