    I can’t stand having the battery percentage on the lock screen. I don’t need a battery percentage.

    It’s possible the next beta isn’t till 2 weeks or earliest next week if it is to address the Group FaceTime. It’s still possible to downgrade without losing data on iOS 12.1.4 using iTunes recovery mode.

    I can’t believe all the whining about the battery meter on the lock screen. It’s a bloody beta. Come on guys, get a grip please

    Had the red dot on app icons (new mail, message etc) always SUCH a parallax effect?

    Can you do this downgrade without iTunes?

    No because the beta build is higher than the release build so you won’t get the OTA update.

    What’s more annoying is that people are surprised that it’s there when they install this beta when it’s written clearly in the release notes as a known bug.

    I finally had a good battery life day on this beta.

    Things i noticed: phone not getting warm often or randomly. Only once or twice when I was doing Uber.

    Cell radio didn’t crash at all since I rebooted it this morning.

    Slow drain each hour and mind you I was listening music for at least four hours which is more than I usually do, and using my phone at the same time too.

    At 16% now.

    Anyways let’s see how it does tomorrow.

    I’m at 13% now and been using gps on and off and playing music since that post.

    Same. That’s why I’m surprised today. Looks like restarting in the morning might have helped me today.

    Narrator: This is why you should not be on betas if you can’t get back to the release build.

    But he’s exactly right. You should not be using a beta as a daily driver if you aren’t happy to put up with some potentially major issues. Why don’t you go back to a public release and save yourself a headache?

    Mine switches to the date (as designed) after about a second so it’s obviously not everyone but still needs a fix.

    Does this mean I can skip my car payment this month?

    It is also worthy to note that the 12.1.4 update resolved/patched 2 zero-day vulnerabilities that had been exploited in the wild already. If those patches aren’t already in 12.2 beta 2 I suspect we will see beta 3 sooner rather than later.

    4G still awful. It’s a hardware problem. If it was software they would of fixed in 1/2 updates.

    I would be curious what OpenSignal says for your area. Are your expectations in sync with real world usage?

    I was in the same boat at times. "Speeds suck" ... I then got OpenSignal and discovered ... "Oh, it sucks for everyone else too."

    Have you compared the speed with other phones in the same location?
