Today has seen another round of software updates from Apple. In addition to iOS 12.1.3, Apple has released macOS Mojave 10.14.3, watchOS 5.1.3, and tvOS 12.2.1.

According to MacRumors , no new features or changes were found in the beta cycles of either macOS 10.14.3 or watchOS 5.1.3, suggesting that the focus of these releases is on bug fixes and under-the-hood improvements.

The release notes for macOS 10.14.3 via MacRumors confirm that most users are unlikely to notice any changes in this update:

This update improves the security, stability, and compatibility of your Mac and includes the following enterprise content: When making a file-sharing connection that uses a valid Kerberos TGT to authenticate, users are no longer prompted to enter credentials.

Apple does not traditionally provide release notes for tvOS, so it's still unknown what improvements of fixes are included with tvOS 12.1.2. However, it's likely to focus on under-the-hood performance improvements and bugs that have been discovered since the release of tvOS 12.

At the time of posting, we are not aware of any fixes, changes, or regressions for blind or low vision users in any of today's software releases. If you encounter any changes during your own use of the software, please let us know by adding a comment below.
