    Detailed list of fixes

    Previous threads: Beta 1, Beta 2, Beta 3, Beta 4

    It would be greatly appreciated if you vote after actually using 8.3 for few days.

    - App Store: Touch ID no longer works for purchases. A password will always need to be entered regardless of what Touch ID setting is used. [It was a server-side issue and has been fixed]
    - System-wide: For any table item that has a minus button, when you tap the minus button, the confirmation button appears as usual, but the labels "fly in."
    - Notification Center: On iPad, if you try to open Notification Center while an app is opening/closing or the device is being unlocked, Notification Center always opens in portrait orientation and snaps back to place once the animation completes.
    - Health: When editing the Medical ID, the buttons and labels are misaligned.
    - Music: Artwork/Song/Artist sometimes incorrectly tagged / paired in 'Now Playing' window in the Music app
    - Music: Now Playing still goes away after an app restart - app no longer keeps track of what was the last played song/playlist. Bug since 8.3b1.
    - Photos: PNG files added through iCloud Photo Library on a Mac or a different iOS device will lose their quality and be compressed like a JPEG even if the device stores original images. Transparent PNGs lose tranparency. The device that added the PNG file will not experience the issue unless it is restored from iCloud, which redownloads the photo library.
    - Safari: Going to a website that is a PDF and typing a word in the search/URL bar and choosing "Find on Page" still yields zero results, even if the word is found multiple times in the PDF document.
    - Safari: Safari might freeze on simultaneous multi-character deletion, triggered by third-party keyboards, in HTML input elements like text boxes and textareas. The keyboard might however still appear as functional.
    - Siri: Doesn’t necessarily use the same units for distances as in Maps. For instance, Siri in English (UK) will use miles for distances, even though the embedded data from Maps uses kilometres.
    - Siri: Reminder entries are misaligned.
    - Weather: Choppy animations while expanding city.
    - Safari: YouTube forces a redirect to the YouTube app if installed. Can no longer do Background Audio in YouTube on Safari without deleting the app.

    – Folder corners no long resize when opening from the home screen
    – Twitter has returned to the Share Sheet (removed in Beta 4)

    iOS 8.3 (Final) Bug Fixes and Changes

    Bug Found: Open Outlook for iOS app, in landscape mode, compose a new email, then press the new bold/ italic/ underline button in the stock keyboard. As soon as you select any of these choices, the app will instantly close and bring you Back to the home screen.

    Edit: i just found it happens in Gmail too...

    At least my 5S still has it. The animation is faster than 8.2, but it looks chopped.

    Podcasts app is now version 2.2.1 (740.56) instead of 2.2 (740).

    There doesn't seem to be any noticable changes.

    1. iCloud photo library decided to restore photos I've deleted days or weeks ago.

    2. on iPad Air 2, still cant swipe to go back from the now playing screen in music.....still broken after 1.5 years.

    3. iPad Music app still stutters when scrolling through artists.

    4. iPad Lock screen music controls still obnoxiously close together (volume slider)

    5. iPad Starring a song popover menu off center form the "star" icon

    Makes me think they dont care but the new music app coming in June better not be a piece of trash buggy , laggy mess.

    And they dont care as much about iPad polish and stability.

    The 'family' emoji don't appear to have any different options, just the default?

    Yeah I noticed that to. I guess Apple figured it's better to leave it default then change everyone because clearly you wouldn't be able to change just certain people.

    I upgraded my iPhone to iOS 8.3 and now the free space reported by iTunes 12.1.1 for Windows is wrong. If I do a hard reset of my iPhone, it actually displays the correct value briefly before changing to the wrong one.

    Here's what the values are, first is the first displayed "right" one and second is the updated "wrong" one:

    Audio: 56.4, 314.9 MB (41 songs)
    Photos: 455.4 MB, 355.4 MB (754 photos)
    Apps: 17.62 GB, 16.10 GB (370 apps)
    Docs & Data: 1.67 GB, 1.19 GB
    Other: 1.99 GB, 1.77 GB
    Free: 4.96 GB, 7.05 GB

    Is anyone seeing this discrepency with iTunes for Windows after upgrading to iOS 8.3?

    Also I'm getting a popup periodically telling me my company's webmail server can't be verified.

    I Apple just implemented the Unicode standard. It might not be defined in it.

    Why is iTunes telling me my phone is up to date when I have an upgrade available for OTA?

    Every iPhone i have tried on any iOS 8 stutters when scrolling through Artists.

    In general scrolling stutters on way too many instances, it's my biggest gripe about iOS 8..x.x
