iOS 9 is scheduled for public release on Sept. 16, with 9.1 expected to release sometime later this year. The update is available as an OTA (over the air) update for users who have the first beta installed. The software is also availalbe in the Member Center on Apple's Developer site. If you don't have an Apple developers account there is another way to get the beta on your iOS device.

Note: Beta releases from Apple are primarily intended for developers to test their existing apps for compatibility with each new OS and to get a running start on integrating new OS features into their apps. As such, the beta releases of iOS 9 and watchOS 2 are not quite ready for consumer use and have the following unfortunate side-effects including app crashes, device instability and reduced battery life.

Most importantly, a device updated to a beta version of an OS cannot be restored to the previous OS version. There is no going back once you upgrade so make sure you give all of the above due consideration before continuing. So install at your own risk!
