    So far I haven't noticed any of the issues I had with b1. My connection issues seem to be gone. I haven't had the camera app lock up yet either, but I haven't played with it much yet on b2.

    battery life on b2 is much worst than b1 on my iPhone 5. The longest I got was 2 days without charge on b1 but consistently I got 1 full day easily ending the first night at around 70ish% now with the same use I'm ending the night at 40ish%

    Yes, you could in 5.0 but Apple removed it in 6.0.
    I could delete individual songs on 5.1 and still can now for 6.0.1...I don't use iTunes Match.

    It's something Apple changed for ITunes Match users only.

    Camera roll or photo stream? Or both?
    This isn't a beta issue. I have this issue with 6.0.1 with camera roll & photo stream.

    Battery life is about the same for me (same as 6.01, 6.1b1).

    I submitted a bug report about the 🔋 life. I've got a 🔋 logger now and I'll submit the info. I charged to full at noon today and now 6 hours later I'm down to 67% so it's definitely draining since on beta 1 I'd get home and around 9PM I'd be in the high 60-70% range and that is leaving the charger at 6AM!

    Beta 2 does make the screen even more gorgeous or maybe it's mind over matter? Today is the first time since owning it that I REALLY marveled at the screen. I can't believe I just didn't notice it before. The colors look really rich now very vibrant.

    I knew I wasn't going nuts here are two screenshots, one on beta 1 and the other beta 2. They are both after the same usage as much as anyone can guarantee that

    *I don't know what the deal with the image upload is but the thumbnails are below. You can see that on beta 1 after a day it was at 40% while on beta 2 it was at 26% that is almost a 20% difference and believe me it is with the same use maybe even less.

    lol yeah it sucks but at work I can't sync without plugging in but in both cases it was plugged in for the duration of a sync. So roughly under 3 or 4 minutes I just backed up and I'm heading back to beta 1 possibly considering 6.0.1 until beta 3 comes out.

    Its almost getting to the point I never sync with iCloud and match .. I didn't go beta this time around
    I had awesome battery on 6.0 and 6.01 seems ok but maybe a tad worse so I'm staying clear until its 6.1 is public

    Phone was plugged in and there is almost an hour difference in usage, so you can't compare battery based on that.

    6.0, 6.01, 6.1b1 and 6.1b2 have all given me roughly the same battery life. Maybe a slight improvement with 6.1, but both b1 and b2 are the same for me.

    Did anyone notice that when the device is locked Wifi turns off? On my iPhone I noticed it on beta 2 and even waking up the iPhone doesn't restore Wifi I have to unlock. I've submitted a bug report but I think they are experimenting with battery saving implimentations.

    I know this is a beta thread, but isn't this normal? At least it is in my experience and I don't have iOS 6 Beta 2 or any other beta installed.
    On my iPhone I noticed it on beta 2 and even waking up the iPhone doesn't restore Wifi I have to unlock.
    Again, I know this is a beta thread & my response is solely in regard to the Wi-Fi issue mentioned, but with my 4S using iOS 6.0.1, Wi-Fi reconnects after waking. I do not have to unlock it in order for it to do so.

    It probably is a battery-saving feature....

    The problem once I start using a beta is I never remember if the stock iOS does the same thing. However I know even if the Wifi wakes up once you wake the device mine doesn't. It wont come back on until I unlock the device. I figure it's a battery saving feature but I'm missing iMessages and emails because my iPhone doesn't have a connection to the internet. Once my Mac got an iMessage and that was when I figured it all out because 15 minutes later my phone still didn't get the message. I unlocked and after a few seconds the Wifi popped up and boom there was my message along with 8 emails.

    is there a time 💣 on beta 2? I just got my iPhone replaced and in order to restore it to how it was I need iOS 6.1. I don't want to use beta 3 if I don't have to beta 2 was so much better on my 🔋.
