    • When creating a new Pages, Numbers, or Keynote document in a shared folder, you might see the message: “Couldn’t connect to iCloud.”
    • When manually initiating iCloud backup from Settings > iCloud Account > iCloud > iCloud Backup > Back Up Now, the progress bar doesn’t complete. However, this doesn’t mean that the backup isn’t complete. Once the text below the progress bar changes from “Backing Up” to “Updating iCloud,” it indicates that the backup completed. However, the iCloud sync doesn’t complete due an issue with notes syncing with iCloud. Your notes might not be up to date on iCloud compared to the notes on your device

    • While using non-English languages, asking Siri to perform actions related to Reminders or Messages might cause the corresponding application to quit unexpectedly
    • When Announce Messages with Siri is enabled, music playback might be interrupted when a message is read.
  • After you enable Voice Control for the first time, resources begin downloading in the background. Once the download completes, you will receive a notification that Voice Control is ready for use
  • Voice Memos synced from iCloud might not play
  • When music app is being slide-over, “now playing” still shows a very small image for artwork If iPad is in landscape mode. No such issue if iPad is in portrait mode.
  • Dark mode switch takes extra time and opened app may have certain part remain dark or light before restarting the app or switching between apps.

The OTA is showing up but the the ipsw is still showing beta 2 in the dev center. Usually it is the other way around.

Usually this early in the game it's a week or so, usually not the next day.

From what I remember when it’s this early on, it’s the next day at 10am PT or 1pm.
When we get to public beta 4 or 5 (maybe 3?) we’ll get it at around 1pm PT same day as DB.
