My iPhone running the iOS 12 beta keeps telling me I have an update available any time I drag down and open the command center (and then dismiss it). There is no update available when I go to Settings. Can I fix this, or is it a known bug?
iPhone and iPad users who have installed the current iOS 12 beta are being plagued with a continual popup that suggests a new iOS update is available when it’s not. Affected users are seeing the following message: “A new iOS update is now available. Please update from the iOS 12 beta.” The problem is users receiving this message are running the most recent version of iOS and there is no additional software to update to.
Beta testers have been seeing this popup since the latest beta was released on August 27, but over the course of the last day, the popups have become much more frequent. Many users are now seeing the popup every time an iPhone or iPad running the beta is unlocked or Notification Center is dismissed, and it is a popup that must be manually dismissed each and every time before an iOS device can be accessed.
Developer Guilherme Rambo has suggested that an error in the latest update causes the iOS beta to think that its expiration date is imminent, leading to the popup problem. Complaints on Twitter and the MacRumors forums are picking up from users who are frustrated with having to continually dismiss the popup.
Apple has surprised developers by releasing the 12th iOS 12 beta on the Friday before the U.S. Labor Day holiday weekend. The update, available over-the-air (OTA) and via the Apple developer site, fixes an alert issue that popped up in iOS 12 beta 11.
Earlier today, some developers reported receiving an iOS update message on their machines with iOS 12 beta 11 installed. That message read: “A new iOS update is now available. Please update from the iOS 12 beta.” Once installed, iOS 12 beta 12 resolves that issue. If we find anything else new with this beta, we will let you know by updating this post.
Today’s update has a build number of 16A5366a. As a reminder, Apple’s holding its iPhone-focused fall event on Wednesday, Sept. 12 beginning at 10 a.m. PDT. The “Gather round” event should feature the introduction of three new iPhones, two new iPad Pro tablets, and the 2018 Apple Watch.
Leaked images purportedly showing the so-called iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4 were published on Thursday.
