When is the iOS 12’s release date – luckily to any interested parties, you may be able to test it out now. The iOS 12 developer beta is accessible now, as of June 4, though the final consumer version is still likely months away from being released. To access to developer beta, one must be a registered Apple developer which comes at a cost of $99 annually. Therefore, it may be best just to wait. If the rumours are true though, the wait won’t be too long. The public beta is likely to be released at the end of June, with the final iOS 12 update to be deployed to new iPhones sometime in September at the earliest.


There are a number of features said to be included in the iOS update including increasing the speed of older iPhones by up to 70% on certain tasks. Improved reliability and performance are two big bullet points that Apple is advertising for this upgrade. In addition, it will be one of the most wide-spanning operating system updates in recent memory, moving across iPhones and iPads of many different varieties. There’s the potential in the iOS update to use it for multi-player gaming, with demonstrations of LEGO, Fender, Adobe, and Pixar showing to all be working on augmented reality (AR) with the arrival of this update.


Group FaceTime will be expanded in the update to include up to 32 participants. The Photos app will include a more advanced search engine, suggestions on who to share photos with, and more. Siri is seeing more advancement, allowing users to assign phrases to tasks, to find keys, ETA notifications plugging into predetermined real-time actions, and a library full of pre-configured shortcuts. There are countless other applications that will see updates through the release of this operation system, including Apple News, Stocks, Voice Memos, CarPlay, and more. All in all, iOS 12 update is shaping up to bring more innovation to Apple products while simultaneously rectifying the limitations of the prior upgrade.
