Apple Releases iOS 12 beta 12 Update To Fix ‘New iOS Update’ Alert

Apple iOS 12 beta 12 Update

Apple is currently releasing the twelfth beta of an upcoming iOS 12 update to developers for testing purposes. This is coming four days after the eleventh beta was released and more than two months after introducing the new software.

The new update is available to registered developers to download from Apple’s Developer Center. The new iOS 12 beta update is also available to developers over-the-air after installing the proper certificate. The update is an emergency bug fix to the update alert bug that began popping up on user’s screen. Users were being prompted to update to a “new iOS update” every time they unlocked their phone or dismissed Notification Center.

iOS 12 brings several major new features, with Apple revamping the operating system from top to bottom to make iPhones and iPads, especially the older models, faster and more responsive.

The Update also include:

Podcasts app now shows Now Playing indicator on currently playing chapters (chapter support is new to iOS 12)
New splash screen for updated Voice Memos app
New splash screen for Screen Time in Settings, includes Down Time walkthrough for parents
