    DO NOT download beta 2. Just worked with it for about an hour battery life is draining as fast or faster than beta 1. Disappointing.

    No significant improvement in battery life at my end; stay away till the 3rd beta if it is on your primary device.

    Really? Huge improvement for me. Been at 100% for over 30 minutes of usage and close to an hour standby

    Do you guys usually restore when a new beta comes out? I usually restore from new whenever a new update comes out just so that anything that was left by the previous beta would be erased. Is that necessary to do ?

    For the last 10 minutes of using Beta 2, it seems much more fluid and responsive than Beta 1. Using 3rd Gen iPad Wi-Fi only.

    My device is not registered as developer but can use this beta though I sign up for public beta on iOS 8.4 but try on your own risk.

    That's strange. I am hearing reports of much better battery life in beta 2. I am running on a wifi only device, and had no real issues with beta 1. For me, battery life in beta 2 is as good or better than beta 1. Obviously, it's a beta, and YMMV.

    It is recommended that you refrain from saying "DO NOT download beta 2". Instead, simply tell us that 'you've' experienced faster battery drain on 'your' device. Having said that, try restoring it again and see if things improve for you.

    I have the same issue with both Iphone6 (verizon) and iPad Air regarding the 'An error occurred downloading i OS 9 beta 2"

    Will try again in a few hours!


    Anyone who has downloaded via dev site have any big issues that were fixed with this update to report?

    Main thing... how is battery life??

    The servers are most likely getting slammed with downloads.

    The battery life? It's an early beta. It it's decent at all, it's a win. Seeing minor improvement, and hearing that in general terms, it's better than beta 1.

    I am hoping for a significant improvement in this beta. I will probably be waiting one more beta to go back to it, but I would love for my watch to be useable again. I am probably just going to have my watch sent in so I do not have to worry about betas until it is more stable b

    Anyone experiencing Calendar issues? Can't get an Exchange account calendar to sync. Mail, contacts and notes are fine. Calendar is not right.

    Decided to bite the bullet and instal on my iPhone 5S. So far so good. Don't see an insane battery drain, but I won't know for sure until tomorrow. Just like my iPad, this release is more fluid and works better than Beta 1 did for me on iPhone.
