I’m a tech nerd, and really want to try out the iOS 12 betas that are likely to be released next month. I feel like the beta versions of iOS might have compatibility issues with the VPN. What do y’all think?

Hi Early Adopters!

We haven't received the iOS 12 beta yet. So there's not much we can say except 1) "...at your own risk..." and 2) we understand.

Since we don't have it, we can't test it. We don't know how it will go for you, if you try it out a beta iOS and our app. At the same time, we understand because some of us are also early adopters! It's fun to be on the leading edge of stuff, and iOS 12 looks to have some great features. But, as a company, we've learned that our developers time and energy is better spent after some of the initial bugs are worked out.

Best wishes,

Robert

So I wanted to give an update to all. Covenant eyes VPN is compatible with IOS 12 beta. The beta is still glitchy however so use on a secondary device. It does in fact load your apps faster. Of note, the restrictions section is now in screen time. Was confusing at first. But good luck to all of the early adopters.

I agree with Tom. I installed it as well. I have personally seen very few bugs. Actually, 12 feels smoother than 11.4. CE seems to work well too. Though I don't use the browser very often. Since the new CE build (VPN) for iOS I have used Safari. I should add... Screen Time offers a lot more options for users to customize their accountability!

FYI covenant eyes browser does not work in multitasking windows (side by side) in iOS 12.
