Apple Seeds Seventh Beta of iOS 12.4 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the seventh beta of an upcoming iOS 12.4 update to developers, one week after seeding the sixth iOS 12.4 beta, and two months after releasing iOS 12.3, a major update that introduced a 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. Public Beta testers can download the beta over the air.


There were no new features discovered in the first six iOS 12.4 betas, so it's not entirely clear what's coming in the update. As a more significant 12.x update, it's possible that the update is focusing on a feature that's not yet available -- the Apple Card.

Apple is planning to release the Apple Card in the summer, so iOS 12.4 could be the update that prepares the iOS operating system for that launch, adding hidden features that will be unlocked when the update becomes available to the public. If we find new features in the seventh beta of iOS 12.4, we'll update this post.

iOS 12.4 may be one of the last updates to the iOS 12 operating system as Apple transitions to iOS 13, set to launch this September, and as we are now at beta seven, the update could see a release in the very near future.

If you want good rewards, why are you even considering this card??? The rewards are terrible

They aren't terrible for a no-fee card. I don think it's the absolute best, either. But to characterize it as terrible is simply dishonest.

2.8 gigs on iPhone X. This must be the release candidate. Wouldn’t surprise me if they release this one as GM a few days from now or early next week.

What a joke! I am currently waiting for the new software as i cannot restore my new iphone xs max from my current iphone 8 plus! Last software update was only for this model so I got screwed!


Have you tried updating your 8+ to iOS 12.4 beta, backup and update the XS Max software to iOS 12.4 beta and then restore your backup?
