  • When wallpaper contains lots of light colours (for example, a white background), in iPad landscape mode, date does not turn black, making it unreadable.

  • New Share Sheet launch speed is back to pre-iOS 12 era. It is now %50 slower compared to iOS 12.

Damnit man. Got the profile but there's no way I'm attempting an upgrade on airport WiFi.

Beta 2 release notes still mention the same things about third party apps, including WhatsApp, that they did with beta 1.
