Apple Seeds Second iOS 12, macOS 10.14 Mojave, tvOS 12 & watchOS 5 Betas to Devs

Apple released today the second beta of its forthcoming iOS 12, macOS Mojave 10.14, and tvOS 12 operating systems, which are now available for testing for registered developers.

Coming two weeks after the release of the first beta builds, iOS 12 beta 2 (16A5308e), macOS 10.14 Mojave beta 2 (18A314h), and tvOS 12 beta 2 (16J5303e) builds are now available for installation on all devices running the first beta. Registered developers can update their devices right now to install the new betas.

Those new to iOS 12, macOS Mojave 10.14, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5 beta testing can download the beta profiles from the Download page of the Apple Developer account on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch devices. The new beta builds can be installed on any device that supports iOS 11.

At the moment of writing, Apple didn't update the watchOS 5 operating system, which remains at the beta 1 build that the Cupertino, California-based company re-released last week on June 11 after pulling the initial build released on June 4, 2018, due to several reports of bricked Apple Watch devices during the update process.
"First public beta of iOS 12, macOS Mojave 10.14, and tvOS 12 expected next week"

If you don't have an Apple Developer account, but you want to install the beta versions of Apple's upcoming iOS 12, macOS Mojave 10.14, and tvOS 12 operating system on your devices, you'll have to wait a little longer for the first public beta release, which we expect to be released early next week or at the end of this week.

The second beta release of iOS 12, macOS 10.14 Mojave, and tvOS 12 resolves numerous issues that were discovered since the previous beta, but they also introduce lots of new ones that Apple lists in the internal release notes on its Apple Developer website, so make sure you read them before installing the new betas.

Update: It would appear that Apple also released the second beta of its watchOS 5 operating system for Apple Watch devices, though the beta profile offered for download from the Apple Developer website if for the first beta release, which could suggest Apple is careful not to brick devices.
