It’s far to state that at this point the fun and enjoyment of WWDC has died down for the majority of people, other than maybe for developers who are now working their method through the mountanis of videos and tutorials that Apple published online. Beyond that though, there is the little matter of a round of beta releases, the second which occurred this previous Tuesday.
Of specific interest to most, if just due to the larger install base when compared with its brethren, is iOS 9. Now beyond that always difficult very first beta, iOS 9 beta 2 seeks to take exactly what the very first beta needed to provide and after that improve it while straightening out a few of the bugs and problems that it presented.
I’ve been making use of iOS 9 beta 2 on my iPhone 6 for a couple of days now, as I had the first beta before it, as well as after just 2 Days, I can inform that I’m going to enjoy the next two weeks a lot more than the last.
Without a doubt the greatest concern I had with the first beta release of iOS 9 was the hideous battery life that saw me having to use a battery pack in order to get through a couple of hours. I had not been alone either, so it’s clear that Apple had some sort of logging turned all the way up, or there was some bug with the power management side of things. Or it was simply one of those odd problems that crops up with early betas. Who knows?
Whatever the cause, I’m seeing battery life with iOS 9 beta 2 that is above and beyond exactly what I was experiencing with beta 1. That’s not necessarily indicitive of exactly what the remainder of the betas, and even the final release will be like, but it’s an excellent start.

Beyond the battery life, iOS 9 beta 2 feels quicker to launch apps and switch between them, and taps are registered in a more stylish manner as well. All in all the thing feels far more solid for want of a better word, though that may be more to the state the very first beta remained in than the 2nd being particularly excellent.
At this point, iOS 9 is coming along well, and while I still wouldn’t wish to advise that anybody rush out and install it on their every day device, I do not seem like I require to babysit it as much as I did prior to Tuesday’s second beta.
If you do choose to install iOS 9 beta 2 though, I’m extremely confident you won’t have a lot of problems beyond the odd app crash or failure to load. It is still a beta after all.
