I have it on my air 2 and while it is "ok", I am looking forward to beta 2 given the issues.

It's still a beta, and the first one of a major new version, and will have issues simply because of that, no matter what the device is.

Mine gets hot on small tasks and the battery drain is quite noticeable.
There are some issues regarding orientation and some apps not working.

So it is useable, but I do hope the next beta will address some of the stability issues.

Gets hot in one spot fast. Facetime video doesn't always work. Buggy on nearly every app. Reboots too. Some apps fail to launch. Useable on the whole. Running on air 2.

I had it for a couple of days on my Air 2. Battery drained more quickly, but not terribly so.

But I went back to 8.3 because I couldn't post a photo to Facebook in the photos app, couldn't search my email, and my NY Times feed in the Pulse app crashed the app. No idea why. Macrumors feed crashed it too sometimes.

I also found myself missing swipe forward in Safari, which appears to be completely gone in lieu of the split screen swipe.
