    This is great. They’re speeding up the beta releases which means official is right around the corner

    15E5216a the a at the end indicates that its not the final but they could totally just release this version and drop the a off right? Or are they for sure dropping another beta?

    That's a whole lot of remaining issues for a sixth beta. Jeez. I was hoping that by this point, it would be stable enough to install. I guess we have multiple betas left.

    pretty sure it's just copied over from the last thread until people have a chance to verify what is fixed vs. remaining.

    I think so too, I'm downloading as we speak. Also, I want to restore my messages from a clean install before I can say anything about my issues with attachments in the wrong order and the incorrect storage size on my backup vs messages =)

    Beware what you read. Having checked most (some are features or settings that I don't use), I am simply not seeing the issues purportedly being reported by some and therefore placed on the issues list. My experience with iOS 11.3 beta 5 (and so far on beta 6) has been excellent on an iPhone X, 7 Plus and even on a lowly 6 (16 GB).

    I’ve found that with checking the iPhone storage on the X that if you go into it then back out and back into it again. It then works fine and doesn’t crash.

    However it doesn’t crash for me it just doesn’t populate the songs and videos etc.

    I am thinking of installing this on my X. How was battery on beta 5? I know beta 6 just came out but how does it seem after a couple hours? Just curious. I expect some drainage being a beta but usually wait until later betas to install and test.

    I had my X replaced last night due to it creaking and when I restored to beta 5, first none of my pictures showed up. Now, I have about 50 extraneous albums (that I didn't create), and the ones that I did, few of them actually have pictures in. I'm hoping beta 6 fixes this.

    Anybody seeing a blank page when launching Safari?

    Say you’re on Google, then close out Safari in the app switcher and launch Safari again, I get a blank page instead of Safari opening the last web page visited. It happens randomly. iPad Pro 10.5.

    Both my issues with messages in iCloud has not been fixed. I did a clean install and setup the phone as new.

    Attachments in messages are in the wrong order when doing a clean install of iOS and setup as a new phone.

    I’m comparing my messages and the included attachments on my test iPhone against the iPhone that I use every day. The attachments are still sorted in the wrong order.

    iCloud Messages problem. The information on the size of the messages in iCloud Storage does not match the size in iCloud Storage/Manage Storage/Messages/Conversations.

    My iCloud-backup without the messages to iCloud activated is 12 GB. Out of those 12 GB, 9 GB consists of my messages. If you look at screenshot 1, my backup has suddenly increased to 26,2 GB? In my opinion my backup should only be 12 even with the messages to iCloud activated. Or am I wrong?

    Also, in screenshot 2, the messages are now all of a sudden 14,2 GB? But when I go into iCloud/Manage Storage/Messages, the size of the conversations is 3,87 GB (screenshot 3)? This doesn’t make any sense.

    I have sent them bug-reports on both issues and but have not heard anything since I sent them sysdiagnose-files (they replied back). Should I wait or should I send a new case?
