IOS 12 GM: What To Know & How To Get It!

The new iPhones with the i0s 12 display

Apple announced today at its iPhone event customers will soon be able to download iOS 12 on September 17, 2018. It has undergone a total redesign and will make shopping for audiobooks and ebooks a walk in the park. There is also a new recommendation engine that showcases content based on what you have purchased and Apple editors will also be curating reading lists.

Ever since the #Batterygate controversy and Apple slowing down devices to ensure maximum battery life, the company has been under the radar when it comes to new firmware releases and how it treats aging hardware.

It is awesome to see just how much Apple has been able to improve the performance of its older devices by simply rolling out a software update.

The iOS 12 is one of the most awaited updates for Apple users.

Visit beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram directly from the iPhone or iPad you want to update.

Clicking on it will bring up an install box and the user will subsequently be asked to type in their iOS device passcode.

In addition to the 11 player nominees and one coach nominee, the Broncos also have a contributor finalist: owner Pat Bowlen. The Oakland Raiders have been fortunate enough to see 26 members of the Silver and Black be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

As for the tablets, iOS 12 will be reaching 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2nd generation), 12.9-inch iPad Pro (1st generation), 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad (6th generation), iPad (5th generation), iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3 and iPad mini 2.

To sign up for the public beta you will need to visit beta.apple.com on your iOS device, and log in with your iCloud account.

We won't know the full extent of the changes coming to macOS until Mojave officially launches. Four new Animoji have also been introduced by Apple - Koala, Tiger, Ghost and T.rex.

Let's just skip to the exciting part and see whether or not iOS 12 is worth it on an older device running iOS 11.4.1.

A new "Screen Time" tool generates activity reports showing how often people pick up their iPhones or iPads, how long they spend in apps or at websites, and numbers of notifications received. Siri learns your routine and shows up the dedicated shortcut on the lock screen right when you need it.
