    Ok since the question of "when" the next beta will hit always turns into a pissing match about who knows more about the release schedule let's shift to something perhaps a bit more fun.

    What to you think is likely to be addressed in the next beta (Beta 5)?

    My current thoughts are somewhat biased but I am guessing we will see performance improvements as they added some major animation lag and application launch delays with the last round of bug fixes.

    Another annoying thing I believe will be fixed is the keyboard randomly disappearing while typing.

    What are your thoughts?

    My opinion. If the next beta consists of just optimizations and bug fixes, there isn't going to be another beta.

    IDK about that... seems to be logical to continually perform optimizations to code and fix bugs. Right? hehehe

    From a feature stand point I believe most of the changes left will be related to small user interface modifications and Apple Watch functions. Which could be considered bug fixes. But one thing for sure Apple Watch OS 2 is still very broken with regards to maintaining a connection to the phone and also haptic feedback.

    Really? This is exactly what happens with the final 33% of Beta releases normally.

    People are getting way too excited. Just because the dev center is down (apparently for some) doesn't mean a new beta will be coming out.

    Apple can add beta's without taking the page offline.

    My bet is on Tuesday.

    Ok Guys, the likelihood of a new beta today is EXTREMELY LOW. Now back to the topic. What do you think the next beta will FIX or IMPROVE? ;)

    I just want them to fix the changing the notification sound issue.

    I have to have iOS 9 now because of my job (and I only have one device) and I'm really sick of my text tone.

    I'd like some new notification sounds, ringtones. Highly unlikely to see them, but no harm dreaming...

    The keyboard going away while I'm adding items to my reminders list (shopping list) is driving me nuts. I hope this is fixed sooner or later but I have had the problem for longer than iOS9. No idea why the keyboard continues to think I am done typing.

    I see it's out for devs on the portal but I was on PB and deleted the profile to get b4. Either they cleaned up that workaround or it's not out yet OTA

    OTA Always takes forever. I've been a registered Dev for years and it's always been hours before any of my devices pick up the OTA notification.
