She talks about performance and stability too, and there's good news in those areas! iOS 12 is compatible with the iPhone 5s and newer, iPad 5th gen and newer (basically any device already compatible with iOS 11) and watchOS 5 is compatible with all Apple Watch models except the original 2015 edition.

With this update, Apple says the camera will now launch up to 70 percent faster, and the keyboard 50 percent faster. If you're still using an old iPhone 5s or iPhone 6, this new update might just make your device feel a lot snappier than before. This comes after Apple received heavy backlash for allegedly slowing down the performance of older iPhones.

Apple is still going all-in on augmented reality, and iOS 12 pushes things forward with more precise face tracking, better 3D object recognition, and AR integrations in apps.

But you can now get iOS 12 through the Settings menu (the one with the big gray gear icon): Go to Settings - General - Software Update and you'll see it.

There are quire a few new Animoji features, if you're using the newest of devices (anything in the X family). Shared AR experiences have been created to allow multiple iOS users to use AR apps at the same time, while persistent AR allows people to place virtual objects into the real world that they can later return to, a sort of AR object save feature.

Compatible iPads include the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2nd generation, 12.9-inch iPad Pro 1st generation, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 9.6-inch iPad, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 2.

Apple's iOS 12 is finally out of beta.

So you can expect iOS 12, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 to start going live at 6pm BST, 10 AM PT or 1PM ET today.

Those trigger-happy haters who usually blame Apple for all the possible fails of the iPhones and Macs should hold their horses because today's problem is not the fault of the tech giant based in Cupertino.

Notifications. This new system is all about avoiding interruptions and reducing clutter on your lock screen. A portrait taken in iOS 12.

How to download, install iOS 12 One of the easiest ways to download the latest software is to wait for Over-the-Air (OTA) update on your phone.

When you select Manage, a popup asks if you want to set the app to deliver notifications quietly, turn off notifications altogether, or open settings to further customize the app's notifications. That said, we can help you approximate how much time you should set aside when you decide to download and install iOS 12. Hopefully there are more out there that will be found with additional use of the updated apps, but for now the shortcuts support seems relatively light. Apple has finally fixed this plague by grouping notifications from the same app together. In addition, AR files are now supported across core iOS apps including Messages, Safari, Mail, Files and News.
