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

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

Apple is officially releasing iOS 12 on Monday, September 17, four days before the new iPhones get released. We know from the Mojave preview that a Stacks feature coming to the desktop will automatically group files and folders by their type.

Technically, you'll be downloading the beta version of iOS 12 that Apple released earlier this summer.

Does your iPhone or iPad support iOS 12?

Amazon's Bezos comments on Trump criticism
He wrote that he wanted to help "people in the here and now - short term - at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact". Zuckerberg, 34, and his wife Priscilla Chan said in 2015 that they planned to give away 99 per cent of their Facebook stock.


Apple used this year's WWDC to wax lyrical about the improvements made within iOS 12 and to try and instill the belief that it is going to bring immediate speed and performance gains over iOS 114.1.

As you can imagine, mileage will vary depending on the age of the device, the number of apps and amount of data installed on the hardware, and the general wear and tear that has been placed on the device over the course of its lifetime. The Cupertino-based tech firm usually rolls out the new OS version to everyone right on the day of the launch, without any phased rollout. In order to avoid this issue on the former platform, iOS, Apple throttles devices to a point where you will keep on seeing "normal" battery life, but performance degradation is very evident. If you want to use iOS 12 before the vast majority of people, all you need to do is join the beta.

All iPhones from the 5S to the X are supported, as well as the iPod Touch 6th generation, iPad mini 2, 3, and 4, iPad Air and iPad Air 2, 5th generation iPad, iPad 2018, and the iPad Pro (9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and both generations of 12.9-inch). Four new Animoji have also been introduced by Apple - Koala, Tiger, Ghost and T.rex. Messages and FaceTime also get the ability to let users share images and videos directly from inside the app. There's also Screen Time that helps them understand better the time they and the kids spend on apps. One of the biggest changes users may see is that notifications from one app will be grouped. Even day-to-day tasks like opening apps and navigating around the UI seems to be faster on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s running iOS 12 Golden Master.
