I noticed when I rotate the phone from landscape to portrait and back again several times my dock becomes corrupted. Often showing icons behind the dock icons or just flickering. I can only get a screenshot in landscape mode to show the problem. Screenshot in portrait mode just shows a black background and not the actual flickering or other visual defects. Anyone else experience this defect?

This is on an Iphone 6s Plus model.

I submitted the feedback through the app so hopefully they will look into the issue.

Reset the device and lock the device in portrait mode until the next beta :)

Funny thing is that I actually don't like the screen rotation on my homescreen anyway. But I do like it when I am in apps or photo library. I wish there was a way to lock it just for the homescreen.

There are more glitches like this in DP5 than any previous beta. Must be some pretty big change in the engine.

This works until you use apps that only work in landscape. Once I closed the app my dock went crazy again. It's frustrating that this bug made it through internal testing when it's so easy to replicate and affects so many different iOS devices.

Mines a little bit different, see pictures attached. It's the background solid colour that gets all messed up when I turn my device right to left:

I've just sent in feedback for it. This just started on Public Beta 4 on my device.

Did anyone try a dfu restore to see if it fixes the issue? Edit: turning off perspective wallpaper fixes the issue, as said by another member. Edit: No, its back again!

They really need to get rid of the solid background for a dock. It looks horrendous and ruins wallpapers.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Hopefully, everyone is submitting the issue to Apple so they will become aware of the problem. I have also experienced the issue where the dock background just disappears. Mine was not just partial. Rather the whole dock background disappeared making it look like it was transparent. Then the icons started getting all distorted.

Happened to me and as soon as you put them in wiggle mode and move them they do what happened to me

Agreed, I would love to be able to turn of the dock background and make the home screen uniform.
