Has anyone else noticed that iOS 11 Beta 2 is becoming more buggy the more you use it, so far I am finding the following major bugs;

1. Dock not disappearing in apps (always remains on top until I reboot)
2. Pressing on notifications does not always bring up any options, just does nothing
3. News app randomly closes
4. When playing music or other audio the lock screen widget does not always show up or cover art come and goes at random
5. Device sometimes freezing when switched on after a period of non-use

I am just finding its becoming more unstable with use; is anyone else finding this is the case?

Sorry you’re experiencing these issues @NeilWhitear. It’s been operating really well for me even before I did a clean install. Maybe give that a try even though it might be a pain. There’s always the option to revert back to iOS 10.3.X.

Its a strange one, I am finding my 7 Plus much more stable than up 9.7 Pro; I might give it a clean install over the weekend.

I don't know about you @mumfoau but I am really liking iOS 11, especially on the iPad from a productivity point of view.

It’s as fast and reliable as a public release, on both my iPhone and iPad.
I have no idea what went wrong on your end. But then again, it’s still just in Beta.

I've also noticed a few of the things you've mentioned on my 6s. And sometimes when I have an app open (any app) and I hit the Home button to close it out, it gets stuck there. I have to hit the power button and then go back in to the phone like normal. These bugs are persistent through factory resets without restoring from backup. I've been reporting my findings via the Feedback app.


I do not see these same bugs on my 9.7" iPad 2017.

It is a beta so those are kind of expected. Have you filed feedback with the feedback app? Hopefully some of those issues get fixed with the next beta.

My pro also seemed to be slower with IOS 11. It cant be the hardware can't handle it because the 9.7" has plenty of hardware to run it.

Yep, I feel the same way... a visible performance degradation with use and new bugs that were not there when first installed are showing up everyday. Looking forward for Beta 3.

Thankfully, that has not been my experience. I still have a glitch here and there, but that’s about it. Dev Beta 2 has been great for me, overall

Hopefully, the next Dev Beta drops this week and resolve many of the issues people are having.

11.0.PB2 on iPhone 6as.

Trying to do anything in safari behind the opera vpn is impossible. It is so slow. I give up before the bar is 1/3 across. (Same for iPad Air 2.)

In normal safari, and in the recents list in the phone app, the lists are unstable, jumping up and down, that one goes to tap something and before hitting it the screen moves and wrong thing is tapped.

That was the same issue I was having, I haven't download it on my 7 Plus but I did download it on my iPad Pro 9.7 and noticed that it seemed to less stable than it was on my friends 7 Plus. At first it was smooth than it started to stutter a lot for some reason.

I tried the beta on my iPad Pro, and it was nice except that I couldn't download anything from the App Store, and the dock would freeze to where nothing could be clicked on it. The worst thing was trying to go back to iOS 10.3.2., because I got caught in a recovery mode loop. Thankfully a quick google search got me out of it, and I'll be letting other people be guinea pigs from now on.

I have the same issue with my iPhone 6s as above, which is becoming more than frustrating now. My iPad Pro 9.7 is better off though clicking a link on Twitter or browsing via Safari is a nightmare. It doesn't load at all. I deleted the Profile thinking it will be better but the same problem persists. Now I can't even download profile again since Safari is stuck. so My iPhone 6s is a mess right now. Going off and on as it pleases. When will an update be available? Any one?
