One and a half hours ago Apple introduced the first iOS 12.4 developer beta for testing, and Apple seems to be ready to release iOS 12.4 beta 3. We also expect Apple to release the other watchOS 5.3 beta today .
iOS 12.4 beta does not contain any visible changes for users, but there are some downsides for preparing iPhones and iPads for the Apple Card. The new credit card comes from Apple later this summer. We are also told that Apple employees are using the beta version to test the Apple card already.
iOS 12.4 is probably the first software release to support the Apple card in the Wallet app. Apple Card was first announced March 25 before the summer launch in the United States.
We update our coverage if any specific changes are detected in iOS 1
Apple also launched iOS 12.3 for all customers this month. The release includes the all-new Apple TV app with the new Apple TV channel feature to subscribe directly to video services. IOS 12.3 also supports AirPlay 2 for smart TVs that work with the Apple feature.
Apple's major developer conference starts in less than a week on June 3 in San Jose, where Apple will uncover iOS 13, watchOS 6 and macOS 10.15, and more. That means we'll probably see big new developer work the same day before iOS 12.4 is out of beta.
