The iOS 12.1.2 update is Apple’s next upgrade. The iOS 12.1.2 release date is still a mystery, but we expect it to land in the next few weeks as Apple works to fix bugs and patch up security issues.
The only known update in Apple’s iOS pipeline is iOS 12.1.2. The company recently released the first iOS 12.1.2 beta and it’s available for all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models capable of running iOS 12.
Apple’s iOS 12.1.2 update represents the third point update. It’s not as big as Apple’s iOS 12.1 milestone update or iOS 12.1.1 (at least not yet), but iOS 12.1.2 will likely bring some crucial fixes and tweaks to the company’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
iOS 12.1.2 Release Date
Apple hasn’t laid out a release plan for the iOS 12.1.2 update. iOS updates typically stay in beta for several weeks of testing so we probably won’t see the update roll out this week. In fact, there’s a good chance iOS 12 users will have to wait until next year. We expect iOS 12.1.2 to emerge in mid-to-late January.
With an iOS 12.1.2 release date on the horizon, now is a great time to start preparing for its release. In this guide we’ll outline some tips and tricks that could come in handy as we close in on the release of the next version of iOS 12.
How to Prepare for the iOS 12.1.2 Release Date
The iOS 12.1.2 release date is unknown, but don't let that stop you from preparing yourself and your device(s) for its release.
Use this time to cleanup the storage on your device. Go into your device's storage and delete the files (photos, apps, etc) you don't need anymore. Cleaning up your device could also improve your device's performance and it'll help make room for iOS 12.1.2.
You should also start backing up the data you store on your device(s). If you don't know where to start, you'll want to dig into our guides covering iCloud backups and iTunes backups. Data loss issues are pretty rare, but there's always a chance something gets lost in the shuffle as you transition to a new version of iOS.
iOS 12.1.2 probably won't log you out of your apps and services, but we recommend having your Apple ID/iCloud/third-party app login information handy just in case.
This might seem tedious, but a little prep work will help you avoid issues before, on, and after the iOS 12.1.2 release date.
