Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 12.1.2 to Developers With 'Bug Fixes and Improvements'

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 12.1.2 update to developers, five days after releasing iOS 12.1.1, an update that introduced a revamped FaceTime layout, re-added Live Photos for FaceTime, and brought Haptic Touch for notifications on iPhone XR.

Apple's release notes state that iOS 12.1.2 "contains bug fixes and improvements," so this appears to be a minor update.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.1.2 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

We'll update this post if we discover any notable changes.

Still waiting for Apple to really leverage that haptic engine. It's entirely possible that with some effort, users could drive their XRs around like little RC cars.

Any ideas how the iOS 13 going to look like? I am tired of the same looking homepage already.
I am not a betting man, but I'd guess it's going to look very similar to iOS 12.

Time to put the beta profile back on my devices. Took it off to get the ECG.

Somehow get the feeling you recycled this one various times already? ;)

My question is, if I install this beta does it disable my ECG again?
Nope, working just fine.

iPhone 8 running 11.4 just fine. OK to update or will i encounter battery issues? Maybe just wait for 12.3 ? No need for the emoji updates on my end.
Honestly iOS 12 is just better than iOS 11 no matter the version. I’m using a 7 Plus and battery life is fine. iOS 12 is also much snappier.

11 had great features but was one of the worst releases due to bugs especially after iOS 10’s quality.
