Avid Apple users would have probably gone crazy when they heard that their beloved operating system is getting another update with the recent announcement and subsequent rollout of the iOS 12 early build. Dubbed the iOS 12 Developer’s Beta, this developing software was still fresh after having been released before July last month. Wanting ourselves to be in the loop, we took a chance with the update by installing the Developer’s Beta to our own nifty iPhone. Who could download the update? Anyone. But as a caveat, keep in mind that this particular update to iOS is still in beta and thus may have experience-breaking bugs and glitches that are common to any software in this stage. If you are not keen with the idea of using your personal smart device as a test subject, you could probably stall your attempt of installing iOS 12 in your unit until probably September, which is the typical month when Apple makes a full release of an iOS update. What We Know (So Far) You may be an iOS device user yourself but not every iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch is compatible with the update. However, as a general rule of the thumb: if your current iOS device runs on iOS 11, the chance is good that it’s also compatible with the iOS 12 Developer’s Beta and the finalized version of the iOS 12 when it gets released. But if you are specifically looking for a list of compatible devices for the update, CNET made an article about it here. Although still in its early stages, the iOS is showing great promise as a probable replacement for the iOS 11. The iOS 12’s main selling point is its overall smoother and faster interface which is, truly enough, best experienced to be believed. Unlike previous iterations of the iOS which get new features per newer installment which only adds to the intricacy and subsequent bogging down of the OS, Apple seems to be focused on performance this time around. This means that apps are expected to run relatively faster and scrolling should be a smoother experience while also significantly offsetting the issue of crashing with the system. It is worth reiterating that the version of iOS 12 we had experienced was still in its beta stage which makes the overall promise still incomplete in what it could offer in full. Feature Highlights Making a faster and smoother system is not only iOS 12’s unique offering for the iOS users. There are also some significant upgrades that are happening in the OS’s core features as well. A smarter Siri: At its current state, Siri is already a smart A.I. But this does not necessarily mean that it could not get any better—it does. To make Siri smarter in iOS, however, you have to first teach it how to, such as by giving the A.I. custom commands it can execute for you. Usage monitoring: Ever wondered how addicted you are to your iOS device based simply on the number of times you picked it up or how long you run certain apps in the day? With iOS 12, your device can tell you about your device usage habit and possibly gauge yourself whether or not you’re addicted to it. Better notifications: Forget about your iOS device having to alert you on every notification you get, especially unimportant ones. In iOS 12, you can now choose to filter the notifications you get. Updates for Facetime, Messages: Messages app may not be getting many updates in iOS 12 but this is because FaceTime gets the most of it. Memoji: Being able to see animated figures called Animoji in an iPhone device is fun. But being able to make your own Animoji—called Memoji—is an altogether better experience, exclusive for iOS 12.   The post iOS 12 Developer’s Beta Review appeared first on ForeShop.net.
