If you're a network nerd that uses Field Test Mode, don't update to iOS 11 Beta on a Qualcomm device

    For reference, this is on devices with the Qualcomm modem.

    iOS 11.0 Beta 1 removed the dbm meter in field test mode.
    iOS 11.0 Beta 2 removes the ability to use field test mode altogether on Qualcomm devices. It just goes a nonstop "Connecting" loop now.

    Just curious if Apple messed up the Intel Field test mode as well?
    Was hoping to jump on the public beta when ever they are released but might not now if the Intel one is messed up as well.

    *iOS 11 BETA is what the title should be. Also do we need a new thread for each beta?

    Intel Field Test Mode is still in beta 2.

    Perhaps the removal is a sign that Apple is adding Qualcomm support to superior Intel Field Test Mode app.

    Intel got fixed in iOS 10.3 IIRC. Apple is going backwards with Qualcomm field test mode now.
    Your theory is wishful thinking. My theory is that with the current issues between Apple and Qualcomm, Apple will move heavily towards Intel modems on all of their devices.
