    Folks I've been using very actively my iPhone with iOS 6 B3, seems that always-on-proximity-sensor does not have much impact on battery life (compared with iOS 5.1.1 on my 4S). Display brightness sometimes acts in a weird way, so bright in not too illuminated places (i.e. inside my car at night).

    But lately I've noticed that signal strength drops suddenly to 4 flat lines (as it were with almost no signal) and stays that way until an imessage is sent or a call made. Compared to other work partners iphones 4S with iOS 5.X.X it doesn't happens.

    Anyone had seen this also?

    hi welcome to the beta process

    auotdim is a feature that knowingly needs work as well as the radio/cellular bug. also, probably should not compare what you have to a stable build like 5.1.1 because it is.. well.. STABLE

    Thank you BLiNK for your comments, when made comparison to others' iPhones was for reference only, knowing that a stable final release, like iOS 5.1.1 is ironed, compared to a 3rd beta release.

    It's been a issue on my iPad but iPhone has been fine. Heard many others say they had this issue too.

    The "death grip" does seem worse with iOS6. Only thing is, how does software effect a hardware issue?

    Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't death grip solved with the 4s??? As in they moved the bands on the ariel strip, they added a switch mode where if you're holding a certain way it swaps the ariels around.

    Might be wrong but I swear I remember something like this happening

    im using a 4. and yes, they messed with the antenna a bit in the 4S.

    as for the hardware/software relation, the antenna (hardware) has to talk to the phones electronics using the OS.

    Hi Buck1127; I've seen this issue on my iPhone 4S app store too. If It shows there's an update and you update that app, badge on app store icon disappears after update is made. However at any moment later it shows again making you believe there's another update when it isn't so.

    I think it is because app store is being revamped for iOS 6 and it is normal while things get fixed and rearranged.
