I have a new iPhone 6S and need to upgrade it to the public beta for 9.1 in order to restore my back up from my old iPhone

I have installed the profile on the device as per their instructions then restarted but every time I go to settings > general > software update I get this error:

An error occurred while checking for a software update, cancel or try again

Is their another way to install the beta?

    Have you tried deleting the profile, restarting, then reinstalling the profile? Sep 27, 2015 at 21:46

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is about an old beta with no useful answers and is now attacking answers which don't really help

Follow this tutorial: http://www.imore.com/how-download-ios-93-public-beta

Your question being old, I'm guessing you might be interested in iOS 10 now, which you can obtain through a) a paid Developer account, b) invite to Apple's Public Betas, which should be coming soon, or c) an Apple Seed invitation, which you can't ask for.


You can install it via iTunes.

Link for firmware files.

Choose your file with caution...
