Once the error appears, simply tap on "Close" and then head over to the stock Settings app, tap on General and then Software Update. You can also see a saved search, create a new camera or audio note, copy a note link to the clipboard and print a note, all through Shortcuts. As for compatability, iOS 12 is available on the iPhone 5s and newer iPhones, and the majority of the iPad devices. Most are self-explanatory, but the Interact shortcut is a fun addition from developer Brian Mueller - its simple objective is to provide an avenue for Siri and CARROT to interact with each other, with you playing the amused spectator.

At 37:23, an Apple employee shows how Shortcuts can be used to do multiple tasks at onceApple/YoutubeHow do I get Siri Shortcuts on iOS 12? Sending pictures and videos on iMessage also seems a little faster with iOS 12, by the way.

You can also check if your iPhone or iPad is ready for the update by tapping Settings General Software Update.

You can back up your iOS device using iTunes or iCloud.

This will start the process of downloading iOS 12. "iOS 12 represents that Apple's thinking more about how we use our phones instead of just adding more ways to use them". While the focus is not on massive new features, but small updates such as improving performance on older devices, everyone should download this update because it adds certain security improvements and lots of nifty features.

IOS 12 Officially Released: New Features, Compatible Devices and More

So this definitely has the potential to be a very important update for devices not launched in the past couple of years or so. If you have an older device, you won't be able to apply the update. So you should do it when you have enough time.

As promised at its special event last week, Apple today released iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.

As for the time, Apple releases major software updates at around 10 AM PT (1 PM ET, 5 PM GMT, 6 BST).

Regardless of whether you choose iTunes or iCloud to backup your device, each app will show you the time and date of your last backup so you'll know you've done it correctly.

If you're running iOS 11, then you can get iOS 12. Like in iOS 12, notifications from the same app are automatically grouped together.

One of the coolest features out today is the ability for HomePod to now ping your iOS or macOS devices, which is one of the best features from Apple Watch. While some of these features have been available through third-party apps like IFTTT and Google Assistant, Apple has now integrated them directly into the iOS.
