First iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 betas now available to public testers, first watchOS 5.2.1 beta out for developers

Apple on Thursday released the first betas of iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 to public testers. The betas include the new TV app Apple unveiled on Monday, and registered testers can install the software via each platform’s respective OTA mechanism.

We got a glimpse of the new TV app in yesterday’s developer betas, and it seems to be as good as advertised. It includes a new UI with better recommendations, support for more streaming apps, and Apple’s new Channels offering.

For the most part, public betas are identical to their developer counterparts, so we don’t anticipate there being any notable differences. Nevertheless, we are installing the new software now, and will be sure to report back if we spot any changes.

Update: Apple has also released the first developer beta of watchOS 5.2.1.
