    Hi guys,

    what can you tell me about iOS 11 B3 for using this Version as daily driver?

    Battery?
    iPhone heating?

    Thanks

    I've been using every beta as a daily driver and this is the best so far but I still think the battery is a bit flakey, not getting hot like on beta 2 though.

    Put it this way I'm down to 20% after taking phone off charge at 08:30, that's flakey to me.

    Battery might be suspect, as was each of the previous betas so I personally wouldn't call it "worse", but it definitely seems...

    wait for it...

    snappier.

    Battery is the biggest issue for me. The rest I can work with. I bombed Springboard once this morning, but that has been about it. Everything else is running ok and yeah, it's a bit snappier. Just make sure you have access to charging if you are a moderate to heavy user.

    Battery is probably the same for me, right now I'm on 57% with 3 hours 8 minutes usage with 6 hours 18 mins standby. My main issue is that the phone continues to heat up A LOT so I'm having to use a case with the phone. For me i haven't found any bugs that would annoy me a lot. Apart from the heat and slight battery issue, everythings fine

    Beta 3 been an improvement for all my apps so Manga Rock and my Amazon video downloads werent working on beta 2 but now they're working and the volume on my Airpods have improved although not quite iOS 10 levels.

    I can say the phone heats up less often now.

    Battery seems better but still not iOS 10 levels. I wonder if updating to beta 3 if anything is going on in the background that I'm not taking into consideration cause if so then the battery is surely an improvement over beta 2.

    I can recommend beta 3 as a daily driver but couldnt recommend the previous 2 builds.

    running on an iPhone 6S.

    I can also recommend beta 3 on iPhone 6s as a daily driver. Much improved over beta 2. No resprings yet. Seems a lot smoother. Also running WatchOS 4 beta 2.

    Much improved from beta 2. Definitely stable enough for a daily driver.

    Much improved on my iPhone 7 and my iPad Pro 10.5.

    Especially on the phone. Much, much smoother.

    Been using the PB on my 7 since it was originally made available and in my experience, there are the usual bugs but nothing that really hinders me from using the device on a daily basis.

    Been experiencing very frequent Wifi dropouts on my 7+, even after clean restore to beta 3 image. Not sure if this is just an isolated thing, but definitely downgrading to iOS 10 for now, at least until next beta.

    It's great on the normal 7 though!

    Yep, I can confirm this too: battery is worse than beta 1 and 2. Fell asleep with battery at 50% (low-power mode), woke up to a dead phone
