    I'm on the developer beta, and after using for a full 24 hours. I went back to iOS 12.4, this is still far too buggy. Hopefully it will become smoother in the next 2 beta builds.

    Nothing out of the ordinary on my iPad Pro 12.9, Mini 5 or iPhone X (all are primary daily devices).

    If anything I expected more drain because I’m using the devices more. with the Public Betas installed (test new features, etc) but I haven’t noticed anything different.

    I hate to ask this, as I’m sure it’s grating for many, but how’s the battery life with this beta? I’ve heard what I don’t want to hear, so I’m still a bit hesitant.

    Am I understanding this correctly that the only way to role back to a public version of iOS after installing a beta is to restore from a saved backup via iTunes?

    Honestly for me it seems to be pretty similar to IOS 12, maybe even a little better at times.

    I have been using the new beta and so far no issues to report.

    One question I have though is regarding the Mail app.

    I saw the new listed features in ios 13 Mail include a "reply later" function, and categorizing email. Are these features included in Mail yet? I cant seem to find them.

    If anyone has a review they have found that walks through all the new features related to the Mail app that would be helpful! I cant seem to find anything!

    This definitely feels more polished than the previous betas. Animation and touch sensitivity and movement feel fluid and fast. Haven’t noticed any real beta “problems” yet. On iPhone X 256GB

    Can you tell me if the final version of a beta is the public version?

    Usually the last version is the "Gold master" which is the same as the one non-beta testers get.

    My battery life has been decent but now I have the smart battery case because some days I am out longer. I like the smart battery case. Highly recommend if you have battery issues. It’s comfortable to hold

    Thank you. So one who has the “Gold Master” won’t be asked to update to the public version?

    The GM is just the official release. Both developer and public releases will be out a few days to a week or so before the official rollout in September. When iOS 13 is officially released, with both betas being the GM, there will be no prompt to update your software.

    Appreciate your help. I was actually asking regarding the 12.4 update. I stopped taking them back when it was beta 3 or 4, and was wondering if I update to beta 7 will it also prompt me to update the final version.

    Thank you.

    Did you go to Settings->General→ Profile and verify that the beta profile was installed?

    If you haven’t already, remove the profile then log into the Apple Beta Software Program site and download it again. Afterwards, install the newly downloaded beta profile.

    Auto brightness on iOS 13 doesn't work well for me. I keep my lights off during the day. I get plenty of light from my windows. It's easier on my eyes this way. But when I enable auto brightness, it turns down to about 15% brightness, and I can't see the screen well enough. So, I pull up the control center and adjust it to about 25%. A minor inconvenience. 15% is just too low. It might be enough if it were night time dark.

    I tried searching only post I could find was from developer beta 3 and no one replied to him/ her but on my iPad everything is fine but my iPhone the settings badge is there and says I have a software update but I’m updated ? Anyone else have this ? Scratch that I missed it it’s on my iPad as well. I can ignore it but my concern is when next update comes out if I’ll be able get it or not.

    I had that issue and it eventually went away. There was a post that said to turn WiFi off and on but that didn’t seem to help. I just happened to notice that the badge wasn’t there anymore.

    Yes but you also have to put your device back on the public release. So if you use iTunes to backup 12.4, install 13 beta, and want to go back to 12.4, you'll first have to put your device back on 12.4 then restore the iTunes backup. You can't restore different iOS versions.
