    This is so crazy-making.

    I use FaceTime a LOT to call my folks in England. Since upgrading to iOS 11 for the first time (PB5) on my iPhone 7 Plus, there are two pretty glaring issues.

    1.) FaceTime will no longer transition from Wi-Fi to LTE/3G. It just loses the call.

    2.) If you’re on a FaceTime call and a regular phone call comes in, your FaceTime call gets dumped.

    I really hope Apple is aware of this. Who even knows how this issue even came about..?

    Crazy? Why do you use beta as a daily driver?
    Don't complain here just report the bugs.

    I always wondered how they manage to break FaceTime with every major iOS update without actually adding any new features to it... This has been true for me since iOS 6 at least

    The entire point of a beta program is for folks to find issues such as this and report them to Apple using the Feedback app.

    Report the bugs to Apple and roll back to a release version and go about your day

    Apple appreciate your help in BETA-testing their PRE-PRODUCTION quality BETA, and are glad you didn't just install it on a device dedicated for development only.

    This kinds of PSA's by beta users are good and informative. There's a reason why Apple puts out public betas ... and for those of us considering using a public beta on our day to day phone, getting these kinds of tidbits can be instructive.

    I've been running iOS 11 on my 12.9 v2 iPP since PB3. Haven't pulled the trigger on my 7 Plus, though I'm considering it with this latest public beta.

    Judging by no response I would assume he did not report it.

    Using a beta as your daily driver is bad, m'kay?
