It seems we are very close to the launch of new iPhone(s) and Apple officially releasing pre-release software into the public domain. With that in mind, Apple has as usual, now issued beta 9 of iOS 12, alongside beta 8 of macOS Mojave, tvOS 12 and watchOS 5.0 into the testing community.
With each week that passes be we also have a new release of firmware into the developer community. Today is another day for another pre-release seed release.
iOS 12 beta 9
This is something where iOS 12 starts feeling like a finished product ahead of its release into the general public domain next month. With the release of the firmware, Apple introducing a number of new and notable changes and improvements without going forward and focusing on a total overhaul. ARKit will be updated to version 2.0, the new Memoji feature is intended to enhance the existing Animoji offering. There is some new and revamped notification system. But, after recent announcements, there will be no FaceTime grouping for 32 people, unfortunately.
macOS 10.14 Mojave beta 8
This is where Apple is trying to go all out with MacOS Mojave. There is a new Stacks feature which should help with clearing up clutter and organizing files better on the desktop. Mac owners will also get a wonderful new Dark Mode to appease those individuals who have been crying out for this type of functionality. Mojave will also not feature the group FaceTime calling upgrade as per the iOS 12 release. However, it does set the scene for Project Marzipan which is bringing a lot of excitement to developers.
tvOS 12 beta 8
Apple TV owners exactly wanted some of the best tvOS features and are expecting from a product of this nature. tvOS is one of those platforms that there really isn’t a lot to say about. However, Apple has introduced support for Dolby Atmos for Apple TV 5 as well as introducing new additions for developers to be able to build a wonderful tvOS experience.
watchOS 5 beta 8
For Apple Watch owners, this update is something big one when concerned. It comes with great functionality like being also able to challenge others to Activity challenges as well as the integration of a brand new Podcasts app. It is, otherwise, filled with better features and improvements which make watchOS 5 an utter delight to use.
To those who are testing one or many of the platforms, all of the aforementioned are available right now for your testing pleasure as an OTA update from the device’s ‘Settings’ section itself, or directly as firmware download file from developer.apple.com.
