Apple's next major iOS release for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch was unveiled at WWDC 2018 and is slated to hit in mid-September 2018, a week after Apple unveiled the new iPhone model series. We've summarized all the Big Picture Items and Secrets features and changes we can find so you'll know exactly what to expect when iOS 12 hits your iPhone on or around September 19th.
Rather than introducing many new features, Apple spent a lot of time on stability enhancements for iOS 12 because iOS 11 was such a mess, with numerous bugs, sloppy updates, and promised features that were at least eight months late. This means Apple has postponed some of its biggest updates to the iOS 1
For now, here's everything Apple includes in iOS 12 for iPhone. Some have been highlighted by Apple in recent months while others are hidden below the surface, hidden in the view – some features actually came from our wish list. Note, however, that all iOS 12 features listed below may be pushed back to iOS 13 or a later 12.x update if they are not ready for prime time in mid-September when iOS 12 comes out.

With Apple's new ARKit 2.0, you can measure real objects like desks and tables with the camera on your iPhone. With the new built-in Measure app, you can retrieve the dimensions of a 3D object before Augmented Reality. It's not 100% accurate right now (the keyboard below is actually about 17 inches), but hopefully things will get better when it's ready for prime time.
PS: The "level" previously in the Compass app has been moved to fairs
If you're in the entire AR scene This could be your favorite feature that you should look out for. Common experiences for AR games are stored in ARKit 2.0 so that developers can play other games like Pokémon GO directly with each other.
This makes perfect sense because games dominate the iOS App Store, and multiplayer gameplay is usually a must to follow. 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.
. 3 ARKit 2.0 Has 3D Object Recognition
Another enhancement offered by ARKit 2.0 over its predecessor is the ability to detect 3D objects through the camera lens. The AR app you use can specify exactly which object is in the view, such as A couch, and how it is aligned based on your device model. 3D objects can also be used to trigger certain experiences. For example, an AR app may look for DVD or Blu-ray and then show you a trailer for the movie as soon as it discovers it or refers you to the book on which it is based.
What does that mean for you? Well, if you use AR apps like Snapchat, Messages, and FaceTime, filters can work better with your face for a more seamless look. It supports eye tracking in iOS 12, so it knows exactly where to look, as well as tongue and wink detection (see "Detecting Tongue and Angle" in the iPhone X section).
This is almost exciting as a multiplayer support. With this feature in ARKit 2.0, developers can use other experiences than just multiplayer features in other ways. For example, if you leave a note at a specific location in an AR app, it may later be displayed by another user at the same location. Apple also notes that it could be used as "more examples" to "create an Easter egg virtual search or a persistent AR art exhibit".
Previously, virtual objects displayed on the screen of your favorite AR app would look the same no matter where your camera was pointing. Now, in iOS 12, ARKit 2.0 adds scene reflection, meaning that virtual objects show reflections over them, if necessary, based on your current environment, just like a real object.
ARKit 2.0 adds a new file format to the mix that allows developers to create virtual content for mobile devices. However, this format is also supported in the Apple ecosystem. This means that you can "quickly search" applications such as Mail, News, and Safari to quickly view AR content and animations.
The music app has a new reverse lyrics search option. It's basically like Shazam, but instead of figuring it out, actually playing it, it finds it through the words that are in your head. Best of all, you do not need an Apple Music subscription to benefit from it. However, you will need one to preview the results to see if they are the ones you are looking for.
Interactive notifications in iOS let you quickly respond to a text or iMessage, but you really could not do more without having to jump to the News app itself. Now Apple gives us a new feature for these quick response notifications: tapback capabilities. You can only double-tap on a message in a thread within messages to add a reaction emoji, but now you can double-tap on an advanced notification.
While Apple has found a way to group apps into iOS 9, 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.
If you are on the lock screen or in the pull-down notifications, and you tap a notification or notification group, tap the omission symbol (•••) in the upper-right corner of the screen Notification to manage notifications for this app. You can also just swipe left and choose "Manage" instead. This new feature is called " Instant Tuning".
You can choose Silent Delivery. This means that future notifications will not be displayed on the lock screen, the existing banners, or any sound, but they will still be displayed in your Notification Center and as a badge app icon. If you have set to "quiet," you can also go back and select "Prominently deliver" to restore it to normal. If you choose Shut Down, notifications will be completely disabled. Settings shows you the app's notification settings, where you can customize more items.
12. Apps can be accessed through & # 39; Critical Alerts & # 39; (Anti-Malware)
While this has not yet been implemented, Apple allows selected developers to break the "Do Not Disturb" mode when enabled by the user. Not all apps can opt for it, but only apps that focus on specific needs such as medical apps for doctors. In apps like these, you can choose to ignore Do Not Disturb and Silent Mode, or behave like any other app.
Siri suggests shortcuts for apps on the lock screen and in the search area. For example, if you are late for a scheduled meeting, Siri may suggest that you write a text to the other participants to let them know that you are running late. If you've missed an important call, Siri may suggest that you call her back. When you type "photos" in the search area, you'll be able to see suggestions such as "View Latest Photos" and "View Photos."
You can also go into the "Siri & Search" settings and select from some recommended shortcuts based on your current usage. These are not the same as the Siri suggestions above, but they are just as useful if you see one you would use in the end. If you add one, you can enter a new expression for it, which you can use with Siri.
The new Shortcuts app lets you create your own Siri shortcuts so you can quickly meditate with your favorite soothing app by using only one assigned shortcut. The Shortcuts app is currently available only to developers, not public beta testers, but will be available to all in September.
Another small but exciting change, Siri can be put on an Irish or South African accent, not just American, Australian and British. This applies to both men and women with an American language.
Instead of the "Reminders" tab, there's now a "For You" tab where your reminders are stored. It also includes feature photos, effects suggestions, shared album activity, and sharing suggestions.
When you search for a photo in the Photos app, Siri provides suggestions based on previous searches or the current time. Apple says, "Even before you start typing, you'll see suggestions for current events, people, and places, and as you type, the results are smarter and more powerful, and you can refine them by adding multiple keywords." 19659004] 19. There's a Revised Import Tool
If you're taking photos with your DSLR and importing into your photos to use with Instagram, Snapchat, or whatever, you've got a better overall experience now , The new import tool for iOS 12 lets you view photos in full-screen mode, loading pictures and videos much faster from the memory card. You will learn which media elements you have already imported.

20. More colors are available in markup
If you've previously used "markup" for a photo, a screenshot, a PDF, or other image file in photos to draw or input the image, you can only choose between six different colors. Now you have the same six colors as the default selection, but there's one more than you can choose any color from the palette, so you went from six loose options to 120 different colors. Not too shabby. Markup is also available in Mail and other apps, not just photos, so love is distributed across supported apps.
If you have a iPhone X, you know what a hassle it is to close an app. You had to access the App Switcher first, just like other iPhones (although it's a swipe gesture, not a double-click on the Home button), then press and hold an app card to see the red minus. To call up keys. Then either tap the red minus buttons or swipe up the map.
Now, just like other iPhone models, you can easily access the App Switcher and swipe up the map … stop pushing and hold first! You can even swipe up several cards at the same time.
22. You Can Have a Second Facial ID Scan (iPhone X Only)
If you wear sunglasses a lot, have a favorite hat that is always on your head, or have a nice collection of wigs, those are the things that face You can stumble upon ID and, instead, enter your password. Now, iOS 12, it makes Apple easier to work in these cases by adding an "alternative look". Best of all, this new look does not even have to be you – it could be someone else's face.
Before you end face detection after a few failed attempts to scan your face , you must enter your passcode. Now, in iOS 12, this is still the case, only you can still try to re-try Face ID until it works. Just swipe up from the bottom of the screen when you see the passcode buttons and try again.
The iOS 11.3 update for iPhone X was released with four new Animoji characters in addition to the already existing 12 shipped. These four were designed for international users, and iOS 12 has just released a few more, globally interesting Animoji. Now there are four more: Ghost, Kuala, Tiger and T-Rex.
25. Tongue & Wink detection! (iPhone X only)
If new Animojis are not enough for you, thanks to Apple's new "tongue detection" feature, you can now rock with your very best Gene Simmons imitator, which finally supports Animojis' tongue. There is also "Wink Detection" for all your flashing needs.
26. There is an improved Animoji interface (iPhone X only)  With new Animojis comes a new interface, if you have not already noticed some of the screenshots above. Instead of having the vertical selector on the page to select your animoji, you can now simply swipe left or right. You can also swipe up to expand the menu and display them all at the same time.
New Animojis are always cool, but Apple simply brought all Bitmoji over with their version of Snapchat's augmented reality avatars. Apple's version is called "Memoji" and can be completely customized to your liking. Unlike a Snapchat bitmoji, you can have as many memojis as you like.
28. Less Accidental Screenshots (iPhone X Only)
It was far too easy to accidentally make a screenshot on the iPhone X. Each time you grab the iPhone, you may accidentally press the Side and Volume Up buttons together and take a screenshot. In iOS 12, Apple has made it difficult to accidentally trigger by allowing only screenshots when the screen is on. However, I have to admit that because of "Raise to Wake" I still make a lot of random screenshots
News in iOS 12
Even if you do not have the iPhone X, you can still use Apple's new sticker support that can be added with iMessage sticker packs.
As with stickers Everyone will enjoy the new filters that Apple has to offer, including comic and watercolor filters.
Not only can you write words to people, but now you can add animated captions … words, sentences, hashtags, whatever … to photos and videos that you share in messages. 19659105] 84 cool new features of iOS 12 that you do not know ” width=”532″ height=”532″ style=”max-width:532px;height:auto;”/>
