    My iPhone 7+ has been updating since 10:30 am. Sigh... If I hold the power button, it tells me that it will restart when the update is finished, so I guess it's still alive. <g> Thank goodness it isn't my primary phone,
    I had this issue too! Took 2 hours to finish loading update.

    Open the watch app on your phone, scroll to settings-reset-reset sync. My contacts were back after doing this
    I’ve also tried this and my reset sync data isn’t resetting should I try unpairing and repair it? I just don’t wanna screw up the cellular data plan.

    After doing the reset sync you will not notice if it reset or not because it doesn’t do or show anything on the watch screen. Did you check your messages on the watch after doing the reset sync? I went into my messages and my contacts were there.

    I'm seriously considering going with the iOS 12 beta (Dev or Public) because the battery life on the Official iOS 11.4.1 is less than desirable. Just curious who's using the Beta 12 and official Apple Watch OS (4.3.2) on the original series Apple Watch and what problems if any has occurred besides the now fixed contact issues?

    None. The only one was the contact issue which is now fixed.

    Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. Just curious Garz, you're using an "original series" Apple Watch with iOS 12 (beta) on your iPhone?

    I was finally able to force a restart. It finished the installation after that. All is well now.

    Had it on my backup SE since the public betas came out. I think I'm going to pull the trigger and jump in on my daily driver X now.

    My Apple News widget doesn’t work in beta 3. It just says, “Read Stories in Apple News.” It doesn’t show the headlines. Anyone else?

    Same here for a few minutes. Also the TV widget suggested I didn't have any videos (which I did) and the TV app as well didn't show anything under store tab. Resolved after a network settings reset. It however had some funny behaviour last night glitch in out to a completely dark screen like it was completely off. The only way I knew it wasn't off was for my podcast playing in the background and my wireless charger indicating it was charging. Weird.

    Have had the camera app freeze on launching a couple times (black view finder until I force close and reopen), but other than that it has been pretty stable for me. Of course I haven't had it on for a full day yet so that could change. Overall feels like a nice evolution of ios 11.

    I've been using it on both my iPhone and iPad since beta 1 with no really breaking issues. I wouldn't use it if your main device is needed for critical stuff but if it's not, IMO I'd say go for it. There's definitely minor issues here and there but nothing that makes me want to restore back to 11.4.x

    Using it on my daily driver. I’d rather be on this beta version than IOS 11 any day. 11 was awful.

    Had an odd day today. Went to the movies and pulled my phone out halfway through because I had received any notifications (which is odd honestly) only to find out my phone was off. And it wouldn’t turn back on. Pressed the power button several times to no avail. Pressed and held it down and noticed two flashing red lights in the notch area (never seen that before). I imagine I only noticed the red lights because I was in a dark theater.

    Anyway, my phone wouldn’t turn on for a good hour to hour and a half. After continuing to mess with it after the movie it finally powered on and I haven’t had an issue since. Odd and extremely frustrating issue.

    This might be the buggiest build I’ve experienced. Messages icon badges won’t go away. Missed call icon badge not showing after missing calls. Missing calls (phone not even ringing on my end) randomly. Text thread conversations out of order. Submitted a few bug reports but if the missing calls issue continues I may have to jump ship.

    I’m not experiencing any of that, thankfully. Have you considered doing a clean install?
