Just recently, on August 20th, Apple has released its beta 9 version for the iOS version 12. Available for developers, this update happened after just 5 days have passed since its dev beta 8 happened. Even the beta 8 update meant for testers didn’t wait too long to happen, following closely the release of the beta 7, which had some pretty big problems.
That 7th update for developers was soon followed by the public beta 7. This shows how Apple sticks to its rule of releasing both the developer and the public beta upgrades on the same day.
The beta 9
The 9th iOS 12 update for developers isn’t as big of a change as some might think. In fact, it is a seemingly minor update. It looks to solve the two issues which affect the Localization feature. Of course, it isn’t error-free, although it only introduces two minor issues.
If your iPhone’s Downtime was configured before the release of the beta 9, then it might not work. Also, if you’re curious about traffic data in Maps, then you might not find it displayed.
How to update to beta 9?
First and foremost, in order to download and install the update to iOS 12 beta 9, you need to be a certified developer who has registered with a valid configuration profile. Then, if you have the Automatic Updates feature turned on, your software will do the job overnight. However, if you are too excited to wait, then open the Settings app, tap ‘General’, then ‘Software Update’.
Then, all you have to do is tap on ‘Download and Install’ and you will see instruction popping up. Follow these instructions and you will find your way with installing the iOS 12 dev beta 9.
