    I've been running the betas since iOS 7 or 8, and this is the first time a beta has actually effected my usage.
    10.3 Beta 2 hasn't effected my usage, but I'm ready for the next beta release for sure.

    Battery drain on this release is the first problem I encounter with a beta since I'm on the first beta of iOS 10.
    Usually I find the updates flawless.
    I'm back on 10.2.1 until beta 3.

    I totally agree!!! Been running a dev beta since iOS 7 with no issues until now. I'm so ready for an update!

    Me too. I think Apple is holding off on the "Dark Theme" for iOS 11 to make it an epic update, but I wish they would release it NOW.

    Some people had some theories about the WWDC 2017 photo today and a few of them say that Dark Mode is indeed in the hidden clues In that photoZ

    Dark mode would be better for an OLED display (for power reasons - a black pixel uses no power on OLED, but uses the same backlight power than any other color on an LED display), and, since rumors say an OLED display may be coming this fall, that makes a lot of sense that it comes with this fall's iOS.

    they should just skip the dark mode completely, just to punk @Spencerdl

    They should definitely stick with the translucent dock too.

    I love the translucent dock! If it goes away, I'm switching to Blackberry.

    If it uses the same power as any other color then why not just release it. I'm still using the phone with different colors so it shouldn't matter if I use black or white or color...power (battery usage) will still be the same. I'm not concerned about the OLED display and we know that it uses more power (battery usage), so it does make sense for the "Dark Theme" on that screen, but let's cross that bridge when we get to it.

    Say what you want. We both know that @robertk328 and I are like grandkids to you.

    To stay on topic, beta seems really smooth. Finally fixed CallKit!

    Blacks look great on OLED; not as great on LED, because of the backlight bleed.

    I'm sure it's because Apple's interface designers prefer a white background and don't really want a dark mode, but they'll offer it when it makes sense to have it. Apple offers functionality when they want to, not when people like us think they should. We all know that...

    Yeah, this is true and I have some choice words for those designers as well...LOL

    Yeah, haven't had any hiccups with Beta 3 so far, still early in the game but I think it's mature enough now to be quite stable, at least I hope so anyway.

    Any novelties to know about, except for the Settings > About > Applications section now telling you which apps aren't updated by the dev for a while?

    Funny thing about dark and AMOLED is how many AMOLED devices are all white!
    It's nuts!
    Enough with the white out, people are going blind. We NEED contrast.
