    So far not nearly as stable as beta 2. Even went with a clean install .

    iMessage is buggy
    Email and text messages reading wrong notifications
    Photo stream crashes photos app
    iPad won't connect to wifi until I put in my passcode
    No weather info in notification

    Beta 2 was solid as a rock for me,this one is a mess so far.

    Also can't see my app purchases in App Store

    For me its the complete opposite of you guys on here, beta 2 was usable but had a lot of lag and stutter and would respring a lot. Beta 3 is SO MUCH BETTER, its much smoother and usability is much more improved. Since noticing how stable and reliable it is I'm going to jump the gun and install beta 3 on my iPhone 5. i guess you just have to take your chances. You might have zero problems with it.

    Same for me. Beta 3 is noticeably better and more stable.

    Beta 2 lagged and wasn't stable. Beta 3 is smoother, faster and overall better for me.

    Beta 3 is way better then beta 2 was on my iPad 3.


    I have none of these problems aside from photo stream on my iPad 3

    I fixed my iMessage bug by unchecked my . Still reading wrong amounts for emails and texts no matter what. But location and weather working fine.

    I agree beta 3 is MUCH better for me on my iPad 3. Beta 2 was unusable. Both setup as clean installs. Odd there are such big differences in experiences.

    I'm just surprised my beta2 experience was so good

    Seems more usable. Wifi hasn't cut out yet, beta 2 cut wifi every 5 minutes. Typing also seems faster with Beta 3.

    Only major issue so far seems to be with iPhoto. If you go to your album view, selecting any album (not just photo stream) crashes the app. However, if you are in the "photos" tab, and viewing all photos, it works fine.

    Photo Stream Crashes photos app

    I didn't test much yet, but iOS 7 BETA 3 crashes my photos app every time I try accessing the PHOTO STREAM. I did the incremental update, and when the crash occured, I did a fresh install. Same problem in both cases.

    I can't speak for the rest of the funtions yet.

    Been very unimpressed with keyboard responsiveness. I have a feeling apple does this intentiallu with devices over a year old.

    Keyboard responsiveness is one of the biggest beta casualties. Every beta that I've used, all the way back to iOS 4 I think has had terrible keyboard response. This is one of those things that gets worked out in the GM but it's laggy in the betas (likely due to some logging or something).

    As for beta 3 it has been leaps and bounds better for me. Beta 2 was really really slow and had a slew of bugs, beta 3 is a lot better but still nowhere near the iPhone build yet.

    I've been using b3 on my iPad 3 for about a day now, and overall, it seems more stable than b2. Like others, though, trying to access the camera roll and photostream from the photo app causes crashes.

    I also experience crashes when trying to email or iMessage a photo (camera roll or photostream) from the mail or iMessage app.

    Videos and panoramas are still working correctly.

    I haven't experienced this issue on my other devices running b3

    It seems much better for me as well. It hasn't crashed on me yet and feels much more stable. All the animations and transitions are much more smooth as well.

    One thing that still doesn't work for me is when I'm on the home screen, and I touch a folder in the dock, it doesn't zoom into it as it does if it's a single app or a folder on the home screen. It just jumps to it. I assume this isn't what the final version would look like, as that makes it inconsistent from the visual display of how the rest of it works. Happening to anyone else?

    I installed Beta3 on my iPhone 5 and iPad 3 (ATT) this afternoon.

    Love it on my phone but couldn't wait to downgrade to ios6 on my pad.

    Everytime I even searched for a purchased app, it would crash to the home screen.

    The Chrome icon was messed up.

    PvZHD would crash.

    Everything was all around sluggish.

    iPhone 5 = very usable.
    iPad3 = feels like an unstable beta

    Definitely not the case. There's not much keyboard lag if any on the iPhone 4 with iOS 6.

    And as somebody else mentioned, this is still a beta. It would be like me judging your sense of style halfway through you getting dressed.

    Agreed though it is a bit concerning it appears to be lagging the stability on the iPhone side of the ecosystem by so much.

    Yep. The iPad betas clearly have a more involved process ahead of them, that's for sure. Pretty sure it's because they didn't start putting resources into iPad optimization until late in the game. It should all work out by the official release, of course.

    I agree with this 100%. I feel like the difference between B2 and B3 on the iPad is pretty big. We have 2 whole months to go! Think of the changes! Think of the polish! Think of the children!:)

    Can anyone confirm if the app "Noteshelf" works on beta 3? It's a deal breaker for me if not, I'd have to wait for GM.
