The list of compatible iPhones, includes iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (2017). May your downloads be quick and your backups be recent. 3D obect detection is going to make AR experiences really insane on iOS 12, as developers will be able to leverage objects in the real world and turn them into cool AR experiences.

Several of us here at TidBITS have been using iOS 12 betas all summer, and it has been a largely positive experience.

New to iOS 12 is Screen Time, which you'll find as an extra option on the Settings menu: You can see which apps you use most often, how regularly you unlock your phone, set limits on the use of certain apps (or app categories), schedule Do Not Disturb times for your device, and more besides. With the new software comes plenty of new features, including Siri Shortcuts. All you have to do to use these Shortcuts is to pick a trigger phrase.

It seems that we can never have a major iOS update land without there being a large proportion of people report that they are experiencing significantly worse battery life after the update when compared to the version of iOS they just came from. An added feature called ScreenTime monitors how much time you are spending on your iPhone and a breakdown of the usage. The OS version was introduced back in June during WWDC 2018 conference.

Apple's latest mobile operating system, the iOS 12, will make its way to the general public tonight. You can expect to see faster app launch times, fewer app crashes, and an overall more responsive feel when using your iOS devices.


Users can install the iOS update over-the-air (OTA) if they are on a WiFi network.

iOS 12 will be available on September 17. The company touts that there's an up to 70 percent faster swipe to Camera and up to 50 percent faster keyboard display on iOS 12, as well as up to 2x faster app launch under a heavy workload.

The idea behind Siri Shortcuts is the need to not directly open an app to get something done, before you can do it.

You can also check if your iPhone or iPad is ready for the update by tapping Settings General Software Update. Here are some of the coolest new features you'll see in today's free update. I'm running it on the oldest model that supports iOS 12 - an iPhone 5s from 2013 - and the speed and stability of iOS 12 has brought that old phone out of retirement, as a modern walkman for my child. Along with some exercise features, such as the ability for it to detect when you start and stop working out, there's also (finally) a Podcasts app.

Everything we know about the incoming iOS 12 update can be read below. It's only available for Series 3, Series 2 and Series 1.
