As expected, Apple released the first beta versions of its upcoming iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12 operating systems to registered app developers with a paid and active Apple Developer account.
Earlier today, Apple unveiled the iOS 12, macOS 10.14 Mojave, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5 operating systems and their new features/enhancements, promising to release the first beta versions to developers after the keynote presentation. And so it did, as devs can now download the new beta software versions on their registered devices.
If you have a paid Apple Developer account, log in to your account and access the Downloads section. There, grab the new iOS 12 beta 1 (16A5288q), macOS Mojave 10.14 beta 1 (18A293u), tvOS 12 beta 1 (16J5283n) or watchOS 5 beta 1 (16R5283q) profiles and install them on your devices. After that, you'll be able to download the new betas via OTA updates.
iOS 12, macOS 10.14, and tvOS 12 Public betas arrive on June 25, 2018
Apple said that it would release the first public beta versions of its upcoming iOS 12, macOS 10.14, and tvOS 12 operating systems later this month on June 25. Only then, public beta testers that don't have a paid Apple Developer account will be able to test drive Apple's new operating systems on their devices.
Until then, we expect Apple to release at least one more developer betas of iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5, which means that new public beta versions will have slight delay compared to the developer betas. The final releases of iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5 should hit the streets later this year in September.
Meanwhile, Apple works on the iOS 11.4.1, macOS 10.13.6, tvOS 11.4.1, and watchOS 4.3.2 software updates, which are also in beta development. Developers running these beta versions will have to remove the beta profile from their devices and install the new iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12, or watchOS 5 beta profiles.
