The new iOS 12 is only available for devices like the iPhone 5s and later, the iPad mini 2 and later, the iPad Air and later, and the 6th-generation iPod touch. The OS version was introduced back in June during WWDC 2018 conference. Click on the "Summary" tab on the left side of the screen and you'll see a Backups heading with a big blue button that says "Back up now".
Less exciting are new animojis, or animated emojis, including a feature called Memoji that allows users to create an animoji based on their own features.
There are quire a few new Animoji features, if you're using the newest of devices (anything in the X family).
As is the case with any modern smart device, the Apple Watch also gets better over time through regular, substantial software updates.
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. Like in iOS 12, notifications from the same app are automatically grouped together. For more details, you should check out this Twitter post.
Notifications. This new system is all about avoiding interruptions and reducing clutter on your lock screen.
Despite nothing that really wows people, iOS 12 received largely positive reviews.
The Camera and Photo Apps Gets Smarter Your phone's hardware determines a lot about the camera's quality, but Apple's making some software improvements as well-in particular, portrait photos on dual-camera devices should have improved lighting. "And keeping using them is the best thing for the planet".
Apple iBooks gets a revamp with iOS 12 and becomes simply Apple Books.
Arguably more impressive, though, is the new Photos app, which boasts more powerful search (so you can search for things like "restaurants", "museums", or "hiking") plus suggestions that adhere to these categories. You can also install it through iTunes, but we recommend the over-the-air update instead due to Apple's waning interest in iTunes. All you have to do to use these Shortcuts is to pick a trigger phrase.
