Been driving me mad all week.

A few times an hour, when you type in a url, or click a bookmark, safari will just “hang” and not load the new page. Sometimes you get a white page, sometimes you get stuck on the previous page.

However, if you go to a different app, then back to safari, the page is loaded !

I’ve reset my phone, cleared safari cache. Also confirmed it’s not a DNS or internal network issue

Glad to see that Im not the only one noticing this issue, this started after iOS 16, but is especially noticable on iOS 16.2 beta 1. But in my case everything loads more slowly than on iOS 15, might be iOS 16.2 beta 1 newer modem/carrier firmware causing this too.

When I run a speedtest it gives me 450mbps download on 5G, so its not my internet.

Also, safari is destroying my battery life.
