iOS 12 is the twelfth major release of the iOS mobile operating system developed by Apple Inc., being the successor to iOS 11. It was announced at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference on June 4, 2018. It is similar in aesthetics to iOS 11, but contains numerous performance, battery life improvements and security updates, in addition to added functionalities within some apps. It was released to the public on September 17, 2018.
iOS 12 was introduced by Craig Federighi at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference keynote address on June 4, 2018. The first developer beta version was released after the keynote presentation, with the first public beta releasing three weeks after on June 25, 2018.
Performance optimizations were made in order to speed up common tasks across all supported iOS devices. Tests done by Apple on an iPhone 6 Plus showed apps launching 40 percent faster, the system keyboard activating 50 percent faster, and the camera opening 70 percent faster.
A new feature allows users to track how much time they are spending on their devices and what they are doing. The system provides reports broken into categories and timeframes.
A dedicated application in iOS 12 allows users to set up Shortcuts, automated actions that the user can ask Siri to perform. It replaces the Workflow app that Apple acquired in March, 2017.
The Voice Memos and Stocks apps are now available for iPads.
Messages in iOS 12 introduces a new type of customizable Animoji called "Memoji" which allows a user to create a 3D character of themselves. Apple also introduced Koala, Tiger, Ghost and T-Rex Animojis.
A future software update, slated for later in autumn 2018, will add the ability to include up to 32 people in a FaceTime conversation.
Notifications are now grouped and have a "manage" tab, to turn off notifications for that app or to deliver them quietly.
Do Not Disturb now has a feature called "Do Not Disturb During Bedtime" to automatically send notifications to history, send calls to voicemail (can be changed to Favorites/Repeated calls) and has a darker screen to assist sleep. However, if the user taps the screen (or when the user's wake time passes) notifications are shown.
The Voice Memos and Stocks apps are now on iPads. Voice Memos and Stocks have had a design refresh, and the latter has integrated Apple News.
Screen Time is a new feature in iOS 12 that can record the time spent on the device as well as for certain types of apps.
