Welcome to the all-new iMore Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Oh wow this is what I’m afraid of. Thanks for sharing! What’s your device btw?
Been using the dev beta 2 on my iPhone X daily driver since it was released, with no major issues whatsoever.
All my apps work fine, battery life has been stellar, no random reboots, and I’m absolutely loving the increased speed and new features.
Sure, there are a few minor glitches, but this is way better than early 12 betas were this time last year. Way better!
I’m using the beta on my primary device being the XS Max. One drive has stopped uploading photos and mail is not sending emails with pictures correctly. I’m thinking of switching back to 12.4 but I’m loving dark mode and the new swiping keyboard too much to take the plunge backwards lol
That dark mode is what keeps on beckoning me to take the plunge. And the optimised battery charging. How’s that doing?
Been using it since yesterday. Yes, a little glitchy but nothing out of the ordinary.
Sounds about right to most of the feedback regarding the first public beta. I hope the second beta gets here soon as I’m waiting for it too!Im going change my answer. I went back to my S10+ until PB2 is released. It was really bad while driving. Car play would not stay connected. google maps was crashing and Siri would tell me that she can only call one person at a time when I tried to make a call.
I haven’t noticed anything about the battery other than it draining lol. I was at 100% 4 hours and 20 minutes ago. I’m now at 38%
I am running it on my primary device.
For the apps I use I have only noticed one issue. If I am working on an email on the outlook app and leave the app. I have to force close the app to get back into my draft email. (I am not able to open back up the email) Which is not that big of a deal.
Most of the issues people are having with this release are in regars to apps that I never touch.
I would recommend looking at the high priority apps that you use and see if those are having any major issues. If so then you should not have it on your primary device.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I’m seriously mulling taking the plunge over the weekend. Though over at the Reddit thread there appears to be quite a few complaints..
Hi folks. So every year I install the public betas on my primary (and only) iPhone because I’m too impatient! I’ve read on CNET that this year’s public release is riddled with bugs and the worst in many years.
Just wanted to know how many of you will be/have already installed the beta on your primary devices and how’s it holding up?
I’m in agreement with Garz. The iOS 13 beta is indeed one of the most stable in my opinion.
You should remember this is still a beta and no one persons experience will be consistent across the board. One person can have no issues while the next could be riddled with issues. Your mileage will truly vary when we are talking betas. That's why it's always something you do after you are accepting of any possible risks associated with running beta software on a primary device.
It is buggy still, and I don’t think Apple should have released the public beta yet..
It’s a beta?? Just because they’re calling it a public beta you think it shouldn’t be buggy???
Not attacking but good grief, I’m thrilled they even have a public beta, as thousands of others are for sure, and you’re complaining about a beta being buggy...
