    Really no idea where to put this one, iOS 9 Beta or here but we'll go here. I'm running the PB of El Cap on my main machine (reason why is elsewhere on here) and just for laughs the PB of iOS 9 on my iPad. My phone is still on iOS 8, seeing as that's quite an important bit of kit. Is it likely that Continuity and Handoff will require all devices to be on the newest versions of the OS?

    I ask because I'm not receiving FaceTime Audio calls on my phone when on the same wifi network but the Mac and iPad are ringing. Well, more accurately, the iPhone lights up briefly then goes dark with no indication there was ever a call. Also, the handoff feature doesn't appear to work between the phone and iMac, or at least to so far.

    If it's just an iOS 8 / El Cap issue then that's not a problem, but it'll drive me nuts if it stops working.

    Oh, and is anyone else having issues with the FaceTime calls notifications on OS X? Every single call I answer on my phone is showing as missed on the FaceTime badge. FaceTime Audio, cellular, the lot. I had to manually clear 27 'missed' calls from FaceTime yesterday. Is there a way to bulk clear those notifications?

    Not sure about FaceTime call notifications, but I'm also having issues.

    Since El Capitan Developer Beta 7, Handoff (of any kind) with my iPhone 6 (iOS 8.4.1) and with my other Mac (on OS X 10.10.5) doesn't work anymore. For example, I don't get the Instant Hotspot feature anymore (works from the other Mac), or the Handoff icons in the Dock.

    It worked until Beta 6. I already cleared all Handoff-related entries in Keychain Access.

    Is this a know bug in Beta 7 or is it just my setup that has gone wrong somehow?

    I've had issues with both handoff/instant hotspot and "missed calls" in Public Beta 5.
    I hope it's a known issue! I submitted a bug report. It worked fine w/ Public Beta 3, once I hit PB 4 it stopped working.

    At least it's not just me and my install then. That's good

    Beta 8 today has restored handoff between my rMBP and iPhone 5s running iOS9 Beta. Now working fine in both directions which it wasn't under previous DPs.

    I can confirm that it works again for me as well.

    I can hand off from Macbook to iOS, but not from iOS to Macbook. This previously worked flawlessly in every beta for both iOS and OSX.

    For me this morning it's working in the other direction - iOS9 to OSX but not the other way.
