Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 13.2

WordPress for iOS version 13.2 beta is available for testing on TestFlight. You can sign up for our TestFlight program and join as a beta tester by opening that link on your iPhone or iPad.

An important update in this release is the introduction of the option to Sign In with Apple in preparation for the release of iOS 13. 🎉

Disclaimer: iOS 13 is currently in beta. Beta software refers to a version of software that is still under development and is not yet released to the public. Make sure to back up your devices before installing beta software and install only on devices and systems that you are prepared to erase if necessary. If you do not have a device you would like to use, feel free to skip the steps that require iOS 13 (there are just two at the end of the list).

Bugs & Feedback

If you find a bug or want to share a feature request after testing, you can comment on this post, ping one of us in the #mobile room on WordPress.org Slack, or head straight GitHub and open an issue—please see “Where to Report” below.

What to Test

To prepare:

  • Create a new Apple ID with two-factor authentication enabled to use for testing.
  • Go to My Site > Settings > Use Block Editor to enable the block editor for new posts.

To test:

  1. Block Editor: create and publish post using all of the available blocks (Paragraph, Heading, Image, Video, Lists, Separator, Page Break, Quote, More) and check that each one works as expected.
  2. 12377 Go to My Site and pull to refresh many times to try to get duplicate sites to show. If you can see duplicates, either pull to refresh or wait for a bit for the site to sync and the duplicates should go away.
  3. 12287 Go to Profile and notice the Notifications Settings option is no longer there. Go to Notifications and tap the cog icon at top right. Make some changes to your notifications settings and ensure they work as expected.
  4. 12363 Go to My Site > Settings > Time Zone and choose a timezone other than your device timezone and not UTC. Go to My Site > Stats > Days and make sure the site timezone setting is displayed correctly.
  5. 12303 Create a new post, add a title, add an image, save as a draft, go to More > Preview and make sure the image loads in the preview.
  6. 12107 Go to Profile > Help & Support and test the Contact Us form. Try sending logs both as an attachment and via copy/paste.
  7. 12305 Log out, tap “Log in”, a button view should appear with the following options: “Continue with Apple” (only if you have iOS 13), “Continue with WordPress.com”, “Continue with Google”, and “Or log in by entering your site address.” Check that each login flow works as expected.
  8. 12336 (requires iOS 13) Log out, tap “Log In”, select “Continue with Apple” and follow the prompts to Sign In With Apple.
  9. 12379 (requires iOS 13) Go to Settings > Display & Brightness and tap Dark to switch to Dark Mode. Browse around in the app. Does anything look wrong when in Dark Mode? Try editing a few posts that contain blocks using the block editor and a few posts without blocks using the default editor. Please post general Dark Mode problems/screenshots to the comments on 12320.

You can find all other changes/fixes and details in the related PRs targeting WordPress-iOS 13.2 and gutenberg-mobile 1.11.

What to Test

To prepare:

  • Create test accounts at LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Twitter for testing Sharing connections.
  • Have an Author or Subscriber user role setup for at least one test site.
  • Add some files to a WordPress.com test site and click to download them while logged out to generate some stats for testing the new File Downloads section in Stats.

  • Go to My Site > Settings > Use Block Editor to enable the block editor for new posts.

To test:
