Is it just me or this beta is not a beta? It feels like an alpha version, everything crashes.
No, it's the first beta, other betas will fix the crashes. There can be up to 7 betas before public release.
oh and the Betas are not supposed to crash?
Yeah but this beta crashes every f. time
Great! It means it is a reproducible bug. Remember to report it to Apple.
Have you tried iOS 7 beta 1? It did crash quite a lot and battery life was very bad (and device overheating all time)
I am not testing iOS 8 betas this year.
This is why Apple recommend the developers use a test phone and not their everyday phone. I do think iOS8 is a bit more buggier then prior versions but I don't know first hand. I avoid putting iOS betas on my phones as a matter of policy. They are usually pretty buggy and I need my phone for work - having it crash all the time would be no good for me.
Funny, hardly crashes at all for me. Settings is the only Apple app that crashes.
Perhaps, but that shouldn't diminish the frustration that others feel, as they are experiencing more instability.
I understand that, but this is a beta after all, and is expected to crash. If users can't accept that, they probably shouldn't be running a beta.
I agree completely, and that's why I avoid it. I do think some betas are more stable then others and based on my unscientific research, this one seems a bit less stable then prior versions.
Beta 1, is beta 1, and there's lots of rough edges. I've never understood people who rush out to install a beta on a phone that they use everyday - to each his own, but its not something I'm willing
I am using it on my r mini and I use that bug report all the time. My logic is that more people use a beta, it is much easier for apple to fix the bugs.
If you are a developer or at least know the risk of running a beta you wouldn't be complaining like this. You could use the bug report tool to report it. Until GM Apple do not recommend betas for day to day use.
i started out testing on my 5s, iPad, and 10.10 on the new iMac. I have since taken it off my daily 5s cause the instability outweighed the testing. I will pick back up iPhone testing hopefully next beta until then i got the iPad going.
So yes i agree it is to unstable (for me) to really run it.
What do you want it's a beta it can do that!
This Beta hardly ever crashes for me, tbh the only app that gives me most of my issues is the photos app, its a bit buggy, but still nothing major
I think people have got far too used to the Google definition of Beta.
I think this beta is pretty stable. Enough so that I've been running it on my daily use device. The main issues I have are with 3rd party apps that have of course not yet been updated.
Your question is like asking, is it just me or is this filtered water, water? It taste like unfiltered water, which is still... water.
It's not a beta, it's a Developer Preview. So yes, equivalent to Alpha.
Works pretty darn good for me using it 24/7. Rare crashes, few reproducible bugs but nothing that bad. Clearly the same or better build quality than prior Beta 1s. Overall very impressed.
Mine rarely crashes and i'm trying it on an iPod Touch 5. Just deal with it until they release a beta 2 or further
Not if you don't properly report bugs, otherwise it just creates more work for Apple. Just don't install it if you don't consider yourself a developer and know how to proceed as required. The idea is to help not to preview it.
Many applications haven't been updated to work with the new/modified areas iOS 8 has therefore some will definitely experience crashes until they are updated properly.
The version before this one was an alpha version, so it makes sense if this feels like it.
Agreed. I thought this to myself earlier, but decided against posting it. Haha
