iOS 12

Apple today released the fifth beta of iOS 12.2, watchOS 5, tvOS 12.2, and macOS 10.14.4 to developers.

There’s no word on what changes the latest iOS 12.2 beta releases brings, though considering the amount of changes introduced in the last few beta releases, it is unlikely that the latest beta brings anything new.

Apple will likely release iOS 12.2 towards the end of this month once it puts the AirPods 2 and new iPads on sale so this beta release should focus more on stability and bug fixes.

iOS 12.2 will introduce a number of new changes and changes including expanding Apple News in Canada, new Animojis including shark and giraffe, HomeKit TV support and controls, a new AirPlay icon, and more.

To update to iOS 12.2, developers will need to make sure that their supported iOS devices are registered properly. Once that’s done, it’s as simple as opening Settings –> General –> Software Update and then following the onscreen instructions.

To update to the latest developer beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.4, developers simply need to open the System Preferences –> Update Software on registered and supported computers.

To update to the latest beta of watchOS 5.2, developers need to make sure that the Apple Watch is connected to the charger, that the battery has at least 50 percent remaining, and that it is connected and within range of the iPhone. On the iOS device, open the Watch app and tap on General –> Software Update.

To update to the latest beta version of tvOS, developers need to run the necessary Xcode profile.
