  • Apple Watch Series 4 Vs Series 3, 44 / 42 mm Vs 40 / 38mm Size Comparison

An added feature called ScreenTime monitors how much time you are spending on your iPhone and a breakdown of the usage.

Apple's new iOS 12 update comes with a long list of changes including performance enhancements and features like Screen Time and Siri Shortcuts.

If you skipped any previous versions of iOS 11, you'll also get the security patches from those updates in your iOS 12 upgrade.

After months of frustrating and occasionally perilous beta testing, iOS 12 is finally available to the masses. If history is any indication, the software update for iPhones and iPads should be ready to download around 10 a.m. PT, or 1 p.m. ET. But it's always a good idea to back up your data, which can be done via your phone or PC. The phone will check for the update and notify you to download and install.

Your iPhone will automatically prompt you to measure some objects, too. Agree to Apple's terms and then.wait.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 are launching this week, but if you've chose to keep your current iPhone or Apple Watch rather than upgrade, Apple's got something new for you, too. Here are some of the coolest new features you'll see in today's free update. Then you'll get a cursor you can move anywhere by dragging your finger. Hit Continue and the apps will be restored when the installation is finished. There are workout-focused additions, like Activity Competitions that you can challenge your friends to and automatic workout detection, which will determine when you're exercising and alert you to start the Workout app.

Don't forget to back up your iPhone or iPad before you download iOS 12

If you need your phone during the day, there's also the option to Install Tonight, which will do exactly that-install iOS 12 while you sleep, provided your device is plugged in. But I'm happy to report that iOS 12 has no performance related issues whatsoever and devices as old as iPhone 5s feel way better than before.

You'll also want to be on the lookout for bugs and keep an eye on your device's performance in key areas like battery life, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

The program is designed for app developers-individuals and companies. Normally, downgrading from the beta involves doing a full reset of your device from iTunes, but right now, since iOS 12 beta and general users are on the same version of the software, downgrading just takes a few moments of your time.

A note of caution, though: since you'll have an early version of iOS, you'll face bugs that are more than the minor annoyances you're used to on stable versions of iOS. The Measure app will draw a line between the two points.

Before you update you should make sure your iPhone/iPad is fully charged or you are near a plug.
