    Download it and tell everyone then.

    It's only been out a whole few minutes total and no OTA (yet) so it requires a full backup and restore- which takes time and not 5 minutes.

    WAY too early to know; maybe in a n hour or so unless an OTA comes out.

    You don't need to do a full backup and restore to update iOS with iTunes. Well, a backup is recommended but you don't even have to do that.

    Just hold down option while clicking "Check for update" and specify the ipsw file. It will upgrade iOS and keep your data intact.

    There's no OTA for Beta 1. Only public beta, if the beta profile is installed. Maybe tomorrow then... IMZDL used to provide downloads for betas on the same day, but it seems they're out of business.

    That was quick hopefully being sarcastic. God knows how people can tell battery is improved the same day the update. Maybe roughly 2 days usage should give you proper idea. As then you have used it in real world terms and how you would normally use your phone.

    Ejem. Clearly, it was sarcasm, but not as unnecessary as your reply.

    Well true but back up highly recommended of course.

    The point was no one is going to have answers 6 min after release, its unreasonable.

    Correct, which is why I said give people time. Its not a 3 min button on the phone. People need their itunes etc so it wont be minutes with results from many people.

    Good catch on IMZDL, that was sudden. Glad I didnt buy anything from them recently (old iphone had a dev account with them).

    Then what does it matter if you cannot even use it no matter what the results? :rolleyes:

    When the results are out they will be; there is no OTA update from Settings this time. You have to hook to itunes to update, so this will slow the results of many people who usually hit the "update" on the phone and have it in 5 min and flood here to report the bugs/changes.

    Asking minutes later is WAY premature. It's been over an hour and it seems only 2 or 3 people are commenting at all that they installed it so far.

    I don't find it unreasonable at all to ask as there are no time limits for replying for when they do have an answer.

    Actually, there is a way to tell if battery has improved the same day you installed the update. If you keep track of previous updates and how the battery was impacted right after the update, you can make comparisons. For example, after installing 9.2B4 over 9.2B3, there was a massive battery increase on my devices. There was a lot less background activity going on (watching the CPU) immediately following the install.

    Except not everyone is going to be as meticulous. Hopefully like yourself there is a few people on here that do this. But to be able to tell what the battery is 10mins after an update really.

    10 minutes no. 3-4 hours yes. My method takes about 3 hours to compare. But I'm really crazy when it comes to this stuff lol. o_O

    I like to use for a few days to get a full picture as my usage can change day to day. As my little boy will sometimes want to watch things on my device where as I don't so for me a good 2 days gives me a good picture.
