Yes or no? Quite tempted but also happy to wait for beta 6 etc. Would be on an iPhone 7.
Based on all the replies in the beta 5 thread, I would say no. Kind of disappointing how many bugs are still present this close to release but they still have time to fix things up. Maybe beta 6 will be suitable.
Just started playing around with it.
Like before, rock solid on my 2015 Pro 12.9.
iPhone still has issues. (7 plus)
The screen properly goes black when hitting the sleep button.
Last beta it would just dim and be unresponsive.
It still is unresponsive for me.
I start playing a song in the music app, hit sleep and I lose all access to the phone for a good 20-30 seconds.
Haven’t tested if the phone keeps ringing 2-3 seconds after answering it yet.
no stay away from beta 5 its horrible
I've been using it since the first public beta, and it's been a bit buggy but no show stoppers, at least not for me. The latest beta seems pretty solid so far. This is on iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Pro 12.9
Daily driver no. But if your curious like I was, just try it to see what's up.
I tried the first beta on an iPad and it was pretty good actually. But what's the rush?
Latest beta is junk. Avoid.
No show stoppers on my 7 plus AFTER I did a hard reset (press and hold Power+VOLdown) until Apple logo is shown. Before I had freezes etc.
Beta 5 is the best one for me yet on the iPhone 7 Plus. Beta 4 was glitchy and I had high CPU issues. This one is quite OK for me.
Of course everyone's usage is different.
Beta 5 on my 7+ is fine I’ve not noticed any bugs, even beta 4 was stable for me.
I usually do a reset all settings on a beta, and this was setup as new on beta 3 but tbh if this was close to final I wouldn’t be surprised at all. There have been worse iOS releases for sure.
However, I don’t discount this is just my experience and there are many who are having problems still
Well.... Only 6 or 4 months until ios 11 is as stable and fluid as iOS 10.3.3
I'm reading these shorter threads just to see why people are posting.
Personally, I had grown used to Apple and learned to trust them enough that I would usually use beta firmware in daily driver, mission critical main devices.
ios11 was a game changer and eye opener for me, however. Valuable lesson learned and I will probably eschew future beta on the mission critical daily driver.
nope, it's actually very good!
This Beta for me is the worst one I’ve used since Beta 1. It seems to added more bugs for me than it fixed
I've got it running on my iPhone 7, iPad Mini, and iPad Pro. I haven’t found myself unable to do anything I’d ordinarily do. Couple soft resets here and there but otherwise no problems. The multi tasking on iPad is worth it for me, and I really appreciate the new Control Center on iPhone.
I'd say no, worse than the last beta for me.
I have not noticed much difference compared to the previous beta on my iPad Air 2 & iPhone SE, however the latest beta feels faster. Updated to PB4 OTA and restarted both devices straight away to avoid any old interference. So far, so good.
Avoid beta 5 it’s garbage
Download beta 5 now it’s amazing
I've used it as a DD since PB1 on my iPhone 7+ 256g and while iOS11 has had some quirks only a few of my apps just absolutely refused to work in the beginning. I am currently on PB4 and only one app out of 100+ that will not work (WaltDisneyWorld App for the parks). This does not include my older 32bit apps that I had to just remove all together from PB1. There are still some bugs here and there with display, bluetooth and music play back though basic OS functionality seems to be great so far as my experience goes.
Highly recommend if you do update to let your reactions to responsiveness just sit in the back of your mind for a couple hours afterwards. Be sure to do a hard reset or two. Also be mindful of any new/extra battery drainage that may happen because of "beta".
Works great for me, but if you feel the need to create a post to ask the question...you should stay far away. Trust me, it's junk.
I wonder why I haven’t seen one update since installing the public beta a month ago.

ETA: I guess I needed to install the beta profile again.

The betas run smooth when not signed into iCloud, but iCloud is critical for me. I can’t win.
Beta 5 makes my Air 2 feel like the original iPad :-(
Oh yea? Well Beta 5 prints $20 bills out my printer. Beta 5 is the shnizzle!
Seems Faster graphically and speed wise on my mini 4.
