    On the device, using Safari, go to beta.apple.com, login with your AppleID and follow the prompts. You will first have to download the beta profile, and then the beta software will show as an iOS update.

    Using SwiftKey for now. Battery life is way better on beta 3! I'm much happier and not as worried about it dying in the middle of my day.

    Finally figured out what was happening to me, they are testing this theory to be sure. If all goes well, I'll be home tomorrow!

    Hello lovely people. So I've been considering installing iOS 9 public beta on my iPhone 6, which also happens to be my primary device. Of course I will do the mandatory iTunes backup and everything. But I wanted to know from your experience whether I'm likely to face any major problem with iOS 9. Like serious bugs and all that might render my phone useless.

    Basically, is it safe? What does your experience say? Thanks for sharing your insights!

    I have and so far no major issues. You'll get some annoyances like groupme app sometimes crashes repeatedly but closing and reopening solves the issue

    One query guys. I have downloaded and installed the beta profile from Apple's website. My software update is now showing iOS 9 public beta 3 is available. Now my question is, what if I don't install the beta. Will I still receive normal iOS updates? Or do I need to do a system restore for that? Thanks.

    For those complaining or even concerned that the latest betas (DB5 and PB3) still lag from time to time or on intensive ops, here's something to consider. We need to realize that these beta releases still contain logic for running traces and diagnostics, etc. These tools do impact the overall performance of the release, and they will be removed in the GM release. Obviously, no one outside fo Apple knows specifically what kind of code traces (or where in the OS that they've activated them), but, the fact that these are beta releases pretty much guarantees that there is still active diagnostic code in the software.

    The traces and diagnostics could be throughout the code and be used to identify areas where the code could be tightened up, and/or they could be focused on what Apple has identified as problem areas where they are trying to identify info and exterminate perceived bugs.

    One more thing we can be sure of - the extra diagnostic code is negatively affecting battery life. Not sure how much of an impact it has, but it's definitely greater than zero.

    My point with this post is that the GM version will definitely perform better once all of the diagnostic code is removed.

    I believe this is addressed in the beta FAQ and it states that "normal" iOS 9 update will be pushed to beta users just as you would expect. I have the beta profile installed and the red update badge staring at me but haven't taken the leap yet...

    For me the latest beta has worked like a charm. Had my doubts as well. Go for it. And a big bonus is that you get the chance to help Apple make the OS better.

    So far the beta has been working like a charm. I am noticing vastly improved battery life - 12 hrs standby and 2 hrs usage and I'm still at 78%. Wow! Haven't had any crashes or anything like that yet. Good stuff!

    Same for me, installed last night. Initially the update failed after it downloaded but then it installed fine after a reboot. Too early to say anything definitive but so far so good. Like the new font, apps I have opened/used this morning seem to be working fine, had to do a manual iCloud backup since it did not do an automatic one last night.

    Good to know. I honestly can't tell the difference between the old and new font.

    It's really sporadic for me





    This is from today which I took off the charger around 10AM and at 11% around 2AM


    Another time I would have a bit worse results

    Similar experience here. Battery life appears to have improved by leaps and bounds. Particularly impressed with the new low power mode. It really constricts battery drain. I don't think I got such good battery life even when the phone was new!

    Mine has been running fine. From my experience I can say it's safe to install iOS 9 public beta even on the primary device.

    One question, it seems that my app updates have gotten slower. As in, it seemingly takes longer to download app updates. Anybody else noticed anything like this?
