Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 12.4 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 12.4 update to developers, a few days after the launch of iOS 12.3, a major update that introduced Apple's revamped TV app.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.4 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

As a 12.x update, the new software may include more significant features than the smaller 12.x.x updates. iOS 12.4 will mark the the fourth major update to iOS 12 after iOS 12.3, which introduced a redesigned TV app with Apple's new Channels feature for subscribing to and watching third-party subscription content right in the TV app.

We don't yet know what we can expect to see in iOS 12.4, but we'll update this post as soon as we download the software and discover what's new. It's likely that this beta includes some Apple Card-related features, as the Apple Card is set to launch in the summer.

iOS 12.4 may be one of the last updates to the iOS 12 operating system as Apple transitions to iOS 13, which is expected to be introduced at WWDC in June.

So nothing is new? What is the point in constantly releasing updates with absolutely nothing new. Please Apple slow it down.
Bug fixes and minor tweaks at this point. Slow it down? By all means no, tweak away and fix the little nuances. if you want "new functionality" just wait for the full versions

Why on earth would you not want incremental updates every few months to address bugs as they are addressed rather than yearly windows of vulnerabilities?

This is the whole reason behind delta updates. To be able to release bug fixes faster. Some people cant be pleased no matter how hard you try.
