    That's up to you! It's pretty solid. Only a few minor bugs left. I like it. Go for it!
    Here's instructions if you need them. I did. LOL

    Since iOS 10 is installed on your iPhone/iPad, it won't mess up your Mac.

    Oh and install the Public beta if you want, it's pretty smooth BUT not perfect. Expect some bugs!

    I would say that if your one and only iOS device isn't mission critical to your day to day life, then get it. I use my iPhone 6+ everyday, including 5 days a week for work. I am mainly using the maps app, and music while at work. However, if my phone was to crash, and I wasn't able to reboot it, until I did a hard reset until I got home, it would be ok. Because my phone is not essential to my job. Would I have gotten the beta, if the crashing of my iPhone could cost me money? then no I wouldn't have d/l the beta

    I would say yes, go for it. If you can wait until Fall, then wait. If not, the latest beta is very smooth and stable

    at this point I wouldn't worry about any of that. Beta 1, sure. But not now

    I have one Mac on El Capitan and one on macOS Sierra beta and none of the devices have issues.

    These betas are pretty darn rock solid. At this point any beta could be a potential GM. Go for it!

    No problems here. It's late enough in the beta cycle that any kinks should be worked out. A few had issues at the beginning but it's been good for a while now.

    I have yet to have any DoS errors. Occasionally something just won't behave the way I expect, but it's still not bad.

    The iOS10 public beta is pretty smooth, not that many bugs left and my phone hasn't crashed to the point where i need to reset it. It has lagged here and there but nothing too crazy, i believe we are up to public beta 5 so far so good. runs smooth on my iPhone 6S plus and i use it every day.

    Nearly all my 300+ apps work. One or two will need an update next month.

    Personally I am waiting. I'm still pretty new to Apple and do not know much about Beta so I do not feel comfortable installing it. It's great reading that there are so few issues with it though.

    At this point, it's not much different from what you will see next month.

    I honestly have had less problems (none basically) than with other official iOS releases. Very pleased.

    I'll be honest, in that while the betas of iOS 10 may have some bugs or issues, it's running *so* much better on my Air than iOS 9 did. I had terrible battery life on iOS 9, nor would apps in the app store automatically update, and other issues. That's all gone with the iOS 10 beta. I'm not sorry I decided to try the beta *at all*. It's made my Air feel like a new device.

    The beginning had a few quirks but it's been great lately.
