Apple has unveiled their new software during the 2018 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at the San Jose Convention Center on June 4, 2018, in San Jose, California. Apple has also unleashed the latest version of its operating system for the iPhone and iPad iOS 12, saying it would make older devices like iPhone 6 work better. Last year, the company received severe backlash for slowing down some older iPhones with flagging batteries. After that Apple is trying to speed up older devices.
According to software Chief Craig Federighi, iOS 12 could bring out simple tasks, such as opening apps, up to twice as fast as its predecessor, iOS 11. The company said the operating system would work on the same devices as iOS 11.
Apple also showed new features including parental control on children, as well as the apps using currently. By doing this they want to limit the time which children waste on different applications. A new feature called Downtime is also introduced to help parents set up a schedule which can control the notifications not to appear at a certain time and can block usage of some applications.
The features work across all of a child’s iOS devices, So restrictions can be set for both iPad and iPhone if they have access to it. Also, they are giving competition by giving the opportunity to group video chat with more than 32 users at a time. New animated Animoji is also added which are available to the roster on iPhone X.
The company also figured out to handle the excess notifications as they have provided an option of “group together the notification” which you can sort according to the apps rather than handling so many updates for the same application.
A report from Guardian also described that any Apple smartphone having iOS 11 from theiPhone5S or newer or any iPad from the iPad mini 2 and iPad Air have the option to use iOS 12 easily. The company has claimed that it has improved performance all over iOS and everything works a little quicker even on older devices.
