The release notes for these upcoming updates only highlight bug fixes and performance improvements, however, we expect to fix an issue that bother many users, in which they found that the iPhone failed to connect to cellular network after updating the iOS 12.1.1, and affecting some app, it's understood that the problem already known by Apple engineers, so iOS 12.1.2 is likely to fix that bug.

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12 to the public users, which means new beta versions will soon be rolled out to developers.

Moreover, developer Steve Though-Smith says iOS 12.1 code suggest future iPad Pros will gain Landscape Face ID feature.

As far as watchOS 5.1 concerned, you may have noticed that when Apple introduced Apple Watch Series 4 last week, there is a footnote in the bottom of a slide, which says watchOS 5.1 will include ECG/EKG app support. There is, however, no features were brought this time to the tvOS 12.1.

On WWD 2018, Carplay was said to support third-party navigation apps, such as Waze and Google Maps. Surely, Google has released its Maps app with Carplay support, nonetheless, take a note here that you will require to update your iPhone to the latest iOS 12 operating system in order to enable the Google Maps app works in your car system.
