    Hey guys! I will probably get shot down here but I am going to create what I think is a much needed thread!

    Please report all iOS 5 Bugs you encounter here.

    This is a dedicated thread to bug reports and not a general iOS5 discussion thread, hence it is not a duplicate thread.

    No taking it down please......... John ;)

    Well, while I don't agree that it is a much needed thread, mostly due to the fact that we are talking about 'bugs' in a 36 hour old first beta launch, I will share with you the issues that I have encountered with iOS 5 so far, bearing in mind Apple probably knows about the majority of them before launch anyway;

    • Messages.app has issues. When in a message replying or reading, and you the top left hand corner shows Messages(1) to indicate you have an unread in the inbox, you have to fully exit the app and come back it for it to be visible. Also, I had an issue this evening with no SMS or iMesssages appearing then all of a sudden I received 16 at once time stamped three hours previous. Another thing I have noticed, which I think is intentional but that I find annoying is when you open Messages.app with the added iMessages functionality it now requires internet access so it can check whether a contact is on iOS 5 and to send via iMessage. To do this it pops the 'available wifi networks' alert up everything I go into messages, which is extremely annoying.
    • The Available WiFi alert box which pops up when an available wireless network is within range, now pops up regardless of whether it can find a network. It just pops up with an empty box which requires dismissing.
    • Not neccesarily a bug, but annoying nonetheless as a developer is that iOS5 now doesn't seem to like -(UIView *) viewForZoomingInScrollView:(UIScrollView *)scrollView {
    And whilst that might not mean much, it crashes my apps so I need to implement a workaround lol.

    They are the little annoyances that I have encountered so far, but also something i'd expect from a beta which is 3 months away from a public release.

    One more in the Messages app. If you split the keyboard on the iPad, it doesn't sit properly at the very bottom of the screen, but instead gets positioned a bit higher and covers over some of the most recent message entries.

    I don't want it on my iPad 2 either. I'm lucky and have a V1 that my wife and kiddo share as my 'testing' device. :)

    Anyone else here use the sky news app? All story pages are whites, as if the web view hasn't loaded.

    I haven't personally used on iOS 5 but I know from my own apps that iOS 5 has caused some really obscure problems with methods and classes that are pretty common throughout iOS revisions. Wouldn't surprise me if a UIWebView has been affected.

    I have a theory
    Big part of iOS 5 is
    Pushing updates wireless and messages etc
    Would you agree this is something the BETA tests most?
    The marketing will be focus a lot on No computer needed
    See keynote
    I would think think that most updates for the BETA are pushed throuh the device and you may not even get a notifaction sometimes?
    Apple can not afford to have any mess up there !
    In the 24 hours I had it I noticed that notifactions go from only text to text and mail and then only FB
    At the same exact time it is happening to sons phone
    That makes me believe Apple is testing this off and on !
    Just an observation and a logic explanation for it I guess!

    Newsstand does nothing for me so far, despite the fact I have two active subscriptions, one with content updated daily.

    Incoming calls won't receive with a Bluetooth headset. Fine for outgoing calls though.

    Double tap home button on lock screen and look to the right of the "slide to unlock" bar ;)
