 iOS 13 Public Beta – Wifi/network issues

iOS 13 public beta is out and within a few hours of it coming out, with very little efforts, I got it installed on my phone. My excitement of seeing the dark mode on my iPhone was short-lived as I discovered my phone’s internet just stopped working( even though LTE icon was shown). I tried connecting to several WIFI networks, a VPN icon would appear momentarily and then disappear. Finally after spending 30 minutes troubleshooting, I discovered the issue was with VPN auto-connect. I had a few VPN profiles saved that weren’t used for over a year but with this upgrade, the VPN decided to turn itself on and failed every time it tried to connect(As VPN is not officially permitted in UAE). I Deleted all VPN profiles and all seems to work well now.

Just as is the case with any BETA software, always expect things not to be perfect, I can already see a fee apps breaking but all should be fine with time.
