iOS 12 is designed to make your iPhone and iPad experience even faster, more responsive, and more delightful. Here are the latest features and improvements in the world's most advanced mobile operating system.
Whether you're using your iPhone or iPad, iOS has been enhanced for a faster and more responsive experience all around. Things you do all the time, like launching Camera and typing with the keyboard, happen faster than ever. And there are even more significant improvements when you're doing a lot on your device at once. These enhancements improve performance on all supported devices, going all the way back to iPhone 5s and iPad Air.
FaceTime now supports video and audio with up to 32 people at once. The tile of the person speaking gets larger automatically, so you'll never lose track of the conversation. You can start Group FaceTime right from a group thread in Messages or join an active one at any time.
Now you can easily create a Memoji to match your personality and mood. You can make as many alter egos as you want to use in Messages and FaceTime.
Choose from four new Animoji - koala, tiger, ghost, or T. rex - to inject some fun into your next Messages thread or FaceTime call. Go ahead and wink or even stick out your tongue, because Animoji are also more expressive than ever.
Add personality to Messages and FaceTime right from the in-app camera. Quickly create and share a photo or video with Animoji, Memoji, cool filters, animated text effects, fun stickers, and more.
ARKit 2 makes it possible for developers to create more immersive augmented reality experiences -- even ones that multiple people can experience simultaneously.4 AR objects can now be sent with Messages and Mail, then viewed in the real world. And a new AR app in iOS called Measure helps you measure real-world objects just by pointing your camera at them.
Apps help us do so many extraordinary things that we can sometimes lose track of how much we use them. Screen Time helps give you a better understanding of the time you and your kids spend using apps, visiting websites, and on your devices overall. So you can make the most of how you choose to spend time on your iPhone or iPad.
iOS12 gives you more ways to manage your notifications than ever, but there are times when you don't want to be disrupted by any alerts, messages, or calls at all. So now you can set Do Not Disturb just for a meeting or while you're at a location, and it will automatically turn off as soon as your event ends or you leave that place.
Siri can now intelligently pair your daily routines with third-party apps to suggest convenient shortcuts right when you need them.5 So if you typically pick up a coffee on the way to work, Siri will learn your routine and suggest when to place your order from the Lock screen. You can also run shortcuts with your voice or create your own with the Shortcuts app.
