Apple is making sure they stay on top as the leading advanced technology brand. This year the company is set to wow their solid Apple fans with enhancements in their pre-existing OS. Set to provide users with optimized performance in their Apple devices, iOS 12 will offer solutions to the bugs and glitches in the current and previous iOS.
Ready for Apple’s newest iOS 12 beta? Here are some of the key things you need to know about the new iOS 12 that is set to power up your iPhone and iPad gadgets later this year:
- It is easy and free to download.
You don’t need to register your device for an ID nor does it require a developer’s account. You can simply download it in a breeze at the Apple Beta Program website. As a friendly reminder, be sure to back up your device before downloading and installing iOS 12. And if you don’t want to deal with potential issues inherent in pre-released software, you may want to wait for the official software which is foreseen to be released this September.
- iOS 12 is focused on delivering smoother and faster performance.
With this latest OS you can expect to enjoy faster applications, navigation on your Apple devices should be smoother and crashes will be significantly reduced.
Even your old iPhone like the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 will have a dramatically improved performance once you upgrade to iOS 12.
- A Smarter Siri.
Apple’s voice assistant will be more intuitive. Siri Shortcuts allows you to customize your tasks and commands to let Siri do more things for you such as sending a message, play a podcast or remind when you when you’re running late for an important meeting.
- Manage Your Screen Time
iOS 12 allows you to better manage and reduce the time you spend on your screen. Why? The OS comes with tools that will track how often you pick up your device, how much time you spend using different apps, and how frequent you get those notifications. When you see the numbers, you’ll probably begin to ask, am I using my time wisely here?
- Enhanced Privacy
The new OS promise to provide users with enhanced privacy with its intelligent tracking prevention system. Apple will be implementing browser innovations so that these annoying data tracking companies will find it more difficult to track your online footprints.
- Introducing Measure, an AR measurement tool.
Apple is set to boost the Augmented Reality applications with the aim to make AR more relatable and practical to the broader population.
- Group FaceTime and easier photo sharing services.
Apple will be introducing the new “For You” tab to encourage convenient photo editing and sharing. And, with group FaceTime you can already speak simultaneously to up to 32 people. It seems finally Apple has begun to notice about their already-behind video calling tools.
Move over Animoji, Apple’s updated cartoon avatar Memoji is here to takeover. Memoji lets you create fun, cartoon avatars of your face. You can transform yourself into different animated emojis, ghost, and other adorable animals and you can even use your memoji face during your FaceTime conversation.
