When Apple announced iOS 12 during WWDC 2018, the beta was made available to developers more or less immediately. However as you might have heard or known by now, Apple has changed the way they’re approaching betas and in recent years have made betas open to the public as well.
iOS 12 is no exception and for those who are interested, Apple has released the public beta for its upcoming iOS update. The beta will be available to those who have signed up to be part of Apple’s beta software program, and if you haven’t, not to worry as you will be able to sign up for it on Apple’s website.
It should be noted that because iOS 12 is still in the somewhat early stages of beta that there could be some features that don’t work as intended, and that there could some features that might not necessarily make the final cut and could be delayed. So basically what you see now could change upon its final release.
As per the rumors, iOS 12 seems to focus on overall improvements to the iOS platform, as opposed to bringing in flashy new features. There will be changes such as grouped notifications, the ability to see how long we’re spending on our apps or phone, and more. The update is expected to be released this fall alongside Apple’s new iPhones.
