    Did you figure out what it was that didn't seem right after downgrading back to iOS 8.3?
    May be the apps not updated to support iOS 9 just yet, is causing some grief on people, including me, but I am putting up with it. Facebook is another one, group joining request would show up on notification, and I click on it, and gives me an error saying page is not available, however when you go into the group itself, it would be visible and things can be actioned accordingly. Ah what ever, I'm sticking to it, for now. I hope they'll fix it in two weeks time when they release the next one.

    It's a given that some apps will not work or will work erratically on a beta OS. Anyone who opts to install a beta should expect that to occur. Still, I'm one of the lucky ones whose iPhone is handling beta 2 just fine. There are hiccups here and there, but they do not diminish my user experience, thankfully. Anyway, like you, I'm sticking with it unless it somehow starts mucking thing up...

    Couple of new small issues:
    Also, does anyone find typing with the new font harder? I don't mind reading the font, but I find myself making noticeably more errors typing. Maybe it is because the character preview is turned off? I will turn it on and see if my typing improves.
    I also find it a bit weird with the common case letters, it seems like I type slower. I think having the smaller letters makes the keyboard seem smaller than it really is. I guess it's just something that I would have to get used to

    From Device1 (iphone6+/9.0 beta2) When you go to Settings> Messages> Text Message Forwarding, then select/toggle the device (Device2 iphone5s on 8.4) you want to forward the text messages to, Device1 is supposed to send a code to Device2 to enter back on Device1 as confirmation, but that code never appears on Device2.

    I don't have 'text message forwarding' when I go to Settings - Messages. When I forward messages, it's done automatically from within the Messages app when I long press on a message and then choose 'More' and then the forwarding arrow.

    Correct. That works for me, too.

    If you have more than one Apple device on the same "iMessaging" AppleID account, the "text message forwarding" option pops up. It automatically forwards all text messages (SMS) from one device to another. I have 2 phones (personal/work) so this was useful when not carrying both with me.

    Thanks for checking, though.

    Okay. I understand, and thank you for clarifying...

    Battery life much improved over beta 1. Funny thing though my phone discharged from 100% to 96% then got stuck there and didn't show any discharge happening. I got 30 hours standby and 9 hours usage.

    Has anyone used Apple Maps on B2? I would like to know if they take into consideration traffic conditions and rerouting. I could have sworn it did, but I am in a London, ON which is pretty small and not much rerouting can take place... lol

    Seems to work. I was using it today (In the US) and a yellow banner popped up on top explaining that there was road work ahead. Not sure if that is what you are referring to though.

    Hey, that was one aspect, was also wondering if it would reroute if there was traffic.

    Considering after 5 hours of STANDBY on B1 I'd have to charge it, yep.

    Very pleased.

    Much much improved. Last cycle from Tuesday night through today was 30 hours standby and 9 hours usage. My phone died today at 4pm and I unplugged it at around 8am Wednesday.

    Battery life much better, noticed the phone goes a little funny with wifi though when downloading from App Store. When texting due to the new sliding cursor feature sometimes when your typing quickly it deletes stuff as it highlights it too easily. But great in general. The app switcher hand off feature is cool too
