Beta 3 is sucking on my 5S. Apps are hanging, delay when texting, you name it. I should be able to safely go back to beta 2 with a restore no? (I never really had to before, but beta 3 is not nice to me haha.

Thanks,
A

Nope. A restore will not do it. You will have to use the dmg/ipsw file to install beta 2.

Most people say beta 3 is solid. Try reinstalling?

That should be doable, at least until beta 2 expires in a few weeks toward the end of the month.

This site is littered with comments to the contrary. Its the reason I am staying on B2. When B2 expires, I will move up but I hope that's a few weeks from now.

My iPhone 5 seems to be doing much better with Beta 3 but I have to tell you that since beta 1 I did not do OTA updates instead I downloaded the dmg and did a restore.

I would say most was wrong, but that it's 50/50 which beta people are preferring.

EDIT- Eh ok, I'll say a third like beta 3, but there are some bugs. I will be installing beta 2.
