Hey everyone,

There's been a bit of confusion about how the subreddit allows bug posts as of lately, so I think its worth clearing it up before we begin discussing the changes that have made.

Why we allow bug posts

We allow bug posts here because we as moderators believe that this is an appropriate place to post them. This community, as a discussion platform for iOS betas, does provide a valuable place for people to discuss bugs that they have experienced with others. Bugs are a part of beta testing, and being able to see if other people have experienced the issue and what caused it for them is infinitely useful.

What we are not, though, is a replacement for the actual reporting channels provided by Apple or third-party app developers. Developers don't usually check this subreddit, whether Apple or a third-party. It's not their job. If you're posting a bug here, you should also be doing one of the following:

  1. Reporting it through Feedback Assistant
  2. Reporting it via Apple's Bug Reporter site
  3. Contacting the developer (if a third-party app)

Changes to bug posts

We recognize all of the above, and think that some improvements can be made for everyone: both users posting and developers.

A dedicated flair for third-party bugs

Betas can cause third-party apps to have bugs, too. Users who are using the beta might want a heads-up about bugs they'll experience. That's why we have allowed third-party app bug reports for some time now.

Still, third-party app bugs should be easily distinguishable from bugs in iOS itself, so we now have a new flair for third-party app bugs. Include "[Third Party Bug]" in your post title to add the flair to your post.

Bugs that have no relation to the beta at all will still be removed.

A reminder to properly report bugs

While we allow bug posts, we still do feel that there is a potential for users that think Apple does check the subreddit. To fix that, on each bug-related post, auto moderator will now reply with a small comment teaching users how to properly report the bug and why it's necessary.

Commonly posted bugs

We've had an increase of the same bugs being posted, so before you post anything, please check to make sure nobody else has recently. Nobody wants to see the same content repeatedly. This has also been added to the auto moderator message.


We hope that these changes can improve bug posts and how bugs are reported for everyone.

Thanks for participating,
/u/AppleBetas and the rest of the mods

I report bugs through the feedback app but I get frustrated that I can't update the bugs once they are reported. I often find more information about what caused a bug or something else changes about it and can't post an update. This also applies to replies to apple developers who have asked me to reply with more info. You can only do that once and then there is no way to update that reply.

And yes I reported this issue via the feedback app too.

If your issue is more of a long one or one you might need to explain more further, you can use Apple's Bug Reporter site, which lets you reply to add more information at any time.

Even for public beta? Thought it was only for developers?

Anyone can use it, the software builds are the same (just public is released slightly after developer)

My post wasn’t an image nor a video... it was a discussion clearly stated in the title. Silly mods are so silly.

Doesn’t have to be an image or video, reading can’t be that hard. Your title needs to tell the topic of the discussion, not just Discussion and a vague useless sentence.

In the future, please do not use the META tag for posts like this. The META tag is reserved for posts about the subreddit itself.

Yeah, I'm getting this too.
