Here's how you can sign up right away.

Earlier this week, Apple released iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12, so naturally, the next day was when we got the first betas for the upcoming "point one" updates.

That's not the only hint about new iPads in the iOS 12.1 beta, though. And yes, in case you are wondering, unlike the developer betas, the newly released public betas are absolutely free and can be downloaded over the air, meaning that you won't lose your files or settings after you are done with the update process. As of the writing of this article, no major bugs or problems have been found in the new software. Once you are logged in, open the Enroll My Devices section and follow the instructions there on how to install the newly released public betas. The Cupertino giant has also provided a bunch of references within iOS to suggest Face ID support on the new iPad family.

Apple has released iOS 12.1 developer beta 1 and it brings back Group FaceTime feature that was removed from iOS 12 release, reports 9to5 Mac.

Anyone who'd like to try out iOS 12.1 can now do so.

The code in iOS 12.1 beta 1 also confirms that Apple is working on adding landscape support to Face ID. The new iPad models are so far rumoured to have an all-new front panel that could ditch the Touch ID-enabled home button and have a thin-bezel display. This is something that could become hugely useful if an iPad with Face ID were to arrive, something we've expected for a few weeks. Measure is available on the Apple iPhone SE, iPhone 6s or later, Apple iPad (5th Generation) or later, and the Apple iPad Pro.
