Apple just released iOS 12.4 beta 2 for developers and the general public. So far, it appears that all the changes are behind the scenes getting ready for the introduction of the Apple Card.
The first fairly significant update to iOS in months is available now for the general public to update. iOS 12.2 will have a scattering of new features, not just the bug fixes and tweaks in recent updates.
The end of beta testing for this version could bring new iPad and iPod models. And AirPods 2 as well.
After seeding new beta versions of iOS and macOS on Monday, there are already replacements. The team at Apple responsible for updating iPhone, iPad, and Mac clearly started the year off in high gear.
This is the forth version of these betas, and the fast pace of new releases may be because they only offer bug fixes.
Apple just released the third beta versions of iOS 12.1.3 and macOS Mojave 10.14.3 to developers and the public. The same is true for a new tvOS 12.1.2 beta. Only developers got access to the new watchOS 5.1.3 beta introduced today, though.
But don’t get your hopes up for exciting new features.
There’s always another version of iOS in the pipeline. Just a few days after iOS 12.1.1 brought improvements to FaceTime and Face ID, the public can now download the first beta of the upcoming replacement.
Apple is equally diligent about macOS updates. The initial beta version of macOS Mojave 10.14.3 also just debuted to the general public.
The public just got their hands on the third beta of iOS 12.1.1, which developers were able to access to this morning. This doesn’t bring new features, but makes some tweaks.
Developers can also download macOS 10.12.2 beta 3, tvOS 12.1.1 beta 3, and watchOS 5.2.1 beta 2.
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.
The iPhone and iPad operating system pre-release version seeded only to developers yesterday is now available to everyone. iOS 12.1.1 beta 1 includes tweaks to current features but no new ones.
The public also got access to tvOS 12.1.1 beta 1 today.
Apple has settled into a steady pace of seeding to developers betas of its operating systems. Near the beginning of each week, expect updated pre-release versions of iOS 12.1, watchOS 5.1, and tvOS 12.1. Today is the fourth round.
These include some hotly-anticipated features, but leave Apple Watch Series 4 users up on the air.
