Apple released iOS 9 Beta 3 to developers Wednesday, adding support for the Apple Music streaming service. Making good on their promise from WWDC, Apple has now launched a public version of the beta for early-adopters looking to try the latest features.
iOS 9 beta 3 allows developers to use Apple Music on their iPhones and iPads, taking advantage of on-demand music streaming, the new and improved iTunes Radio with the live-broadcasting Beats 1 at the center, and Connect, a new social network connecting artists to their fans.
With iOS 9, Apple plans to launch context-aware search and suggestions, accessible from a new panel on the far left side of the homescreen. A new low-power mode lets iOS users extend the uptime of their devices, but even without it Apple promises an extra hour of battery life for the average iPhone user.
In order to sign up for the beta, users need to login to AppleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dedicated portal with their iCloud addresses, which will switch on access to the new build on all their devices.
Unlike developer beta builds, the public betas will also be upgradeable to the final version of iOS 9 later this year.
