We've combined all the Big Picture Items and Secrets features and changes so you know exactly what to expect when iOS 12 hits the masses.
According to rumors, Apple would focus more on stability improvements for iOS 12 since iOS 11 was such a mess, with lots of bugs, sloppy updates, and promised features that were at least eight months late. And with the June 4 keynote, it's clear that this was the case because only a few major features, such as group FaceTime video calls, Do Not Disturb additions, and digital health tools, were announced.

When you wake up with tons of alerts, iOS 12 is no longer a problem. You can hide all notifications when you wake up and then gently disappear into them for the day.
Apple has found a way to group apps by iOS 9, but they have been removed in subsequent updates. Well, now it's back and better than before. Now notifications are grouped with the setting "Automatic". However, you can change these for individual apps so that they are "By App" or "Off." You can interact with them individually within the group or select the entire group at once.

As part of Digital Health, you can set time limits for individual apps in the "App Limits" menu that you frequently use use. Reminders will tell you that you have almost no time left to use the app, though you can ignore it if necessary.

If you're in the entire AR scene, this might be your favorite feature to watch out for.

This makes perfect sense as games usually dominate the iOS App Store. A must for them to be successful. There are currently no large numbers of AR games in the iOS App Store, but this feature will likely be released soon. And this could cause augmented reality games to finally reach mainstream status among their non-AR peers.

There are already some tools that can help protect your data from third-party advertisers. However, Safari in iOS 12 goes one step further and prevents Share buttons and comment widgets on Web pages from following you without your permission. In addition, advertisers can not track the unique features of your device. This means that they can not be targeted to ads based on your device model, and they can not realign ads on the web.
This is another reason why you want to reject LastPass or another third-party password manager. According to Apple: "Unique, complex passwords for all your apps and websites are automatically created and stored in Safari and apps – so you can use more secure passwords without having to remember anything."

Apple's app is not just for ebooks, but for audiobooks as well, and has been renamed "Apple Books" or "Books" on the home screen. This appeared in some early iOS 11 betas, but soon disappeared.

Apple has really made the difference with the iOS 12 update, no matter which iOS device you're using. To cite Apple, there is "up to 70% faster wiping to the camera, up to 50% faster keyboard display and up to 2x faster app startup at high workload." That's pretty fast considering that iOS 11 has slowed down many older devices. There are also smoother animations and the stock sheet is displayed twice faster at high workloads.
