At the Worldwide Developer Conference revealed the operating system iOS 12 Apple. While it may not be as exciting as some earlier updates of iOS, this year Apple focused on improving the overall stability of your operating system.
After months of beta releases, since last September 17, the new operating system is available to users with devices of the apple bite. To download the update, you need to make sure that all your data are backed up and that you are running the latest version of iOS. Just go to Settings> General> software Update page iOS 12 Apple and select the option to install iOS 12. If you don’t see an option to upgrade, make sure your device is compatible.
But not only that. More recently, Apple launched the update of its operating system, iOS 12.1.2 (build number 16C101), which provides corrections to errors that we saw in the past on the iPhone with iOS 12.
What new Animojis with iOS 12.2
The second beta for developers of iOS 12.2 has come with new Animojis. In particular, we have added four animals are: an owl, a boar, a shark and a giraffe.
However, it should be recalled that the function of Animoji can be found in the iPhone and iPad more new Apple, as the iPhone X, iPhone XS iPhone XS Maxy the iPhone XR.
What is included in iOS 12.1.2?
As iOS 12.1.2 is a minor update, it does not contain any of the main features. Apple said that the errors with the activation of apud esim for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS iPhone XS Max have been corrected with this release and also addresses a problem that could affect the cellular connectivity in Turkey for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS iPhone XS Max.
Let us remember that about a week ago, Qualcomm won a victory of a patent against Apple in China and won a court case banning the import of iphones older, from the iPhone 6S to the iPhone X, and maybe that’s the reason, Apple decided to release this update before the end of the year
Recently, Apple told Reuters that it would boost the software updates to the users as a way of “addressing any potential concerns about our compliance with the order.” The patents of Qualcomm are related to the change in the size of the photo, and the administration of the application. The technology covered in those patents.
Lawyers for Apple have argued that this ban should be lifted because they continue to sell iPhones does not constitute an “irreparable harm” to Qualcomm. In the request for reconsideration of the injunction, Apple also noted that a ban of sales of the iPhone would affect the suppliers and chinese consumers along with the tax revenue that pays.
But if you still don’t know what are the great updates and applications that brings iOS to 12, not to worry, then you explain.
Emojis new and original
Recently, Apple said that all those users that install the update to the new operating system in their Apple devices, iOS 12.1, you can enjoy an approximate 70 emojis new, to entertain and to make the conversations even more original and fun.
According to the company’s apple bite, these emojis will be available at the end of October. However, the beta version for testing will be able to see from the 9th of October.
In addition to the new animal tender (obviating the bloodsucker), very soon, all users of iOS 12.1 will have the option to send emojis to symbolize a bagel, a salt, a suitcase of luggage, a compass, hiking boots, a softball, a frisbee and even an envelope gift red (asian-inspired), to any friend or family that wish to.
It is worth noting that, in the past month of July, to the purpose of the World Day of the Emoji, Apple introduced new options for characters emoji bald men and redheads, as well as a lobster, a cupcake and superheroes, which also will be launched with iOS 12.1.
Group FaceTime lets you chat with up to 32 people simultaneously. Since that is now integrated in iMessage, you can easily set up a group FaceTime calls through the window of group chat in iMessage.

SHORTCUTS FOR SIRI
With Siri Shortcuts, Siri is capable of so much more through quick actions that can be assigned through the new application shortcuts. For example, if you use the application Tile, you can add a shortcut to Siri, such as “I Lost my keys”. That way, when you lose the keys, you can inform Siri, and this will sound automatically … So easy!
You’ll also see suggestions for apps to appear on the lock screen. If you are delayed, Siri will suggest you to send a text message to the organizer of the meeting or to remind you to call your grandmother on the day of your birthday. Even if you’re in the movie, Siri will suggest that you put your phone in “do Not disturb”.
Users will be able to use the shortcuts for Siri not only on their iPhones, but also in watches HomePods and Apple.
A feature that Apple didn’t mention at the WWDC were the critical alerts. You’ll be able to opt out of notifications that are important even with the option do Not disturb activated. Without a doubt this can be very useful when a provider of health services is to get in touch with you for important information.

Now you’ll be able to create a character with augmented reality that looks to you, with the option of choosing between different hairstyles, eye colors and special features, such as freckles.
Apple has also added some funny effects to the camera iMessage. Users can add things like forms, text, filters and stickers to your photos, which can then send in conversations. You can even insert Animojis and Memojis in photos. It is worth noting that an additional update that was not announced at WWDC is that users will now be able to record up to 30 seconds with your Animoji, instead of the 10 seconds as it was previously.
