All New Apple iOS12 Rolled Out, Apple Assures It Won’t Cripple Devices
Days after launching three new iPhones Apple has now turned their attention to current customers by rolling out it’s all new iOS 12 operating system for current model iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.
Apple have also moved to deliver improved photo management capability as well as introduced new Animoji characters, Siri Shortcuts and tweaks to boost the speed and responsiveness of older Apple hardware.
The big question for some owners is “Should I install the new update? Or will it slow down my phone?”
In the past Apple has stood accused of intentionally crippling its older devices with software updates, to subtly encourage customers to upgrade to the latest and greatest model — something that was confirmed, at least in part, with the revelations about Apple’s battery throttling late last year.
Past updates have also been described as looking better but not necessarily operating better.
The latest update is whole new look for the operating system, redesigned notifications and widgets, and redesigned apps — this year’s update puts the emphasis first on working better, instead of just looking better claims Apple.
‘Things you do all the time, like launching Camera and typing with the keyboard, happen faster than ever.’
Apple has added a number of new tools to its operating software, as well as upgrades to existing technology.
New features include Screen Time – an app that helps you track how much time you spend on your phone or tablet.
Screen Time reveals the total number of hours spent on your Apple device, as well as a breakdown of the number of times you’ve picked up your handset.
The App Limits feature allows you to set a specific amount of time to be in an app, and a notification will display when a time limit is about to expire.
Parents can access their child’s Activity Report right from their own iOS devices to understand where their child spends their time and can manage and set App Limits for them.
