    Don't know why I'm not seeing it. My other device does not see the OTA. Must be caching weirdness.

    EDIT: Yep, it was caching. VPNing made it show up.

    In my case, a restart and two attempts did the trick.

    Restart and try.

    This is serious. Can be a make or break for beta 3 users who are daring enough to use it as a daily driver.

    The New Issues section seems kinda scary, lol. I may hold off on this one once it hits PB.

    10 business days since Beta 2, 10 builds. Make sense.

    In the release notes, it says "workaround: restart your device"

    "• Your device might not register for iMessage and FaceTime using your phone number. (41374914) Workaround: Restart your device."
