    Beyond the usual caveats with beta software... it may be unstable... won't do physical harm.

    Harm no. Could it corrupt your data or possibly render some apps useless temporarily yes. But those issue are typically far and in between.

    How could it be true when the beta hasn't even been released yet?

    Oh, I see what you mean. Well, it could be an issue if you're not a developer yourself--there have been reports of Apple shutting down access to developers who are caught selling access to the beta builds, so if you were doing that and your access was revoked you'd be stuck when the beta expired. But at that point (if indeed those reports are even true) you could just restore anyway and go back to stock.

    I'll wait. I've never done the betas and would rather keep my jailbreak.

    Since its a developer build, a very early preview it's not necessarily going to be daily driver material

    I wonder if it sets up a direct link to Prism ? ;-)

    The usual things will be there OP, possible battery drain, bugs, crashing. So if you're gonna run it make sure your stuff is all backed up so you have an option if your device is really messed up. I'm guessing the reports you've seen about it "bricking" your phone which is not really what it will do. However if you're running a beta which usually has a time bomb and you're not a dev. Then when the time expires if you haven't either wiped your device and loaded a stock iOS then the phone will be locked out. You can simply go to DFU mode ofcourse so it's not really bricked.
