Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming iOS 12.4 update to developers, almost one week after seeding the first iOS 12.4 beta, and two weeks 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.

There were no new features discovered in the first iOS 12.4 beta, 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 second 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, which is expected to be introduced at WWDC in June.

Update: The second beta of iOS 12.4 is also available for public beta testers.

84MB update on my Xs... looks like a quick fix for something.
No clue what... Beta 1 has been stable for me.

My iPhone X has had nothing but issues with 12.3; all beta versions and release version. I'm hoping 12.4 fixes some of the hanging and crashing I've been experencing.

My guess is, this is a hotfix beta since there were some hang up and lock ups. Mainly stemming from carplay that some experienced with the previous release.

I'm honestly almost loosing count with updates, though most have been fine.
Not really taking any advantage from t.v. App in Uk.

Apple Card now that could be interesting if and when I behave myself enough to apply -in a few years time.

Have been using 12.4 beta 1 on SE and it is as good as final. No hiccups or bugs encountered.

That must be very frustrating. My iPad Air 2 has had no issues with any beta or full release - so far!

My iPhone 7 never notified for a 12.4 Beta 1...Last thing to download was 12.3 Beta @ 2gb+...
This just showed up and is 2.4gb for 12.4 Beta 2. Interesting to me.
