iOS 9.1 beta 4 is now available to download. Today’s iOS 9.1 seed has been made available only a week after beta 3 was released.

The fourth beta carrying the build number 13B136 should be available as an over-the-air-update for users who are already running iOS 9.1 beta 3 on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The update can be invoked by heading to the Software Update section in the Settings app on your iOS device. The latest beta can also be downloaded manually by users who are registered and enrolled members of the Apple Developer Program. Simply head over to the Apple Developer Center to download the latest IPSW file.


With iOS 9.0 having released last month, the onslaught of iOS 9.1 betas is indeed an interesting one, especially when the final public version of iOS has been met with quite a few bugs and complaints since its release. Where iOS 9.1 beta 3 carried a bunch of bug fixes and performance improvements, in addition to new wallpapers and a brief report on existing bugs, it remains unclear what the fourth beta has installed for us.

Not too much is known about iOS 9.1 as a whole, but we do know that the firmware will bring in support for the upcoming iPad Pro. Apart from this, iOS 9.1 will also include support for Unicode 8, which will see the iOS devices support emoji like the taco, burrito, cheese wedge, even the middle finger, and more. There’s also an added option to disable photos for contacts in the Messages app.


There is no word on when the final version of iOS 9.1 will be made public with Apple likely to roll out at least one more beta before going public with the firmware.

As for now, you can jump the gun and register yourself in the Apple Developer Program to download and check out iOS 9.1 beta 4. Apple will likely release the same build for those registered on the Public Beta Program soon.
