Apple iOS 12 with new tools now available

The developer beta softwares can only be downloaded from Apple's site for registered developers.

Apple has released the first ever iOS 12.1 public beta along with tvOS 12.1 public betas. The updates should be available as over-the-air (OTA) update soon.

The major change in iOS 12.1 is the return of Group FaceTime. It's not possible to install a backup of a device running iOS 12.1 onto an iPhone running iOS 12. With iOS 12, Apple has placed its focus on under-the-hood stability and performance improvements. This comes after various tidbits were noticed inside the first beta release of iOS 12.1 yesterday. The new software versions were announced in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Dual-SIM support for iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS will also be released.

The code in iOS 12.1 beta 1 also confirms that Apple is working on adding landscape support to Face ID.

There are no details as to what this new iPad might be like.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the USB-C iPad Pro models would ship with an 18W USB-C power adapter that enables fast charging.

The new Apple iPad Pro variants are speculated to launch by the end of this year.

In order to sign up for the newly released public beta, first of all head over to and sign in using the Apple ID which you are now using on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV. Both tablets are rumoured to ditch Touch ID and the home button in favor of FaceID. This is something that could become hugely useful if an iPad with Face ID were to arrive, something we've expected for a few weeks.
