    I was wondering what phones you guys are running the beta on? I'm trying it out on my old 3GS first. Is it stable enough to use as a daily driver?
    I'm running it on my 3gs and it runs pretty good.

    I'm on vzw and it's ok. Other then issues i have already complained about, I noticed to day that the phone gets sluggish after about 12 hours. A reboot seems to work

    I was wrong ... Wasn't syncing with iTunes but iCloud.
    Oooooh, I see! So it really isn't working for anyone out there yet!?
    Okay, I guess we'll just have to wait for another release then

    Do you guys know how to enable the lockscreen camera shortcut? Or was that not included in this beta?

    Double-click the Home button when you are in the lockscreen

    Oh that's awesome. Thank you. Has anyone else noticed a huge decline in bars? My signal seems to be fine but my phone only displays 1-3 bars, usually just one.

    Mail does show up on my lock screen, I agree with Hank this OS is solid enough to be my daily driver. I did test personal hot spot today and it works just fine as expected.

    As someone mentioned earlier in the thread, very few of the apps that attach pics from your camera roll will do that now - file structure change, I guess.

    ESPN Scorecenter issue

    whenever i get updates and i go into the notification, via statusbar or lockscreen, it never takes me into the correct section

    i really hope this is something that is going to be corrected with future betas

    Or a future sportscenter update. Remember, the current devs have to revamp the way their products work with the new notification center. This is usually the first time they have seen it too....


    Too be honest, all these reports of a decently stable beta 1 is tempting me. But I am not too confident in allowing this to be on my only iOS device. Someone convince me!!!!

    No. Once it's added, that's it...unless the dev's account expired.

    Mine has been the exact opposite haha... Usually I have 3-4 bars, and now I almost always have 5... not that i'm complaining

    The tap a message's icon on your lockscreen and slide to open/take you to the message...
    Week view in calendar...
    Reminders...
    Photo rearrangement on phone...
    Purchasable text tones (progress at least)...
    Using phone while it syncs...
    Multiple apps downloading at once...
    Lockscreen notifications help with lack of calendar snooze...
    Safari Reader...
    No life-altering bugs that I've found. Only things that annoy me at all is that Tiny Wings lags quite a bit every once in a while and the battery life isn't AS good (though I can still make it through a day... and while it seems to churn through during usage, standby it barely moves at ALL)

    Worst case scenario - you have to downgrade, which is possible and really easy... I've done it twice now by doing the same thing as upgrading to 5 but using my 4.x ipsw

    You've downgraded from 5 to 4 twice? So answer me this. I am very worried about my saved games, some which took a lot of work. I'd hate to risk los If I update to 5
    Upgrading to 5 you won't lose anything... but any progress you make in 5 will be lost when/if you go back to 4... but if you ever go back to 5, as long as you backup every time that is, you'll have it all back. So pretty much, any progress you have now, you have for good

    You've downgraded from 5 to 4 twice already? That's not very comforting. Here's a question. I am paranoid about my saved games, some of which took a lot of work, and if I update to 5, will it restore from backup with no data loss? If I find 5 crappy and downgrade back to 4, what are the odds of restoring the data again? Based on past history, when you have an older version of iOS (like when I had my phone replaced and it came with 4.2), my 4.3.3 backup wouldn't restore until I upgraded to 4.3.3.

    That being said, I assume 5 updates the backup and if I revert to 4.3.3, the backup won't work anymore?

    Stupid iPhone. Wrong input and it got our messages crossed. But you answered my question. Thanks. I'm just paranoid about the saved data.

    Well, the first time I downgraded I only did it to see if I could... I was so nervous about a bad beta that I just had to know if I could go back to 4.x to save me from having to use a Blackberry... the second time was because the beta doesn't have the best battery life (not horrible though!) but I missed the notification center so much I'm back haha.

    All 3 times I upgraded to 5, I had no data lost whatsoever. Going back to 4, I was where I left off in 4 (it can't read the 5 backup). At least with the iTunes I'm using (beta 10.5, which you have to use to register the iphone beta) it shows you your past like, 15 backups, so I just selected the latest one I knew was for the right software and I was back where I left off. I've lost nothing Nothing you do in 5 will sync back to 4, though, so that's something to consider.

    Yeah that's very big to consider and I appreciate your quick response. I'll leave the other thread alone.

    A part of me REALLY wants to update. A small part doesn't. Maybe I'll update once I return from my NYC trip (4th of July). I'd hate to update now and have messed up camera functions. Or worse, beta 2 is released and I will not be around a computer to update once the newer beta hits and my iPhone is bricked because I didn't update in time.

    Yeah, that would super suck! I actually think the camera is performing better for me on 5... at least, the grid is really nice and it opens faster XD Also if you plan on using it as a camera a lot you should probably wait because the battery is worse... not as bad as android but it's definitely worse.
