Apple Seeds First Public Betas of iOS 12.1.2, macOS Mojave 10.14.3, and tvOS 12.1.2

Apple today seeded the first beta of iOS 12.1.2 to public beta testers, one day after seeding the same beta to developers and six days after the release of the iOS 12.1.1 update with expanded eSIM support and many other new features.


iPhone and iPad users enrolled in the free Apple Beta Software Program will receive the iOS 12.1.2 beta over-the-air in Settings > General > Software Update after installing the necessary configuration profile from Apple's beta site.

iOS 12.1.2 looks to be a minor update focused on "bug fixes and improvements," according to Apple's release notes.

Apple also seeded the first betas of macOS Mojave 10.14.3 and tvOS 12.1.2 to public beta testers today. The macOS beta can be installed using Apple's macOS Public Beta Access Utility, while the tvOS beta can be installed by navigating to Settings > System > Software Updates > Get Public Beta Updates.

Apple says macOS Mojave 10.14.3 contains "bug fixes and improvements," while the tvOS 12.1.2 is likely a very minor update.

Best to change out IPhones every two years to avoid battery problems.


You've got to be kidding... although Apple loves you I'm sure.

is this real news or fake news? i'm downloading now...

I don't think "EverythingApplePro" are a news organisation; so how can it be either real or fake news?

iOS 12.1.1 appears to have drastically reduced my battery charge retainment on my iPhone 7, so I hope this takes care of that issue. My iPhone 7 now burns through the battery about 3 times faster than on 12.1.0.

Did the same on my 7+.

Heads up that EverythingApplePro reported that 12.1.2 beta 1 causes the app switcher to misbehave.

Monday I decided to turn off Siri, and since then the battery keeps its charge much longer. My iPhone 7 still drains the battery slower than it did with 12.1.0, but not the 3x it was doing with Siri. It is probably about 20% faster drain now. Perhaps there is a bug related to Siri in the 12.1.1 update.

How do you turn off Siri? I thought my battery was just dying, but it makes sense that it’s the update doing it...


Go to Settings-->Siri and Search, then scroll down to the Ask Siri section and turn off the "Listen for 'Hey Siri'" and "Press Home for Siri" options.
