    It's definitely a bug... and the workaround is to set up a keyboard text replacement string to convert "i" (lower case) to "I" (upper case).

    Has anyone experienced this? Unplug lightning headphones while audio is playing, and the audio continues to play. It’s supposed to stop once the headphones are removed. This is on iPhone 7 and playing podcast through Overcast app. Doesn’t seem to happen with other apps playing audio

    How did you come to the conclusion that removing the headphones from the device should cause the music to stop? If you remove headphones from a radio, does the music stop? Expecting the music to stop when you remove the headphones is illogical. The correct action, IMO, would be to continue playing the music over the built-in speaker.

    The correct action to stop the music from playing would be to use the playback controls to stop/pause the music playback.

    Because that’s how iPhones have behaved since, I don’t know, 2008? 11.2 dev beta 2 is the first time an iPhone has failed to stop the audio upon removing the headphones

    I've never experienced the behavior you're reporting as a problem. And hasn't iOS 11 in general taught you that "it always did it this way" doesn't apply? (I'm thinking of the Control Center Wi-Fi and BT controls).

    I didn't believe it, until I duplicated on my Iphone 6 going between Spotify and youtube. That is a very strange bug, indeed!

    Look dude I’m just asking if anyone has found this bug. It’s well known that this is how it has always worked. Here’s a thread from 2010.

    11.2 beta 2 would be a weird point for Apple to yank this feature, so i assume bug. Try it for yourself, if you have another device running beta 1 or earlier. Thanks for your incredibly constructive replies

    Just reconfigured HomeKit and it must be a bug with tvOS 11.2 beta 2. My iPhone X had beta 2 of iOS 11.2 on Friday and Remote access worked fine with tvOS 11.2 beta 1.

    Same here. I updated to beta 2 after restore from 7 Plus to X, but hoping new updates for beta don't pop up now that the profile is gone.

    Don't know why you're being so brash for something that's been there since I have known iPhones. I personally have loved the fact that taking the headphones off would stop the music playback, since my (first) iPhone 4s. I'd expect the behaviour to continue with lightning connector as well. If it doesn't with iOS 11.2, then this piques curiosity as to what is going on, and would, prima facie, appear to be a bug. What's so wrong with the poster's remarks that gets you so excited?

    And no, iOS 11 in general has not taught that "always like that" won't work any longer. It's not that iOS 11 is rewriting the entire alphabet and grammar.

    Ok, iBooks is annoying now. Worked great on iOS10.

    iOS11 - download books (only about 500mb worth). Randomly they will all disappear (even with 7GB free) weeks later.

    Is this happening to anyone else? I have done a fresh iBook install, fresh iOS11 install, same!

    I have reported to Apple.

    Hope they enable Apple Pay P2P and iCloud iMessages syncing... .2 release already and none of these features are enabled, don’t forget that they showed them as big features in iOS 11

    After updating iOS, it replaced my Proximus (Belgium) carrier settings profile with a wrong carrier settings profile (vtr 30.5.1, a carrier from Chile after looking it up). This causes my iPhone to report "No service" intermittently. I've already tried restoring network settings, removing sim, rebooting.

    When I go to Info in the, I get the alert that a carrier settings profile update is available, but tapping it does nothing.

    Any idea how to fix it without a full reset and reinstall?

    I've got the exact same issue, tried everything... except DFU as the iPhone X doesn't want too for some unclear reason. Guess we'll have to wait to a next version. Found the DFU... restoring now... let's see if it helps. (

    The stuttering has been around for a long time, whenever you encounter it or not depends on the apps you use. On my Pro 9.7 that's still running iOS 10.3 launching YouTube or Discord and then open the app switcher will cause it to stutter as long as the said app is visible.

    The weather widget issue is still occurring for me - weather app shows 34° for my location and the widget shows 39° and did all day yesterday.

    This is an install as new.

    My iPad Pro 9.7" is behaving a little weird since updating. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen no longer brings the dock into view. Four-finger gesture and double click home button brings me to dock and multi-tasking view however. Restarting the device fresh brings the functionality back as it always was but after half an hour of using, it's gone again. Again a restart and it works but it is always only temporary. Weird. Will report to Apple shortly.

    Hi, when updating from one IOS 11 beta to a higher beta, is it any point in doing a full restore and set up as a new phone, or just do the update OTA?

    Well this broke the slide up gesture to bring up the dock and multitasking on my iPad Pro. Works for a bit then randomly stop until i restart the device. And they still haven’t fixed the disappearing text entry/ keyboard in messages.
