iOS 12 SUPERGUIDE
Discover new and improved features in your free iPhone & iPad upgrade
This is the time of year when your iOS devices get a raft of improvements and new features, thanks to a major software update. We’ve spent the summer months bearing with the beta versions of iOS 12, investigating fresh features like Screen Time and scouring for new settings and behaviours to bring you this comprehensive collection of tips.
iOS 12 works on all the same devices as iOS 11, and Apple boldly claims that it delivers performance improvements to older devices, not just the latest ones. So, don’t be fooled by the images of iPhone X throughout this feature, as many of these features apply to earlier models, with a few obvious exceptions, such as the new Memoji characters you can create to represent yourself in iMessage and FaceTime conversations.
We’ll leave it up to you to determine the accuracy of Apple’s performance claims. But, we will say based on our time with iOS 12, other improvements bring enough benefits to consider this a great update. Check the apps and accessories you depend upon are compatible with it before moving over. If all is good, the following 13 pages are packed with dozens of reasons to install it today.
