    The betas have progressively gotten worse since 3. The device is unstable and unreliable to use now. I'm shocked Apple is botching this again after last year's nightmare with iOS 13
    I’m wondering if it’s an app that’s not compatible with iOS 14 that’s causing the issue. Although this beta irritated my soul, I’m not having any issues with it at all.

    I’m with Nikki. The iOS 14 beta has been far too stable to be described in the manner you’re describing, in my opinion. Something else might be the issue.

    Running very smoothly on my iPad!

    Regarding the iPhone version, has anyone seen if games using Geolocation (e.g., pokemon go) are finally working at all? I have a feeling the fix is needed on the game dev side (*cough* Niantic), but unsure. Sadly, I don’t want to update my “daily driver” iPhone 11 Pro to the beta without knowing if my games work.

    Honestly, first year since I want to say iOS 8 or 9 that I haven’t been running the beta on my primary iPhone since day 1

    Well, all was working fine through beta 3. So nothing changed on my end.

    The iOS betas have been mostly stable for me as well. Yes, there were those occasional bugs, but nothing show-stopping.


    Right now, I have a weird charging and screen locking bug, but I'll wait until the next beta to see if it's fixed

    I wish apple would allow the screen to be customized like Android is. Apple has too much control of our devices. I will admit ios 14 is definitely a leap towards better things.

    Maybe in the future, but I never really understood the fascination by android users to customize.

    It kind of feels that android is unfinished and the users needs to “customize” or finalize the experience. Those android users claim it’s fun but it just sounds like a chore and is time consuming.

    Sort of like when you buy furniture from ikea and have to “customize” or assemble said furniture.
    It’s great the ikea doesn’t exercise “control” by already delivering your furniture already assembled.

    And I feel that's one of Android's best feature, to customize. My take would be customize each furniture piece into my own designed room and call it my own.

    Anyone else not getting Facebook badge notifications the last couple betas?

    What are the big issues?
    -Constant springboard freezing (6-8 times per day)

    -Application freezing

    -Multiple applications not receiving badge notifications.

    All of these things above worked flawlessly through beta 3. Betas 4-6 have made the device performance progressively worse.

    I use to be an Android user & that was one of the things I loved most. Then I moved to iPhone with Verizon, due to an issue with Sprint, & realized how time consuming it was. It took a little while for me to get use to it but now I love not having to customize everything.

    It’s one of the things I hate about ikea stuff I can customize my furniture, elsewhere, with a design specialist & the company will assemble, delivery it, & put it where I want. Yes it costs more, but my time is everything to me.

    I ended up wiping and re-installing the beta, to try and resolve my issues, can't say that its been a good experience with these betas.

    Only issue for me is when tapping “Screen Time” in settings takes a while to go into the screen time settings, hangs for a few seconds or so, every time.
