IOS 12 is available today

Apple iOS 12, the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, will be available for download tonight for the general public.

Streaks is an app for tracking consecutive tasks - whether it's walking the dog, doing yoga, standing for a certain amount of the day, or more.

There's no way to downgrade to anything older than iOS 11.4.1 which means those of you coming from an older version of iOS need to be extremely careful when and if you decide to move to iOS 12.

iPhone XS, XS Max and XR will all run iOS 12 out-of-the-box. For older iPhones, Apple notes that apps now launch up to twice as fast, while camera launches are up to 70 percent faster, and the keyboard appears up to 50 percent faster. That's a ton of impressive gains, and even though I own the iPhone X, these performance upgrades are very noticeable on the iPhone X.

App Developers have been working hard to get their apps ready for iOS 12.

But... there also aren't a ton of new features. Yoga and hiking are new supported workout types. Memoji allows you to create Animoji based on yourself, and Animojis can now mimic your facial expressions as well.

Users can install the iOS update over-the-air (OTA) if they are on a WiFi network. Just like iOS 12, the company has released the consumer-ready version of Siri Shortcuts to testers.

Apple should release iOS 12 at around 10 AM PST/1 PM EST.

Samsung Galaxy S10 design changes will be 'significant', confirms CEO DJ Koh
The New York Post also confirmed that the woman wants Samsung to pay for all the damages including her purse and her belongings. The incident alleged in Chung's lawsuit is reminiscent of the Galaxy Note 7 nightmare Samsung experienced two years ago.

You can also cut down on notifications however you see fit, and see some minor changes to both Messages and FaceTime.

But wait, there's more.

That said, you've been waiting this long, so what's another week or two?

iOS 12 - What time will iOS 12 be released?

With shortcuts available for anything you could think of in the app, plus rich visual Siri responses, and extensive customization options, anything I could want is already here.

Voice Memos on the iPad.

iOS 12 also brings better AR support, allowing for multiplayer AR experiences and better, more responsive Animoji.

iOS 12 update will require at least 2GB of free space, so if you're running low on free space on your iPhone or iPad, it might be a good idea to free up some space by deleting unwanted stuff from your device.
