    After i installed iOS 11.3 public beta 6 on my iPhone X the attention aware features (dimming the display and lowering the volume display) stopped working. Is it a glitch in the software update? because when i downgraded to IOS 11.2.6 it worked again.

    Been using Adblock Plus ( free ) for years and never had a problem until tonight. It no longer blocks adds in safari on beta 6. Installed ka-block! And it’s working fine.

    Yes. Attention aware for calls does not work in the Beta for some reason, it does for Alarms though.

    I expect a official date of release with a beta 7/GM after the event.

    Another issue: the list of recently updated apps shows incorrect statuses. For some reason, some of the apps show "download from the cloud" icon while others show "update" (in small letters) even though all of them are already installed and up-to-date. Force refreshing the list fixes the issue - all apps have "OPEN" label next to them.

    This often happens when I manually check for updates right after switching from mobile connection to wifi (e.g. when entering my appt). The statuses are completely random - usually more apps are indicates as "to download" than to "update". Clicking on any of the buttons does nothing.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Then where the f**k is AirPlay 2?!

    The only reason I even installed the 11.3 beta's... /sigh

    They really need to use some of their cash to poach more software engineers from other companies and get their s**t together. They announced it on June 5th 2017 and should've been a feature of iOS 11.0 when it got released on Sept 19th 2017...
    We're more than six months after the original launchband almost 10 months after its announcement.

    This is getting ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous...

    It’s not livestreamed because the event is at a school and Apple has to follow their rules.

    I do agree we will not see a release version of iOS 11.3

    Airplay 2 was in beta 2. If you updated you lost it.

    Apple needed to focus their work on other issues first. Mostly those issues that the press keeps writing about.

    Why would you install a beta for a feature that didn’t work in the beta it was in?

    Why is this interesting? This is not uncommon. macOS needed another beta to finish up, public releases next week.

    News outlets know nothing. They assume events mean iOS.

    They could have launched the GM today. Interesting because new iPads come with iOS 11.3 mostly and they need to have it ready to install them on the new iPads.

    New iPad won’t come with 11.3. It’s still in beta. And the most recent build is not a GM. Just looking at the build number tells you this.

    I still think that the new iPad will come with iOS 11.3 installed. However only time will tell that.
    Normally new product is always launched with a new iOS version because the details would be otherwise leaked by looking into the code. Since nobody has found the reference of the new iPad in iOS 11.2.6, it would be safe to assume that it will be launched with iOS 11.3.
