Screen Time: if you're anxious about how much time you spend on your phone but you can't put your phone down without looking at a graph on your phone of the amount of time that you spend on your phone, well, do we have news for you.

After you've followed the steps mentioned above, you should be ready to download and install iOS 12 as soon as it is available and discovering the new iOS 12 features.

Today, Apple released the Golden Master of the iOS 12 Shortcuts app. If you care, or have enough time, I'd also recommend backing up your device a second time, in case one of your backups gets corrupted. Once you've backed up your device, go ahead and start the download process for iOS 12.

iOS 12 update will require at least 2GB of free space, so if you're running low on free space on your iPhone or iPad, it might be a good idea to free up some space by deleting unwanted stuff from your device.

One of the best and most elegant camera apps available on iOS, Halide comes with features like focus peaking and a powerful manual focus, full manual controls including exposure, ISO, and white balance, live histogram for ideal exposure shots, quick-review of each of your shots, intelligent automatic and manual mode, and a handsome, easy-to-use, gesture-based interface.

But Should You Upgrade, Right Now, to iOS 12?

The company touts that there's an up to 70 percent faster swipe to Camera and up to 50 percent faster keyboard display on iOS 12, as well as up to 2x faster app launch under a heavy workload.

This isn't to say that Apple's quality is bad: when you figure that there are a billion active iOS devices in use, even a problem that affects only 0.1% of situations is still going to cause problems for a million people. You can also search for lyrics (in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada), set multiple timers, and ping your other iOS devices.

In 2017, Apple acquired Workflow, an app that lets your iPhone quickly carry out numerous tasks at once. Of course, the promised changes are minimal: Dolby Atmos support for the Apple TV 4K, the new Earth screensaver, tapping the touchpad to identify an Aerial screensaver location, password autofill, an automatically added Apple TV Remote button in an iOS 12 device's Control Center, and improvements for some TV providers (zero sign-on and cloud DVR support).

If iOS 12 is available on your device you should then see an option to upgrade. Simply head to Settings General Software update. Your experiences during the beta period should have given you a sense of whether you can install on Macs that you rely on to get your work done-you should know by now if your essential apps are compatible or not.

If you own an Apple Watch, you'll also be receiving watchOS 5 today.

I've used the Watch's Siri face non-stop since first installing a beta of watchOS 4 last summer. That means your text messages, photos, and other data could suddenly vanish. We hope those updates will squash early bugs and smooth out the authorization requests.

In terms of new features, there's a whole lot of new things.

NASA contracted the ULA rocket launch for $96.6 million in 2013. "So it's been a very, very prominent part of space history". But now, Global Positioning System satellites are larger and require larger launch vehicles than the Delta II.
