Top Reasons to Avoid iOS 9 Beta
Apple released the first beta version of the highly-anticipated operating system iOS 9 a few weeks back. It was made available for all iOS compatible devices, including iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, 5c, 5, 4S, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, Retina iPad mini, iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, and iPod touch 5g. This beta has been made available to the developers so that they can get accustomed to the new features and other things that come along with it. However, just like before, Apple has allowed regular users to get their hands on this beta as well, and it is very likely that they will pounce on this opportunity. We are here to advice you against it because there are a lot of problems with the beta version, some of which are outlined below.
App Compatibility Issues
iOS 9 is new so obviously there will be a lot of apps that wouldn’t be compatible with the latest iOS operating system. This is not your fault or the mistake of developers. It’s just that the iOS 9 is new and developers will need some time to get used to it. After that, they will be able to update their apps to work on the latest operating system. Keeping in mind that this is the first beta, so the compatibility will not be around just yet. The best thing to do right now is to wait until the full release and then move on to iOS 9 without much of a hassle.
The iOS you have right now runs without any major issues. However, the situation will take a turn for the worse as soon as you download the beta for iOS 9. Your phone will become noticeably sluggish, and will crash for no reason on regular basis. Since the operating system is in beta phase so these issues are to be expected, but why ruin your experience when you have got good thing going on. Wait for a while until most of the stuff is sorted out and more people have switched to iOS 9.
No Help for You
If you encounter any problem of any sort after updating to the latest operating system, then don’t expect any support whatsoever. You will not get any help from any developer or Apple employees because iOS 9 is under development and all the problems of the operating system will only be resolved through patch updates, which can take a while.
Lack of compatibility combined with a large number of bugs, and no support makes iOS 9’s beta a no-go area for all regular users of iOS. It is the first beta, which means that there will be issues. So instead of getting frustrated, the best course of action would be to just sit back, relax, and use the iOS version that is working smoothly without any problem. Just wait for a more stable version of iOS 9 to arrive before making the switch.
