ios 9 1 beta 3

Just one week after the last beta was pushed out to developers, Apple has released a third version of the iOS 9.1 beta to software makers for testing. Like the two previous builds, the new beta comes with a handful of new emoji and, as of the last beta, an option for disabling contact photos in the Messages app.

Update: This build has also been seeded to users on the public beta.

Developers and public beta users can download the software update (with a build number of 13B5130b) over-the-air now. Developers also have the option of getting it from the Apple Developer Center. We’ll keep this post updated with any new changes.

Apple also released iOS 9.0.2 to the public today with additional bug fixes, and the new Mac OS update, El Capitan, was pushed out with many new features.

New Wallpapers

New versions of the three planet wallpapers from iOS 9 have been included in this beta. One other built-in wallpaper has also gotten a makeover.

New Shift and Delete Keys

Apple has made some design changes to the shift and delete keys in this beta. You can see a comparison of the current beta and previous versions of iOS in the tweet below.
