And now Face ID works even faster than before to securely and privately unlock, authenticate, and pay.
iOS 12 will provide much better performance for devices stretching back to the iPhone 5s, offer better notification management, let you know how much time you're spending on your device, enable Siri Shortcuts, and more. iOS 12 is focusing more on refinement over a bunch of new features, but that isn't exactly bad all things considered. All you need to do is join the Applebeta program if you haven't already joined.
Apple issued the Golden Master (GM) build of iOS 12 to developers and public beta testers on September 12, the day of its Gather Round event. Standard apps such as News, Photos, and Apple Books (formerly iBooks) have also improved. If you live in Melbourne, Australia, you'll need to wake up early if you want to install right away. iOS software typically drops there at 3AM in the morning. After that happens go to settings and check for an update. With the iOS 12, Apple is changing that.
In addition to joining the beta program, there is one more way to download and install iOS 12 early.
After months of anticipation, Apple is finally rolling out its new iOS update, and iPhone users couldn't be more excited.
Once everything is done, your device should restart. With the new iPhone update, you will be able to create an avatar that suits your mood and personality and that you can use in Messages and FaceTime.
Users willing to wait a few more days to get the final iOS version will get a notification when the update is available.
Before downloading iOS 12 users are recommended to backup their phone while it is still using the iOS 11 as a precaution. Alongside of new devices, however, comes new software updates, which have been in beta since WWDC in June.
