iOS 9 Beta was launched in June 2015
With a focus on proactivity and on intelligence, the biggest strength of iOS is that it is able to learn the habits of a user and use this information to provide a better and smoother experience. While iOS 8 was lauded to be one of the most advanced operating systems when it was launched, iOS 9 has only taken it further and is well positioned to offer the best of older versions and many new features as well.
Steps to upgrade to iOS 9
In order to upgrade your iPad or iPhone to iOS 9, you need to register your UDID. UDID registration requires your device’s unique device identifier code to be registered with the Apple Developer Center, allowing you to upgrade to the latest version of iOS. Once registered, users get immediate access to all of the features of iOS 9.
While some users jailbreak their devices in order to avoid UDID registration, it must be remembered that Apple may at any point of time patch this loophole, making it an unsuitable choice to jailbreak. It is a much better option to sign up on third party websites to get your UDID registered. Developers should certainly do so, as they can then test their apps on up to 100 devices, once registered. Normal users can also make use of registration to avail all the benefits and unlock the features of iOS 9.
While there are many websites which offer registration of UDID, users will need to find the character long code on their devices and send it across for registration. This can be done in several ways, including:
One of the simplest methods to get your UDID registered, all that needs to be done is to open up UDID registration page using the Safari browser. The code automatically gets sent to the third party website, which then takes care of registration. While this is certainly one of the easiest methods for registration, not all third party websites offer this feature.
After connecting your device to your Mac, you can use Xcode to find your UDID. By launching the organizer menu and selecting your device, your 40 character UDID will be displayed. You can then copy and send this code to third party websites for registration.
iTunes can also be used to find your device’s UDID. Once you connect your device to your computer and open up iTunes, you can select your device and click on the serial number to display the UDID. This UDID can then be copied and registered on third party websites.
Finding the UDID of your device
By following any of these steps, an older version of iOS can be upgraded to iOS 9 in very little time. While jailbreak may be tempting, it is highly recommended that you make use of a third party website for UDID registration.
