The iOS 12.1.3 update is Apple’s next upgrade. The iOS 12.1.3 release date is still a mystery, but we expect it to land sometime in early 2019 as Apple works to fix bugs and patch up security issues.
Apple recently released its fourth iOS 12.1.3 beta and the latest release is available for all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models enrolled in Apple’s beta programs.
The iOS 12.1.3 beta is a continuation of the iOS 12.1.2 beta. Apple was forced to rush out an iOS 12.1.2 update to address issues in China.
iOS 12.1.3 Release Date
Apple hasn’t laid out a release plan for the iOS 12.1.3 update. iOS updates typically stay in beta for several weeks of testing so we might not see the update roll out this week.
That said, we expect iOS 12.1.3 to emerge sometime in mid-to-late January or perhaps sometime in early February after a few more betas.
With the iOS 12.1.3 release date now on the horizon, it’s a great time to start preparing yourself and your device 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 12.1.3 Release Date
The iOS 12.1.3 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 12.1.3.
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 12.1.3 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 12.1.3 release date.
