    Now that iOS 9 beta 3 is official, how is the battery life and performance compared to Beta 2 and earlier? Is it stable enough for a daily driver

    My 5s was going at around 2% per minute just on the home screen.

    Seemed to stop draining and heating like a boss after a reboot though!

    But drain seems slightly faster than B2 on my 6+.

    Performance wise things seemed a bit jittery on my 6+ much more so than in B2 - referring to simple animations. - It felt VERY android-esque with the jittery animations but that stopped after a reboot and is a lot better now (but naturally not as good/smooth as 8.4 but that's to be expected!)

    I would say it's looking good so far. It's been or about 2-3 hours now. Doing all my usual stuff for the last hour or so and I'm down to 94%. I would say that's a little better than 8.4 and much better than the last beta 9 beta 1 I tried.


    I am going to stick with it as my daily. No crashes or anything yet but it did seem to be warm for the first 20 minutes after install. I then disabled all spotlight stuff as I never use it and it's pretty smooth now.

    How is iOS 9 on the iPad 2?
    My iPad is so bad with ios 8 it's almost unusable.
    It's a 64g with 3G.
    My apps take 2-3 seconds to minimize some times. As well as apps being very slow.
