Apple iOS 12 update: How to download

As for compatability, iOS 12 is available on the iPhone 5s and newer iPhones, and the majority of the iPad devices.

The feverishly-anticipated iOS 12 mobile operating system is now available to download on nearly all iPhones and iPads right now. Apple says the camera app launches up to 70% faster while the keyboard appears on the screen up to 50% faster. If you're still using an old iPhone 5s or iPhone 6, this new update might just make your device feel a lot snappier than before. If your iPhone is busy doing other tasks, apps can launch twice as fast under iOS 12 than in iOS 11.

Apple's new iOS 12 update comes with a long list of changes including performance enhancements and features like Screen Time and Siri Shortcuts. Every new action added to Workflow in the past opened new doors for its users, so it'd be fantastic to see Apple continue that with Shortcuts too. Headlining the Messages party are "Memoji", which are custom animoji you can create to look just like you, with whatever hairstyle, eye color, and facial features you want.

Strawberry sabotage: WA not affected by needle contamination
Three more cases of needles and pins found in strawberries have been confirmed, with six brands now believed to be affected. A young boy in Gladstone ended up with a needle in his mouth on Tuesday after taking strawberries to school.

In addition to those patches, iOS 12 delivers new security features aimed at protecting you and the data you store on your device. Apple iOS 12 users now have a dashboard where they can monitor how much time they have spent on their device and different applications. The update is also compatible with the first and second generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 5th and 6th generation iPad, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3 and iPad mini 2 and the sixth generation iPod touch.

Apple News is redesigned to make it easier to discover new channels and topics or jump straight to favorites, with a new sidebar on iPad and the Channels tab on iPhone.

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.

Senator says committee should hear Kavanaugh accuser's side of story before vote
While his friend watched, Ford said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes. Republicans control a majority in the Senate and thus can approve his nomination with a majority of votes.

Despite nothing that really wows people, iOS 12 received largely positive reviews. AR files can now be viewed almost anywhere in iOS, including apps like Messages, Safari, Mail, Files and News. Hopefully there are more out there that will be found with additional use of the updated apps, but for now the shortcuts support seems relatively light.

But one problem Apple users face year and year out is the ability to quickly download new iOS software.

To install watchOS 5, open the Watch app on your iPhone, go to My Watch General Software Update, and tap Download and Install. The phone will check for the update and notify you to download and install.
