Download iOS 12.3 Public Beta 2 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Apple has seeded the second beta version of iOS 12.3 Beta 2 to the general public. Here’s how you can get this update on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

What’s new in iOS 12.3 Beta 2?

The second beta iteration of iOS 12.3 is upon us. It comes with a build number of 16F5129d and weighs no less than 350MB on compatible devices.

According to the changelog, this update adds support for the Reiwa era of the Japanese calendar that starts from May 1, 2019.

The beta 2 update also fixes the video lag issue that makes videos lag after 15 seconds or more.

Also, the palm rejection bug, which caused the iPad to not ignore another touch input alongside an Apple Pencil, has now been fixed. 

As far as bugs go, users may experience unexpected behavior if they change the system time to May 1 in the Japanese calendar and time format. 

You can download this update for your compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod over-the-air. Alternatively, you can use the IPSW firmware file given below and perform an upgrade using iTunes.

As always, there’s no point in updating to such a minor update, unless you live in Japan and have to switch to the new era.

If, however, you are experiencing the video lag and palm rejection bugs on the first beta update, move to the latest update as soon as possible.     

Jailbreak enthusiasts should stay away from any iOS 12.3 beta version and stick to iOS 12.1.2 and below.
