Apple releases iOS 12.2 Public Beta 5

Apple has seeded the fifth beta of iOS 12.2 with minor changes. Here’s how you can get this update on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

What’s new in iOS 12.2 Beta 5?

iOS 12.2 Beta 5 weighs about 300MB for all compatible devices and comes with a build number of 16E5223a.

Since this build number ends with an “a”, it’s highly likely that the upcoming beta will be Golden Master.   

As far as changes go, this update doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Just like its predecessor, Beta 5 brings bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Alternatively, you can manually download and install the OTA profile given below.

Should you update?

This update is a regular “bug-fix” update that corrects the issues present in the older betas. If your device is already stable and bug-free, there’s no good reason for you to update it.

If, however, you are into jailbreaking and have already updated to iOS 12, avoid this version like the plague.
