Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming iOS 12.1.3 update to developers, three weeks after releasing the last beta and a little over three weeks after releasing iOS 12.1.2, an update that focused on bug fixes for the eSIM feature and changed certain iPhone features in China after a Chinese court found that some iPhones infringe on Qualcomm patents.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.1.3 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

The third iOS 12.1.3 beta is technically the second beta, but because iOS 12.1.3 includes the same updates that were supposed to be included in the iOS 12.1.2 beta that was released earlier, Apple released the initial iOS 12.1.3 as a second beta rather than a first beta.

Apple seeded one beta of iOS 12.1.2 before tweaking the software to include some emergency bug fixes and the aforementioned software changes in China, rushing the update out and pushing content originally planned for iOS 12.1.2 to iOS 12.1.3 instead.

iOS 12.1.3 will mark the fourth update to iOS 12. We don't yet know what features are included, and no major changes were found in the original iOS 12.1.2 beta that was the precursor to iOS 12.1.3 or the first beta labeled 12.1.3. As a 12.x.x update, iOS 12.1.3 likely focuses on minor changes, bug fixes, and operating system tweaks. If we find anything new in the "third" iOS 12.1.3 beta, we'll update this post.

Update: Apple has also made a new beta of iOS 12.1.3 available to public beta testers.

The betas for 12.1.3 have been super-smooth for me, on an iPhone X, except for one thing: memory management. It seems like apps close out and need reloaded upon returning to them, much more quickly than a month ago. I hope this gets better, and that the 2019 iPhones double the RAM. It's time!

With the reports of some folks having issues with connection management (data and calls) with 12.1.2 I've been waiting on .3 to get through the door before getting beyond 12.1.1. So this is good news.

You want the new iPhones to have 8gb of RAM?

Interestingly, this latest update is showing in Software Update on my iPhone but not my iPad, though both are enrolled in the Public Beta program and both are running the previous iOS 12.1.3 beta.

When can I view Nationwide mortgage again :)
Hopefully via tonight's beta though probably not until next final version.
Interesting though apart from limited apps working Xs has been relatively trouble free across betas.

FWIW I just downloaded and installed it on my iPad.

Urgh. Glad I'm not the only one.

Does anyone else get the feeling that they’re doing so many bug fix updates in iOS 12 because they are going to have a really stable send off for everything that isn’t 6S and above?

So many bug fix updates? Seems like it really isn't that much more or less than in other versions.

We’re about a third of the way through the lifecycle of iOS 12 and we are not even on 12.2. The number of updates isn’t any more, but the focus seems to be on fixing things as opposed to adding features.

On the other hand the number of bug fix updates that we've had so far is less than some other versions have had at this time.

This of this nature have had some variety one way or another throughout the releases and don't necessarily mean much one way or another.

And there would be nothing wrong with that. They have no obligation to support iPhone 6 anymore
