Apple is giving a sneak peak of iOS 9 to anyone that wants it.
On Thursday, the company released a public beta of its upcoming iPhone and iPad software. It’s an uncommon move for the company, which usually only makes iOS betas available to developers.
Users can sign up to access the iOS 9 beta by visiting Apple’s website. The early version of the software comes with a Feedback Assistant app, which will allow users to send Apple information about how the new OS is performing.
iOS 9, expected to be released in September, will feature a revamped News app, transit directions in Apple Maps and a more robust version of the Siri digital assistant, among other improvements. However, downloaders beware: since this is a beta version of the software, it will likely be full of bugs. Apple suggests users only download it onto a secondary phone and back up their devices before getting the new version.
