Apple has shipped out a new version of iOS 12.1 for the iPhone XR, but it’s unclear why. According to MacRumors, the update is only appearing for users who haven’t already updated to iOS 12.1 since it released on October 26th, 2018. IOS 12 brought a handful of new features to the new suite of iPhones, including eSIM support, as well as camera features like depth control for portrait mode. Apple had to pull and re-release an update for the Apple watch earlier this week, so it seems that the company might be having issues with its most recent updates. Either way, there doesn’t seem to be any reports of either version of iOS 12.1 on the iPhone XR that are causing significant bugs or issues, so this update might remain a mystery.

By Andrew O'Hara Friday, September 21, 2018, 11:27 am PT (02:27 pm ET) Apple has issued new builds of iOS 12.1 beta to support the latest iPhone XS and XS Max that includes the delayed Group FaceTime feature. The first beta of iOS 12.1 was released earlier this week for existing iPhones, but now that the iPhone XS and XS Max are available to customers, additional builds have been released. This comes at the perfect time for customers eagerly receiving new iPhones today, as it is impossible to restore a new phone from a backup of a newer version of iOS. So, if a user's current iPhone was running iOS 12.1 beta, there is no way to restore from a backup of that device, running that version of the operating system until the new iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max is updated to the beta as well.
