Since iOS 12.1.1 is a point update, do not expect any major new feature from it. It is meant to address bugs and the company could not fix in iOS 12.1 software update. Even the official release notes for the beta reads “contains bug fixes and improvements.”
Since the release notes are non-specific, we may not know exactly what Apple has fixes through this beta until the company provides more specific details. We will update this post as we learn more about this release.
