Despite this, users promise to release an update with the security patch applied this week, it seems that Apple’s in no hurry to implement it, focusing on the testing iOS 12.2. Apparently, so the company today released the second beta update. It is now available for download for the owners of compatible devices with the account of the developers as in the air, as from the relevant section on the official Apple website.

iOS 12.2 is the so-called functional update, but contains a minimum of landmark innovations and many insignificant. But in this version the developers managed to find mention of at least five new Apple products.

What Apple will unveil at the presentation in March 2019

  • iPad the seventh generation;
  • iPad Mini the fifth generation;
  • iPod Touch, seventh generation;
  • AirPods second generation;
  • Apple News Magazines.

The most interesting novelties from this list are the new iPod Touch and Apple News Magazines. But if the updated player is unlikely to surprise outstanding appearance or advanced hardware (if you believe the content of the leaks, iPod Touch couldn’t even Touch ID, not to mention the Face ID), the service magazine subscriptions looks extremely curious. Largely due to the fact that this is the first subscription service of the company issued after Apple Music.

When will iOS 12.2

Given the availability in iOS 12.2 mentions of new devices, it can be assumed that the release upgrade will take place in March. Traditionally, October is the month when Apple holds a presentation in which represents a new generation of low cost iPad and also other products, depending on the orientation of the event. For example, in 2016, the company presented the iPhone SE, and last – budget analogue of the “smart” pen, Apple, Pencil.

Updated: also released the second beta version of MacOS 10.14.4 and tvOS 12.2
