    It's only a few more days until we should see the sixth beta of iOS 9 (assuming it will be released on the 2 week schedule, same as the last build), and I'm getting pretty excited! What do you think will be added or updated in the new build? What do you hope to see fixed in terms of bugs or glitches? And will you be installing it as the daily driver on your phone?

    I will be re-installing the Developer Previews as soon as I release my game on the App Store!!! :)
    I'm using my iPhone as a development phone, and realized I couldn't get the real sensation of my game under iOS 9.

    So far, I feel Beta 4 has been the best on the iPhone and Beta 5 has been the best on the Watch. Hopefully Beta 6 comes out this week with some fixes and more dynamic wallpapers!

    Most of the bugs have been gone since the last build (DP 5 and PB 3.) So DP 6 and PB 4 will probably be mostly optimizations on performance.

    For the one day I tried the latest beta, it wasn't buggy at all, but it was VERY choppy on my 6 Plus and often unresponsive at times. That alone made me want to go back iOS 8.4.1 or my Galaxy S6.

    Still waiting for them to sort that multiple search area mess out... So weird.

    Wouldn't all the Siri suggestions content be better situated in Notification Center!? Doesn't feel right awkwardly placed under the spotlight search! Or one of them should I say lol.

    I'd like to be able to use my phone more than four hours.

    Beta 5 is probably the last one we will see before the iPhone keynote.

    Not necessarily, six seems to be the average number of betas by now.

    And at the same time most later betas don't seem to come every 2 weeks either.

    The 6 plus won't get any better than it was on 8.4. You can call it the iPad 3-equivalent of the iPhones.

    It depends on how much of a stability and performance improvement of a release iOS 9 really turns out to be.

    Beta 5 is horrible when it comes to battery life on my 5S.

    Battery drains just by looking at the screen.

    You'll be waiting a long time. The last beta normally takes three or even four weeks. I'm guessing next Tuesday.

    Beta 5 has been great on my phone and watch so far. I don't have anything that stands out at the moment making me wish for another beta. If the next releases mean efficiency or speed I will certainly welcome them but today, I am happy.

    There needs to be a beta 6.
    But we could easily be on the last long beta cycle before the keynote GM.

    Well, I hope beta 6 maybe adds WiFi calling for Rogers in Canada, but as a Rogers customer and a Canadian.. We get shafted on almost everything.

    Beta 5 is nearly perfect, so maybe we'll see GM instead today!

    I think beta 6, the final beta, will come out next week.

    There is a 5 week interval between last beta and GM since the keynote moved to September (or October for iOS 5 and iPhone 4s). Based on this fact, I think that beta 5 was the last beta before iOS 9 GM.

    Please note that iOS 7 beta 5 was planned to be the last beta before GM.
