Apple releases third developer betas of iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2

Apple released a new round of developer betas today, seeding the third builds of iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2. The third developer beta for macOS 10.14.4 Mojave was released yesterday.

Most importantly, iOS 12.2 build 16E5201e resolves a Group FaceTime security flaw that allowed users to hear recipients audio before they even answered the call. For those not on the beta, this was solved in iOS 12.1.4. It also includes some other fixes, such as that the battery percentage no longer shows on the lock screen when the device isn't charging.

watchOS 5.2 had an issue where Siri didn't work in the Simulator, but that's now fixed, and there's nothing else in the release notes.

Finally, tvOS 12.2 now notes a new feature where developers can promote subscriptions. Apps will now have the ability to offer discounted priced for a duration of time for both existing and previously subscribed customers.

All of these updates are minor updates, and they'll likely be generally available next month. The bigger updates will be announced in June at WWDC.
