As of now I have reverted back to 7.1.2. For me, the actual iOS 8 beta 3 system seemed to run pretty well but a lot of the 3rd party apps that I hoped beta 3 would fix didn't. Beta 3 itself seemed pretty good but its 3rd party app compatibility wasn't.its too early to tell but from what I'm experiencing so far I'm staying on iOS 8
I have the same amount of tolerance and patience as you but in Beta 2 I couldn't even answer or make phone calls without the phone freezing. I drew the line there where basic phone doesn't even work correctly.Stayed one beta one, stayed on beta 2 and staying on beta 3.
Yes same her, i hope that beta4 will be ready to use as daily miss some of the ios8 featuresI reverted back to iOS 7 yesterday. iOS8 is way too buggy, and I had to keep resetting my iPhone like 4 times a day. But I really enjoyed the new iOS 8 features, I will miss them in the short period of time while I'm back on iOS 7!
I'm not sure if you can look at the iOS version for iCloud backups, but I'm pretty sure that every time you create a new iCloud backup from a device, the previous one is overwritten. One thing that I do in order to always ensure that I have a good backup for both iOS 7 and iOS 8 is that I use iTunes to create a local backup on my computer and then I take the backup from the folder that iTunes saves it to and I put in in my own folder for organizational purposes. Basically, I have two folders saved on my desktop: iOS 7.1.2 backup and iOS 8 beta 3 backup. Whenever I need to restore to a new iOS, I simply take the proper backup from the corresponding folder and COPY it (not click and drag) back into the folder where iTunes stores its backups. I highly recommend that other people use this method too because I have always been able to restore to the latest public release and still have a backup. Sorry if I'm a bit unclear in my method. If anyone is actually interested in this method of organizing backups, I would be happy to type out a full guide or something.I agree with the poster(s) who said that 3rd-party app compatibility isn't where they'd like it to be for iOS 8.
That said, I understand the process for reverting to iOS 7. Is there a way for me to look at the backups in iCloud and see if there's a copy of my iPhone on iOS 7 to use? I have never tried to look at that stuff.
