Today, Apple officially seeded the first developer beta of tvOS 12.3 and macOS Mojave 10.14.5. This update is more than likely going to be minor in scale, especially considering the last public update for tvOS was minor as well. However, it is possible that Apple is going to release some forward facing features for the end user at some point during the beta seed process.

For instance, Apple recently announced a brand new, revamped Apple TV app and TV Channels. (Along with Apple TV+.) It is possible that tvOS 12.3 will lay the groundwork for that public launch later this year.

To update tvOS’s beta, developers need to have an Xcode profile to install the software on the set-top box. tvOS 12.3 is designed specifically for the fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV units.

To update macOS to the latest beta, developers simply need to open System Preferences –> Software Update and follow the onscreen instructions.

And finally, to update to watchOS 5.2.1, developers need to make sure that the Apple Watch is connected to the iPhone and within range, has at least 50% battery lie, and is connected to the charger.

If it is discovered that any new features have been added to tvOS 12.3, we will update this post accordingly.
