    The captive page to accept terms or login to public WiFi takes awhile to show up on my Max but quicker on older device

    My shortcuts are working fine when I launch them manually since I don't use Siri.

    Yep. Same here. She doesn’t say the result.

    Anyone running this on a iPhone 8 experiencing their device heating up?

    It must really be smooth. :eek:

    After how long did you experience this? I have an 8, will report in some time. Also, let the device settle in for a while.

    EDIT: 20 minutes have passed, no heating issue here. Even played a game. You might be having a rogue app.

    Just recently, updated it this morning and it’s been sitting on my desk the entire day. After a little bit of usage (safari, reddit, snapchat) it felt quite warm to touch than normal. Will give it some more time to settle and see what happens

    I did not experience any heating issue in the 20 minutes I have spent with the phone since updating. Even playing a game did not heat it up. There must be some rogue app on the phone incompatible with some new code in beta 4.

    It’s still very slow at regaining signal between subway stops in NYC. Why would Apple even fix this if no one reports it? Exactly.

    On T-Mobile.

    In most cases it takes 5 mins to get a signal. For example while typing this I arrived at a Times Square stop, started walking to the 7 train and it took 4 minutes before I got signal. I mean come on.


    Reported.

    I’ve reported a lot since iOS 12.0 Beta 2 but mostly they don’t care. And the Network Problems with the newer iPhones are really annoying.

    I am having an occasional problem with streaming media, and I do not know if there is a way for iOS to address it. It might just be the way that networks operate, and that's the way it is.

    Situation:
    1. Most used cellular plan ("Primary") is on an eSIM, and this is the plan from which data is pulled by default.
    2. Secondary cellular plan is on a physical SIM, it is a Verizon MVNO and it is there only for those rare occasions way out somewhere that the T-Mobile primary plan does not have a signal. It's rare, but it happens.

    Problem: When using streaming media like Pandora or Amazon Music, the stream will suddenly stop. The head unit reports "No data" and it takes maybe as long as 30 seconds for the stream to start up again.

    If I turn off the physical SIM, or if I turn off LTE on the physical SIM, the eSIM can stream media consistently, without any problems at all.

    Running beautifully here on my XS as well. No complaints whatsoever.

    I think Apple might actually pull off this "iOS 12 is for stability" thing.

    This was rectified for me these past betas but on Verizon, and the engineering team had responded to my bug reports saying that there were specific fixes in place for this issue for Verizon. Keep submitting those reports, I eventually heard back.

    I'll be curious to know whether the rate of polling affects your battery life.

    This is happening on my XS running 12.1.2, so it isn’t isolated to the beta.

    Today I woke up at the same time of every other day and used my XS at work like every other day (which means not that much)... Usually when I leave work I have around 65% of battery, but today I was under 50% (like 48% or something like this).

    Too early to judge but it seams that beta 4 is worse in battery life than beta 3 for me...

    So far the last beta was solid for battery and this one seems on par as well.

    I don't live in NYC, but I've visited quite a few times and cellular service in the subway has always been extremely hit-or-miss.

    Did you have notably better performance at any point before? Subway stations are a really bad RF environment; even if the provider has antennas installed there's a lot of RF-reflective surfaces and heavy structural walls that can disrupt the signal.

    Not saying this isn't iOS's fault, just saying that expecting good cellular performance down there is QUITE a stretch. :)

    I have been having this problem as well since beta 2. Have submitted the bug several times now.
