    Does it fix the issue where you mark one item as complete in notifications and they all disappear?

    I'm interested in and using the beta, but for me, beta 1 was actually quite stable and fixed all of the issues that I was aware of in 8.1.1.

    I'm sure there is a much smaller audience for this beta than there was for the iOS 8.0 betas, though.

    The only potential issue I saw in beta 1 was flaky bluetooth, but I'm not entirely certain whether that was an iOS issue or a problem with my pebble. I haven't been using beta 2 long enough to see if it's resolved the flakyness.

    I guess most people rather stay with a jailbroken device than to test a beta at this point.

    Does anyone else find the transition between the lock screen and home screen's status bar really jarring in 8.2? Can't remember it being this way in 8.1...

    On the lock screen it is slightly bigger and it reverts to iPhone 6 size in the home screen but the transition just looks terrible.

    I noticed this last night also on my 6 Plus.

    I'm still getting the bug where do not disturb in a group text doesn't work. Anyone find a fix? I tried turning off then on.

    From some youtube videos, it seems that beta 2 continually improves on performance for low end devices compared to 8.1.2. The lag that occurs on tapping apps no longer seems to occur or is much improved.

    Don't count on it. Next beta will be after the holidays most likely.

    ----------

    Has the Safari closing iCloud beta tabs been fixed here?

    No, I have not installed on my main device. Keeping that on 8.1 while Apple keeps ****ing up these builds.

    Does it fix the disappearing notifications on the lock screen? To replicate: Get a notification from WhatsApp around three seconds after you lock the phone and the screen will turn back on without any notifications in the lockscreen.
