iOS 15 beta 5 does not fix Safari forgets the scroll position on the previous page
Apple is known to host its annual iPhone event in the second week of September. At least that has been the case for the past four years, which is also when we see a new version of iOS.
This year’s iOS 15 update is currently in beta and with just a month until the potential iPhone 13 event which is also expected to see the new operating system hitting the stable channel, there is little left. room for mistakes.
Unfortunately, software development isn’t a walk in the park, not even for the best minds we know Apple has been able to assemble over the years.
With the release of the beta of iOS 15, many new additions and changes were made to the Safari web browser, most of which were a breath of fresh air in what looked like an outdated app.
The ability to pull down to refresh is one of the highlights of this update alongside a refreshed design. While everything was rosy until beta 3, the beta 4 released came with an unwanted addition.
Of course, Beta 4 surprised many after Apple allowed Safari users on iPadOS 15 to decide which UI version to keep. But he also broke a minor but useful function while he was at it.
According to those affected, iOS 15 beta 4 introduced an issue where the Safari browser forgot the scroll position on the previous page. And apparently the new beta 5 doesn’t fix the bug.
The above video was shared on Reddit and below we have a few other iOS 15 beta users who say they’ve had to deal with this issue since beta 4.
While the essence of a beta program is to solve such problems, now is not the time to deal with such annoyances. On the contrary, Safari on iOS 15 beta 5 should be almost stable.
Of course, Apple is likely to release several more beta updates before finally rolling out the stable version, so we expect to see a future version that fixes this bug.
Not everyone is affected, it seems. But for now, iOS 15 beta testers whose Safari browser doesn’t remember the scroll position on the previous page may have to hang in there and hope Apple realizes it.
As always, we’ll be keeping an eye on it and updating this story once we have a new development. You can also keep an eye on our iOS 15 update tracker to be notified when this fix arrives.
