It lives on the homescreen in iOS 12 and it seems quite easy to use. However, once it's set to go, you should see the changes with iOS 12 right away.

"All of these devices, including the iPhone 5S, run iOS 12, and iOS 12 is created to make your iPhone and iPad experience even better, even more responsive, faster... just better!" This is because its banner feature is performance, particularly when under heavy load.

The headline update of iOS 12 is the promise of a performance boost for pretty much all devices - no matter how old the hardware. The new feature is called "Express Cards with power reserve" and will enable supported cards to work with NFC when your phone has a tiny amount of power left. Apple is focusing on performance enhancements this time around instead of adding new features to the operating system. Like animoji, these are only available on iPhone X devices with facial recognition cameras. You can also manage your notification settings directly and you can have it "delivered quietly" for minimal distraction.

Apple's introducing features like ARKit 2 with iOS 12, which brings 3D object detection, ability to share ARKit objects through Mail and iMessage, and a new Measure app that helps you measure real-world objects. You don't need to do anything fancy-just move the iPhone around until it says you're ready to begin.

Once you download it, one of the new features-dubbed Screen Time-is meant to help you get a handle on your iPhone addiction. You can do that today with the release of iOS 12.

Davids warns Juventus, Barcelona: Pogba unconvincing
On Wednesday, Pogba further fueled rumors of his leaving when he said: "Who knows what will happen in the next few months". Pogba is now away on France duty and should feature in the Nations League clash with Netherlands in Paris on Sunday.

The idea behind Siri Shortcuts is the need to not directly open an app to get something done, before you can do it.

Despite nothing that really wows people, iOS 12 received largely positive reviews.

Arguably more impressive, though, is the new Photos app, which boasts more powerful search (so you can search for things like "restaurants", "museums", or "hiking") plus suggestions that adhere to these categories. You can earn points for every percent added to your activity rings each day.

If you have any questions about Shortcuts, feel free to reach out on Twitter or check out my new YouTube video on Siri Shortcuts as well. In theory, you could even have it set the thermostat at your house, provided your thermostat's app is integrated. Popular to-do list app Things is using Shortcuts to learn your routines. Just move your phone so the object is positioned under the dot at the center of your screen, and you may see a prompt to add a shape around the object. Or it might remind you to call your Mom on her birthday. The latest iteration of Apple's mobile operating system comes with a wide range of new features. According to Macrumors, the feature was removed during the beta testing period but is planned to be offered as part of a future iOS 12 update later in the fall. Even your iPhone 6 will run faster. Sadly, the app took a lot of messing around with to get anything close to an accurate measurement. He eats potato chips with chopsticks so he doesn't get grease on his mechanical keyboard.
