    I know it's around a month until the Public Beta comes out, but would you guys agree that it's safe and stable enough to use as a daily driver?

    Would the public beta version be the same in terms of features as the developer one? I would assume only the revision is different.

    I stick myself into developer test path. What I can guess is public beta has the same feature with the same develop beta released at the same time.

    For this beta 1, you know, Apple will do it much better in the next beta version. But, once beta version is stable enough for daily use, you can use it as the daily driver.
    I have immediately updated my iPhone 6 Plus daily driver to the beta 1 of iOS 9, and the old iPad mini. To be honest, they works good, but beta 1 is really laggy on iPad mini.

    Ironically, Apple beta software, especially recent beta software, such as iOS 8.4, is stable enough. And, continuity in iOS 8.4 beta works great, while in iOS 8.3 nothing works correctly, in my iPad mini and iPhone 6 Plus.

    No one can possibly "agree" that a Beta version of an OS that no one has used and won't be out for a month will be stable enough to use on a daily driver. We won't know until it is released and people have tried it out. I am running iOS 8.4 Beta 3 and it is pretty solid and doesn't crash and respring like the release version of 8.3 did. But before I installed it I read the comments to see what issues people had to see if it was worth it.

    This beta is working pretty dang good. Battery life could be better but that's expected to take a hit until it's fully optimized. But, overall, I'd recommend it.

    It will be up to the individual. And without really knowing what the particular public beta will be like no one can really answer the question aside from just guessing/hoping one way or another.
