No problems running iOS 10 on my devices

I have an Apple Developer account, so I snagged the iOS 10 developer preview and installed it on my iPad Pro (12.9-inch) and my iPhone 6s Plus. The installs went well and iOS 10 has been running fine on both devices.

If you’re wondering if you should follow in my footsteps, I recommend holding off at least until Apple releases a public beta. And it’s always a good idea to only install betas on devices that you don’t rely on for daily use.

So far iOS 10 is working very well for me, but it’s still early and I may eventually run into some problems as each beta release is installed. So think carefully before you run off to get an Apple Developer account to install iOS 10.
