iOS 12: Release Date, New Features, Rumors, and more
In a bid to try out the new features of iOS 12, many iPhone or iPad owners end up installing the beta version of the OS on their device. Apple made the life of such people easier by rolling out iOS 12 beta builds via OTA. However, now that Apple is scheduled to roll out the first public build of iOS 12 to the public, users running iOS 12 beta or Golden Master build on their device are wondering if they would get the update to it.
Apple is known to support its older iPhones and iPads for a long period of time. With iOS 12, the company is supporting the iPhone 5s which it had first released in 2013.
iOS 12 will go live on 17th September. The 12th iteration of iOS for iPhone and iPad is very much an evolutionary update. Apple has taken the time this year to go back and fix some of the fundamental issues in iOS. On paper, iOS 12 is totally worth upgrading. I mean, just take a look at all the awesome new features! But, as always, there’s a gray area.
Right after its ‘Gather Round’ event earlier this week, Apple released the Golden Master build of iOS 12 to developers.

With iOS 12 promising massive performance improvements, let’s see how iOS 12 GM compares to iOS 11.4 in speed tests conducted on older iPhones.
