Apple releases a new major version of iOS every single year, but they also have minor bugfix releases regularly. If it notices you're checking in to look over your to-do list at the same time each day, it will push a Siri shortcut to your lock screen at the appropriate time.

But if you've been on the iOS 12 beta program for the last few months, the update to iOS 12 for the general population brings a rare opportunity to downgrade easily. The Camera app now launches 70% faster, the keyboard shows up 50% faster, and typing should be smoother with less lag. That's a ton of impressive gains, and even though I own the iPhone X, these performance upgrades are very noticeable on the iPhone X. In iOS 12, apps can integrate with Siri, using something called Shortcuts. If your device supports Animoji, there are four new Animoji - koala, tiger, ghost, and T.rex.

You can record 30-second video clips of your Memoji talking (or singing!) and send it in a conversation, just as you would any other Animoji. It lets you create multiple characters of yourself, with different characteristics and accessories.

Users can install the iOS update over-the-air (OTA) if they are on a WiFi network. You will be able to see how much space is being occupied by the apps, so you can at least delete the ones that are taking up too much storage space. Just like iOS 12, the company has released the consumer-ready version of Siri Shortcuts to testers. In our testing, the consumer-ready version of iOS 12, which app creators also got early, did not include the Siri Shortcuts app either. So be patient and download the iOS 12 software update after the floor of requests has slowed down. Screen Time is a new feature that allows users to track and control their phone use, limiting certain apps to time limits and analyzing how an iPhone or iPad is used.

But wait, there's more. While some of you will see an improvement, many others will run into bugs and performance issues that could have a major impact on day-to-day use. All you have to do to use these Shortcuts is to pick a trigger phrase.

iOS 12 - What time will iOS 12 be released?

One of the coolest features out today is the ability for HomePod to now ping your iOS or macOS devices, which is one of the best features from Apple Watch. And if you are really interested in changelogs, I suggest checking out the full changelog for the release here.
