Call for testing: WordPress for iOS 12.0

What to Test

New Features

  • Block Editor: The block editor for the apps is still in beta. Check out the block editor announcement post for details about what to expect and how to test it.
    • Dictation now works with the block editor. Try dictating text in the editor (using the built-in iOS dictation) and confirm it works as expected.
    • Fixed an issue in the block editor where images could not be uploaded to private sites.

Bug Fixes

  • Redesigned Notices: To test, trigger a notice and confirm it appears with a dark background and light (readable) text. Notices you can trigger include: uploading media to the media library, unfollowing a site in the Reader, and navigating the app while offline. (PR #11118)
  • Offline: Changed offline error messages to be less disruptive (a notice instead of an alert). To test, turn off your network connection and navigate to the Reader, My Site > Comments/Pages/Blog Posts, or Notifications. (PR #11171)
  • Find all other changes/fixes in the related PRs targeting 12.0.
