    • 3D Touch cursor works intermittently on keyboard
    • (Recurring) Calculator operator buttons lag. e.g. quickly tap 1 + 2 + 3. It will come out as 1 + 23 because the + is still disabled after its first tap.

    It had been released at least four minutes earlier than usual, that was the time when I checked for an update.

    I'm guessing that's the Spaceship Campus in the upper right off 280?

    Also looks like the App Store icon is new from your photo.

    Looks like the App Store icon is tweaked as well. And not for the better.

    New app store logo too?

    Or maybe I just didn't notice it before.

    App store icon is correct in Settings now too. And Done/back and forward icons are no longer overlapping into the status bar when editing a screen shot taken in an app (aka not the homescreen).
