The new Apple operating system update is available since last Monday.
The update, which promises more efficiency, speed and fluency, does not have drastic changes in its design and visualization, but it does seek to offer a much more intuitive interface with personalization features that allow the user to have greater control.
The software version is available on iphone SE phones, iphone 5s, iphone 6, iphone 6 Plus, iphone 6s, iphone 6s Plus, iphone 7, iphone 7 Plus, iphone 8, iphone 8 Plus and iphone X. It can also be downloaded on the ipad mini 2, Mini 3, mini 4, ipad 5, ipad Air, ipad Air 2, ipad Pro 9.7, ipad Pro 12.9 (1st generation), ipad Pro 10.5, ipad Pro 12.9 (2nd generation) and IPad (2018).
Before you install the new update it is important that you make a backup. For that you have two options. The first is via ICloud, you must enter ‘ settings ‘, ‘ Apple ID ‘, ‘ iCloud ‘, ‘ Your device ‘ and choose the Copy option in ICloud. The other possibility is to connect your device to a computer and make backup from itunes.
To download IOS 12 go to ‘ Settings ‘, ‘ General ‘ and choose the ‘ Software Update ‘ option. Please note that the process may be prolonged during the first few hours of the release and some of the functions may be late in flowing normally.
One of the most outstanding aspects of this update Apple is speed. Users will not only be able to open the camera with 70 percent more speed, but also when there is a lot of workload, the apps will open twice as fast.
Control your time
The Apple Company also emphasized the personalization possibilities that allow for greater control over the time users spend browsing the devices. With the new ‘ time on screen ‘ tool you will know how many minutes you spent using the apps you have installed on your mobile phone.
Siri, the smarter
Handling of notifications will now have a more intuitive and agile operation. Message chains and notifications will be grouped together to be able to see them all at a glance. By just holding down a message alert, you can quickly respond by using an emoji.
On the other hand, Siri will make smarter suggestions by recommending you upcoming actions taking into account your behavior with notifications.
New in the photos
Thanks to IOS 12, the photo application will recognize if you made a trip or attended a special event and in that sense you suggest to share those photos with the other people that appear in the images. With the feature ‘ highlighted photos ‘ you will be able to see a selection of the best photos and by means of ‘ effects suggestions ‘ you will receive tips that will help you to increase the quality.
Privacy and security
To ensure higher levels of privacy, Apple added improvements to the Safari browser that include from preventing advertisers from collecting information about their device so that they do not show advertising to prevent Share buttons and Web page comment widgets keep track without your permission.
As for the storage of passwords, besides being able to save them in the keychain of ICloud so that they are available in all your Apple devices, IOS 12 will warn you when a key is repeated.
