    iOS 12.1.1 Beta 3 Release Note

    New Features & Changes
    New Issues
    Remaining Issues

    • After upgrading to iOS 12.1.1 beta, you might be unable to select the voice used for VoiceOver and other Speech products
    • 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. Video: Here
    • Lock screen lock disappears: Swipe on the lockscreen for a few times, after some time, your lock status will disappear. Video: Here. If you happen to reproduce it while your phone is unlocking, you will get something like this, the notifications will get glitched.
    • 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. Video: Here
    • Signal bars not updating on in car infotainment using either Bluetooth or CarPlay unless phone screen is on (XS and XS Max only, since iOS 12.0).
    Notification bugs:
    • Grouped notifications glitch - Expand, collapse and then expand again a grouped notification quickly, it will have a glitchy animation with DND. Video: Here
    • Notification Center bug: If you have a grouped notification in the notification center, make sure to delete till you have only one, then click the X next to the app and not the one next to "Notification Center". It will result in a glitch - Video: Here
    • 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.
    • If you have enough notifications to hide the time, then scroll down-up few times, the notifications will get glitched with the time. After you collapse the notifications, there will be a glitchy animation. Video: Here
    • 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
    • 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. Video: Here
    • 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. Video: Here
    • Adding the first widget in the available widgets list will have a glitchy animation. Video: Here
    • 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.
    • In Messages: using 3D Touch to Peak and Pop, or when rotating the screen orientation turns the iMessage app strip black (iPhone 7 only)
    • Sometimes, if you have no SIM inserted, you will see an old time to appear at the top of the screen. Video: Here
    • Opening app switcher in landscape mode will sometimes show old stuff that you did with the app before. Video: Here
    • On the home screen, scrolling to the second page, swiping up then holding the screen will cause the second page to disappear. Video: Here
    • Lockscreen blocking bug: Get to the passcode request page, then swipe up and down while not releasing the screen - this will cause the first line (1, 2, 3) to be unresponsive. Video: Here (I typed 1 to show that it was working)
    Resolved Issues
    • Fixed app switcher blur glitch
    Additional Notes
    • If you experience Setting crashes, it may be due to removal of stock apps.

    It's got a 1 in it, getting close!

    For real though, the "a" doesn't mean anything for us.

    We really need to sticky the epic post where the entire build nomenclature was broken out and explained. My understanding was that the "a" meant that this was the first (and only) rev of this build. While not necessarily meaning its ready for prime time, the thinking is that being able to release the first rev means that there is likely not much being done that would require multiple revs before a build is released. Is this not correct?

    Yeah sorta but also means that whatever change they made in this build worked on the first try good enough for QC to release it. But your theory could mean they are making fewer changes overall and thus are closer to a final product.

    That is what that means, yes. However, you can have several builds that have an "a" designation without ever getting a GM. It just means that a) The build compiled successfully, and b) They were satisfied with internal testing that nothing was super broken. A build that compiles successfully and passes internal QA doesn't mean more than that.

    The best tool that people outside of the company have to gauge how far along Apple is is the size of the OTA download. It's a delta update, so the bigger the OTA, the more changes. The smaller the OTA, fewer changes. As development on a release winds down, you'll usually see smaller OTAs since they aren't committing as many changes.

    That said, even the OTA download size isn't necessarily a great predictor. We've had betas before where we get several <75MB OTAs before GM, and we've had betas where we're still seeing >100MB OTAs before GM.

    If none of the SEVERAL bug fixes we have compiled are fixed it’s going to be pretty unfortunate.

    7 builds ahead of the last beta, and as noted above 'a' revision, basically just means they are getting a good build to pass sooner. Being a small beta anyways, my guess is this is the last beta

    Kernel is new as of three days ago, so I'm expecting another build. You usually see the kernel stagnate toward the end of a releases beta cycle.

    Shortcuts App still crashes on launch.
    Dock apps are still unresponsive for ~1 sec when fast navigating between homescreen pages.
    USER_LABEL_PRIMARY still appears in General->About.
    Screen Time still shows disconnected/no longer owned devices.
    Screen Time still shows uninstalled apps.

    Have no idea what Apple is fixing in these Betas.

    Sounds like you need a fresh install. I don’t have any of those problems.

    I don’t have a single issue you are having. Starting from scratch would be a good idea for you!!!

    Shortcuts app crashing is reported by others in app store, also on reddit.
    Google USER_LABEL_PRIMARY.
    Screen Time issue is in another thread on MR as well.

    I've reinstalled in recovery mode a few times, doesn't fix anything.
    All of this started to happen after 12.1 (I avoid betas after 12.0 until 12.1.1).
