Top 10 iOS 12 New Features

There are lots of iOS 12 new features – some of them are common, like fixed bugs or brightness and many more but most of them are super cool to discuss. Of course, there are some common changes like the look of outfit screen although it looks the same as iOS 11. This time Apple didn’t focus on the look like the last time – they mainly focused on performance. The important features that I liked a lot from iOS 12 are the outfit and performance that they had brought to iPads. If you have an iPad, I would highly recommend you to upgrade it to iOS 12 because there are so many good features. According to my research, I have created a list of top 10 iOS 12 new features.

#1. Screen Time

In my opinion, the best iOS 12 new feature is screen time because it exactly says that how much time you have spent on your phone and how much time you are spending on an app, The best part screen time is that you can actually control the usage of your phone by setting timer for the apps that you spend the most of your time. You can set up how much time you want to spend on an app like you can set 1 hour for YouTube, 30 minutes for Facebook and any other apps on your phone. Basically, it is for those who are really addicted to their phone that they even don’t let go of while they are in bed at midnight.

#2. Group Facetime

Group facetime is the feature that we all have been waiting for to see on iOS devices. Face-time is an app that allows you to call other people just by using the internet. Back in iOS 11, you were able to call only one person at a time but now on iOS 12, you can call up to 32 people at a time plus you can also add Animoji for each person.

#3. Arkit Measure app

Measure app was first introduced in wwdc18 and it was dope because you would be able to measure lots of thing without any kind of measuring tool. It makes our work way faster.

Measure app is super easy to use. Open the app, you will see a button with a plus icon, tap on it. Drag from where you want to start measuring and stop where ever you want with just a tap. You will see a vertical line on your screen, tap on it and it will show you the measurement.

It can also automatically measure some things like photos albums, laptop and many more. You just need to tap and then it will show you the measurement of the shape from all the angles.

#4. Arkit 2

Apple had introduced Arkit app in WWDC17. Arkit is augmented reality and it is to create the illusion that 3D objects are placed in the physical world of ours. It collects information from the environment with the front camera and then creates a virtual 3d object to play with.

last year Apple launched Arkit and this year they launched Arkit 2. The difference is that this time you can play multiplayer with your friend. There are some new feature updates like:
