Apple is officially releasing iOS 12 on Monday, September 17, four days before the new iPhones get released. It has undergone a total redesign and will make shopping for audiobooks and ebooks a walk in the park.

If you're considering buying any of the fancy new iPhones that Apple announced on Wednesday, and you're already an iPhone user, wait until iOS 12 releases before making a purchase decision.

Later this year, Apple plans to add FaceTime calling with up to 32 participants - but it won't be in the original iOS 12 release, as originally planned. His articles have been picked up by major and local news sources and websites such as the CNET, Engadget, Huffington Post and Verge. You should see an iOS 12 update.


Will you be updating your devices before September 17? With that release now out in the public, it's actually possible to see how it performs on an array of devices when compared against iOS 11.4.1, which is the current firmware for iPhone and iPad. While Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR will be coming with iOS 12 out of the box, other smartphones receiving this feature will be iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and iPhone 5s. If you want to use iOS 12 before the vast majority of people, all you need to do is join the beta.

Apple just unveiled its latest lineup of iPhones and Apple Watches and, even if you don't plan on upgrading, you'll soon be able to update your existing gadgets. Four new Animoji have also been introduced by Apple - Koala, Tiger, Ghost and T.rex. For parents, iOS 12 lets them set specific app usage time in the device for kids.

Screen Time adds the ability to monitor and limit your time in certain apps. Having spent 48 hours with an iPhone X running iOS 12 GM, I have to admit that things are very snappy for me. Siri learns your routine and shows up the dedicated shortcut on the lock screen right when you need it.
