Question about Clock App / StopWatch

Hi!

I don't know if this feature was not present before or I had just not discovered it. I go to the gym, and once it ocurred to me to keep the stopwatch running so I could check how much time I was resting, then from one day to the other, probably a beta update, the stopwatch time started to show up on my lock screen, which was awesome, and then now it went back like before, I start it but can't seem to discover how to make it show on my lock screen again

I just want to know if I am right, crazy, or doing something wrong

[iOS 17.4 Beta 3] Contacts app: Some Memojis have a transparent background

https://imgur.com/a/FzaLnJB

I'm not sure how I achieved this. Has anyone seen this before or can anyone replicate it? I love the look and would love to do this for every contact I have a Memoji for.

This first photo is a comparison between a contact photo with no background vs one with one of the color backgrounds, in the Messages app. The second photo is how the picture with the transparent background looks when I'm editing the contact's photo in the Contacts app.

[iOS 17 PB4] Apple Watch says it needs updated but no update available?

Edit: Managed to fix by resetting watch from settings menu and repairing with iPhone - it picked up the watchOS 10 update during pairing and now seems to be updating 🤞🏼

Hi everyone, not sure if this is the correct place for this but I’m struggling to find any info elsewhere. I’ve been on the Public Beta program for years now and no issues until now.

I recently updated to iOS 17.4 on my iPhone and my Apple Watch is showing version 9.6.2 (20U90) with no further updates available. However, it constantly gives me a pop up on my iPhone telling me the watch needs updated and the Watch app shows the same, but with no option to download or start an update.

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this please? According to the Apple website I should also have the option to update to iOS 10 on the watch because I’m on the beta program but I can’t see that option anywhere either. TIA!

[IOS 17.4 DB3] Use Face ID to approve child account app request

Pretty much as it say's in the title. I'm sure that in the past I have been able to use Face ID to approve requests but now I have to enter my iCloud password each time (some time 5 or 6 time in a row as son cannot just install one app).

Am I imagining things or are other people able to use Face ID? And if so any idea what I might have set wrong? Everywhere else the password is required Face ID works.

Thanks

[IOS 17.4 DB3] 1Password autofill doesn’t fill in sites

Downloaded iOS 17.4 beta 3, and my 1Password app autofill doesn’t work. The passwords tab on the keyboard pops up, and the profile for the site pops up, but when I click it, and it takes me back to the login, the autofill info doesn’t show up, and the keyboard dissapears. Anyone else have this issue? I’ve tried on chrome, opera, and brave.

[iOS 17.4 DB3] iPhone 15 Pro Max Charging/not charging when connect to a MacBook Pro

Discovered what seems to be a bug when you connect your iPhone to your MacBook Pro, it charges then quickly switches to not charging. It simulates a defective USB C cable, however, it’s not. My troubleshooting consisted of the following:

  • Swapped multiple USB Type C cables, including Apple’s original USB Type C iPhone cable ( I’m an iPhone 15 Pro Max User).

  • Turned on/off iPhone and MacBook Pro devices

  • Switched the USB C cable to multiple USB C ports on my MacBook Pro

  • Ran the following command on Terminal:

sudo killall -STOP -c usbd

  • When I connected my iPhone to my windows machine, charging seems to be fine and doesn’t cause the issue.

  • I restored from an early backup which contained iOS 17.4 DB3, issue still occurred.

  • I restored from a backup that had iOS 17.4 DB2 and the issue went away.

As of now, I disabled iOS beta updates to prevent it from updating to DB3.

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

[iOS 17.4 DB2] auto correct issues since update

predictive text is off, I suspect this is auto correct like it is telling me what it is going to auto correct to before I finish the word, but it never did it before, if I turn off auto correct then auto correct does not work clearly. Does anyone have any experience with this or any suggestions??

[iOS 17.4 DB2] Wake-up delay fixed?

Has anyone experienced a delay in waking up when it takes 1-3 seconds to wake up after tapping on the screen on 17.4 beta 2?

Since the update to beta 2, I have never encountered this, but the last time it happened to me was on 17.4 b1 and 17.3 official release

[iOS 17.4 PB2] Unable to reply to messages on Tesla. Messages not sent.

When my phone is paired via Bluetooth, I receive a message and click the reply button which brings up a voice to text recorder. The message is typed, but it’s never actually sent. When I check my phone, the messages are not there even through they appear on the message app on the car. It’s a specific issue with this iOS as I tested with another phone to rule it out with an older iOS version and worked without an issue.

Does iOS [17.4 PB2] fix camera lag problem?

Hi, I have iPhone 12, and I am experiencing serious problems with camera. Sometimes while taking a photo, phone freezes and I'm not able to go back to menu. Generally the process of taking photos is very laggy. Does iOS 17.4 fix that? Do you have similar problems? I have read that numerous people are having the exact same issue with camera after upgrading to iOS 17.

Does 17.4 DB2 feel more unstable than normal to others?

To preface, I know it’s a developer beta, I expect bugs and issues & have no issue with them as I made the choice to install it. However, compared to recent other beta builds, and even DB1, I’ve run into a lot more general instability. Just wondering if this is something others are experiencing too, or if I need to give my phone a wipe & reinstall…

[iOS 17.4 DB2] Control Centre bug

When the control center is opened or closed at the time of automatic brightness change, the closing or opening animation is played with lags.

Upd: This also happens with the volume slider. It seems that the reason for this is the animation of the slider. Try to pull the volume slider down sharply so that there is an animation of its movement, during which you will quickly close the control center. The animation of closing the control center will be delayed

Troubleshooting steps: Disabled and Re-Enabled SMB, Uninstalled and Reinstalled the Apple Files app and reconnected my NAS SMB connection on the Apple Files app.
