    My experience so far;
    • Battery drain is dreadful. First time with my iPhone 6+ that the battery has died overnight! I have seen the battery drop from 100% to 90% whilst doing nothing on my drive to work.
    • There is a serious bug in the CarPlay functionality that causes the phone to crash, either completely or just Springboard, every 15 minutes or so, taking the Pioneer headunit with it
    • There is another CarPlay bug that causes the CarPlay menu screen to pop up every 20 minutes or so, taking preference over anything else that was on the display (in my case, Pioneer's OEM satnav package)
    • The "Featured" tab of the App Store stops working intermitently (I've noticed this in OS X 10.11 too)
    • The Apple Store app is all but broken (which is good because it's stopping my buying an Apple Watch!!!)
    • UI performance issues (to be expected)
    • Love the new app switcher!
    • Siri seems more accommodating (I'm not sure if I'm asking different questions but he/she seems to be able to answer more questions natively rather than pulling up a web search)
    • I'm finding Touch ID more responsive (i.e. unlocking the phone from screen off is a one-touch process now rather than me having to try several times). Might be a placebo but it just seems better.
    • A rotation bug I had in 8.3 is fixed (sometimes the iPhone 6 Plus would not re-orientate from landscape to portrait without me turning the screen off and back on)
    • Really like the "Back to X..." options when you are taking from one app to another, that's a really nice touch

    Decided to install the beta on my 5th gen iPod touch, so far it's been stable.

    I'm running it on my daily driver as well. Battery drain is high but almost always near power so I'll wait it out. Had a few random springboard crashes when using the app switcher but can't consistently reproduce it.

    After having to charge my 6plus twice in one day which I've never done since release , I decided to revert to iOS 8.3. It was nice when it lasted but I just couldn't come to grips with so many bugs I had to face.
    Awaiting on IOS 9 beta 2

    You could hide it in 8.3 too
    So I went back to 8.4 B4 and does not have the hide icon like ios9

    Battery drain fix (it works for me at least)

    Since beta update i feel that my 6+ start to be bit warmer/hot very soon and that location arrow is almost all the time present at status bar. Also under battery usage i saw only a bit higher "Home & Lock screen" consumption.
    I checked location service, but haven't seen any purple/running one. I tried also play a bit with widgets and i saw, that there is also one called traffic, which is not visible. I shut him down, but it haven't helped.

    Than i tried to go again to Privacy -> Location Services -> scrolled down to System Services where was under "Product Improvement" a Routing & Traffic switch with purple arrow. I turned this function off and it helped immediately.
    Now, after 12 hours i can say, that i finally observe no strange battery drain.

    Those settings are already off for me. And my battery is draining fast. I do also have a 2.0 watch.

    Ok I think I found the culprit to the battery drain. I turned off mobile data and only have it on wifi and battery life seems to be back to normal. My phone was on 98% when I turned it off an hour later it's still on 98% on stand by. Still though not very ideal except if you're in a wifi area.

    Holy cow. Take a look at cellular data for current period! Guess I will find out if Sprint really means unlimited data!

    It eventually did. Its weird, it will go long spans of time with no battery drain and then boom, out of nowhere...

    A couple of questions:

    1. Don't you have to manually reset that number or it just keeps going?
    2. Am I seeing things or is the battery icon now yellow?

    The yellow is because it is in Low Power Mode.

    On the cellular data, it says current period. You could be right that it only manually resets. I reset it tonight (for the first time). Going to monitor in the next 24 hours.

    Doesn't work for me. I switched off Location Services completely.

    I went to sleep at 12 am (61%) and woke up at 9 am with 47% left.

    Thanks for asking this question. Made me think about it more clearly (after some sleep).

    I can confirm that the 'current period' label is misleading. It should say, since last reset.

    I did a more accurate check of cellular data usage by logging into my account. According to sprint, my current (billing) period is 4 days old. And the usage is exactly what it should be based on my actual activity on cellular data in the four days. No extra, unexpected overage.

    This is a good reminder though to check your usage on your account after installing beta releases as there have been issues with phone betas in the past for some users under some circumstances.

    Not for me this time.
