    Yes. But you'll have to go to 10.3.3 then back to 10.3.2 or down to DP1 then back to 10.3.2 so extra steps.

    Yes. Google the "restore via DFU" method. You'll need to find the restore file (IPSW) for 10.3.2, though. Its available to developers but I don't think Apple provides that file to Public beta testers.

    Are you on the beta? Is it really buggy or is it usable?

    I was on DP1 and DP2 and found both too buggy for me and what I need. So I downgraded. I suggest waiting but some people have had success with it.

    Its really buggy. I would stay away. Nothing but issues with beta 2 on my Air 2 that were not there for Air 1. Stay away.

    If you do upgrade, make sure you turn off iCloud backup, so it doesn't get over-written, meaning you can't restore iCloud backup if you downgrade.

    I connected my iPad to my computer, put it in restore mode and iTunes automatically downloaded and installed 10.3.2...I didn't have to download anything separate. Not sure if/why it would be any different for any other device.

    Same here.

    Not sure why so many reports of a middle step.

    It has a lot of bugs, but I’m liking it a lot so far. If you’re scared, I wouldn’t install it on your main device.
    My biggest complaint is that the new photos and videos format are not compatible with google photos right now, so I can’t use that to backup my media until Google updates their app.
