    My brother was running the public beta on his main device. He was charging his phone two days ago and the phone reset while it was charging. After the reset it wouldn't come back on. It would boot to the Recovery screen. After several restore attempts he had to take it to the Apple store. The reps were pretty adamant on NOT running the iOS 11 beta. It was pretty interesting to hear how they spoke so against it. Not sure if that's indicative of anything. But obviously we all know it's not best to run a beta on a device you depend on. But they seemed pretty strongly about it.
    It’s understandable. I wouldn’t want the non-tech Savvy masses to install a beta operating system and deal with their venom when their favorite apps stop working or fail to work properly. They wouldn’t care that the developers of needed to update them, and they would only blame Apple for causing the problems.

    Anyone else had camera bug? Every now and then whether in default camera app, snapchat, Instagram the camera is totally black.

    In Beta 1 I had to restart to get access to the camera again, in beta 2 it seems resolved by closing an camera related app.

    SAME. ugh. Really ruins my quick camera access! It will also freeze often when I swap between rear and front facing.

    I had mine do that the other day (froze, then restarted to the "connect to iTunes" screen) -- had to restore it with an IPSW. Been ok since, but this beta does stink. Bring on the next update!

    Same for me too with the swap. Any hopes of a quick snap are dashed thanks to this bug!

    I’ve also noticed that while I’m in the middle of apps I get a black screen, the spinning logo in the middle then after about 20 seconds it restarts at the home screen. That wasn’t an issue in Beta 1

    Yes, that's fairly prevalent in this beta

    Probably a combination of an overall bad day for the Rep and dealing with the number of people who think they can run the beta as if it's not a beta.

    The one thing I will say is I like it. It’s buggy but once they’re ironed out I like most of iOS 11

    They typical behavior is that we will see it tomorrow. But I have seen the public beta released later in the day sometimes.

    What iPhone are you using the beta on? I'm on a iPad mini 3 and haven't had any crashes. A few apps shut off but nothing major to go back to 10 at all.

    IPhone 7 Plus. It’s freezing a couple of times a day, have to do a hard reboot. Clash of clans causes the phone to restart almost every time I use it. It’s gotten worse over the last couple of days. Maybe I will do a wipe and start over.

    I have installed it on my 6s and it responds very slowly to any operation...opening any app or Safari.

    When closing apps when multiple apps are open, flick up on an app and any subsequent apps that are open slide to the right of the screen. It's just wonky...I know...a technical term!

    Just wanted to post my observations...can't wait until the next release.

    I cannot power the phone off. When I hit the power button and then do the "slide to power off" just makes the phone restart!

    This update is not very good for me on ATV 4. Airplay is hit and miss on it working at all from iPhone 7+ (iOS 10.3.3) to ATV 4 (iOS 11 public beta 2). And when it does work, its audio only with a black screen and the loading circle.
