Hi dan9700, could you give me a few more details please? I'm also in the UK on EE.
How do you find it better? In what ways? Thanks.

I noticed on iOS 12 release, that indoors in a shop and other areas, my 4G signal was worse, even dropping to 3G, when with my 6S Plus I never noticed that before on iOS 12.
So I was kinda thinking it was worse for 4G. I've not had any call drops yet but that means nothing really as I actually don't make a lot of calls anyway.
Thanks! Appreciate the info.

Yes, I switched from 7 to XS. No, haven't noticed any issues like that. Note that I used reading glasses with the iPhone 7, and still do with the XS.
And hopefully you won’t, this sucks. Will try what Banglazed suggested.

Anyone having an issue with a white horizontal line through the app tray after sending an iMessage or SMS? Seems too happen when you send a txt with a second line... been happening since 12.0. Thx

Is anyone's lock sound and keyboard click not working? Wasn't working for me in beta 2 either.

Is anyone else having issues with Wi-Fi calling on other devices? Like on my iPhone on beta 2 it wasn’t able to keep the feature enabled now that I’m on beta 3 it’s enabled but when I go into my Apple Watch Settings on (5.0.1) and try to enable the WiFi Calling it toggles right back off.
I've been having the same issue with my iPhone XS since 12.1 beta 2. iPhone stays connected on wifi calling but my iPad and MacBook do not show option for upgrading to wifi calling. I've tried resetting the network settings and also restoring the phone from iCloud. Nothing helps.

Screen much less warm since updating to 12.1 beta 3 on my XS Max. I see a few others have had similar results. Are we insane? Or did Apple address the issue in this beta?

Chiming in on the firmware front... iPhone XS on AT&T:

Modem: 1.01.27 (from 1.01.20-1)
Carrier: AT&T 34 (from AT&T 33.5.3)

My LTE speed tanked, unfortunately. 26 Mbps down on beta 2 and averaging about 7 Mbps down with beta 3.

I don't use TrueTone and I'm also experiencing a lot more cyan than before, so I don't think anybody is insane! Or I'm also insane. I guess either way works.

1) Definitely bluer (with TrueTone). It looks good, I had felt that the Xs was a bit warm compared to my previous X.

2) This update made my LTE signal indoors at home go from "no service" (sometimes 1 bar) to always 1 bar occasionally 2. This is a big improvement. Will take a day or two to report on call quality in my fringe area. I am on T-Mobile US.

can you see the cell ID on field test mode at least? LTE>Serving cell info on 12.0.1 shows Title and subtitle, which are placeholders.
Yes, I could see:
  • LTE>NAS/RRC State/Serving Cell Info/Serving Cell Meas/Tx Power/C-DRC/LTE Neighbor Cell Meas

Beta 3 made my LTE worse. On beta 2 I was able to make calls and surf the web on LTE, after updating to beta 3, now it states “no service”, or 1 bar and useless. Sent my feedback to Apple. Hope they fix this. I’m on iPhone 6s Plus.

This whole bluer screen is perplexing. Next person to update needs to take before and after pictures.
People are poor at remembering how things look and sound.

Like I’ve said, each screen is calibrated individually, Apple aren’t going to adjust screen calibration in a software update indiscriminately.

Y'all beta people need to report the bug with the ear piece and music that happens and needs a restart to fix.
