I can't get past the spinning wheel when I go to the software update page in settings. I'm gonna take that as a good sign.

Click the drop-down menu at the top and make sure that "Hide iCloud Books" is turned off.
It's off. I can see the books, just when I tap on them they turn grayish, like it looks like they're downloading or something, but nothing further happens...

Either I've not been paying much attention or in iOS 9.3 Beta, it shows usage statistics under Wi-Fi Assist?

Decided to give 9.3 beta 1 a go, and whoa first impression?

I like this new multi switcher a lot. Its faster, smoother, and the 2 taptic engine "taps" is a very cool touch.

Other initial impressions - Speed is the same on 6s (its just as fast as before) but I did notice the NC and CC both animate faster than they did prior. They suddenly appear with swiping, which give a faster feel and is very nice.

Also the new 3D touch shortcuts are fantastic. I can remove some Launcher icons and thereby simplify my widgets now. 3D touch has only become better and better with time and the quick access to the battery menu is great, especially if one wants to enable power saving mode prior to the 20% notification.

Considering this is only beta 1, I'm impressed!


edit: just wanted to add, this nightshift mode is awesome. f.lux was probably the main reason I would jailbreak my iPhones in the past. Very significant feature in my opinion.

This for me still shows that iOS should be on an slightly longer refresh cycle. As per usual it will take several months for the performance to be up to par, meaning certain users are unhappy with performance in the meantime. I wish Apple would take the time to get the new build of iOS up to the quality of a .3 release before releasing it, rather than making us all beta testers for 3 or 4 months.

Or, we could just offset our update cycles by 6 months so when you do update, it's already at x.3 or something. And not update at day one and complain about buggy software :) I'm guilty of that too but lately I'm making an effort not to update to early versions of OSes on day one. And it's better, really.

I just switched to Android (!?!?! iPhone 6 went through the washing machine ;) ). If you read the Android forums for my LG G4, users are experiencing the same problems people experience here when updating to a x.0 iOS version. Android Mashmallow has a slew of problems that require fixing before I'll update.

Like you said, it's a smart idea to offset your update schedule to ensure a stable device. The point is, if you want to have a reliable experience on ANY platform, wait a few months before updating to the latest, greatest OS.

Not really, until iOS 8 you had to be a registered developer and register your phone. With the public beta's and now the beta profile, you really only have to install a profile on your phone and then you're good to go. It's become much easier to install beta's, and they also have become more accessible.

How do you install a profile to use the public beta?

I wish all bugs were this amusing. I could watch that keyboard drift down all day long.
Why is this animation even considered a "bug"? It is very fluid and consistent considering the distance the objects travel to arrive at their new location. I say it's designed to do just that. 6s plus here.

Anybody else seeing this on 9.3, or seen it on an earlier version? :)

We haven't been able to duplicate it, but having a hard time forcing a switchover to cellular to test.
