My wife and clients think I'm ignoring them and beta 2 has exacerbated this issue. Mail is also hopelessly broken. By far the buggiest iOS beta since iOS 7.

Before anyone asks, yes, I have submitted bug reports.

Same here... call comes in does not even ring once and Call Failed is displayed.

What is strange is the call continues ringing on my Apple Watch, but when I answer it, no one is there.

Definitely a bug.

Is this specific to a carrier or LTE band/frequency? I have not seen this issue with my iPhone XS on T-Mobile in the US.

holy , I had the same problem too. I am Singtel (Singapore Telecom Service Provider). The phone doesnt even ring!! Whether I am on 4G or WiFi, if the caller is using 4G to call, I will not be able to receive the call.

I am using my personal phone to test ios13. I am f**ked... Any chances they will patch this asap?

It seems unlikely they'll release a patch for this specific problem outside of the beta cycle. Betas, developer betas in particular, are not supposed to be installed on mission-critical devices. (Yeah, I know you know this, but this is the perfect example of why they say it.) The best bet at this point would be to revert to iOS12 to ensure you can receive calls.

That's what I'm thinking - I'm in Dubai, so could be a carrier issue here.

Stopped reading after I saw the word client.

Just don't do this on your personal / business phone. It's beta for a reason.

It is not easy to resist the temptation indeed!

I’ve had this since B1 and found a workaround in B2. The workaround is:

Settings —> Mobile Data —> Mobile Data Options —> Voice and Data —> Select 3G

Choosing 4G data or 4G voice and data causes issues.

It's reasons like this why I wait during these early betas until I get a fair degree of confidence that the beta builds are stable and won't impact my daily workflow.

I can't afford to be f'd. Anyone else that can't afford to be f'd shouldn't throw early beta OS's on their personal/daily use device.

This kind of problem is the perfect exemple of why I'll never understand why some people wants to install betas (especially betas of major iOS releases) on their main phones. Personally, I just put betas on my iPads. Absolutely no beta no matter how cool the features are is worth it to install on my everyday phone that I need to be reliable at all cost.

My phone have (and always will) the current public iOS version.
