iOS 12 is compatible on iPhone 5s and above as well as iPad Air and newer. I've been testing iOS 12 on multiple devices and it has not only been one of the fastest and most stable betas I can remember; it is probably the most stable version of iOS in years. On an iPhone 6 Plus that's running on normal peak performance, you can expect up to 70% faster camera launches and up to 50% faster keyboard display when you tap on a text input field. We've heard from readers with older devices that its performance improvements have given a new lease on life to the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and the like, and one TidBITS Talk reader said it solved his iOS 11 battery problems.

If the device is completely out of juice or you've manually turned it off, you won't be able to perform any NFC actions.

Apple News is redesigned to make it easier to discover new channels and topics or jump straight to favorites, with a new sidebar on iPad and the Channels tab on iPhone. As the name implies, the AR-based Measure app lets you get precise measurement of any object.

Ken Graham, the NHC's director, warned the slow pace of the storm exacerbated its danger even to areas outside its immediate path. Spanish moss waved in the trees as the winds picked up in Wilmington , and floating docks bounced atop swells at Morehead City.

Notifications. This new system is all about avoiding interruptions and reducing clutter on your lock screen. That issue has been fixed in iOS 12.
Make sure you've backed up your iPhone or iPad before you download and install the update - otherwise you risk losing your data. Did you miss a phone call? You can also customize certain options right from the Notification Center, telling it to deliver those notifications "quietly" (so they still appear, but don't make sound) or turn them off entirely.
