    After upgrading to beta 3 on my iPad mini 4 i noticed a strong "flickering" on the Dock and its Apps, the Dock will rewrite and or the Apps will shift to the right in a flicking pattern and at times the Dock will disappear completely. When i turn 'Reduce Motion' on in General/Accessibility the flicking stops but the Dock disappear when I rotate the pad to Portrait then when I rotate to landscape to Dock appears but there's a duplicate of the apps superemposed on it, finally , can anyone tell me what "file:///System/Library/Extensions/AGXMetalA8.bundle/AGXMetalA8" is? Thanks

    I went into Settings>General>Acessibility>Increase Contrast and turned on Reduce Transparency, I then clicked on the home button opened safari, closed safari, reopened settings and turned Reduce Transparency off. The dock reappeared. Let me know if this worked for you.

    I too have a flickering dock on my iPad pro 12.9 that just popped up with public beta 4. Assuming they will fix with next release.

    Same issue here but with Beta 4. On Beta 3 my Ipad Air 2 was fine as far as flickering was concerned.

    Hmmmm. This must be a bug that effects only certain hardware. I have yet to notice it on my 6s Plus running dev beta 5 which is equal to public beta 4.

    I have the dock flicker, show background flashes of app windows, and other weirdness and I have 6S+ running pub beta 4.

    Yes, this took care of my issue too. Thank you. I hope they fix this annoying issue with the next OS release.
