Apple seeds third beta of iOS 12.4 to developers

Apple is looking to launch iOS 12.4 soon. Before it does that, though, the company has its typical developer beta routine to finish. Ahead of the public launch later this year, Apple is seeding another beta of iOS 12.4 to developers.

Apple on Tuesday seeded the third beta of iOS 12.4 to developers. For those registered as a developer with the company, the new software can be downloaded and installed as an over-the-air update on supported devices. It can also be downloaded by heading to Settings –> General –> Software Update.

Up to this point, there have not been any new major discoveries made with the developer betas of iOS 12.4. However, the expectation is that Apple is gearing up to launch the Apple Card alongside iOS 12.4 later this summer. Some had expected iOS 12.4 to launch before Apple got around to kicking off this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, but considering that starts on Monday, June 3 and we’re only just now getting the fourth developer beta, that might not be the case.

If Apple does add any new features to the latest developer beta, we will update this post accordingly.

The last big update to iOS was version 12.3. That update only added one major new feature to the mobile operating system, bringing with it the revamped Apple TV app and new Channels feature. Apple did update iOS 12.3 to version 12.3.1 recently, which brought with it fixes for VoLTE and Messages.

Looking ahead, iOS 13 is said to be introducing a new, baked-in Dark Mode with the platform update, along with plenty of other new additions.

If you spot any new features or changes within the latest developer beta of iOS 12.4, let us know in the comments below.

Do you run beta software, whether it’s iOS, apps, or games, on your personal device? Or do you wait for the public launch before trying any new software out?
