Apple’s recently launched operating system is not a radical change from its predecessor, but it introduces new features that could change the way you use your smartphone.
Add Some Fun With Memojis
Now you can create a Memoji to match your personality and mood. The Memoji allows you to design your own animated emoji, which can also be controlled by your facial expressions thanks to the combination of iPhones’ extra sensors and updated software. The Animoji options, on the other hand, includes koala, tiger, ghost, T-Rex etc.
Faster Device Performance
The iOS 12 makes the older phones like the iPhone 6+ and iPad Air much faster: 40 per cent faster app launches, 50 per cent faster keyboard opening, and almost 70 per cent improvement in opening the camera, according to Apple.
Use Your Phone Responsibly
A suite of new tools called Screen Time helps you understand and make choices about how much time you are going to spend using apps and websites. You can set the amount of time you and your kids can spend each day on specific apps. Exceptions can also be created for apps you’d like your kids to have access to even during downtime, such as education apps.
Better Password Management
The iOS 12 brings a smart manager that’s built-in — iCloud Keychain, which lets you opt for a stronger unique password every time you sign up for a new service (suggested by the program), and syncs across all your Apple devices. It also works with third-party apps. It lets you share and receive passwords from nearby iOS devices.
Smart Navigation For Your Car
When you plug your iPhone into your vehicle with CarPlay, it supports third-party navigation apps, giving you more choices for a familiar experience on the dash while you are driving. iOS 12 for iPad includes updated gestures that make it easier to navigate.
Liven Up The Conversation
The messages app can now add filters, stickers, and other fun goodies to your iMessages and texts. Message threads and noti fication topics are grouped together, so it’s easier to see what’s important with just a glance at your iPhone or iPad.
Augmented Reality Gets Real
AR experiences fixed to real-world locations can now be shared. So, you can create a piece of AR art that can be viewed later in the same place by someone else. The ARKit 2 recognises objects and how your device is oriented to them and can use that information to incorporate objects into AR experiences.
Smart Suggestions And Shortcuts
Virtual assistant Siri is now smarter than before, and you can customise it, so it does a series of actions when you ask it to do a task. As Siri learns your routines, you’ll get suggested shortcuts for just what you need, at just the right time. You can also add shortcuts to Siri to run them with your voice on your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.
A New Reading Platform
With iBooks gone, the tech giant introduces Apple Books. The redesigned platform makes it easier for you to discover, read and listen to your favourite books and audiobooks. It lets you access your current book or start a new one in the Reading Now tab, visit the new bookstore to browse, buy a nd organise your library with more flexibility.
