Developers received a fresh batch of new beta updates this morning, just in time for the holidays.

iOS 12.1.2 beta 1 was made available today, bringing a host of new fixes and improvements to the iPhone and iPad. Apple also came out with the first betas of macOS Mojave 10.14.3, watchOS 5.1.3 and tvOS 12.1.2.

Registered developers can grab the four new betas directly from Apple’s online developer portal. iOS 12.1.2 beta 1 can be installed as an over-the-air update once you add the proper installation profile to your phone.

What’s inside iOS 12.1.2?

Today’s iOS 12.1.2 beta update appears to mostly focus on under-the-hood changes. Release notes for the update don’t mention any major UI changes or new features, it mostly contains just bug fixes and improvements.

The other three betas for Apple TV, Mac and Apple Watch are also fairly minor and just add some fixes. Apple released iOS 12.1.1 added some improvements for FaceTime and Face ID. It also added support for eSIMs on the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
