Apple today released public betas of iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, giving non-developers their first chance to preview a major release of its mobile operating system and replicating the practice of last year for its Mac OS.
Apple iOS - News, Features, and Slideshows
Apple will make iOS 8.4, the upgrade necessary to try out the Cupertino, Calif. company's new streaming music service, available early Tuesday for downloading to iPhones and iPads.
Apple's iOS 9 will ask users if they want to delete apps to make room for the upgrade if their devices are short of space, then automatically select those marked for temporary elimination, according to online reports.
Apple on Monday gave a strong hint that it has a larger iPad in the works, analysts said today.
Apple yesterday promised that the iOS 9 upgrade would not repeat the debacle of last year, when owners of iPhones and iPads with small storage allotments were unable to easily install the new operating system.
This is a time of temptation for Apple enthusiasts, many of whom are eager to get their hands -- and devices -- on the company's newest software. Between June, when company execs tout the upcoming versions of Apple's desktop and mobile operating systems, and the fall, when the polished, finished versions arrive, Apple users get a chance to serve as beta testers.
