IOS 12 - Hands On

Apple WWDC 2018 launch iOS 12 iPhone SE APPLE • GETTYApple WWDC 2018 launch live

With its own new tools, Apple has the ability to set a new tone for the industry as a whole, given how others copy its designs - right down to the iPhone X notch.

iOS 12 brings many improvements to certain user experiences as well, including a timed Do Not Disturb mode that automatically silences notification when it detects you have a meeting on your calendar and can automatically turn off when you leave a location.

Fortunately for us, Asymco analyst Horace Dediu has compiled a list of them all. September has been the launch date for each major release of iOS going back many years.

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2018 saw a host of technological advancements taking centre stage.

Apple was smart in choosing to avoid giving gender to their Memojis.

Q: Is iOS 12 stable? Group FateTime is able to link video calls between up to 32 people, beating out the numbers of Skype and Google Hangouts which max out at 25 users. When someone starts talking, their picture enlarges so you can better see them for the conversation. I would find myself swiping up from the bottom of the iPad screen to go the Home screen.

Back-to-back titles, and Finals MVPs, for Durant
He did not address his contract situation after being swept by the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. I just saw something and I thought, yeah we got this.

For those who want to spend lesser time or their iOS devices, Screen Time lets you monitor your usage behavior on apps and shows how frequently you access them in a day, it syncs across iOS devices and can tell if you have been doing an activity for too long, which is a great parental control feature.

Apple also rolled out new tools for augmented reality, saying users would be able to share worlds in games, for instance.

The feature uses Wi-Fi calling, so you'll need an internet connection, but it does mean you can make multiple calls at the same time, so you can chat to a friend while on hold with a utility company, for example.

A Screen Time limit lets parents block off time when the device can't be used at all, like around bedtime. Several rumors have pointed towards an iPad running iOS 12 releasing in the near future that will see Face ID included that will allow Apple to remove the Home button just like it did with the iPhone X. Allowing multiple users to register their face on an iPad makes flawless sense as the iPad tends to be shared between multiple users or even in an educational environment.

One of the biggest changes of the new iPhone software is Siri's presence. Or that Apple has now paid out more than $100 billion to App Store developers?
