Apple originally announced iOS 12 back at WWDC in June. The company has since gone through an extensive public and developer beta testing period.
iOS 12 includes numerous new features for iPhone and iPad users. Apple touts that one of its biggest focuses with the release is in regards to performance on older devices. Apps launch 40 percent faster, the keyboard appears 50 percent, and the camera opens up to 70 percent faster.
Further, iOS 12 includes a new AR-Kit based app from Apple called ‘Measure,’ which allows users to measure things just using their iPhone. There’s also a new Siri Shortcuts application, which lets any application expose quick actions to Siri.
