    According to Ars Technica, betas for the general public for both iOS 9 and El Capitan should be available to any user with an Apple ID interested in installing them.

    You can sign up for the public beta here. You'll be given a configuration profile to install, which will enable your phone or tablet to grab the iOS 9 OTA just as it would see a standard iOS 8 update. New public beta builds should follow every few weeks, and you should be able to upgrade from the iOS 9 beta directly to the "Golden Master" build of the OS on release day without wiping your device.

    I'm downloading and installing it now. Actually for the past 2-3 hours. It's still in process.

    Not sure then for my case, but I do know that Apple beta website was very slow. :p

    I haven't dived into the new OS yet very much, but I love the swipe for mail to mark as read and to delete. Also, the beachball loader...and the updated spotlight to show you much more, and to understand sentences.

    I've also jumped on the El Capitan train and right away, it's more responsive than Yosemite. I've yet to play around with all the new features.

    With the public beta 2, has anyone else noticed an extreme battery drainage?

    The third Public Beta of OS X El Capitan has now been released by Apple.

    No word yet on a third Public Beta of iOS 9.

    For you does it show in App Store you installed beta 3? For me it doesn't. These updates for me have been odd and I have to reinstall the original then the 3rd or whatnot.

    I'm on Yosemite. I haven't worked up the courage to install El Capitan betas yet—and I may just end up waiting for the real thing in the fall. It's not too far away.

    Oh ok. My App Store now tells me I installed public beta 3. As far as what you said, I just like being on beta. I feel empowered. :ROFLMAO:

    I just like having a sneak peek before anyone else. That is why I install beta software.

    I think this is where I put my foot in the mouth. It's not always great to have the most current version of software. After using El Capitan for a week, I started to experience several issues from compatibility issues to the system reporting that it was always busy. The all too famous wheel would not stop spinning with any operation, so as a last resort I reverted to Yosemite using a Yosemite install drive and Disk Utility to erase the partition and install Yosemite. I'm going to wait for the release of El Capitan in September. That is enough beta testing for now.

    I've had a few rainbow wheel issues, but it didn't continue for long. Once was when I would open notification center, but all has been fine besides a few slowdowns.

    Mine continued for hours... to the point where I could not get anything done. That's where I draw the line.

    I agree. For me it's not terrible, but last night I did have to put computer to sleep and log back in.
