    My primary iPhone (iPhone XS Max) and primary iPad (iPad Pro 10.5") are running current iOS 12.4.

    Did you install iOS/iPadOS 13 on your primary iOS Devices?

    I have it on my X and Pro 11” and haven’t had enough issues to warrant going back. Obviously there are some bugs, and battery life is not great. All my apps work and I’m loving the new features. Sidecar is amazing and so much more convenient than 3rd party solutions when I’m on the go.

    Yep; it's on my XS; have had no issues at all. In fact, I've found reception to be slightly better (which, if you know/have read anything about the XS, is fantastic).

    Yeah, running iOS13 and iPadOS13 on both my primary devices.
    Some minor glitching, but hasn't reduced my enjoyment of the products at all.

    My only issue is with the one device I don't run a Beta on...my Apple Watch. After the latest iOS13 update (5) my watch battery is just awful. Weird coincidence? Not according to the multitude of people that are having the same issues.

    It's just one of those things.

    Yes. On my XS Max and Air 3. Because I had a lot of problems with 12.4. It’s funny that this happens to me every year.

    I had iOS 13 PB installed for a couple days on my 11" IPP just to try out the new features. I'm back on iOS 12 now.

    I do have iOS 13 PB installed on a secondary iPhone though.

    Runs fine on my iphone7+. Slightly worse battery drain but nothing major that’s holding up my everyday use.

    Too scared to try it on my iPad yet, after reading about the iCloud glitches. Probably just wait until its a GM.

    Same here. My Series 4 battery doesn’t even last a full day. Btw iOS 13 on my iPhone X & iPadOS 13 on my 12.9 gen 3. Watch on 5.3.

    Can I ask what iCloud glitches are you talking about? Did a forum search and couldn’t find anything ...

    What watch do you use? I have the Series 3 and haven’t noticed any difference. But... I also have mine on watchOS 5.2, so that might be making a difference.

    Series 4 - seems to be localized to just that model from the threads I am reading...

    Installed PB5 on both iPad Air 2 and iPhone 7, no problems so far.

    Edit: Still no issues, but battery life is really bad on both devices, draining about 40% faster than iOS 12.4 under the same use, so beware if you cannot plug-in often!

    Edit 2: iPhone 7 also overheats quite a bit while on simple tasks, like using Apple Maps or Apple Music.

    Have it on my iPhone X latest beta and it’s restarting quite often, every other beta was fine and often freezes when I play music through my cars Bluetooth. Other than that it’s been a smooth experience for me.

    Quite bad in my experience.

    On iPhone 7 it drains even as it sits idle with the screen off. On iPad Air 2 it went from 100% down to 50% in 3 hours (I was using Notes, Apple Music on the background and Safari). In iOS 12.4 doing the same things on the same iPad would still leave me with about 75-80% of battery power left.

    It is my primary on my iPad Pro 11. Seems good so far. Tempted to do it for my iPhone X, but will probably hold off some yet.

    I waited until I came back from vacation but all my machines and devices are updated to the latest beta.

    A month ago I would definitely had said no but honestly iOS and Catalina aren't that much different. iPadOS is quite a departure, though.

    I have iPadOS 13 installed on my iPad 11. All my other devices are on the general releases. For me, it's still too unstable to run the betas. The annoyance factor is high when encountering bugs!

    Just wait for the GM to release in early September.

    It's on my daily driver 7 plus and it's worked well for me just fine. A bit buggy but nothing that'll stop me from using it reliably.
