Shortcuts can be complex automations that you build yourself using the Shortcuts app, but they can also be simple one-hit features provided by an app. Just about everyone we had talked to over the previous year experienced iOS 11 problems. I'm running it on the oldest model that supports iOS 12 - an iPhone 5s from 2013 - and the speed and stability of iOS 12 has brought that old phone out of retirement, as a modern walkman for my child. "Camera launches up to 70 percent faster, the keyboard appears up to 50 percent faster and typing is more responsive". That's a ton of impressive gains, and even though I own the iPhone X, these performance upgrades are very noticeable on the iPhone X.

Apple is still going all-in on augmented reality, and iOS 12 pushes things forward with more precise face tracking, better 3D object recognition, and AR integrations in apps. We'll be publishing coverage of the new features in all these upgrades in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned. Which devices can be updated? As the name implies, the AR-based Measure app lets you get precise measurement of any object.

Improvements include updates to settings within Messages, Siri, and photos, and Apple seems to be living up to their promise of group FaceTime calls.

With all that said, once you do get into iOS 12 be sure to check out all of the great new features it has to offer, including Shortcuts, Screen Time and more. An added feature called ScreenTime monitors how much time you are spending on your iPhone and a breakdown of the usage. To add to that, the company is making it possible to schedule Do Not Disturb, with added controls to the feature.

But wait, there's more.

Trump slaps fresh tariffs on $200B of Chinese goods
Some companies are looking to move out of China to dodge the tariffs, said Ted Murphy, a partner at the Baker McKenzie law firm. Taken together, it means roughly half of the products that China sells to the USA each year will be hit by American tariffs.

Djokovic Beats del Potro for Third US Open Title, 14th Major
With the win, Djokovic has now tied Pete Sampras for third on the all-time Grand Slams list. I had my corner, as well. "But also I think we are proud to be close to these legends".

Ex-Trump campaign boss reaches plea deal
On Twitter on August 22, Trump wrote: "Unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to "break" - make up stories in order to get a 'deal". As much evidence as Mueller's team had against Manafort in the first trial, they have even more evidence in the second trial.

You can still swipe right or left on a lock screen notification to take further action, but now when you swipe left a new option to manage notifications from the respective app is present. Apart from the obvious features that are listed on Apple's website (which you can check out here) there are certain things that you will find in the iOS 12 changelog only.

Siri Shortcuts. Instead of giving Apple's digital assistant a series of commands, why not create one that covers them all?

Voice Memos on the iPad. But do install iOS 12 before too long, since otherwise you'll be at risk for newly discovered security vulnerabilities that Apple doesn't fix for older iOS versions. You'll also need sufficient charge to proceed and we recommend hooking up your iOS device to a power source while you perform the update. And if you are really interested in changelogs, I suggest checking out the full changelog for the release here.

As is the case with any modern smart device, the Apple Watch also gets better over time through regular, substantial software updates.
