iPhone X Suica Problem Unit? Do Not Install iOS 12 Public Beta

The public beta should be dropping soon and I’m traveling the next few weeks without connections so this public announcement is going out now: if you have an iPhone X Suica Problem unit do not install the iOS 12 public beta. Leave beta testing to developers and fools.

The current iOS 12 developer beta 2 is wreaking havoc on iPhone X Suica problem units with users reporting much higher error rates everywhere, transit gates, cash registers, vending machines, you name it. Stick with the iOS 11.4 devil you know: at least you have a 50% chance of getting through the transit gate without an error. Wait until the official release and then some. You’ll be happy you did.
