IOS 12.1 beta appears to confirm USB-C on new iPads

Got one of these guys lying around? Upgrade it to iOS 12 it'll thank you

This is simply not possible now, but 9to5Mac spotted a new daemon in iOS 12 beta 1 called avatarsd, with further clues leading to the belief that this will allow iCloud syncing of Memoji faces.

Apple on Tuesday seeded the first developer beta of iOS 12.1, just one day after the general rollout of iOS 12.

According to the latest data compiled by analytics firm Mixpanel, iOS 12 is installed on 12.27 percent of Apple devices. iOS 11's share, as a result, has fallen from 89.96 percent on Monday to 79.86 percent on Thursday.

Apple says the new operating system is compatible with iPhones all the way back to the iPhone 5s.

The new beta is now available from the Apple Developer portal, or as an over-the-air update if the proper profile is installed on a device.

Uganda pop star put into police van on arrival
According to a Daily Monitor reporter, some journalists have been arrested and detained on their way from Kampala to Entebbe. Museveni, a key US ally on regional security, took power by force and has since been elected five times.

Macrumors notes that when iOS 11 was released around this time previous year, it hit the 10 percent mark a lot faster - within 24 hours of launching.

Later phones, like the iPhone 4S and 5, can run more recent versions of iOS and shouldn't be affected.

Among the benefits of the upgraded OS: sticking with this idea of people hanging on to their older device longer, take the iPhone 6 Plus. App launch times for Safari, Camera, Settings, Mail, Messages, Calendar, Maps, and Notes were at the minimum 10 percent faster than before. Macrumors notes that apps launch on it up to 40 percent faster with IOS 12.

Animations are smoother and more responsive, too. Every single iOS device capable of running iOS 11 can handle this upgrade.
