Just a few days after rolling out iOS 12.1.2, Apple on Wednesday released the first beta for iOS 12.1.3. If you’re a developer, you can download the software as an over-the-update right now. A public beta will likely be released in the coming days.
MacRumors said today’s update includes the same content that was meant for the iOS 12.1.2 beta, so technically today’s release is labeled as a second beta.
“Apple appears to have tweaked iOS 12.1.2 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,” MacRumors said.
The reason Apple rushed out iOS 12.1.2 was to address a court ruling in China, which found the Cupertino company to be guilty of infringing on Qualcomm patents. The ruling meant many of Apple’s older iPhone models could no longer be sold in China, including the iPhone X.
If any major features show up in iOS 12.1.3, we’ll be sure to update this post.
