Developers and participants of the Apple Beta Software Program, it’s time to test more versions of Apple’s operating systems!
Apple today released the second test versions of iOS 12.1 (build 16B5068i), from macOS Mojave 10.14.1 (18B50c), from watchOS 5.1 (16R5568d) and the tvOS 12.1 (16J5584c) – two weeks after the arrival of the first ones, basically. In addition to them, Apple also released the second beta version of Xcode 10.1 (10O35n).
The versions are already available on the Apple developer portal and on the devices themselves (provided the devices are properly prepared to receive them). Remembering that, in the case of watchOS, it * is * not available for testing in the Apple Beta Software Program.
The new features to be painted on iOS 12.1, as we’ve already discussed, include support for Dual SIM on the XS / XS Max / XR iPhones, Group FaceTime (also on macOS, of course) and an option to adjust the depth of photos before beat them. There are also references to the functioning of Face ID in landscape mode (something that should be painted on new iPad Pro) and the synchronization of Memojis via iCloud. Let’s hope, too, that the Apple Watch Series 4 ECG is released – (at least in the US) along with the release of watchOS 5.1.
To the tests – and comment if other news paint in these second versions! ?

What’s new in watchOS 5.1!
As the MacRumors, the future watch operating system has a new display called «Color» («Color»). In it, users can choose from several color tones that basically occupy the entire screen of the device – this in the Apple Watch Series 4; in previous models, the display occupies only the central circle for the analog clock itself.
In addition, the second beta version of watchOS 5.1 has FaceTime support in groups (yes, with up to 32 people)! Obviously, as the watch does not have a camera, if you answer a group call for it, you will participate only by audio / voice.

Apple started testing Shortcuts 2.1 beta with developers today (you have to sign up again).
This version brings new Weather actions, which are VERY nice – you can get conditions, forecasts, and details for * any * location.
Great to see Apple continuing to improve the app! ? pic.twitter.com/4t7RXKsS4T
