  • 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. Video: Here
  • 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. Video: Here

Resolved Issues
  • 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.

gizbug has nothing better to do than troll, same old, just ignore his posts.

Downloading the beta now!
Not trolling.
But a) people don’t care to scroll through pages of posts saying downloading now .. WHO cares and b) advertising posts for their phones...

Share something relevant with regards to the beta. That’s when you finishing downloading as you mentioned!
