    Is anyone else running Public Beta 3 and not able to swipe to answer phone calls from the lock screen?

    No concerns here. Have not seen or heard of this issue.

    Pressing the home button does not answer the phone, I tried.

    my bad - for some reason the "answer the phone" part did not register

    Am on iOS 10 beta 3 and yes it does swipe to answer the call.

    Maybe reboot the phone ?

    Sounds like an occasional glitch that has been around for various people/devices here and there since at least iOS 7 days.

    I have not had that glitch - but there does seem to be some funky stuff going on with the phone on iOS10

    I have finished a call and no way to end the call - just have to wait until the other party does.

    Also - using headphones - no answers - like being on mute? - calling and ppl hangup - they can't hear you?

    Rebooting fixes most of these things for my phone - but it seems they come back?

    Beta issues - hopefully to be fixed.

    this happened to me on dev beta 3 as well. but ONLY when i was using the phone in my car, listening to music via BT and the screen lightly dimmed but not completely off. it hasn't happened since.

    This is happening over 50% of the time for on Beta 4. Super annoying, and no, rebooting does not seem to help

    Yeah, it doesn't happen all the time. I would agree its about 50% of the time.

    I've noticed if I swipe and keep trying, eventually I can answer. It is super annoying there isn't another button to answer as a backup method.

    This glitch is present since iOS 8. It happens all the time irrespective of iPhone model or iOS version.

    My way out of this annoyance is to press volume up/down button. This mutes the call. But "Swipe to answer" becomes responsive again.

    Well, not quite "all the time".

    I had to downgrade back to 9.3.4. Problem solved. I didn't realize how many phone calls I actually received until I couldn't answer any of them!

    One call (on PB3) did this to me. Swipe swipe swipe and nothing. A call later in the day seemed fine. But only 2 calls since installing beta is not very helpful data. I rarely talk on phone and at times I would like to be able to say it was my phone that would not answer . . . but that is probably not their goal. :)

    yes.
    it only happens if i have touch ID enabled, and if i have unread notifications on the lock screen.
    super annoying
