That's definitely good to hear. I really want to install the PB (once it's released) on my DD iPhone Xs. But I'm very hesitant to pull the trigger since I use my phone for work (BlackBerry Work app). So I suspect the app will be unusable if I were to install the PB.

Everything seems to be working fine for me as well on Beta 2 using on xS Max however whatsapp seems to not refresh by itself. Need to open the again that’s the time it fetches data - Anyone else facing similar issue ? Or any tips to fix it ? Checked in settings App Refresh is on. Anything else if I need to do - Please advise. TIA.

Gets a little warm with me - but we will see how that shakes out.
For what it’s worth, on my iPad, that is improved ten folds compared to beta 1. My battery lasted 4-5 hours and the screen was very warm almost all the time. Right now I’m at 56% and have used it about 5-6 hours. So i’m Sure you’ll be fine With beta 2.

Seems like this is a problem for Whatsapp web. On my phone it works fine but Whatsapp web stops working if I don’t leave Whatsapp open

On my Air 2, app switcher is extremely buggy. Slideover apps are almost impossible to dismiss, and it often locks up so much I can't access multitasking or Home screen at all and need to reboot.

Using it on my X and it’s not too bad. WhatsApp is a bit buggy, and it often crashes/freezes when changing wallpaper in Settings. Other than that it’s pretty solid.

WhatsApp is definitely buggy. It’s a known issue.

I installed Beta2 on my iPhone X and so far no issues. Still feeling things out but so far with what I have been using I have not noticed anything buggy like I did using Beta1.

I’m facing another issue starting today - None of the apps updating from App Store ... It jus says waiting on all the apps and none updating. Tried restarting the device and again putting it for update - No Go. And it’s jus circling on App Store as well.

It did the same for me but the apps updated in the end.

I am having more serious VoLTE reliability issues.

Same with me. BlackBerry Work will open and update on my iPad running beta 2 but crashes every time after about 30 seconds. Holding off on my iPhone until I can see it working on iPad.

It’s smooth, but still has it’s quirks and bugs of course for a beta 2. Not all apps are working properly, as expected. I wouldn’t recommend using it as your daily driver unless you’re willing to put up with the bugs, like I am lol.

I put it on my XS Max and it is running pretty smoothly so far. A few little quirks so far..but nothing earth shattering!

Weird. I just updated apps twice today, no issue at all, either under wifi or cellular.

What’sApp has this double notification going on. Beta 2 is a blessing I tell you. For my iPad Pro I cant seem to get the side widget back on the home screen. Anyone has had this issue yet?
