Tonight, many iOS 12 beta users are asked to receive error messages on the device, and inform them about updating to the latest beta release, although there are no updates available.
The Sylvania HomeKit Light Strip
informs users that there is a new iOS update available and that they should update immediately. "A new iOS update is now available. Please update from iOS 12 beta, says the question.
Although there is no update actually available to users, 9to5Mac's own Gui Rambo suggests that there is an error in iOS 12 beta 11 that makes it think the expiration date of this particular building is approaching. Of course, iOS 12 beta 11 was released only this week so it should not really be nearing the expiration date.
Popups have been on the surface since iOS 12 beta 11 was released but has become incredibly more frequent this evening. Personally, I see the notification every time I unlock iPhone X. Many other iOS 12 users are in similar situations.
It is unclear whether there is a server-side solution available for the problem, or if Apple needs to push a new update completely. Anyway, there seems to be no way for the user to fix it. The iOS 12 beta period has been incredibly comprehensive, with a total of 11 releases in mid-June. Apple is expected to release the stable version of iOS 12 to the public next month after it reveals its new iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4.
Do you experience these popups on your device? If yes, which beta number do you drive? Let us know in the comments.
It appears that this method in the Springboard does 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. @davedelong : P) pic.twitter.com/HWe7C0NnIT
