If you have this problem, you have a lot. As of August 30, iOS 1
And when we say it tells you, it really tells you. Each time you unlock iPhone or iPad, you get this notification and you must press Close to continue.
While there is no good solution before Apple solves the problem, you can work around. Go to Settings General Date and time . Turn off Set automatically .
Then tap the date displayed in blue and roll it back in a month. It will be out of Settings and you will not see the error again.
Why does it work?
The error is not that the phone thinks it's a new update, it's that it believes the old one has expired. Each beta, either iOS or an individual app, comes with an expiration date, after which it will stop working. This is how you get full functionality for the test period, but as soon as the final software is released, there are no copies of beta floating around.
In some way, this iOS 12 beta release is incorrect expiration date and by changing your system back in a month or a couple of weeks, the beta means it's still valid.
Why is it just a solution
You need your iPhone and iPad to have the right date. It's ridiculous to have such an expensive device that tells you that mistake, and it's going to throw out your workouts too.
Still, it's not as bad as the incessant update file.
Look for unexpected consequences, though. You know your calendar should show the wrong date for today, and you know you should forget that you've done this. Therefore, we recommend going back one month instead of a couple of weeks: we rolled back from 31st August to 31st of July so that at least the day's digit is correct.
However, the date and time are much deeper into the system than you might think. Any documents you create, for example, will have an incorrect data stamp. Some sites will not be loaded.
And so it is. Imagine having watched Apple Watch, and it counts something like an hour. While it does, change the date on the iPhone and see if you can see the difference on Apple Watch. Here is before and after.
So that's hardly an ideal solution, it's not a solution, and we'll fix it immediately. Apple addresses the problem. However, it is the only solution that gives you a break from this incredible error.
You have the beta on a dedicated test device, and not your main, not?
