IOS 12 is out now, might actually make your iPhone faster

Apple Watch Series 4 Vs Series 3, 44 / 42 mm Vs 40 / 38mm Size Comparison

If you can't find a fix you'll have to wait for Apple to roll out its first iOS 12 update, likely iOS 12.0.1.

We covered Walkie Talkie in more detail back in June, but the main selling point of the app is instant communication. It's possible that the device from which you initiate the installation may need to be running iOS 12. Said contact will receive a brief notification and a haptic buzz that lets them know a message is coming, and then they will hear your voice. However, once it's set to go, you should see the changes with iOS 12 right away. Even your iPhone 6 will run faster.

With this update, Apple says the camera will now launch up to 70 percent faster, and the keyboard 50 percent faster. Once it's done, you'll be prompted to download and install the update.

In terms of new features, there's a whole lot of new things. Yoga and hiking are new supported workout types.

Less exciting are new animojis, or animated emojis, including a feature called Memoji that allows users to create an animoji based on their own features. It lets you create multiple characters of yourself, with different characteristics and accessories.

Also, if you use your device in a BYOD setting, make sure you get the OK from the IT department before upgrading, in case you're unable to access the network or data you need. It's notable that Apple is calling the update "iOS 12" and not "HomePod 12" or "homeOS 12".

iOS is the world's largest AR platform and with iOS 12, Apple continues its rapid pace of delivering major advancements with new shared AR experiences, persistent AR and more dynamic object detection and image tracking. We've heard from readers with older devices that its performance improvements have given a new lease on life to the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and the like, and one TidBITS Talk reader said it solved his iOS 11 battery problems.

Apple iOS 12 is a free upgrade and is compatible with iPhones from 5S and above. What is surprising is how complete and well thought out these feature implementations are for day one releases. Even if you were testing the betas of Mojave, you probably weren't doing so on your main Mac. And because they last longer, you can keep using them. A new design makes it easier to capture, share and edit recordings.

The second method of updating iOS 12 is via iTunes.

Siri Shortcuts are available in the Settings app. We expect the iOS 11 downgrade to close up in the near future leaving iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users without a way back to the previous version of Apple's mobile operating system.
