Apple said the new News, Stocks, Voice Memos, and Home apps were ported from iOS to the Mac desktop from their original iOS codebase, and starting with late 2019, these features should be available for the rest of iOS/Mac app developers as well.
It was rumoured for a long time that iOS 12 would focus on bug-fixes and smaller tweaks rather than offering a shake-up to the tried and tested formula. Oh, and Apple is going to replace your student ID card in the Apple Watch wallet to access the library, pay for meals, and more. Let's take a look and see. In the past, iOS updates have arrived in September at the same time as new iPhones.
If you want iOS 12 and you don't want to do it with an OTA update, Apple provides the option to download he full image and flash it to your device.
Finder has not been changed too much, but it will have a new Gallery View.
Other digital wellbeing features to launch with iOS 12 include enhancements to the "do not disturb" feature, including a bedtime mode that dims the display and hides all notifications from the lock screen until prompted in the morning.
As predicted, the next version of iOS is all about performance and stability, which means we aren't getting as many major new features as in years past.
Apple will group notifications so that they no longer appear one by one. iMessage, for example, will stick together as one notification that you can remove at once-rather than forcing a user to swipe notifications away one at a time. These show up in the left homescreen page and it searches through places on your device like Calendar and Mail to bring up suggestions. This is especially important since the iOS 12 update is coming to all iPhones and iPads that ran iOS 11. It has a complete redesign to look more like the App Store and looks a whole lot better.

Apple also added a related feature called Dynamic Wallpaper, which adjusts users' wallpaper according to the time of day. ARKit 2 was also announced along with some new privacy and security features.
Apple will offer more ways for people to limit the time they spend on iPhones while introducing features created to make its products even more indispensable. "We'd like to give you more control over how many notifications you receive", said Federighi.
Parents will be able to set limits for time their children set in apps, and get detailed reports regarding which apps are used. Sinc right now, macOS uses AppKit and iOS uses UIKit, porting apps between the systems is not trivial.
Meanwhile, the company is enabling group video conferencing with up to 32 people through FaceTime. During that time, app notifications will be blocked from showing up on the home screen.
Apple also intends to crack down on data companies' ability to identify specific devices by creating a unique fingerprint based on a device's settings, installed fonts and plug-ins.
As part of the anti-addiction initiative, there are also new parental controls that limit kids from using their devices. Safari, which already implemented several privacy and security features in its last iteration will go further by blocking even more tracking sources.
Face ID is also rumoured to be receiving a boost, with support for unlocking phones held horizontally. "They beg us to use their apps". Apple's adding a "walkie talkie" feature that lets you, well, use your Apple Watch to chat with friends like a walkie talkie (provided you have a Wi-Fi or cellular connection, that is).
