With nearly two weeks to go until Apple’s iPhone XS reveal event, the company has released yet another iOS 12 developer beta along with a new public beta. This marks the third beta release in the past eight days, and with so much time remaining before the public rollout of the updated operating system, there’s a chance that we’ll see another beta release or two before it’s all said and done. The good news is that the latest beta fixes a rather nasty bug.

On Thursday night, many iOS 12 beta users began receiving a bombardment of pop-ups on their devices informing them of the following: “A new iOS update is now available. Please update from the iOS 12 beta.” There was no update at the time, but the latest beta release will stop your phone from yelling at you about an update.

iOS 12 developer beta 12 is currently available to developers, with iOS 12 public beta 10 having been released soon after. If you have an Apple developer account but you are not yet on the developer beta, you can hit this link on your iPhone or iPad to download the developer profile, which will let you install the iOS 12 developer beta as an over-the-air update. If you prefer to do things the old-fashioned way, you can visit the link on your PC or Mac, and use iTunes to manually update. If you don’t have a paid Apple developer account, you can also download iOS 12 beta profiles here.
