    I mean it runs fairly well for a beta. I do, however, want to hear other opinion of iPad Air 2 users.

    If apps you use work fine I don't see any reason why you should not run it.
    I've been running it since the day it was released and some little glitches and bugs here there aside it's been very very stable, fast and has good battery life.

    Okay. What do you like most about it? Dislike? Also, what function(s) of the new OS do you use the most?

    So far I've really enjoyed the new San Francisco font. At first I thought it's uglier than Helvetica but now that I've done more reading etc. on my iPad I can definitely see the improvements this new font brings. It's more enjoyable to read stuff and browse the UI than before IMO. Other thing I really like are the shortcuts (up left corner) from one app to the other as you jump from app to the next. I use shortcuts frequently and miss them on my iPhone (still running 8.4).

    One of the special features that I use the most is probably Slide Over. Can't wait when developers are able integrate it into their apps. Split View is a very cool feature too but I rarely need to work with two apps side by side simultaneously. Slide Over gets used more in my workflow. This can obviously change in the future when all the apps have these capabilities.

    If it runs pretty good for you then no reason not to keep it. It will only get better as new builds come out. (We may see the next build as early as this Tuesday coming up in 2 days.)

    Really. ;) PB1 on my Air 2 runs as well or better than 8.x. I've had two crashes in the last week, one with Mail and one with News. Spit View works great. Can't think of any reason to go back to 8.4.

    If your not having any issues or problems don't downgrade. I have been loving iOS 9 on my Air 2 since beta 1.

    Well, for an iPad air 2 user, if I were you, I would IMMEDIATELY abandon iOS 8 and go ahead to iOS 9 from day 1.

    iOS 9 is in fact, an iPad OS 2 or 3. Or I can say this one is specially designed for iPad.

    If it runs fine for you and some others might have issues with it would that affect how it works for you and whether you would decide to keep it or not? Just curious.
