Finally decided to take the plunge and see how iOS 10 feels on my 6S. Feels very stable and fluid. Happy to recommended it as a daily driver.

Agreed! It seems like a good build to me as well. The couple bugs I have run across are manageable.

You don't have the dock issue everyone is reporting?
Good question. I use the "zoomed" view on my 6S Plus. So I don't rotate to and from landscape mode (not supported when zoomed). So I didn't know that was an issue until I saw the posts.

I tried each beta and downgraded for several reasons, but beta5 has been best so far. Except Good, everything works better, including battery life.

It's been pretty awesome. I just have a bug dealing with the dock. Sometimes it's transparent. Sometimes it's half and half. And sometimes it does this.

In my opinion this last beta is worse than the previous one. Anyway, all of them have been my daily drivers. If this one were the GM or the final version, I'd downgrade to iOS 9.

Which one is that?

On the iPad Pro, and some 6S Plus models, some people are getting the dock disappearing or having a weird appearance. I'd upload a picture, but for whatever reason I'm getting an error that the file extension doesn't match.

This.
Beta 5 is the first one that doesn't feel like a compromise for performance and stability. I tried Beta 4 and it wasn't there yet on 6S Plus.

That error trying to post images started with developer beta 1, not sure what's going on with that. Noticed it mostly when doing any kind of Mark up or crop on an image in Photos and trying to post that. Also file too large when trying to post a screenshot from the 12.9" iPad Pro (I can send the iPad SS's if I send it to my iPhone and then post. It's odd)

Far better than beta1 as others have pointed out. I started beta1 as my daily driver it was very slow, overheated the phone, constant restarts and the unbearable overall slow líneas of the os felt like being on an iPhone 3GS on iOS 9. Beta6 now has come a long way, and hopefully GM will be released soon.

Played around with it for a day today; not real fond of the latest iteration of iMessage (it's decidedly un-simple) and couldn't wrap my head around the newfangled notification system. But it looks good; everything worked, and I like the simpler unlock from the home key.
