Apple releases iOS 12

Apple Watch Series 4 Vs Series 3, 44 / 42 mm Vs 40 / 38mm Size Comparison

iOS 12 is a free download. AR files can now be viewed almost anywhere in iOS, including apps like Messages, Safari, Mail, Files and News. This is because its banner feature is performance, particularly when under heavy load.

As with most iOS updates, some are useful and some are less so, but each is a piece of what Apple calls the "latest version of the most advanced mobile operating system". Click on that, and you should see the iOS 12 Beta Software Profile.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 are launching this week, but if you've chose to keep your current iPhone or Apple Watch rather than upgrade, Apple's got something new for you, too.

And if you have an iPhone X, you can download an Animoji of your choice.

Just like the early test software, iOS 12 will require you to download Siri Shortcuts separately.

If you've ever picked up your phone only to find 30 texts from a group thread, with each shown individually in a seemingly endless list of notifications, you're going to love this one.

Each addition to the app could enable leaps and bounds in possibilities for whichever portion of the 2 billion Apple devices in use are capable of running the Shortcuts app. Even if you were testing the betas of Mojave, you probably weren't doing so on your main Mac.

Don't forget to back up your iPhone or iPad before you download iOS 12

Notifications. This new system is all about avoiding interruptions and reducing clutter on your lock screen.

Apple has released iOS 12 and watchOS 5 to the public. If you come across any bugs, use the built-in Feedback Assistant app to report them. A new design makes it easier to capture, share and edit recordings. You can also search for lyrics (in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada), set multiple timers, and ping your other iOS devices.

The second method of updating iOS 12 is via iTunes.

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.

Before you update you should make sure your iPhone/iPad is fully charged or you are near a plug.

Shortcuts would have been reason enough to get excited about this release, but today's update to CARROT Weather also includes a feature I've wanted for over a year now: integration with the Siri face on Apple Watch.

Citymapper and Siri ShortcutsCitymapper walks you through adding Siri Shortcuts. In theory, you could even have it set the thermostat at your house, provided your thermostat's app is integrated.
