    iOS 12.1.2 Beta 1 Release Notes

    New Features & Changes
    New Issues

    • Some user interface elements are inaccessible to VoiceOver in the “Electrocardiogram (ECG)” and “Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification” sections in Health > Health Data > Heart
    Remaining Issues
    • Mail notifications still broken, at least on secondary email accounts. (Sounds but not banners or badges)
    • Lock screen orientation glitch in the Control Center: If you have screen orientation lock enabled, and then change the state of "Increase Contrast" in Settings, for example enable it, your lock orientation icon will be fully white instead of red. Video: Here
    • Lock screen lock disappears: Swipe on the lockscreen for a few times, after some time, your lock status will disappear. Video: Here. If you happen to reproduce it while your phone is unlocking, you will get something like this, the notifications will get glitched.
    • Some apps like Google Maps and Clash Royale will lag on iPhone X and above: Open the affected app, for example Google Maps. Do not do anything else, just minimize your brightness to the lowest. Now, you will see the app's FPS number has been drastically decreased, try to do circles in the map, you will see it is laggy. To make it smooth again, you can: A) Start screen recording or B) Increase brightness.
    • Folder in Dock bug - swipe to widgets and then back to home screen: it will blink. Video: Here
    • Signal bars not updating on in car infotainment using either Bluetooth or CarPlay unless phone screen is on (XS and XS Max only, since iOS 12.0).
    Notification bugs:
    • Grouped notifications glitch - Expand, collapse and then expand again a grouped notification quickly, it will have a glitchy animation with DND. Video: Here
    • Notification Center bug: If you have a grouped notification in the notification center, make sure to delete till you have only one, then click the X next to the app and not the one next to "Notification Center". It will result in a glitch - Video: Here
    • Notification center missing background: Lock and unlock your phone. Then open an app, and quickly pull down the notification center. It won't have background for a few seconds.
    • If you have enough notifications to hide the time, then scroll down-up few times, the notifications will get glitched with the time. After you collapse the notifications, there will be a glitchy animation. Video: Here
    • On an iPhone X, XS, and XS Max, if your home screen have multiple pages, go to a different page other than main, then swipe up to get to your main page. After you quickly want to open anything in the Dock, you can't, you need to wait a few seconds to be able to do it. Video: Here
    • Lock screen time & lock status glitch: using your locked iPhone, swipe from right to left two times quickly. For the second swipe, your time and lock status will disappear. Video: Here
    • Landscape mode control center bug: Open anything in landscape mode, for example a YouTube video in full screen. Open your Control Center, swipe from right to left, then close CC. There will be a stuck bar at the top of your screen for a few seconds. Video: Here
    • App crash bug: Open the app switcher. Tap on an app, swipe it up to close, but while its closing tap on it - > glitchy crash. Video: Here
    • Adding the first widget in the available widgets list will have a glitchy animation. Video: Here
    • Safari: "add to home screen" - when there is just one home screen, it does not show the recently added icon. It does create a 2nd home screen page but when you swipe left the icon is missing. After a reboot or waiting for several minutes, the icon may appear.
    • Since iOS 11.4 still can’t initiate ‘album’ playback via Siri on the watch with music that is locally stored on phone.
    • When iCloud Keychain and text replacements are enabled, text replacement won’t be offered anymore when trying to login. The specific text replacement is overwritten with “Password”.
    • iMessage app sort order resets after a period of time from custom order to default order.
    • In Messages: using 3D Touch to Peak and Pop, or when rotating the screen orientation turns the iMessage app strip black (iPhone 7 only)
    • Sometimes, if you have no SIM inserted, you will see an old time to appear at the top of the screen. Video: Here
    • Opening app switcher in landscape mode will sometimes show old stuff that you did with the app before. Video: Here
    • On the home screen, scrolling to the second page, swiping up then holding the screen will cause the second page to disappear. Video: Here
    • Lockscreen blocking bug: Get to the passcode request page, then swipe up and down while not releasing the screen - this will cause the first line (1, 2, 3) to be unresponsive. Video: Here (I typed 1 to show that it was working)
    Resolved Issues
    Additional Notes
    • If you experience Setting crashes, it may be due to removal of stock apps.

    At this point it’s cheating, you must have a bot

    Just a full installer it would seem, which isn't really out of the ordinary for a first beta (in particular if coming from a public release).

    Weird that they wouldn't be working on 12.2 at this point

    Was 335mb for my XS Max. Are you coming from release or 12.1.1 beta 3?

    I’m sure they’re working on it, just not ready for us to get our hands on it just yet. With this beta coming out today, I’d guess we won’t see 12.2 betas until after the holidays.

    Pretty much a snoozer to have 2 x.x.x releases in a row. Hopefully, there will be some goodies in the x.x releases to come.

    They attribute a letter to the version number:
    12.0 = A
    12.0.1 = A (still on the same letter as it was a quick bugfix on the same branch probably)
    12.1 = B
    12.1.1 = C
    12.1.2 = D

    with a letter change, the numbering restarts at 0 (5000)

    From a Verizon perspective Carrier and Modem versions have not changed ... so for those hoping for LTE fixes ...

    Sure, just don't see the point in pushing fixes to another point update when you could wrap them into 12.2.
    --- Post Merged, Dec 10, 2018 ---
    My guess would be March
    --- Post Merged, Dec 10, 2018 ---
    Yup, I get that - my wording wasn't great. I just don't see the reason for a bunch of point updates.

    It's because you are on the release version of 5.1.2... the dev beta has a higher version number than the release one (16S46 for the release and 16S5046a for the dev one)

    edit: you should see it by now. just wait a bit more if it still doesn't show up

    Huh? Wasn’t the Modem firmware for 12.1.1 for the iPhone XS 1.02.18? With 12.1.2, it’s now 1.03.02 and carrier is 34.5.5 for me.
