    And so it should be, this (the exchange bug) should never have slipped through the beta process.

    This is something apple could and should have tested internally. To release the final version with a bug like that, which will severely impact a large number of users for a primary use of their device (for actual work) is a major testing failure.

    Suppose they new about the issue but just didn't have the fix worked out and all wrapped up in a release to go out in time?

    Then they should have held off the release, and put out a security update for 10.x instead.

    Mail on the iphone and ipad is a major, major business use.

    Breaking people’s mail costs people real money in lost productivity.

    Now, i wasn’t impacted; but this, phone calls, imessage/sms and the camera should be the most tested parts of iOS. Releasing with a showstopper like that in any of those components is just really, really bad.

    It’s the equivalent to doing KFC drive through and being told they’re out of chicken...

    Suppose much more was involved in delaying the release (and perhaps spinning up some other iOS update) and some sort of risk analysis pointed to it being somehow worse off in one way or another?

    Still don’t release it.

    A huge number of people use iOS mail for work. This would have resulted in those people being unable to work.

    Well, seems like it all happened and despite the issue the blowback hasn't really reached some sort of significant levels. Perhaps the risk assessment (if there was one) was valid enough.

    Blowback or not, its just an illustration of Apple’s QA process being focused on the wrong things.

    It can very well not be QA that is at the heart of it if the issue was known and the decision to ahead was made higher up.

    Still a number of serious bugs

    1) Camera defaults to live photo on all the time despite settings showing live photo defaults to off...
    2) Still not possible to delete 0 byte cookies from safari. This is an really old bug. Impossible to remedy wo wiping your phone
    3) Not waking up unless you push the side button before using touch id...

    This is pre beta quality. Beta testers must have slept

    Interesting how many people aren't really experiencing all or even any of those (not to mention that some, like #2, hardly seem like anything even remotely "serious").

    2) This bug has been present for at least more than a year and has a long thread in the apple discussion forums.

    Btw, running Iphone 8, updated from iphone 7.... and 6 and 5s and whatnot. this installation has been upgraded and upgraded through the years. This might make it "buggy"?

    Not sure what would make it buggy, but it seems some people have some issues, while many don't or don't have the same ones.

    Maybe the Beta testers just whined about it on forums, rather than actually filing a bug report.

    My battery seems normal after the .0.1. The stuttering issue was probably the issue that made it eat battery.

    Thanks so much for the info, but alas it is on and I’ve never changed it.

    A huge number of people weren't affected. This only affected specific Exchange configurations. (In particular, it seems to be an incompatibility with how iOS 11 and Exchange implemented HTTP/2.)
