Install iOS 9 OTA Update:
The simpliest way to install OTA update of the final iOS 9 version is to get it via the built-in over-the-air update mechanism in iOS smartphone or tablet. It is not recommended for major iOS releases such as version 9.0 as they tend to cause performance related issues. If, anyway that thing doesn’t bother you, can give this method a go.
Before you proceed: Also make sure your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has at least 4GB of free space and is charged well over 50%. Once you have all of that sorted, simply head to Settings > General > Software Update and update from there. Those who are on ajilboken iOS 8.4, and don’t want to update, stay away from this. Team is although working on untethered iOS 9 jailbreak.
