    Does anybody have their XS in an Apple Folio case? When you close the flap it should turn off the screen. Mine is not shutting off the screen on b5. But I just got the case so I don’t know if it is the phone or the beta OS that is at fault. It works fine on my wife’s X, which is on 12.0.1 release, so I know it is not the case....

    That may be a purely cosmetic change, though.

    Try waving a magnet around the right side of your screen and see if it turns off.

    I don’t but maybe this might help.

    There might be a setting for it. On iPad, there is a “lock / unlock” toggle in display & brightness settings that determines whether closing the case turns off the display.

    Thanks for posting these results.

    Your LTE down and up is better, and your WiFi up is better.

    I wonder if these improvements are due to beta 5?

    Are you sure it‘s the FPS and not just OLED smearing due to barely lit pixels? Same effect as in e.g. dark mode apps (with pure black colors)?

    I honestly can’t believe how people—year after year, day after day—keep talking about this subject!

    Do you expect your car to drive from CA to NY without fueling it up once in a while?

    Where’s your charger? Use it!

    I have XS MAX T-MOBILE and I have to use WiFi 5 G for WiFi calls LTE breaks up 1 BAR, I live in a major city no to LTE issues when I pop my sim into my old android phone my LTE is 5 bars you know. So no still LTE issue due to either software or this new intel modem they using I don’t know ‍♂️. I think my battery life is fine, I’m a big Fan or Edge Browser on IOS I know strange right, that is the only browser where I can be on my cell phone for 3 hours at a time using the web and not kill my phone every other browser I used chrome, FF, iOS browser etc etc all suck with battery life.

    Seems like the discussion isn't really about being able to charge but how long the device can go between charges.

    If we are using car analogies, it's one thing to need to get gas here and there when going from CA to NY, but it's another thing to need it very often, and more often than before on similar if not the same trip.

    The 12.1 betas have been pretty glitchy performance-wise. 12.0 (and the betas) were smoother for me.
