The latest version of iOS will be available from September 17 for your iPhone ($ 999 on Apple) iPad ($ 345 on Amazon Marketplace) and iPod Touch ] ($ 240 on the Amazon Marketplace) .
iOS 12 does not have a super long list of new features, with Apple focusing on improving overall performance of iOS devices instead. However, there are some improvements on Siri, a new display time feature and more robust alert controls.
Updating your iOS device takes just a few minutes, but before you start mashing the update button, take the time to get your phone or tablet ready.
Get rid of unused apps
I think we can all relate to downloading an app or game just to check it out and never open it again. Before updating, review the apps on your device and remove any apps you no longer use. Each app only takes up storage and rotates your home screens.
Backup Image Library
If something goes wrong during the update process and you stop restoring your device, you will not lose any of your photos or videos in the process.
The best way to avoid this is to use a photo messenger service like Apple's iCloud Photo Library or Google Photos.
Apple's service is embedded in iOS, but depending on how much your library is, it can cost you money every month for storage. Google Photo is free, as long as you do not mind that it does not back up full version versions of your photos or videos.
Clear your storage
Open Settings app, then select General > iPhone Storage (This option reflects the type of device you are using). Leave the page for this setting blank and try to remove any excess storage used by an app.
For example, if you convinced yourself, you were finally starting to listen to Podcasts and downloaded a series of episodes, but eventually stopped listening – maybe you will remove them.
Back up your device
Finally, with storage deleted, apps deleted and precious memories stored safely by your device, it's time to back up your iOS device.
The easiest way to do this is to go to Settings and select your name at the top of the Settings app. Then, go to iCloud > iCloud Backup > Backup Now . Make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network and it is a good idea to have the device connected to a charger.
Alternatively, you can use iTunes to back up your iOS device with an encrypted backup. This process eliminates the need to enter account passwords if you need to restore or set up a new device down the road. Follow the instructions.
With all this you're ready for iOS 12. Follow.
