    Dose IOS 10 beta 3 kinda safe to install on my personal phone? It is smooth and good performance like IOS 9.3.3?

    Me note using alot of apps , using like these apps: phone/chrome/whatsapp/messages/Facebook+messenger/.
    Are these apps work fine on ios 10b3?

    Its not so buggy, u can install it or not. In real usage, it seems equal to ios 9.3.3

    However,, it has some bugs,. For example, I am losing wifi connection all the time since I update to IOS 10 beta 2

    OP, it really depends which phone do u have

    Feels as snappy as iOS 9. There are still some bugs although nothing major.

    Saying it feels like 9.3.3 is impossible. 9.3.3 is a minor update and it had 5 betas on its own.

    Running a beta can be unpredictable and can't be compared to a general release like 9.3.3. If you need that kind of reliability then beta might not be for you

    Beta 1 was really buggy, the last two had occasional crashes and some app compatibility issues, but for the most part didn't get in the way,

    Your logic on that makes no sense.

    I'm trying to decide to be on the Public Beta release cycle or the dev beta cycle. Are they going to remain the same?

    Yes. Just like they've always have since iOS 8.3. Developer just typically comes out a day or two sooner. Identical builds. No reason to swap.

    Search the forums about running betas. This is asked weekly
    Betas are not meant to run on primary devices

    As for apps, the FIRST POST in this forum says IOS 10 Compatible apps..

    So I have been debating whether to use iOS 10 Public Beta on my daily. I have done non-approved Dev betas in the past and some were great and some caused a bunch of issues. Is the Public Beta stable enough to run on a daily iPhone 6? I don't mind minor glitches occasional crashes is ok but major usability would drive me crazy.

    Any insight would be much appreciated!

    Also if you downgrade back do you lose all your data on your phone? I remember when I would do that before all saved data while using the beta was lost because you had to revert back using an older back up before moving to the Beta.

    i wouldn't suggest using it if you're someone impatient. I get pissed when my phone lags or crashes. The only beta i've used was ios 7 and that was worth it even with the bugs, cuz complete new design.

    I've been using it since pb came out and have had no large bugs, knock on wood lol a bit laggy at time and small bugs that are fairly easy to work around for now, like the Pokémon go ar not working. But overall fairly stable with only a couple reboots. But don't get it if you're not patient with that kind of thing because it's not going to be perfect.

    My "daily" is the only phone I have at home and on the road. So I won't risk beta software on that. I also have an iPad, and it doesn't matter if that crashes, so iOS10 public beta is on that.

    Frankly iOS 10 runs better than when I ran jailbroken iPhone well worth it as a daily driver no problems whatsoever and fewer crashes!

    It runs well for me on my 6s plus. That said it does have a few bugs but I used windows insider preview on my lumia windows phones so I am used to some bugs. The bugs aren't that bad TBH
