Apple seeded the fourth beta of iOS 12.3 to developers this morning, just one week after the last beta was released. iOS 12.3 beta 4 brings with it a number of changes for iPhone and iPad, including changes to the Apple TV app, Wallet app tweaks and tons of bug fixes.

Update: The public can now also download iOS 12.3 beta 4, allowing anyone to test out the new features.

Developers can download iOS 12.3 beta 4 from Apple’s online developer portal. It can also be installed via an over-the-air update if you have the previous update, or by adding the proper installation profile to your iPhone or iPad.

What’s inside iOS 12.3?

Updates to the Apple TV app have been the biggest focus of iOS 12.3 as Apple prepares its push into the TV streaming market. The previous iOS 12.3 betas added a new splash screen to the Apple TV app. New channels, such as Epix, were also added. There’s also a new AI recommendation engine that suggests shows based on previous viewing habits.

iOS 12.3 also tweaks the Wallet app ahead of the launch of Apple Card this summer. Release notes for iOS 12.3 beta 4 don’t mention any major UI changes. The update likely focuses mostly on performance fixes as Apple readies it for launch. iOS 12.3 will probably be the last major update before Apple reveals iOS 13 at WWDC 2019 at the beginning of June. We’ll find out if there are any new surprises in it once we get it installed on our devices.

Along with the new iOS beta, Apple also dropped new betas for macOS, tvOS and watchOS. None of the changes in those updates are quite as exciting as iOS 12.3, but you can download them through Apple’s developer portal too.
