If Apple TV is available in your country, and you own a Samsung smart TV model from the past year, keep an eye out for the firmware update.

This is all a predicate for the new Apple TV+ subscription service, which Apple previewed at an event this spring and will bring a host of exclusive content to the platform later this fall. "In the US, Apple TV channels include popular services such as HBO, Starz, SHOWTIME, Smithsonian Channel, EPIX, Tastemade, and new services like MTV Hits, with more to be added over time around the world".
iOS 12.3 is also available for the HomePod, where it adds support for joining some types of enterprise networks that require unique credentials. Give it a week and then install if the Mac community doesn't start discussing update problems.
watchOS 5.2.1 is out too and it expands support for the ECG feature and irregular heart beat notifications to Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Croatia, and Iceland.
The only other change is a fix for a bug that prevented the numbers on the Explorer face from appearing for some users.
You can install the 126 MB watchOS 5.2.1 update using the iPhone's Watch app (go to Watch General Software Update).
