iOS betas make JW Library go cranky! (PSA)

Recommended Posts

iOS 11.4 beta 1 has just been released but I won’t be trying it. JW Library is working just fine on iOS 11.3


I have been installing betas of iOS on my iPad Pro 9.7 and iPhone the last couple of years* but have decided to stop because of serious issues they can cause with JW Library on iPad. Specifically, selecting/highlighting some text results in text being selected/highlighted about 3 lines up! So it becomes a bit of a guessing game, sometimes setting the text size to huge in an attempt to highlight something at the end of a chapter.


I’ve had this problem with almost every beta right until the one before the official release of that version of iOS. It’s very strange, I think it’s to do with screen refresh timing or something. Some debug code perhaps slowing something down. Documents 5 and iBooks work fine though with all betas I think.


Maybe the problem doesn’t exist on the 2017 iPad Pro with its up-to 120Hz display.


(*To test/play with the latest features. Knowing I could always revert to a backup. The new Dock etc in iOS 11 was the main thing I was keen for anyway.)

The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. Ec 12:13

I am sure the brothers download and use the betas in software development. that way they can have everything working when the software is released


It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step :- Jer10:23.

Not a day goes by wherein the truth of this scripture is not reaffirmed
