Apple continues to beta test its incoming updates for its major software platforms, from iOS to tvOS.
Apple today seeded the third developer beta of iOS 12.1.1, macOS 10.14.2 Mojave, and tvOS 12.1.1 to developers, along with the second developer beta of watchOS 5.1.2. As the version number for each platform suggests, these are minor updates that will not be adding any major forward facing features to the end user when the software has its public launch at some point in the near future. The new software is primarily meant to address any lingering bugs and issues behind-the-scenes, adding bug fixes and performance enhancements.
To update to iOS 12.1.1, developers that already have their supported iOS devices registered with the developer program can simply update to the new software via the Software Update option within the Settings app. It can also be downloaded and installed via the official Developer Portal.
Meanwhile, macOS 10.14.2 Mojave is available now as a free download for developers who have already registered their supported macOS devices. It can be downloaded and installed from the Software Update option within the System Preferences app on the registered Mac. It can also be downloaded by way of the official Developer Center.
For registered developers, tvOS 12.1.1 can be installed by way of a profile using Xcode.
To update watchOS watchOS 5.1.2, you will need to make sure that the device has at least 50 percent battery life, is connected to its charger, and connected to your iPhone as well. You’ll then need to go into the Watch app on your iOS device, open Settings and General, then “Software Update”. Simply follow the instructions from then on.
At the time of publication it is not known what specific changes Apple has included with the latest beta seeds. However, if there are any major new additions discovered, or any new surprise features added to the mix, we will update this post accordingly. For those within the public beta test program, Apple will more than likely seed a corresponding public beta of select software in the days ahead.
