The idea of distributing the first releases to the developers is to make sure that they actually find big mistakes.
This allows Apple to remove the beta version before it reaches the iPhone and iPad to the public. The wisdom of this was demonstrated this summer, when an iOS 12 Beta had such a big bug that it had been fixed by the developers a few hours after its release.
Apple seems very confident that nothing will happen on iOS 12.1. The most urgent reason might be that the company needs to release this new release quickly because it may need to be released on iPhone XR on Friday.
What happens in iOS 12.1?
Anyone who wants can sign up for the Apple Beta software program and download iOS 12.1 Beta 5. It's free and relatively easy.
Those brave enough to install the latest beta can quickly become familiar with Group FaceTime, allowing users to chat with 31 people at the same time. Of course, anyone participating in any of these group discussions must run a beta version of iOS 12.1 or macOS 10.14.1.
