    Is the current public beta of iOS 13 stable to use on my main daily iPhone XS or is it riddled with bugs?

    Up to 6 hours ago I would have said very stable, but i've had a couple of random reboots when the phone was doing nothing.

    I had my first respring today. Battery kinda sketchy as of late. All apps I need are working.

    Thanks for the input, I’ll just keep iOS 12. When is iOS 13 supposed to come out officially? September?

    July is the public beta. I expect it to be much more stable by then. I’m a frequent charger so I should add that I’m still using on main iPhone and iPad.

    Final release will be early September with hardware release. Along with expectedly more software features for newly announced hardware.

    If it’s like last year, the latest iOS was released a few days to a week or so before the new iPhones, which came preinstalled with it.

    Most likely some point in mid-late September, I’d imagine.

    For a 1st beta it is very stable, Only had 1/2 respiring, battery for me is even better than 12.3.1 ( could be dark mode effect), all apps working for me.

    But all of above could change during other betas, as we have seen in past.

    If you have patience to deal with little glitches then jump on, if not wait for final release which I am sure will be brilliant in every way!

    Always take a Archive backup so data loss is minimal incase it doesn’t work out.

    I agree with everything said above but will add one thing. It’s more stable than all of iOS 11 was on my 6s Plus. I’m not kidding.

    To clarify, there is no public beta. This is just the first developer preview.

    Correct, if you really wanna get it you could wait till late July / early August when the major bugs should be ironed out. Plus all of these responses were for dev beta 1. By the time the public betas release in July it should be fairly stable and free of any major bugs.

    Aside from native mail app not forwarding emails properly and a few cosmetic UI issues it’s pretty stable. I’m running it on my XR

    Mail app works fine for me, I have 4 accounts and use gmail for push notifications but use mail app to read and it’s is very fast in beta too.

    I have always wondered how they manage the logistics of installing it on millions of devices in such a short space of time.

    While I like it on the iPad, I found it to be too buggy for me on my XS max. Rolled back to 12.4 beta. May try the public beta when it comes out.

    Working great here on my XS, I installed via Windows 10/3utools, preserved my data too, it’s working very well, no resprings as of yet and no issues with apps.

    It has tons of bugs. I can't even add my Exchange account. But I'm riding the storm.

    I installed on my Xs Max and SE earlier today. I haven't had any real problems thus far. If I do, I can easily restore to iOS 12. At the moment, I am keeping my 2 iPad mini 5's on 12.3.1

    I have it on my 2018 iPad Pro and it's livable-with, especially because the new features are immediately excellent (especially the multi slideover windows). It's not perfect and I've had a few resprings, but good enough. But I won't install it on my phone yet, because I've been burned with subsequent DP releases suddenly introducing catastrophic battery drain issues or killing essential apps; I'll wait until public beta 2 or 3 to put it on the phone.

    Catalina on the other hand - that's causing all kinds of fundamental issues with my fusion iMac and I'm seriously thinking about going back to 10.14...

    Yeah. I had very bad experience with it and spent a fair amount of time trying to install iOS 13 using their fancy finder. Restarts after restarts, installs after installs, connect, disconnect. Jesus. Thankfully iOS 13 is finally loaded and I can keep using old iTunes 12.6.5 to sync music (yes!) BEFORE I install that 5MB mobiledevice.pkg thing.

    Speaking of which, that pkg essentially removes the constant nag of “software update required” window every time I connect my iPhone to Mac.

    I just got it last night and it’s been great. No crashes. It feels like the first release of an iOS. Not a beta.
