    This post is a wiki! Feel free to add any fixes, changes, or bugs that you have noticed while using iOS 8.1.1 Beta 1.

    Fixes
    • Share menu functions reordering bug fixed.
    • iOS seems to stop purging keyboards from the memory: 3rd party keyboards before 8.1.1 seemed to be always reloading like if they were purged from the RAM. Now they're not.
    • The Spotlight bug (the keyboard not showing up) seems to be resolved.
    • The rotation bug (iOS not reacting to a position change) seems to have been resolved.
    • The battery indicator problem (percentage dropping in 2-3% increments) too, seems to have been resolved.
    Changes

    Bugs
    • Facebook messenger 15.0 send button don't work after first message sent
      (workaround is to go back to contact list to send your second message)
      [FIXED IN FM 15.1 Update]
    • Safari copy/ paste bug whereas copying a link via share menu sheet, paste doesn't work while trying to paste in forum and etc.
    • Searching the content of PDFs being viewed in Safari fails - always returns no matches

    When listing fixes, please briefly describe the issue that is fixed. For instance, I've never seen any battery issues, but I know of multiple issues with device rotation. In no case do I actually know what you're referring to specifically.

    iPhone keeps restarting every 30 minutes. Went to DFU to do fresh install

    Restarting persists. Didn't have this issue in iOS 8.1

    Not a bug with iOS itself, but Facebook Messenger doesn't seem to like iOS 8.1.1 as its Send button no longer works after sending just one message. You have to return to the Friends List and try again.

    Could someone with 8.1.1 do some testing with play counts sync'd to iTunes? Play a song, sync to iTunes and check the play count of that song. Play the song again and then sync again. Does it add 1 or 2 plays? Play it again, does it add 1 or 3 plays? iOS 8 does not appear to reset the play count register after each sync. I'm very interested in knowing if this will be resolved in 8.1.1.

    Thanks.

    Anyone try it on an iPhone 4S/iPad 2 yet? The release notes specifically state it improves speed on those two devices, but how much?

    played a song 4 times and sync after each play, can verify that play count updates correctly in iTunes library, hope this helps! (5S on 8.1.1)

    My iPhone 6 feels a bit faster in general, but it could just be placebo effect. Time will tell if I see the stuttering problems I saw on 8.1.

    My iPad Air is still clunky when it comes to manipulating the keyboard, though.

    That aint gonna change. All the iPad stutter on the keyboard is due to translucent blurring effect used. Want to solve it? Get an Air 2. Its amazing. Hah

    I actually saw a video comparing 8.1 to 8.1.1 on a 4s and it looks the same. 8.1 is actually a bit faster in general use. Disappointing so far. I have a 6plus that stutters like crazy. Was hoping this update would help

    Looks like ApplePay isn't available as a payment option in the Uber app on 8.1.1. Can anyone else confirm?

    It's beta. Report it to Apple and get this fixed.

    Is the status bar issue when viewing pictures/videos in messages fixed? The status bar continues to show when viewing a picture/video in full screen in the messages app

    Not much love for third-party keyboards unfortunately. Still the same glitches with scrolling, changing keyboards spontaneously in Messages, and various other little glitches.
