Read on Nexter.org about the best features of new iOS and a guide on how to update.

Measure app

Apple presented a new app called Measure. Measure app helps you take measurements of real-world objects. The app uses your iPhone’s camera to virtually take accurate readings, letting you see the width, length, and height of things just by tapping your screen.

Plus, if you point Measure at a photo, it’ll automatically detect it and tell you the dimensions.

People didn’t waste time and started to measure everything they see.

Faster and better

Apps launched 40 perent faster, the keyboard loads 50 percent faster, and swiping from the home screen to your camera app happens 70 percent faster. Under load, apps now launch twice as fast thanks to tweaks to how Apple’s processors handle and predict when performance is necessary.

Every device running iOS 11 can run iOS 12 and benefit from the purported performance improvements.

Screen Time feature

Apple unveiled new tools to help you cut back on your screen time, along with new controls for parents.

Here’s what you’ll be able to do:

  • “Do not disturb” during bedtime. Enabling this feature means you won’t see your iPhone notifications until the next morning, just the time on a dark screen.
  • Set an end time for “do not disturb.” You can do this by force-touching on the button in your control center.
  • Screen time. This feature will provide an activity summary that details how you used your iPhone or iPad over a week.
  • App limits. You’ll be able to set time limits for individual apps.
  • New parental controls. Parents can get notifications about their kids’ smartphone use.

Siri is now smarter

Siri Shortcuts is a way to get things done more quickly. Siri will automatically suggest actions based on how and when you use certain apps. If, for instance, you order a coffee every morning around the same time, Siri will start asking you if you’re ready to order it.

Memoji and new animoji

Apple is expanding its special-effects offerings in iOS 12. The new features include:

  • Memoji. These animated avatars mimic your facial expressions and head movements. Memoji are customizable to look like you — or anyone you want — much like Snap’s personalized Bitmoji characters.
  • More animoji. Apple added four new animated emoji to its lineup. The new characters include a tiger, a koala, a T-rex, and a ghost.
  • iMessage and FaceTime will get memoji and animoji too. You’ll be able to add new filters, animoji, and memoji to your photos and FaceTime , as well as include stickers and text in your iMessage conversations.

Secret features

  • More battery information. In iOS 12, you will be given more granular battery usage information. In Settings, you’ll be able to see your battery usage for individual apps for the last 24 hours or 10 (instead of seven) days. And tapping on one of the bars will show you the app usage for that period of time.
  • Photos app became smarter. Apple made a bunch of subtle updates to the Photos app, putting it on par with apps like the popular Google Photos.  The app will recommend searching for people, places, categories, business names, sporting events, or concerts. When you select a term, the app will pull up all photos related to that term. The app will automatically generate personalized items like memory movies, features photos, and “on this day” images. The Photos app will suggest photos and videos share with the people who are in them.
  • QR Code scanner. Add the shortcut in Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls and tap the green button next to Scan QR Code.
  • Do Not Disturb feature. You can set Do Not Disturb to disable itself after an hour or when you leave your current location.

How to update to iOS 12? 

With Wi-Fi network, you can upgrade to iOS 12 right from your device. Connect the smartphone to its charger and go to Settings > General > Software Update. iOS will automatically check for an update and install iOS 12.
