    I was hoping to give iOS 8.4 Beta 3 a try today on my iPhone 6 Plus. But before I do I want people's opinions if they think it's stable enough at the minute to use on my every day device along side an Apple Watch. Yes I do realize it's a beta and can have its problems but loads have it on already and wish to hear your opinions.

    Were you one of the people selected to take part in the Beta iOS program? If not unless you've bought a Developers License not sure you'll be able to get your hands on 8.4

    Works just fine. I really think the only major thing they are changing in 8.4 is the Music player, nothing else looks different and the Apple Watch functionality is, as far as I can tell, EXACTLY the same as 8.3, so if you want to run the beta, go for it.

    8.4B3 has been rock stable for me and the new music player is quite nice. I am pretty sure 8.4b3 is ALSO 8.4 public beta 1 so I think the first reply above is incorrect.

    Been ok. Every once in a while the Notification Center or controls won't slide. A soft reset fixes both problems.

    I'm getting my  Watch today! I was also wondering how battery life on the 6 Plus is with the 8.4 beta and watch?

    No issues between watch and phone so far.

    Otherwise. I have had some problems stopping a video but its beta software. It was no big deal and not every time but otherwise it has been pretty good.

    No problems really. The only minor annoyance is some tracks recently played on iTunes Radio show up in some Smart Playlists, but other then that I have had no problems with 8.4 Beta 3 and the Watch. (I was actually running 8.4 when I got my Watch).

    Haha. Good to know the beta hasn't broken the streak.

    Quite frequent with 8.2 but less frequent with 8.3
    It's not a new bug with 8.4 though, that's for sure.

    That's great to hear I think I'll give it a go then :). iTunes Radio I see mentioned above but in the UK we still don't get it :-(
