However, once it's set to go, you should see the changes with iOS 12 right away.

Here's how you can fix iOS 12 OTA Update Requested stuck issue on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. This is because its banner feature is performance, particularly when under heavy load.

Also, keep in mind that the iOS 12 update only works with Apple devices from iPhone 5S on up.

Screen Time is another big one. It brings support for Dolby Atmos audio for movies, and new, more interactive aerial screensavers.

New features are great and all, but personally I'm more psyched about the performance enhancements Apple has thrown in this time around. Like animoji, these are only available on iPhone X devices with facial recognition cameras. Some of your existing apps might not work with the OS and you could lose data, but if you're willing to try it out there's no fee to join.

Siri even suggests which notifications you should turn off, depending on the apps you don't use often. After recording, you'll get the option to change the phrase, or re-record it if Siri didn't hear you. If you're itching to get your hands on the earliest versions of Apple's mobile software, like upcoming betas, you'll need to join the Apple Developer Program. In addition to logging how much time you spent on your iPhone, it will reveal which apps consumed the bulk of that time and which sent the most notifications. When enabled, any notifications will not show up on your lock screen. You can do that today with the release of iOS 12.

When the app is ready, point your iPhone at the thing you want to measure, and you'll see a dot in a circle. "And keeping using them is the best thing for the planet". 3D obect detection is going to make AR experiences really insane on iOS 12, as developers will be able to leverage objects in the real world and turn them into cool AR experiences. You'll also find a new "For You" tab, which-similar to Facebook or Google Photos-will feature photos from this day in the past, or effects it thinks you might want to add to recent images.

Photos now has a smarter search, with contextual sharing suggestions and easier photo sharing.
