Correction: Since recording this episode I've discovered that the bug actually only occurred on the iOS 17.2 Beta and not the 17.1 GM build as I had originally thought. A testing device I was using was actually on the Public Beta program when I thought it was only running the GM builds. Either way the panic was real and the urgency was still just as palpable. The bug was affecting every user on the Beta Program which isn't insignificant. That makes me feel a bit better about my process for catching bugs like this, since I didn't miss it in an entire beta cycle, just a few days since the beta 1 was released.
