How to use iOS 12's fun new Memoji feature

Today, Apple released the Golden Master of the iOS 12 Shortcuts app. Those who were running the public beta would have already got the golden master of the iOS 12.

There's no way to downgrade to anything older than iOS 11.4.1 which means those of you coming from an older version of iOS need to be extremely careful when and if you decide to move to iOS 12. The Camera app now launches 70% faster, the keyboard shows up 50% faster, and typing should be smoother with less lag. Even your iPhone 6 will run faster. Yoga and hiking are new supported workout types.

You can record 30-second video clips of your Memoji talking (or singing!) and send it in a conversation, just as you would any other Animoji.

Memojis are interactive characters that can be created to look like anyone you want.

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!

While there have been instances in the past of iOS being unkind on batteries for one reason or another, from our testing and experience with iOS 12 it appears that is not the case this time around. The OS version was introduced back in June during WWDC 2018 conference. We expect the iOS 11 downgrade to close up in the near future leaving iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users without a way back to the previous version of Apple's mobile operating system.

To add to that, the company is making it possible to schedule Do Not Disturb, with added controls to the feature.

But wait, there's more. The upgrade offers improved performance, new automation features, and more. And because they last longer, you can keep using them.

iOS 12 - What time will iOS 12 be released?
