As with most iOS updates, some are useful and some are less so, but each is a piece of what Apple calls the "latest version of the most advanced mobile operating system".

Make sure you've backed up your iPhone or iPad before you download and install the update - otherwise you risk losing your data.

Historically, nearly every time Apple releases a major new software version, there are huge and enormous bugs for some people that sometimes make your phone unusable for a few days until they fix the problem. A notification will let you know when a time limit is close to expiration. The fact that they don't have more problems is quite remarkable. As you make changes, a live preview at the top of the screen will update, helping you understand exactly what your final setup will look like when invoking shortcuts.

The iOS 12 was unveiled at Apple's WWDC conference in June. Apple has promised that even older iPhones, like the 6s, etc will work smoothly with the new iOS 12. You also don't have to put up with force-closing apps as much on this new device, as that procedure has been improved upon as well. It's basically a ton of fixes under the hood.

Apple will release iOS 12 on Monday, September 17, which comes with hundreds of new features such as the all-new and customizable Control Center, powerful multitasking features for iPad, new Files app, AR experiences using ARKit and lots more. You can find it by launching the Settings app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. AR files can now be viewed almost anywhere in iOS, including apps like Messages, Safari, Mail, Files and News. Let it install tvOS 12 whenever it wants, or force it to update right away in Settings System Software Updates.

Once you've downloaded and installed the new software, check out our guide to the 15 best features iOS 12 has to offer.

With Streaks' latest update all the habits you track can be assigned a custom phrase to remind you what needs to be done or what is completed! We'll be publishing coverage of the new features in all these upgrades in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned. And then do the upgrade in a week. Unfortunately for certain users, iPhone 5 or iPhone 5c will not be eligible. iPad generation eligibility includes the iPad 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 2.
