IOS 12 Beta vs iOS 11.4 Geekbench Performance Test on iPhone X

IOS 12 Beta vs iOS 11.4 Geekbench Performance Test on iPhone X

Apple also said the new features will be made available later this month as part of the iOS 12 public beta, including Activity Reports, App Limits and new Do Not Disturb and Notifications controls created to help customers reduce interruptions and manage screen time for themselves and their families.

There will be plenty of new features in the upcoming software update. Siri's automation feature is based on Workflow, a startup that was recently acquired by Apple. Apple shares closed up 0.8 per cent at US$191.83 (RM761.85) after the news, and rose to US$192.40 in extended trading.

Developers will also have access to this feature so expect plenty more applications to follow with a Dark Mode option later in the year.

App Store Connect features the modern design, matching the style of the App Store redesign in iOS 10.

This clever desktop picture automatically changes to reflect what time of the day it is. There's that bounce effect we've come to know and love in the iPhone X. The app seems to jump off from the screen, back to the app's icon (or the center of the Home screen).

In the real-world, most apps feel laggy on the iPhone 6 Plus I've been using primarily for testing. Apple says the primary focus this time around was on speed and performance.

Notification management is also now better on your lock screen, where it groups notifications from the same app, and hides away all of them when DnD is enabled, so that you won't be pestered with full of notifications when you face your lock screen.

The feature uses Wi-Fi calling, so you'll need an internet connection, but it does mean you can make multiple calls at the same time, so you can chat to a friend while on hold with a utility company, for example. This is all done with the objective of developing Apple's AI and getting more people to use Siri for complex tasks.

It appears that Apple has set a target to take the user experience on another level, and we believe Apple is on a winning side.

With the announcement, the company also stressed that it would not be merging the iPhone and Mac operating systems into one platform, which has been a speculation for years.

This visual feature now lets users see a bigger preview of the file along with all of its metadata, making it easier to manage media assets. Calls can also be handed over between devices by pressing a button. It's similar to how Google already encourages sharing through its own Photos app for iPhones and Android devices.
