Wondering how iOS 12 beta comes together? Well, set up a seat.
After what has been a good run for stability and sound performance, with the finish line now in sight, it seems to have been spectacularly tripped over their shoes and probably pulled out the most annoying bug I've seen during this beta cycles.

The new error results in a popup being generated each time the handset is unlocked or the notification panel is being used. The popup tells me that there is a new iOS version available.
It's not one. But this mistake makes me wish it was one.
According to Guilherme Rambo develops the problem looks like a data error:
It appears that this method in Springboard makes some date / time calculations to determine if the current building is about to expire whenever the cover is rejected. For some reason, the latest buildings in IOS 12 believe they are about to expire.
Now you're likely to point out that this is a beta, and these are exactly what things do. In fact, they are just what kind of betas should do.
I disagree. We go into an expression where everything is continually a beta. Look at the recent years worth of iOS releases.
Same with macOS. Or Windows. Or Android. Or pretty much any other code you tend to mention.
And remember, in a few days, millions of people will run iOS 12.
This feels less a beta issue, and more a general lack of QA, a whole industry willing to push code to meet publishing dates and patch later, and end users who see this as a norm.
