For the first time ever, Apple is giving the general public free access to beta versions of its latest iOS software. The first public beta of iOS 9 was released earlier this month, and it gives Apple fans a chance to see what’s coming to the next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus later this year.
But if you want the latest and greatest Apple has to offer, the public beta isn’t going to cut it — you still need a paid developer account to access the latest iOS 9 betas as Apple releases them. Or do you?
Apple on Tuesday released a brand new iOS 9 beta build for developers. iOS 9 beta 4 includes more stability improvements, new bug fixes and some great interface tweaks, but public beta users won’t be able to enjoy them until Apple releases a new public beta, whenever that might be.
As always, however, YouTube user “iCrackUriDevice” has put together a video showing users how to install the latest iOS 9 beta without a developer account.
But first, the obligatory warning: unless you’re a developer, you should not install developer betas on your iPhone or iPad. In fact, even if you are a developer, you probably shouldn’t install beta software on your personal devices. Battery life will suffer, performance will suffer, and apps will crash.
If that didn’t scare you off, the full video with instructions follows below.
