Apple will today seed the first beta of an upcoming iOS 12.4 beta 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. The new beta should be available at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time or 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Apple also plans to seed a new version of watchOS, watchOS 5.3.
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.
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.
