    New Features & Changes
    New Issues
    • OTA says iOS 12 but installs iOS 12.1 (don't be alarmed for beta users)
    • Some Text Replacements are not working
    Remaining Issues
    • Lock screen orientation glitch in the Control Center: If you have screen orientation lock enabled, and then change the state of "Increase Contrast" in Settings, for example enable it, your lock orientation icon will be fully white instead of red.
    • Some apps like Google Maps and Clash Royale will lag on iPhone X and above: Open the affected app, for example Google Maps. Do not do anything else, just minimize your brightness to the lowest. Now, you will see the app's FPS number has been drastically decreased, try to do circles in the map, you will see it is laggy. To make it smooth again, you can: A) Start screen recording or B) Increase brightness.
    • Folder in Dock bug - swipe to widgets and then back to home screen: it will blink.
    • Grouped notifications glitch - Expand, collapse and then expand again a grouped notification quickly, it will have a glitchy animation.
    • Text in the home bar in apps such as WhatsApp, FB Messenger and MyFitness Pal will glitch when swiping between screens causing the text to become closer together
    • On an iPhone X, XS, and XS Max, if your home screen have multiple pages, go to a different page other than main, then swipe up to get to your main page. After you quickly want to open anything in the Dock, you can't, you need to wait a few seconds to be able to do it.
    • Lock screen time & lock status glitch: using your locked iPhone, swipe from right to left two times quickly. For the second swipe, your time and lock status will disappear.
    • Notification center missing background: Lock and unlock your phone. Then open an app, and quickly pull down the notification center. It won't have background for a few seconds.
    • Landscape mode control center bug: Open anything in landscape mode, for example a YouTube video in full screen. Open your Control Center, swipe from right to left, then close CC. There will be a stuck bar at the top of your screen for a few seconds.
    • App crash bug: Open the app switcher. Tap on an app, swipe it up to close, but while its closing tap on it - > glitchy crash.
    • Adding the first widget in the available widgets list will have a glitchy animation.
    • Safari: "add to home screen" - when there is just one home screen, it does not show the recently added icon. It does create a 2nd home screen page but when you swipe left the icon is missing. After a reboot or waiting for several minutes, the icon may appear.
    • Since iOS 11.4 still can’t initiate ‘album’ playback via Siri on the watch with music that is locally stored on phone.
    • When iCloud Keychain and text replacements are enabled, text replacement won’t be offered anymore when trying to login. The specific text replacement is overwritten with “Password”.
    • iMessage app sort order resets after a period of time from custom order to default order.
    • When tapping the “i” button for info in a message thread of someone who you share your location with (or vice versa) the photos are very glitchy to load and you always get sent to the bottom of the list after trying to scroll up.

    Such a weird build number compared to the beta, can't tell how many builds ahead it is

    Edit: does it drop the 50? if so, that makes sense, went from 89 to 92/93

    Guessing we'll need to delete our Beta profile before we can update to the final build?

    Violates human rules. Bots are fast. Humans have a life and are slow.
