    Is this on iOS 12 beta or the current production release?

    I wonder if that’s their thinking about all the LTE issues? Which is a bit strange given a lot of carriers didn’t support this at launch? At least given I’ve been having horrible LTE issues since launch.

    I saw on Reddit someone talked about speaking to their carrier about having their physical SIM deactivated and their existing account set to use the eSIM and reported better performance. However again, I’m a bit skeptical and wanted to hear more before thinking about trying it.

    Regardless, I had sent apple another set of logs before Christmas. This is now the 5th round of files. The senior advisor said the usual about how she will share with engineering and get back to me. Given the holidays I’ll follow up again in a week. But I’ve been down this road before and they’ve never been able to provide any information besides a generic “thanks we are looking into it.”

    What network are you on?

    I’m on EE and have been on physical sim -> eSim -> back to physical sim and haven’t had a single call failure since I bought the Xs in October.

    I'm skeptical about these reports, too.

    I think (personally) what is really happening is that people are watching an eSIM and a physical SIM on the same carrier, and forgetting that the two different cellular plans might very well lock onto different bands even though they are the same carrier.

    There are no changes in the beta but it’s working better on my XS Max than the 12.1.2

    YEs, been having the same thing on final builds and all betas, haven't tried this beta yet, on the last one. but see here! It's an issue and if you're a power user you really notice it. I'm telling you, multiple sites crawl on wifi, and as soon as you turn wifi off, they fly super fast.

    Which iphones had which models for wifi? I always wonder if later versions of the same phone if apple changes stuff and doesn't tell you,. Like how can they make the same phone for years, say a 6s, and never change any components or manufacturers inside that could effect stuff?

    Battery life is great. 1:05 hours usage. Sent some feedbacks, Bluetooth is on. Watched some YouTube clips. Still 94% battery.

    Occasionally. But I haven't been able to trace it to a particular app or activity aside from just using Messages normally.

    It is always while using Messages.

    Any ideas?

    It's only occasional, just a couple of times/day for me.

    I have an eSIM and a physical SIM active all the time. Do you?

    These are the accessibility switches I have:

    Auto Brightness.
    Reduce Motion.
    Button Shapes.
    Reachability.
    Shake to Undo.
    Vibration.
    Phone Noise Cancellation.

    By any chance, are yours set the same?

    I have a bug in my Xs with the 12.1.3 beta but I'm pretty sure it was already present in 12.1:

    Sometimes when I open Settings or the App Store (as fare as I know this doesn't happen with other apps, stock or not), the app freezes for a few seconds (I can't do anything except swiping up to go back to the homescreen) and then starts working. And once in a while I have to kill the app in order to get it working fine again.

    As someone experienced that too?

    XS Verizon USA iOS 12.1.3.B2

    Using OpenSignal I have started comparing OpenSignal’s Compare Performance versus what I am getting on speed tests.

    The verdict: at or above OpenSignal values.

    Downloads are typically higher than OpenSignal if not double.

    Uploads are typically the same (ball park) but can be higher.

    I’m happy.

    I'm not 100% sure if it started with 12.1.3b2 but I'm not getting any incoming text/imessage alerts. It's like I'm on DND but I'm definitely not. I've also tried the "hide alerts" setting for individual conversations, but these are off. This is also happening for new texts (like 2-step verification texts). I've restarted my phone, volume is up, I've done a hard reset... no dice.

    Check under iMessages in Settings>Notifications. You may have muted them inadvertently.

    Having the same issue. Checked settings>Notifications, DND, etc. Was receiving notifications up until yesterday, I believe. IPXS, 12.1.3 b2. Hmm, odd. I noticed it yesterday because myself and my wife were included in a messaging group - her phone and iPad were showing notifications and they "dinged". My IPXS did receive the same texts, but no notifications or sound.

    I’m also starting to not get vibration alerts. Weird!! On latest beta, IPXSM.

    Sending in report.

    Update: after sending report, restarted phone again and started getting alerts. Really weird.

    Not sure if it’s the phone (iPhone XS Max) or iOS 12, but this has been the worst experience with this phone.

    I’m getting “no connection” errors when I’m actually connected. I have slow and weak cell connections. WiFi drops intermittently. Alerts are spotty. Apps start to get jittery, requiring phone restart.

    Check this setting on your phone. It happens to my wifey’s phone, IPXS Max.

    Go to Setting>>Sounds>>Ringer Alerts (adjust sound level ) >> Chance With Buttons (slide to ON).

    That just allows to change the ringer sound with buttons vs. doing it in settings, but if the sound is up and it's not making a sound that won't really change things.
