In a short while from now, Apple will release iOS 12, the twelfth major release of the iOS software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Here’s how to download and install iOS 12 on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch so you’re prepared.
How to use iPhone and iPad
As expected, Apple has released the iOS 12 GM (golden master) to developers earlier today, and the final build will be officially released on September 17. In this article, we show you how to install iOS 12 right now on your iPhone and iPad.
Apple will be live streaming its highly anticipated 2018 iPhone event on September 12 so you can watch it live on your Apple TV, Mac, PC or mobile irrespective of which part of the world you stay in. In this article, we show you how to watch Apple’s 2018 iPhone event live.
After years of neglect, Apple is finally paying some attention to Do Not Disturb features on iPhone and Apple Watch. With the iOS 12 and watchOS 5 update, you get a lot more control over just how and when your Apple device can get your attention (by sending a notification or by tapping on your wrist).
iOS 12 includes hundreds of new features and improvements, but Bluetooth connectivity problems still remain one of the most commonly reported problems by users after upgrading to iOS 12. In this article, we will show you how to fix Bluetooth problems in iOS 12.
watchOS 5 comes with a neat new feature that automatically detects when you’ve started or ended a workout. After it’s been a couple of minutes, you’ll get a helpful notification asking if you want to start tracking the workout. At this point, it’s just a suggestion. Until you expressly choose an option from the notification, nothing will be tracked.
The virtual trackpad is one of the coolest features enabled by 3D Touch technology on the iPhone. And it’s one of the few features that is genuinely useful. First introduced in iPhone 6s, you could press a bit harder on the keyboard to turn the whole virtual keyboard into a trackpad. Then you could just swipe around to move the cursor. Go a level deeper and you can actually select text now!
iOS 12 is filled with little features that will add to your iPhone and iPad experience. Just like the easier force quitting gesture for apps on iPhone X. The Thesaurus addition to the Look Up section is in the similar vein. Life changing? Maybe not, but damn useful when you might need it? Definitely.
watchOS 5 comes with a new workout detection feature. This simple feature tries to predict when you’re working out and helps you record it. While the workout detection happens automatically, there is still a manual step involved. Unlike Fitbit, your Apple Watch won’t start recording a supported workout automatically. What you’ll get instead is a helpful notification asking if you’d like to begin the workout that Apple Watch has just detected.
