iOS 12 Beta 5 Bluetooth Problem
The release notes for iOS 12 Beta 5 mentions Bluetooth issues which might create trouble with paired Bluetooth accessories after you restart your device.
After restarting your device, paired Bluetooth accessories might not function correctly or might be displayed using the device’s address rather than its name.
If you are experiencing issues with your paired Bluetooth accessories on the Beta 5, you can try forgetting the device and pair it back to fix the problem.
- Go to Settings » Bluetooth.
- Tap the circular icon next to the troubling Bluetooth accessory name.
- Tap Forget This Device.
- Pair with the device again.
If you’re experiencing random restarts on your iPhone running iOS 12 Beta 5, it’s probably because of the Messages app. Multiple users have reported random restarts on their device while using the Messages app on Beta 5.
As of now, there’s no workaround to this problem. But to ensure the next Developer Beta or Public Beta release fixes the issue, be sure to report it to Apple through the Feedback app.
Poor WiFi speed
Seeing poor WiFi performance on your iPhone after updating to iOS 12 Beta 5? Welcome to the club. iOS 12 has had WiFi issues since the Beta 2 release. Our own iPhone X is a victim to this problem.
To get temporary relief from iOS 12 WiFi problems on iPhone, you can try restarting your device and the WiFi router in your home/office.
Unable to download apps
The iOS 12 Beta 5 addresses the App Store problem which didn’t let users download apps on their iPhone. However, if you’re still having trouble even on the Beta 5, try downloading the app over Cellular Data since WiFi speed is a known issue in iOS 12.
That’s it for now, but we’ll be sure to update this post if there are any more critical issues in the Beta 5. Cheers!
