iOS 12 Beta 7 Changelog

  • Resolved Issues:
    • Settings app crashing issue resolved.
    • Users might encounter a situation where Apple Pay becomes unavailable.
      └ Workaround: Try opening Wallet and using the card again. If the issue persists, restart the device and try again.
  • New Issues:
    • Group FaceTime has been removed from the initial release of iOS 12 and will ship in a future software update later this fall.
    • While signed in with a production account and testing with a sandbox account, attempting to fetch a new valid receipt displays a sign-in prompt for the production account with no option for switching to the sandbox account.
      └ Workaround: For testing purposes, StoreKit calls such as making a purchase and restoring transactions will fetch a new receipt. Alternatively, sign out of the production account.
    • After updating to iOS 12 beta 7, parents should change the Screen Time passcode to prevent children from signing out of iCloud or changing the system time.
