Banking on iOS 16

It’s that time of year again!

The first Developer Beta of iOS 16 should be released tonight, after the WWDC keynote. The first public beta should follow some time in late June or early July.

In previous years, I have compiled a list of which apps were working and which weren’t, which many people found helpful, so I thought it might be a good idea to curate a list of which banking apps are working under the new release at the current time, which we can update throughout the beta period.

Generally, almost every app other than banking app will work fine - it’s just that banking apps do often block themselves from loading on “unrecognised” releases as a security measure.

Thank you, it’s a standard list I’ve kept since the iOS 14 beta days (with crowdsourced updates from this community and others)!

I can confirm that Monzo, Chase UK, Starling and Virgin Money all seem to be working on iOS 16 beta 1

@SebH can you make this a wiki please so we can update the list?

I have already messaged @AlanDoe to ask, but we all know how busy he often is!

I’m sure he will get round to it soon - in the meantime, if everyone could please post in the thread I’ll update the main post as quickly as I can.

At the bottom-right of your first post in the topic, click/tap on the ‘Spanner’ icon (if you don’t see the Spanner, click/tap on the 3-dots first to reveal it), then click/tap on ‘Make Wiki’

I don’t think I have the right trust level, as it doesn’t seem to be an option there?

Ah, yes. It’s never easy…

A user who made the post, so long as they have Level 3+ trust, can make their own post into a Wiki
You have Level 4 trust, so can ‘admin edit’ posts by other users.

I tried to do the same with my Level 3 trust level on @SebH’s initial post and failed miserably.

I really need that Level 4…

Well, we are always hiring :sunglasses::joy:

Edit: based on other users profiles it looks possible to obtain in other ways, though not sure where to see what this involves.

Thanks for sorting it out!

Damn the fact I’ve lost my level 3 for not posting enough lately, and dropped down to level 2. Haha.

No surprise, HSBC usually block their apps entirely on .0 beta releases!
