Apple announced that iOS 12 will be released on September 17th 2018 and one of the most exciting aspects is the revised iBooks app.

iOS 12 focuses on improved performance on older devices, and indeed, it's supported by all of the devices that supported iOS 11.

After months of anticipation, Apple is finally rolling out its new iOS update, and iPhone users couldn't be more excited. The new update includes features like Memoji, Siri shortcuts and better notifications.

Leaving the news until the last minutes of this year's almost two-hour presentation on Wednesday, CEO Tim Cook revealed the launch date with little fanfare, mentioning it with about as much drama as he had the update to tvOS, the operating system that powers Apple TV. The new Mac operating system includes Stacks Desktop file organization, Quick Actions in Finder windows for marking up and editing documents, enhanced screenshot and recording with built-in markup and editing, system-wide Dark Mode for apps, Continuity for grabbing and editing photos you snap on your iPhone, and more. Users must agree to the terms and conditions in order to advance. After that, click on the iOS tab, which will give you the option to download the beta profile onto your handset.

Upgrade to watchOS 5 as soon as you upgrade to iOS 12. After that, head to the Settings and check for the update. After downloading the IPSW file, you can use iTunes to install it on your iPhone by updating your iPhone's firmware to iOS 12 GM.


Choose "install" and enter your iOS device passcode.

Once everything is done, your device should restart. Meaning, it is effectively the same software that will be released on Monday, September 17.

Holding onto your device is a good thing, generally speaking.

Users willing to wait a few more days to get the final iOS version will get a notification when the update is available. Alongside of new devices, however, comes new software updates, which have been in beta since WWDC in June. Using iCloud could result in iOS 12 overriding the iOS 11 backup, which won't be helpful in case things go wrong.
