There are new iOS 12 beta versions for developers and the public, as the same is true for macOS Mojave.

Developers and the public just got their hands on the second betas of iOS 12.1.1 and tvOS12.1.1.  Not to be left out, macOS 10.12.2 beta is also available to everyone.

In addition, developers got their vey first gander at watchOS 5.1.2.

Apple is constantly tweaking its various operating systems, so the beta process never ends. But that doesn’t mean big changes are always in the offing.

All of these updates are just “bug fixes” with a few other small improvements.  Which isn’t surprising, as major new updates for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, and Apple TV came out in September, followed by a second round of OS updates just last week.

Get the new iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS beta versions

Getting access to iOS 12.1.1, macOS 10.12.2, and tvOS12.1.1 just requires joining the Apple Beta Software Program. It’s free and available to anyone who wants to try out pre-release versions. Just be aware that betas are expected to include bugs. Install with caution.

However, only developers who have paid a $99 annual fee get access to watchOS 5.1.2. And it’s going to stay that way, as this operating system isn’t part of the public beta software program. Still, the public and console themselves with the seven new Watch face complications that debuted earlier this week.
