Don't Install iOS 12.4 Beta If You Can't Deal With Bugs

If you can't stand dealing with bugs and hiccups, you'll probably want to avoid the iOS 12.4 beta for the time being. 

While iOS betas can be used on a primary device, we highly recommend using the early software on a secondary device if you have one. Apple agrees. 

In its iOS Beta FAQ Apple "strongly" recommends installing iOS beta software on secondary devices rather than primary ones. 

This is an unfinished product (that's why it's called a beta) and iOS 12.4 beta could potentially cause major issues on your iPhone or iPad. 

iOS 12.4 beta problems include broken apps and services, bad battery life, issues with Bluetooth/GPS/cellular data, and more. 

Apple will refine the iOS 12.4 update in future beta releases, but future betas will come with their own set of problems.

And while you might be able to fix some problems yourself, others will require a fix from Apple's engineers. Some iOS 12.4 beta problems might even stick around for the final release. 

If you depend on your device and your apps to get through a day at work or school, you'll probably want to stay put on official iOS software.

    I refuse to use web pages that spread out a single story over tons of pages. Like this one. It’s annoying as hell.

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for
    your site. You have some really great articles and I feel I would be a good
    asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some material for your
    blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please shoot me an email if interested. Many thanks!

    Same issue. Click bait to get through the article. I quit as soon as I saw the “2” with 9 pages total. It’s disrespectful.
