The latest iOS beta has been seeded to developers. Unlike the most recent public release of iOS 12.1.3, the next step promises to contain at least some new features for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. iOS 12.2 has already been pored over by developers, revealing a few items on the horizon for Apple fans.
Frequent users of FaceTime may have noticed a big change on their iPhone or iPad. Apple moved the flip camera button, changing a one-touch action into a multi-step process that requires tapping the info button to get further options. Now with the release of iOS 12.1.1, this short-lasted FaceTime nightmare is in the rear view mirror.
Now that over half of active iOS devices are already running iOS 12, Apple is rolling out the next update. iOS 12.0.1 will include minor fixes for some issues that have been causing inconvenience for some iPhone owners. For those who have not yet upgraded to iOS 12, it comes highly recommended. iOS 12 optimizes much of the behind-the-scenes operation of any compatible iOS device.
Apple has officially launched iOS 12 for all compatible devices. When it comes to the iPhone, any model from the iPhone 5s and later can take advantage of the latest firmware free of charge. iOS 12 promises to enhance the speed and stability of older devices and some of the most-used apps.
While most of the attention lately has focused on the iOS 12 beta releases, Apple has rolled out the latest version of iOS 11. The software update, iOS 11.4.1, is available for the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and HomePod. Apple Watch owners can also update their devices now, by installing watchOS 4.3.2.
