    I can assure you Apple have top men working on this problem. Who?! Top... men

    But is it really? They are taking time to do it proper and probably to ensure there are no other similar bugs. I rather them take their time and do it all once instead of needing another patch later down the road if a similar thing happens again.

    Maybe we’ll see another beta this week and then the release? Is that a possibility?

    I think its possible for them to take their time, etc... and still have this as embarrassing. The embarrassment is not for the time its taking to fix. Its that they had such a difficult to fix bug present in the first place.

    But my response was to "this is starting to looking embarrassing." Which heavily implies that the time taking to release 12.1.4 is the cause of the embarrassment.

    To an informed crowd like us who appreciates the intricacies of software development, it’s fine. However, the general public is less knowledgeable and is more prone to throw up its arms. Especially after missed deadlines.

    But it seems like the general public doesn’t even care anymore. I’m usually the go-to person when it comes to technology issues when it comes to friends and family. Not one of them is concerned about this now that it’s disabled. Sure that’s anecdotal. But that fact that news outlets aren’t reporting it anymore just shows that the “outrage” is subsiding.

    I doubt it'll be next week. Although Apple has been bad about keeping to their deadlines recently, I think it'd be really bad for them to miss two publicly announced release deadlines.

    I wonder if iOS 12.2 beta 2 has the group FaceTime fix?

    Stop spreading false information without proof to back it up. You’ve said this twice now with absolutely zero evidence.

    My bad, I forgot Apple stoped it server side. I generally thought the latest beta didn’t have the fix. Sorry folks.

    However I do think if the latest beta contain the fix then Apple would of released 12.1.4 by now?

    The bug is killed on server side. Let Apple take the time they need to get things going the safe way.
    It’s the never ending nagging of how slow Apple is releasing updates that is one of the problems with bugs in the first place.
    Stop nagging or accept bugs! I prefer the former—you should as well!

    Between developer beta, public beta, and iOS 12.1.4, iOS 12.1.4 is the most important for them to get right. If there is another minor bug or problem in beta, they will seed another beta in a week or two. Public release is a lot more important to get right than beta.

    Also, we have no idea how much work goes into ensuring that the server side stuff is ready. They could release the beta's without server side being ready. Once iOS 12.1.4 is released I think there is a higher expectation that server side will be enabled at the same time. Which is what they could be waiting for.

    It’s all this pushing pushing and nagging nagging to release NOW release NOW that causes many problems. It stresses even Apple. Why are you in such a hurry all the time? We need solid releases, not a zillion features which are not thorougly tested (Android is a great example—don’t push Apple into that corner).
