iOS 12 tweaks the operating system with Grouped Notifications, Memoji being added to Animoji, and better speeds for older devices. "Camera launches up to 70 percent faster, the keyboard appears up to 50 percent faster and typing is more responsive". List of iOS 12 compatible iPhones include older iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s. Once you've backed up to iCloud and iTunes (read the referenced article for why we say "and"), install iOS 12 by going to Settings General Software Update and tapping Download and Install.

If you've been considering a smartwatch purchase, the Apple Watch is as good a choice as any - it can track your steps and heart rate like any other fitness band, but it also offers a pretty wide range of other features, including Siri functionality, ring-based health goal tracking, and built-in cellular connectivity.

However, if you generally fall on the cautious side, or if you depend on your devices to work properly, here's our advice on when you should think about installing these new versions. Apart from the obvious features that are listed on Apple's website (which you can check out here) there are certain things that you will find in the iOS 12 changelog only. It's also compatible on the iPod Touch 6th gen as well as iPad mini 2 and above.

Apple's iOS 12 is finally out of beta. Apple iOS 12 users now have a dashboard where they can monitor how much time they have spent on their device and different applications.

Apple officially moved iOS 12 out of beta on Monday with the first public release of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch operating system.

Keynote is the odd app out this update cycle, with its only solo improvement being the addition of two new options for presenters: adjusting text size for presenter notes, and inverting colors while presenting.

Photos Apple's native photo application is getting smarter with the latest iOS 12 update.

If you care, or have enough time, I'd also recommend backing up your device a second time, in case one of your backups gets corrupted. When enabled, any notifications will not show up on your lock screen.

Augmented Reality Apple has continued its efforts to bring deeper Augmented Reality integration in its iOS.

Backing up your iPhone or iPad is a simple process that can be completed in either iTunes or your device's Settings app.

But one problem Apple users face year and year out is the ability to quickly download new iOS software.

Select Download and Install. You can also add it as a widget on your home screen to easily access it. Apple has finally fixed this plague by grouping notifications from the same app together.
