If you have the iOS 12 or watchOS 5 beta profile installed on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, you should get an OTA update notification soon.

Apple will likely also release the first public beta of iOS 12.1, watchOS 5.1, and tvOS 12.1 tomorrow for its public beta testers.

Update: iOS 12.1 beta 1 has been confirmed to reintroduce FaceTime Group video calling.
