Voice Memos in iOS 12 is an entire rewrite of the app we’ve known and used for years. In fact, it’s now available on the iPad and the Mac as well (on macOS Mojave). This redesign takes the Voice Memos app from the iOS 7 world straight to the iOS 12 design language that’s built with huge headers, overlays and of course, sweet-sweet dark theme.
iOS 12: Release Date, New Features, Rumors, and more
Do you feel your iPhone has become slow after iOS 12 update? In this article, we’ll show you how to speed up your slow iPhone.
DPReview reports that some iPhone X users are reporting that iOS 12 significantly degrades the quality of their display. Reddit user shannister reports “slightly washed out screen, colours popping less and blacks appearing more greyed out” after installing the iOS 12 update.
iOS 12 is all about performance improvements and those nice little features that make the OS easier and more convenient to use. But what about battery life? Apple did not claim any battery life improvements with iOS 12 but if early test results are anything to go by, the performance improvements brought about by iOS 12 actually come at the expense of battery life.
The life of an iCloud Keychain user is pretty seamless. They can easily autofill usernames and passwords in Safari and in apps as well. In iPhone apps, the process happens automatically! Because the Face ID scan happens on its own, there’s no need to physically press a button either! Now, the same seamless experience will be available to users of third-party password managers like 1Password and LastPass as well!
Like every new software update, iOS 12 is filled with some awesome new stuff. And some not so awesome new stuff. While the new Siri automation features and group notifications are a huge improvement, there are parts of the features that can be annoying (at least for a subset of iPhone and iPad users).
iOS 12 has a half a dozen new features that make password management on iPhone and iPad easy. The new password autofill option shows up at every login page. You can share passwords using AirDrop and Apple will automatically recognize one time passwords and present it as a button just above the keyboard. Automatic strong password generation is one such feature.
iOS 12 brings all new gestures to the iPad. And this is just a year since we saw a big overhaul of iPad features. Basically, Apple has now brought gesture parity between the latest X-style iPhones and the iPad. Presumably, this is a preamble to the Face ID equipped, home button less, edge-to-edge iPads. Right now, we’re caught in the transitionary time. This means, new gestures to go home, use the Dock and of course, the Control Center.
iOS 12 is all about adding smarts to existing features. We’re seeing it everywhere from notifications, Siri to even the Photos app. In the new Photos app, you get a multi-keyword search that actually works, smart photo sharing, a personalized For You tab and a lot more.
iOS 12 changes quite a bit when compared to iOS 11, but it looks like the adoption rate isn’t reflecting a mad dash to grab the new software.
