iOS 12.4: What’s New

Fix for Walkie-Talkie App

For Apple Watch, the iOS 12.4 and watchOS 5.3 update fixes the eavesdropping bug and re-enables the Walkie-Talkie app.

Apple News+ Improvements

After updating to iOS 12.4, you will be able to access your downloaded issues from the My Magazines section.

You can also clear your downloaded magazines by clearing the history.

No Apple Card Release

iOS 12.4 was expected to mark the launch of Apple Card but that is nowhere to be seen. It is possible that Apple could officially announce the release of the Apple Card later this week.


For watchOS 5.3 released alongside iOS 12.4, Apple expanded the ECG app support to Canada and Singapore. The update also fixes the Walkie-Talkie app’s eavesdropping bug.
