IOS 12 is available today

The new iOS 12 is only available for devices like the iPhone 5s and later, the iPad mini 2 and later, the iPad Air and later, and the 6th-generation iPod touch. Apple also adds that iOS 12 was designed with speed and easier everyday use in mind. Apple says the camera app launches up to 70% faster while the keyboard appears on the screen up to 50% faster. Even your iPhone 6 will run faster. This comes after Apple received heavy backlash for allegedly slowing down the performance of older iPhones.

Before getting the iOS 12 update on your iPhone, it is recommended that you backup your device either using iTunes or iCloud.

The blockbuster update is due to land on iPhones and iPads later today, and will introduce a plethora of new features and upgrades to eager Apple product users.

Apart from the performance related improvements, there are other great features too such as Memoji that allows you to turn yourself into an emoji so you can share your wonderful little creation with other using iMessage.

I've been using the iOS 12 beta for a few months, and today iOS 12 is available to the wider public.

Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch might reboot itself once or twice as the installation process starts finishing up, but don't be alarmed.

After days of anticipation, the final version of Apple's iOS 12 is here.

This is one of the many new features in the iOS 12 update. If you have an older device, you won't be able to apply the update. There are countless other features in iOS 12, from third-party navigation apps in CarPlay (yay!) to better battery information, more iPad gestures, better QR code scanning, and a whole lot more. You can also save podcasts to your Apple Watch in watchOS 5 using Apple Podcasts, and a Walkie-Talkie app will let you quickly communicate with your friends using your Apple Watch.

At last week's iPhone launch, Apple gave the stage to Lisa Jackson, vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives. When enabled, any notifications will not show up on your lock screen.

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. That issue has been fixed in iOS 12. You're going to want to make sure to do that before you download the update, just in case things get dicey and you end up having to unexpectedly do a hard reset on your device. That said, we can help you approximate how much time you should set aside when you decide to download and install iOS 12. Even if you were testing the betas of Mojave, you probably weren't doing so on your main Mac.

Productivity and note-taking app Evernote is also taking advantage.
