All the iOS 12 users are now entitled to install this top-notch operating system to evaluate the latest features. However, it is worth noting that the updated features are yet in beta only and prior to its ultimate release, there are some minor issues that are still to be resolved. The new Emojis and Animojis, ARkit 2.0, Group face time, Siri Shortcuts, and Do Not Disturb are some of its major benefits to name a few.

4. Sharing the memories has become easy

Now, another interesting fact is that: if the people you’re sharing the photos with operate iOS 12 then their set would search for the pertinent images to share it with you and so every person gets all the photos they clicked in multiple iOS mobiles (an amazing feature for essential events like wedding ceremony, isn’t it?).

5. Siri shortcuts are available

8. Do not disturb mode

Activating this mode won’t let your mobile to display any message, call, or other notification while you’re busy with your work or sleeping. You can easily turn on the normal mode in the morning when you’re ready to check the dozens of notifications.

9. Enjoy a FaceTime with more than 31 people at once

Though as per the recent reports, the iOS notification system is still comparatively less significant than that of the Android handset, they are easy to operate. Notifications can now easily be grouped under the applications. You can also avail the instant management feature to avoid the unwanted app’s bugging.

11. It helps you to ascertain the time you’ve operated your phone

If you’ve suddenly realized that it has been over a week, you’re continuously using your Apple rather than accomplishing your essential day to day tasks, screen time feature of iOS 12 is there to remind you. Tracking the apps you’ve been using and screening the amount of data you’ve already used scrolling down the Instagram posts can definitely help you to identify which application is consuming most of your precious hours.
