MacStories have done it again with an amazing roundup of iOS 12. I’ll be passing this onto anyone wanting to know what’s new in iOS when it launches today.
There’ll be lots of app updates today as part of the big iOS 12 launch. Up next for me is an app that I am starting to play with, GoodTask. Anything that uses iCloud for calendar and reminders is on top of my list at the moment. I’ll update on how I get on but for now here’s what’s changed in version 4.1.
One of the apps that I’ve started to get into is Streaks. Along with iOS 12 today we get a version 4, which most importantly adds an iPad app and iCloud sync. Looking forward to getting it all setup today and testing.
I know I’m running a risk with a beta but the OTA (Over The Air) update for iOS 12 Beta 6 has been terrible for me. My AirPods no longer work with my iPhone, the phone just hangs multiple times a day and battery is getting me through half the day.
I’m going to do a restore with the downloadable file from the developer portal to see if it resolves.
Anyone else getting issues on the latest beta?
Over the air update has just kicked in on my iPad. If you’ve signed up for the beta get yourself updated.
As part of trying to be more mindful of my smartphone usage I’ve installed iOS 12 public beta specifically to try out app limits. The “Time Well Spent” movement I’ve been following isn’t about demonising technology but letting it help us get some control back. It’s obvious makers of social networks don’t respect us so thankfully Apple do. I’ve set myself a 30 minute time window for social networking rather than removing my apps completely. You can find all of this under Settings, Screen Time and then App Limits.
