Here is the official method for installing iOS 9 on all your Apple devices.

The requirements are:

Settings / General / About / Model and search the model identifier on your favorite search engine.

Use the direct method if you don’t currently have a torrent client installed… Tixati, uTorrent

2. Open iTunes and click on your Device Summary. Click on the serial number and copy the UDID string letter by letter to your favorite text editing program.

3. Head to eBay and search iOS 9 or go to if you have a membership. On ebay ask a seller to enroll your device on their Apple Developer Account by sending them your UDID string that you copied from iTunes on your text editor.

Each developer can enroll up to 100 devices and accounts may remain active for a year depending on their membership so you may ask them what their account status is as well. The price that I payed for my registration was $2.29, however are always different and registration wait times are too. Check seller feedback for authenticity. Know that the iOS 9 Preview is beta software and may contain bugs or glitches and is an unfinished build state.

The public beta for iOS 9 starts in the month of July and you may also sign up for it at

List of noticeable changes and bugs

– Siri has a new light Interface using design elements from the Apple Watch

– The app switcher has moved opened apps to the left and Legacy Spotlight is back with Proactive – Top Pull down Spotlight remains but there are two blur frames causing it to glitch when pulling it down currently and canceling from the left spotlight sometimes doesn’t bring you back to home screen.

– Multitasking currently only supports iOS core system apps from what I have seen and pulling video from a player only works when a notification is shown during playback. It currently only supports one sided multitasking and not two fluid apps at the time but it should be addressed in a future build. You can’t split apps into the center currently.

– Only one new wallpaper was added to the iOS 9 Preview Build.

– New Keyboard has CUT/COPY/PASTE Bar on top that does not go away when not in use.

– Icon placement to the left is not as responsive as previous iOS versions on the home screen.

Spotlight bugs can be eliminated after restarting your device. Side by side multitasking is only available to the iPad Air 2 Model and not the retina mini.

WWDC 2015 Dated for June 8-12 – Predictions


The yearly Developers Conference is the Apple event where new announcements of new products and software occur.

As of today, there have been close to no rumors regarding the event minus the release of the iOS 8.4 beta music app which integrates a more Deiter Rams color template and adds more functionality such as a mini player, full-screen album artwork once again (thank you apple), a recently added albums view on top of your artists list, and overall – just makes it feel more like the genuine iOS 6 app with a dropdown list selection list consisting of Artists, Songs, Albums, and Genre’s.

With iOS 8.3 released to the public last week… being the most performance and bug-fixing iOS update ( not just emoji’s) there are little clues as to what design changes could be coming, however here are my predictions for iOS 9 if there is one.

iOS 9 will bring new 3D animations to the entire platform, ranging from icons that change according to a users preference between round circles or round squares and color themes that blend into the surroundings like a chameleon.

Glass elements on top of 2D based on gyroscope positioning.

Force Touch adds a universal UI switch to bring up siri from anywhere by holding your finger on the screen for a while, or a radial UI of Control Center and Settings combined to select your wifi network from your control center… Putting an alarm clock by swiping down on the time, changing music using the mini player.




A new Apple TV gets siri to open up channel apps – a kids mode as well, iOS App Store to browse new apps, check the weather, family calendar syncing, and an overall easier way to swipe across apps with a new apple tv remote app with Siri. Game Center on Apple TV adds communication between friends while gaming, adds music integration.

An update to the iPad Mini adds force touch, a new layer of User Interface dimensions as well as a varient of the A8X. The iPad Air gets a 4K display if this year is possible but I think it’ll just be an announcement – The iPad’s haven’t been selling as much I think.

An updated version of the Apple Airport is announced, slimmer design. – Maybe
