Apple iOS 12 update: How to download

The iOS 12 update is a 1.6GB download for the iPhone X. It's around the same for other iPhone and iPad models running the final version of iOS 11.

Apple first showed off iOS 12 in early June at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference keynote. Here's a more detailed look. This time, though, if you aren't using the latest iPhone devices, you don't have to be anxious about the performance. We recommend holding off on installing iOS 12 for a bit, just to make sure no pressing problems crop up. For older iPhones, Apple notes that apps now launch up to twice as fast, while camera launches are up to 70 percent faster, and the keyboard appears up to 50 percent faster. That's a ton of impressive gains, and even though I own the iPhone X, these performance upgrades are very noticeable on the iPhone X.

You'll find tvOS 12 by clicking into the Settings app on your Apple TV and then selecting Update Software.

Among other things, this expanded feature set includes automatic workout detection, fitness competitions, and quicker access to Siri without the need to speak the AI's wake word.

And if you have an iPhone X, you can download an Animoji of your choice.

You can always tune your notifications and see whether you want a particular app to send you ones in the future. Memoji allows you to create Animoji based on yourself, and Animojis can now mimic your facial expressions as well. The app has been created to make it easier for you to measure objects around you. Sending pictures and videos on iMessage also seems a little faster with iOS 12, by the way.

There are a lot of changes, including performance improvements, a new feature for tracking how much you use the phone, and more. 3D obect detection is going to make AR experiences really insane on iOS 12, as developers will be able to leverage objects in the real world and turn them into cool AR experiences.

If you're change-adverse, there's no harm-apart from reduced performance and not taking advantage of new and enhanced features like Screen Time and Do Not Disturb-in waiting a few more weeks, or even a month or two.

But wait, there's more. You'll see Update Requested on the screen, which means Apple has added you to its download queue. And because they last longer, you can keep using them. A new Apple-built Measure app for measuring objects using AR functionality is also a notable feature. By downloading the new Shortcuts app from the App store, it allows all types of apps add shortcuts to Siri.
