    I should have joined imore a long time ago. Definitely a very helpful site.

    I am a little confused regarding public beta testers getting iOS 9 GM. Do you need a developer account to get the GM? I have never had a developer account. If I delete the profile, and connect to iTunes, will the GM be there?

    I am a little curious because I was also an El Capitan public beta tester and I just received an email thanking me and informing how to get El Capitan GM. I figured maybe the same would go for iOS 9 GM.

    Thank you
    You need access to a developer account to get the GM software directly from Apple. There are ways that don't require that... just be certain that you are dealing with a legit website and not some scammer looking to do you harm.

    Once you have the correct .ispw file, you need to install it via iTunes (shift/option click on UPDATE) to locate the software on your computer... no restrictions a la UDID/developer beta for the GM release.

    Thank you. I suspected that, but, was not 100% sure. I can wait. Public Beta 3 is not too bad. I enjoy finding bugs and providing feedback.

    Where can I get the GM if I'm not registered? I'm on iTunes and I don't see it? I'm reading that some have gotten it without being a developer

    Now that watchOS beta 2 is done, only 3 minutes remaining for iPhone 6+ download. Then to find my iPad model number again and download for iPad. But I'll probably wait until tomorrow for that.

    Pay $99/year for a developer account.

    But your device does NOT need to be registered anywhere to install the GM release. You just need the correct .ipsw for your device.

    Just adding to the confirmation posts. I found the iOS 9 GM via Reddit. I installed it after a backup of my 8.4.1 install. Did an Option Restore in OS X and updated my 6 to iOS 9 and restored from my backup. The only hiccup I ran into was it initially had trouble signing into my iCloud account. I managed to get through it and it works fine. So far no issues, and no you do not need a developer account to run this. Do a google search to find it. Look for the link to Reddit for it.

    Good news it seems, Apple's code for third party keyboards seems to be more stable. SwiftKey pops up instantly and I haven't seen it not show text yet. It does still revert to stock for multiple text fields though.

    can you please explain? since restoring via option key on iTunes means my iDevices will get erased.
    You can Shift+Restore or Shift+Update. That is where the difference is.

    Can't really explain but menu to close all apps running stutters. My spotlight part was black and white for a while, weather app froze and some apps have fc'ed. Have you had any issues! I'm not a Dev and got the GM from a different website.

    Bug...

    Public Beta users who update to the GM... After deleting the Public Beta Profile from my devices and installing the GM... I'm now getting a notification that Public Beta 3 is now available to install...
    Same here, also got a 1 badge on my settings icon and at update. Also went into storage and deleted the iOS 9 public beta download...1 is still there even thought when I go into updates it says its all up to date. Hopefully someone finds a fix because right now I cant find it. Do you have a 1 badge too?

    Now it's taunting me. I got the same notification on both my iPad and iPhone, yet no update was available when I went there. Public beta...

    iCloud backup still fails. It hasn't backed up since the last release of the beta. Early August.
