    Default Is anyone having problems setting an alarm tone with iOS 10 PB 2?

    I am running ios 10 public beta 2 on my SE and switch between it and dev beta 3 on my 6+. I just switched back to my SE and I am unable to set a tone for the alarm. When I try to select sound to choose it force closes and goes back to the home screen. It has been working fine so not sure if I have done something. Anyone run into this?

    yes, i tried resetting and still didn't work. I downgraded back to ios 9.3.3 and it worked. I reloaded ios 10 and it worked. When i restore my backup to the phone, now it doesn't work. Must be something in my backups?

    It's always a good idea when you're running any beta to do a clean install (ie; install like new). Often times when issues like this occur it's either due to a bug, a bad file overwrite, or app incompatibility. To rule any of those out, do clean installs and redownload apps fresh from the app store rather than from a backup.
