More visible features include Siri Shortcuts for creating custom automated actions you control with your voice, easier to manage Notifications, Screen Time management, new Animoji characters, Memoji custom Animoji characters you make, auto-fill support for third-party password managers, and more.

That said, you've been waiting this long, so what's another week or two?

It seems that we can never have a major iOS update land without there being a large proportion of people report that they are experiencing significantly worse battery life after the update when compared to the version of iOS they just came from. If any widespread issues affect the iOS community, we'll be sure to pass on the details. A feature called Screen Time will show you how much you've used your apps today and let you set up App Limits if you feel that you need more control over your app usage.

The iOS 12 was unveiled at Apple's WWDC conference in June.

Apple's newest mobile operating system for iPhones and iPads, iOS 12, is about to launch. Simply put your device on charging and go to Settings General Software Update. iOS will automatically check for an update and if iOS 12 is available then a prompt will allow you to download and install the update.

Before getting the iOS 12 update on your iPhone, it is recommended that you backup your device either using iTunes or iCloud. You can also plug it into your computer and update it via iTunes if you want to do it that way.

Then click on "check for software" and then download and install the update on your device.

iOS 12 will be available on Monday.

This will start the process of downloading iOS 12.

Alternatively, you can connect the iPhone or iPad to a PC running iTunes and do the upgrade from there. At 1.5 GB, it's a big download, but it installed reasonably quickly. Apple's retooled version of this app is Siri Shortcuts. Unfortunately for certain users, iPhone 5 or iPhone 5c will not be eligible. iPad generation eligibility includes the iPad 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 2.

You also get more options for managing notifications, and iOS notifications are finally grouped by app. Considering both pieces of software are in the final draft stage, it's likely Siri Shortcuts will arrive alongside the new software update. It's a 340 MB update on my Apple Watch Series 2.

In 2017, Apple acquired Workflow, an app that lets your iPhone quickly carry out numerous tasks at once.
