    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.

    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.

    this actually fixes a "crippling bug" for new iPad Pro users who run cpu-intensive audio/music generation apps.

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

    I always use the latest iOS to prevent issues. Best to change out IPhones every two years to avoid battery problems.

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

    EverythingApplePro is a you-tuber who puts out detailed videos about the features and bug fixes in every beta release and every final release of iOS, often within a couple hours of release.

    Apple's always offered battery replacement services. Nothing new.

    Dear Mac fans,

    am I the only encountering the bug in Mojave, which makes the stock Mail app go fullscreen on its own every once and a while? I couldn't find a pattern yet when/why this occurs.

    I haven't found anything on this issue online.

    Has anyone here gone to the 10.14.3 Mojave beta? Curious to see how many spinning beachballs are still present...

    macOS is really buggy lately, I hope they act on my bug reports and panic logs.

    MacOS has been behind in updates and bug fixes for 4 to 6 years. Not sure why you expect that now.

    I have been wondering about this... I have lots of Apple devices and seems battery across the board is reduced. but it might have to deal with a) the wifi not sleeping or b) problems with sleep in general. I notice when waking the device from sleep the wifi is already up... before the 12.1.1 update it would take a half a second to connect (which leads me to believe that the device might not be sleeping correctly or the wifi is not sleeping as normal) curious if this update changes that back or????
