Apple announced iOS 12 earlier this month. iOS is Apple’s dedicated software for its mobile devices, i.e. the iPhones. The latest update has brought a number of additional features to their smartphones, including:

  1. A new Augmented Reality (AR) application that lets you measure the dimensions of objects
  2. Memoji, a feature which lets you create a talking avatar (emoji) that can be used in chats/messaging
  3. Performance upgrades that help your phone run faster
  4. Screen Time, a feature that shows the amount of time you spend on your phone
  5. An addition to Facetime’s capabilities by adding support of 32 people in one video chat session
  6. Siri shortcuts will show you customized suggestions based on how you use your phone
  7. Tweaks to the Photos application enables suggestions of who to share photos with

iOS 12 is expected to release to the public in the coming weeks. If you want to get the software beforehand, you’re going to have to sign up for the beta program. The beta program opened up yesterday and is open to iPhone and iPad users. To get the beta software, here’s what you should do:

  1. Go to Apple’s Beta website from here and enroll your device
  2. Once done, you’ll see an option to upgrade the software in your phone’s settings

It is highly recommended for you to backup your phone’s data before upgrading to the beta software considering the risks involved with the beta software. Possibilities of the software facing a bug and malfunctioning are really high, so it’s better to take a precaution than to get worried afterward.
