Apple has released the third beta of its iOS 9 mobile platform to developers on Wednesday. Apple’s head of Internet software Eddy Cue had promised last week that the new iOS 9 beta would bring Apple Music. The new build 13A4293f is available through the company’s over-the-air updating system. You can also download it through the Apple Developer Center.
New iOS 9 brings a dedicated selfies folder
The new iOS 9 beta has introduced a dedicated selfies folder to your device. The selfies folder resides in the Photos app. The software automatically moves all the photos taken with the front camera to the new selfies folder. There have been reports that the upcoming iPhone 6S would feature an upgraded 5-megapixel front camera for selfies. The front camera will have a built-in flash and 1080p recording capabilities.
The new iOS 9 beta also brings Apple Music service and the Beats 1 radio station. Further, it has a Screenshots folder, the News app, and a new two-factor authentication system. Siri has become much smarter in iOS 9. It can create contextual reminders, and now Siri doesn’t make that beeping noise when the device is in silent mode. The iOS 9 allows devices to learn your habits and act on that information.
iOS 9 public beta to arrive later this month
Initially, Apple had refused to let users choose the Apple Music audio quality that songs stream at. Eddy Cue later said that the quality depends on whether you are listening over cellular or WiFi. The audio quality is relatively lower when you are on a mobile network. But it is going to change, as indicated by the third iOS 9 beta. With the latest build, Apple lets you listen at “high quality” even when you are on a cellular network. However, Apple warns that enabling the “high quality” experience may consume more cellular data and songs may take a little longer to start playing.
The iOS 9 is currently available only to developers. However, Apple is planning to introduce the public iOS 9 beta later this month. The final version of the software will arrive this fall with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
