Apple’s iOS12 available for download
The latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS12, is now available for download.
New features include group notifications, more Do Not Disturb options, a new Shortcuts app where you automate series of actions suggested by Siri, and “Screen Time” reports. As always, it is advisable to download the new operating system to take advantage of the latest security features.
Initial impressions are that it does make your devices work faster and more responsive.
New Apple iPhones and Apple Watch Series 4
On a related note, as has been widely publicised, Apple announced three new iPhones last week and a new Apple Watch Series 4.
The specification of the new devices has been well documented. The new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are now available for pre-order from £999 and £1,099 respectively, more if you effectively take financing with a pay monthly contract. It has to be said that however technically impressive these products are, an equivalent amount of expenditure on professional photography equipment or a dedicated laptop would yield much more.
