Apple on Monday unveiled iOS 9, a new major operating system update for iPhone and iPad that brings over various neat performance and stability improvements but also a bunch of interesting new features. The first iOS 9 beta is available to download and install, if you’re a developer or have access to a developer account. However, it turns out that you can install iOS 9 on your iPhone right now even without having it registered with a dev account.

That’s, of course, if you can’t wait for Apple to roll out its first public iOS 9 public beta, which is rolling out in July, at which point it won’t matter whether your iPhone’s UDID is registered with a developer ID or not.

Luckily, for those iPhone 6 owners who want to experience iOS 9 regardless of the expected performance issues that might appear given that it’s a first beta release, YouTube channel iCrackUriDevice has you covered. The following video will show you what you need to do to install iOS 9 on your iPhone 6, or any other iOS device that’s capable of running iOS 9, right away.

You should know that, once you update to iOS 9 on your iPhone 6 this way, you won’t be able to back up your data and restore it back to iOS 8.3 or later down the road. Furthermore, connecting to iTunes once your device has been updated will trigger activation issues. We’ll also remind you that BGR advises against running unfinished or unofficial software on your devices, and you’ll be the only person responsible for any consequences resulting from such actions.

To install iOS 9 beta 1, you’ll need to follow the instructions in the video below, after you’ve managed to find the appropriate iOS 9 build for your device.
