    After a couple of hours with iOS9 Beta I've decided I'd like to go back to iOS 8.4

    I do love iOS 9 at the moment and its a bit glitchy as expected, but all my Health Kit data app isn't really responding well which I do use quite a bit.

    I also had the issue with the iPhone getting quite hot when it was charging last night, whilst using my sleep cycle app it went from 10% - 57% in a space of 7 hours which made me a bit concerned about it. I did try to restore from back up but for some reason its still loaded iOS 9.

    So it looks like I might have to do a complete restore to new, then download the rest from the iCloud, which wont be fun to say the least...

    Yep, i went back last night.

    I thought Beta 2 was great but Beta 3 just annoyed me too much for it to be kept on my phone.

    yeah I'm going to do the same tonight I hope, although as I said I done that this morning and it still loaded iOS9 and not my back up of 8.4.

    Just finished a restore back to 8.4. Yeah iOS 9 doesn't feel like it's ready to go yet by any means. Hope my update to Mac OS X El Capitan fares better tomorrow.

    Can't decide. On the fence, I get a lot of app stutters and sometimes the keyboard just disappears. But at the same time, i'm digging all the new features. Then again I can easily get these features with 8.4 JB. THEN AGAIN, I didn't back up before updating and theres no way of restoring my SMS/iMessages. DILEMMAS HAHAH.

    To be fair I knew it would be buggy, its what I'd expect from a beta but like I said its messed a few things around like Health Kit and the battery getting hot, it just didn't feel comfortable.

    Yep. Gone back on my iPhone 5S and will be reverting my iPad 4 tonight. iOS 9 PB left me with no notifications whatsoever on both devices, despite numerous reboots, resets, toggling on and off. It ran hot, killed my iCloud backups. Not good.

    El Capitan however is buttery smooth and incredibly solid...

    I think its going to take about an hour to get my iPhone back to how I actually backed up my iPhone, even though iTunes begs to differ. I was thinking about El Capitan but after iOS 9 little bit nervous...

    Nope. I'm very satisfied with iOS 9 at the moment. A few bugs are present, but nowhere near enough to make me downgrade. I'd like to see what later betas will yield to us.

    If I want to go back to 8.4. I guess I have to reset phone to factory setting and then restore from my backup?

    I honestly don't see anything great about 9. Nothing really new.

    Took me about 3 hours, first sync my apps, then sync over 3000 pics & vids and lastly over 70GB's of music that i pick and chose from about a 100GB of music. Got all my wifes **** in my iTunes too so i dont want all that otherwise it'd be much quicker.

    Are there really this many people that installed the beta and didn't archive a backup through iTunes?

    Set up a playlist with just your music in it. Then instead of syncing all music, just select your playlist to sync.

    Well I thought that and I'm probably wrong but I thought that you downloaded iOS 9 beta, then if you want to downgrade, you just restore from backup that you done before upgrading to iOS 9 beta, I done that this morning and it didn't work it still gave me iOS9 as the default iOS even though I backed up before I download iOS 9.

    Luckily I have iTunes Match and AP so the music side is fine, its just all the photo's and apps and making sure nothing else is missing or needs to be changed. just perfecting it back to before can normally take the longest.

    @Bluejelly. Same here. It still kept 9 on phone. Sucks. We have to do a full restore to get back.

    You were supposed to do the backup in iTunes and then archive it so that new backups didnt overwrite then iOS 8.4 backup.

    I did that. I have only 1 backup saved on my computer and it was 8.4 but when I go back to restore from that the os9 stays on phone.

    You have to get the 8.4 .ipsw and restore to that. Then restore your backup.

    I did the back up at 8.4 then downloaded iOS 9 I never did a backup with iOS 9.

    So the only version on my MBP was last night 8.4 before the download. I had no reason to archive it
