Apple's newest mobile operating system for iPhones and iPads, iOS 12, is about to launch. Apple announced iOS 12 in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) - it's now ready for download. iOS 12 focuses on reliability and performance.
While some of you might want to hold off on downloading iOS 12, at least temporarily, most of you will probably want to upgrade today or sometime in the near future. You can also manage your notification settings directly and you can have it "delivered quietly" for minimal distraction.
All of the above devices were showing some signs of stutter on the last build of iOS 11, which happens to be 11.4.1. I've been using the iOS 12 GM build for quite a while now since it came out and it has really breathed a sigh of fresh air into my iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 6 as well as iPad Pro 10.5-inch. On an iPhone 6 Plus that's running on normal peak performance, you can expect up to 70% faster camera launches and up to 50% faster keyboard display when you tap on a text input field.
Lifehacker's Anthony Caruana told us that he tested the app on a wall in his home with the new Measure app, and then compared it with a good old fashioned tape measure. We'll be publishing coverage of the new features in all these upgrades in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned. You could also see a larger download size. Memoji allows you to create Animoji based on yourself, and Animojis can now mimic your facial expressions as well. Thankfully, even if you struggle with the normal update process, there are ways to kickstart it into life.
The idea here is that if you happen to look at your phone when DND is enabled, you can still see the time but you won't feel obligated to reply to a message or email that's on your lock screen - because you can't even see the alerts. There are countless other features in iOS 12, from third-party navigation apps in CarPlay (yay!) to better battery information, more iPad gestures, better QR code scanning, and a whole lot more. As for Facetime, Apple is introducing support for group calls of up to 32 people with iOS 12, though that's going to come out at a later date.
But you can now get iOS 12 through the Settings menu (the one with the big gray gear icon): Go to Settings - General - Software Update and you'll see it.
Don't forget to back up your iPhone or iPad before you download iOS 12
Using Do Not Disturb to keep your phone quiet during a meeting or while you sleep is easy enough, right?
But wait, there's more. If you visit the App Store's updates page, you'll see that many apps are adding support for Siri Shortcuts. A new design makes it easier to capture, share and edit recordings. A new Apple-built Measure app for measuring objects using AR functionality is also a notable feature.
Voice Memos on the iPad.
You don't need to follow every single step, but we definitely recommend making sure all of your important data is backed up before you start with iOS 12.
iOS 12 is compatible on iPhone 5s and above as well as iPad Air and newer.
