Every year I upgrade my iPad to public beta and leave my iPhone on the stable update. There's always bugs but I just let them iron themselves out with the usually frequent updates, reporting where I can and trying to help out (isn't that what a public beta is all about?) Usually once the majority are squashed, late August time - I upgrade my iPhone too. The iPhone then stays on PB til the new phone comes out and the cycle is complete. I get to play with the flashy new stuff early on and there's little/no risk to my phone which I rely on for work etc etc etc Anyway, this year there seems to be more people than ever requesting downgrade instructions etc, even on iPads/secondary devices? Is it that bad? Surely on an iPad you can just wait for the next release to roll out? Mine is backing up now in preparation but seeing these forums is stopping me from biting the bullet. What shall I do? Was particularly excited this year given the iPad focus!
