I will be honest I think roblox just does this. I don’t know if roblox just accepts its engines lighting update.
I have seen this with some of my builds at first I assumed it was just z fighting or gaps in parts.

Experienced this bug plenty of times, I suspected that it was dependent on quality level (rendering detail differences) but that wasn’t the case, as it happened on quality level 10 multiple times.

A fix would be really useful, as it happens universally.

It’s a known issue

Hello! Are you still experiencing this issue? Thanks!

The issue specific to shadow flickering has been fixed. Future lighting on iOS is still problematic in a number of visually annoying ways, but more usable now with this specific bug addressed.
