Bug: 'Tap Camera Preview for Live View' disables after every app update

Each time there is an iOS update for the Ring app, the ‘Tap Camera Preview for Live View’ setting is changed to disabled, despite it being enabled prior to the update. This has been happening for months, and each time I go back into each of my cameras and enable the option, only to have it disabled again for each camera upon the next app update.

Is there a formal way to submit a bug report for this behavior or is this the best spot to do so? Currently on iOS 14.7.1 but this has been an issue throughout several iOS 14 updates.

This is still happening - can this please get fixed?

This happens to me too and it’s pretty frustrating.

Same thing has been happening to me for quite a while. Incredibly annoying that this isn’t fixed!

Hi neighbors! I’d be happy to check with my team on this after gathering more information. Can you please share the following information:

  • Ring app version
  • Whether you’re on iOS or Android, and which OS version you have
  • The make and model of your smartphone or tablet

This information will help narrow down any common factors that could be related to what you’re experiencing.

I have an iPhone 13. I’m on the most recent version of everything (iOS and Ring app). This has been an ongoing problem with the app for a very long time now.

Thank you!! I did not realize what was causing all my cameras to constantly reset to disabled for tap camera for preview, but it makes sense it’s after an app update. It is incredible frustrating, especially since I have 14 cameras! I have to go into EVERY SINGLE one EVERY time there’s an update to change the setting back. Incredibly frustrating!!

Please fix this Ring, it is the most annoying part of the app. Stop changing my preferences! Every time there is an update, it’s so annoying having to go through 5 devices and reset a setting a want. Please fix this, no other settings change on update so why this one.
