new version of iOS 12, in addition to a number of gadgets as well as other updates.The importance of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is never lost on people who love the brand immensely. But this year’s conference was slightly more special, for Apple did not hold back from using this opportunity to the maximum, by announcing the launch of the next version of the iOS. Every iPhone development company out there is more than excited to have seen the unveiling of the
We already know that iOS application development is going to bear the positive effect of this new development. IOS app developers across the world are already all ready to work with this brand version, and create unique apps and solutions along the way.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look on how iOS 12 and its newest features will have an effect on the valued users of Apple.
- A Better Performing OS
Keeping its promise of speed and optimum performance, Apple has yet again failed to disappoint its patrons!
Making the swiping to the camera up to 70% faster, displaying of the keyboard up to 50% quicker, and getting launching of an application at up to twice the speed it was before – iOS 12 is all set to offer an impressive performance to its valued customers.
In addition, with more experience, the apps are being expected to become more responsive. The best thing though is, you can access all the set of improvements on all Apple devices, even those as old as iPad Air, and iPhone 5S!
- ARKit Just Got Better
One of the biggest changes is being experienced by the ARKit in iOS 12. ARKit has made the Augmented Reality seem so real this time, that users are experiencing an all-immersive AR experience on their devices.
This tool is able to use details fetched by the motion sensors as well as the camera data, in order to better analyse the iPad or iPhone surroundings.
The fact that you can now share your virtual experience of AR with all your friends through emails and messages, that is send them AR objects digitally, is what makes this feature even more amazing.
An AR app called Measure is also an interesting addition to the list, for it literally measures the real-life objects just by pointing the camera at them.
- FaceTime with up to 31 of Your Friends!
FaceTime has got better too, this time around. It’s being said that Apple’s FaceTime will now be supporting videos and audios with up to 32 people, simultaneously.
In addition, for the sake of more clarity of conversation, the tile of the individual seeking will automatically get enlarged.
This will allow the conversation to go on smoothly, without any kind of confusion ensuing amongst the participants of the conversation.
You will also be able to begin a Group FaceTime session directly from the group thread in Messages, or join an ongoing conversation anytime you want.
- Create an Animoji with Memoji
Another new and interesting feature is Memoji, which allows the users to create an Animoji for them. It’s interesting because it allows you to change the color of your hair, skin, get a different hairstyle, a new headwear, and so on.
So, the look of your Animoji will totally depend upon how you perceive it, or how your mood dictates it to be.
Moreover, users can now get as many alter egos as they want, which can then be implied in FaceTime and Messages.
Although, the feature is available to iPhone X users only right now, other devices are soon going to catch up with it too. With four new Animoji, that include Ghost, Tiger, T-Rex, and Koala, it seems Animojis are going to be super fun for all Apple users.
- A Smarter Siri
The intelligence of Siri takes a hike in the new iOS 12. From setting up your schedules with the help of third party apps, to streamlining the things you do most often, to helping you create shortcuts through the app Shortcut – Siri will now be managing your daily routine much more efficiently than before.
- Better Control on Phone Usage
This new version is also great for people who want to spend lesser time on their smart phones, and parents who want to keep a check on how their children are using their phones.
With the new feature Screen Time, not only can parents know what websites their kids surf, or what online games they play, but also restrict their phone usage time.
The same goes for adults who are looking to curtail the time they spend on mobile navigation, which can now set the time limit for phone access, via their family Apple ID.
- Enliven Your Conversations
To make our conversation on Messages and Face Time more exciting, Apple has introduced a great feature that it calls Liven up the Conversations.
Used with the help of in-app camera, this feature allows users to share photos and videos instantly, while adding text effects, stickers Animoji, and filters on them as well.
The filter options include effects such as black and white, watercolor, and comic book. You can even use speech bubbles, and go with various shapes, like hearts, stars, and arrows.
- Manage Your Notifications Better
No more will unwanted notification bug you. With iOS 12, you can manage your notifications, right from your Lock Screen, so that they don’t irritate or annoy you at all.
Your phone experience and the way you deal with notifications will further allow Siri to make apt suggestions to you, regarding the future notifications you get.
This way, it will get easier for you to deal with notifications, assigning a priority level to them, and only letting the important ones come your way.
- The Do not Disturb Feature
Using the new do not Disturb feature in iOS 12, you can make sure no one bothers you.
So, if you’re in an important meeting, or there’s a particular location where you need to be left undisturbed, then this is the feature that will help you.
Even when you’re retiring to bed, you can make use of the Do not Disturb Bedtime option, which will first off fade the display of your phone, and then put it on silent mode, till the time you unlock it the next day.
- A Smarter Search for Your Photos
With iOS 12, you will now have a smarter way to search your photos, as you will get search suggestions to help you find the exact picture you were looking for.
Even without typing, you will get an access to locations, recent events, people, and such; though, if you type, you will get a better and a more accurate result.
- An Enhanced Sense of Security
Apple has always been a strong advocate of a strict security; and this new version will not be an exception to that.
If anything, with the help of Safari, you will be able to prevent any comment widgets or Share buttons to track your data without you having consented to it. Security and privacy concerns, therefore, will be handled much well with iOS 12 on the roll.
