In early December, Apple officially released iOS 12.1.1, along with updates for the other major platforms as well.
Update x2: Apple today seeded the corresponding public betas of iOS 12.1.2, tvOS 12.1.2, and macOS Mojave 10.14.3. They are now available.

Now, Apple is moving forward with the next planned update to its mobile operating system, along with an incoming update for its smartwatch platform as well. Apple has officially seeded the first developer betas for iOS 12.1.2 and watchOS 5.1.3. As the version numbers suggest, these are minor updates in the grand scheme of things, with the primary focus this time around being bug fixes for issues that have cropped up since the public launch of iOS 12.1.1 and watchOS 5.1.2.
The new software will also likely include performance tweaks behind-the-scenes, ironing out any other general issues.
While it’s likely that these new betas will be minor in scale, it’s also not impossible that Apple slips in a new feature as well. For instance, watchOS 5.1.2 welcomed the arrival of the highly anticipated ECG app for the Apple Watch Series 4 (which already may have saved a life). And iOS 12.1? That brought with it Group FaceTime after a lengthy wait for that particular feature.
As a result, if it is discovered that Apple has included any major new features to the mix, we will update this post accordingly. We will also update this post when/if Apple seeds developer betas for tvOS and macOS Mojave as well.
Update: Apple has also seeded the first developer betas for macOS Mojave and tvOS 12.
Apple has seeded the first developer beta of macOS 10.14.3 Mojave to registered developers. In addition to that, Apple has also seeded the corresponding developer beta of tvOS 12.1.2 as well. Registered developers can update their devices beginning today.
