    In my case, it showed up on the last page of apps. Try searching for it.

    Nope. Nothing, I've tried hard reset & soft reset. I think I might need to reinstall

    Curious... are you in the US? I wonder if it might be a geolocation issue.

    It may be a "US only" thing in this beta.

    You won't

    Correction I was too quick in answering. Yes you will lose everything on your phone. Be sure to make a backup first.

    I am on iOS 8.4 and each time I try to get back to iOS 9 via iTunes, it gives me an error Attachment 84794

    what do I do?!?
    What steps are you taking to restore to the beta? It seems like your doing it wrong. Google instruction for install of a beta for the type of machine your on for windows or Mac.

    Not as long as you have a back-up...

    My initial impressions of beta 3:
    1. OTA installation went well
    2. Thus far, it's stable with a speedy performance.
    3. Battery Life appears great.
    4. News app is quite functional, but I wish I could change the font.
    5. Music app is fully functional.
    6. All my apps work.
    7. Previous glitches appear to be gone.
    8. iMessage issue (initial text sent as SMS) appears to be fixed.
    9. The installation didn't require me to un-pair and then pair my Watch.

    So far so good.

    Yes sir. I've been running beta 2 as my daily driver and unless beta 3 starts freakin' out on my iPhone (primary device), it, too, will be my daily driver.

    I can already tell that I won't be using the News app. It's way too one-sided for my tastes....

    I'm still getting that error

    I looked that error number up and it means it can't connect to the update server

    Lots of tech stuff. I like it. Easy to avoid political (that's what I like to avoid anyway).

    I hear ya. There are too many CNN articles in the 'For You' section. I'd like my 'Favorites' to be displayed in the same manner as the articles in the 'For You' section.

    This is what I was afraid of when they announced this last month.

    So I downloaded the ISPW for B3 because I didn't see the OTA. The problem is that when I make a backup and then do a restore from backup there is always an error that occurs and it wont complete the restore. This has been happening since Beta 2 for me. Has anyone had this happen to them or have any suggestions as to what I can do to do a restore?

    I am gonna try one more thing that I haven't tried yet. Going through the setup process and selecting restore from iTunes on the phone side of things and see what happens with that.



    Conditions:

    Fresh Install from ISPW
    Encrypted backup from iPhone 6 Plus
    Mac OS X 10.10.4

    I don't mind that they chose several news sources for us to get us started with the News app, but once we pick and choose favorites, our favorites should replace anything that was pre-chosen, in my opinion.
