Updating your iPhone for iOS 12 [iOS 12 released]

We should be receiving it tomorrow. 18 Sep 18, Tuesday, 1AM

Countdown timer
https://www.timeanddate.com/countdow...=cursive&csz=1



Prepare your backups!
Follow the instructions here.

What to expect?
Speed up the things you do every day.
Up to 70% faster swipe to Camera
Up to 50% faster keyboard display
Up to 2x faster app launch under heavy workload

Revamped Notifications
Notifications in real time from the Lock screen, send notifications from a specific app to Notification Centre or turn them off altogether.
Siri also makes intelligent suggestions about your alerts based on how you interact with them.
All of these are now grouped neatly and intelligently

Improved Privacy & Security Features
Safari now prevents Share buttons and comment widgets on web pages from tracking you without your permission. Safari also prevents advertisers from collecting your device’s unique characteristics, so they can’t identify your device or retarget ads to you across the web.
Digital Health & Device Addiction

Do not Disturb
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.

Screen Time App
Track your screen time on what Apps you are heavily addicted to.

Siri Shortcuts
Make custom commands with Siri to execute a series of Action all together with a phase or worded command

More features can be found below,

The GM might receive a patch update. There was a crash bug reported on the internet that affects all even GM build. The crash involves clicking a URL link and it will load up a website and crash the phone, causing a restart. But we shall see soon.

Generally, it is advised not to do so. For Flash storage health and also you waste a lot of time restoring everything. This should only be done as a last resort if there are issues with your device.

Also recommended is not to do a hard reset after the update.
Just leave it plugged it and let the phone do it’s thing.

If you feel that the phone is still sluggish after the update. Consider doing a reboot, not a hard reset.
If all else fails. Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset all settings.

This doesn’t wipe out your data. But resets things like keyboard preferences, alarms to the default state

If you’re asking what time it might be released.
It’s most likely Tuesday 1am (SGT).

Also thank you OP for creating this.

Also if you do a fresh reset or restore, it will take another 1-2 days for iOS to reindex itself and etc, and in the mean time it will drain your battery quite a bit as well.

Funny, I got a ping on my Apple Watch saying that watchOS 5 is ready to install when I have already installed the GM build.

Hopefully they will still open iOS 11.4.1 after they release iOS 12 for a certain period of time.

How’s the battery life of iOS12? Heard that the battery drain is quite bad with the performance improvements. Is it true?

Not really. So far so good. A lot of older devices feels relevant and up to decent speed now.

For a short duration the signing of the old version will be available. Last time they stopped signing rather early.
