Apple has officially seeded the first betas of iOS 12.3, macOS 10.14.5, watchOS 5.2.1 and tvOS 12.3 to public testers. The betas include the new TV app Apple unveiled on Monday, and registered testers can install the software via each platform’s respective OTA mechanism.
iOS 12.3 appears to be a minor update in scale, with the company focusing primarily on behind-the-scenes bug fixes and general overall improvements. There does not appear to be any major forward facing features for the end user being added to this version of the mobile OS.
To update, developers that have registered their supported iOS devices simply need to open Settings –> General –> Software Update and then follow the onscreen instructions.
It’s not expected that there will be any huge changes in macOS 10.14.5, although there are always the chances of something coming out of left field. Apple announced a raft of new services earlier this week and it’s possible moves are being made to support those already.
The arrival of watchOS 5.2 brought with it support for the newly refreshed AirPods as well as the ECG feature in Hong Kong and Europe. This new beta doesn’t look like it offers such grand improvements, although it’s still early days for those who have installed it. We’d expect more bug fixes and performance improvements rather than any big new features, but we’ll know better in a few days.
