iPhone XR: Apple is now allowing customers in the U.S. to purchase a SIM-free version of the iPhone XR, reports AppleInsider. The launch of the SIM-free iPhone XR in the U.S. is faster than typical SIM-free iPhone releases. AAPL typically waits a few months before releasing the SIM-free versions of its smartphones in the U.S. This launch allows customers to buy an iPhone XR without having to first tie it down to a mobile carrier.

iOS 12.1.1 Beta: A new beta of iOS 12.1.1 is now available for download, MacRumors notes. This beta is currently only available to developers. They can grab it via the Developer Center or via an over-the-air update. An update to the public beta will likely follow in the next few days. The iOS 12.1.1 update may not be as major as when iOS 12.1 came out, but it will still include some new features, such as more Haptic Touch options on the iPhone XR.
