Yes you read that right, this early iOS 9 has already been spotted running in the wild. We are seeing signs that Apple has already begun testing the new iOS even as early as last year.

Usually, Apple releases a new iOS version at around September every year, while developers get to have access to the latest iOS version months before to prepare their Apps for compatibility and other improvements regarding the new iOS.


But according to reports, Apple has already begun testing iOS 9 internally. iOS 9 has started to appear in the analytics data from a number of websites from recent months, and all coming from Cupertino. CultofMac has reported seeing visits from devices using iOS 9 as early as November last year.


Apple would usually show a preview of a new iOS version during Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), release multiple Beta versions for developers for testing purposes and then release it to the public by around September.

This is not highly unusual though, it would not be unusual for Apple to begin testing new software way (even a whole year) in advance, ahead of any public announcement.
