Apple's iOS12 Releases Today: What You Need To Know

Apple Watch Series 4 A very useful tool? Yes. The ultimate tool? Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves
| 18 September, 2018, 07:42

You can now download both updates over the air, with iOS 12 available by going into Settings General Software Update on your iPhone or iPad and watchOS 5 available by going into the Watch app on your iPhone and then selecting General Software Update from there.

Notifications can be controlled more easily in iOS 12 with a simple setting able stop them for a certain time in the day and a total block when you are in bed.

Earlier today, Apple officially released iOS 12 into the wild. However, once it's set to go, you should see the changes with iOS 12 right away.

Notifications can now also be grouped and managed by app. We didn't have an iPhone 5s to test at the time of publishing, but if Apple can deliver on this promise, it's a big deal-and a big change from iOS releases in the past, which were notorious for crippling older phones.

The feverishly-anticipated iOS 12 mobile operating system is now available to download on nearly all iPhones and iPads right now.

Apple iOS 12 is a free upgrade and is compatible with iPhones from 5S and above. So you might have to delete some apps, or back up photos to the iCloud, in order to ensure enough space for the new update.


Having Shortcuts as an app you have to download from the App Store might be a good thing for the community, because it means that custom shortcuts and the complicated drag & drop action steps within the app won't be presented to users who aren't looking for it.

Speaking of developers, the new and improved ARKit 2 that comes as part of iOS 12 will make AR apps even more powerful, though it might take some time for such apps to start appearing.

Considering iOS updates have been regarded with a level of caution after controversies around previous rollouts caused users handsets to slowdown, this is a pretty reassuring development. Click on that, and you should see a screen with the details of the profile. We'll explain how you can go about the update process.

The iOS 12 update is an exciting upgrade, but it's impossible to predict exactly how your device will react to the move.

In fact, the issues people are experiencing with degraded battery life after updating to iOS 12 are perfectly normal, and something to be expected.

However, devices that I have wiped and reloaded a new iOS onto, and then installed and re-setup all my apps and such, feel faster and seem to suffer from fewer problems (such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi issues). You either manually turn it on, or schedule when you want your phone to quit begging for your attention with each new alert.
