Apple has been seeding developer and public betas of its planned update for its popular platforms, and now the official release is here.
iOS 12: Release Date, New Features, Rumors, and more
Apple likes to keep tabs on how its install base is doing for its latest major release, at least as far as iOS is concerned.
Apple may have had to delay the launch of the Group FaceTime feature, but now that it’s out there in the wild the company can go to town with marketing it.
After releasing iOS 12.1 on late last month, Apple has stopped signing iOS 12.0.1 thereby making downgrades no longer possible. Given that iOS 12.1 brings a number of new features and bug fixes to the table including Group FaceTime and eSIM support, most users will have little reason to downgrade back to iOS 12.0.1.
Apple continues to beta test its incoming updates for its major software platforms, from iOS to tvOS.
An iPhone X user in Washington claims that his device exploded after being updated to iOS 12.1. The device first emitted grey smoke before bursting up in flames.
To keep its price in check, Apple removed 3D Touch from the iPhone XR. Instead, Apple has replaced it with Haptic Touch which is essentially a long press coupled with haptic feedback. However, due to hardware limitations, Haptic Touch on the iPhone XR only works in a few places across iOS 12 and it is simply not as useful as 3D Touch.
Liang Chen of Keen Lab has posted a photo on Twitter confirming that he has managed to jailbreak an iPhone XS Max running iOS 12.1. This is the first known jailbreak of iOS 12.1 running on an iPhone XS Max.
It has been a week since Apple released iOS 12.1 to the public, and the company is back with another, slightly updated version.
