Here's a Geekbench performance test between iOS 12 Beta and iOS 11.4 public release for iPhone X. See which one fares better.

The addition of these features was previously leaked by Bloomberg, but the details on how they worked wasn't yet known.

Apple's software upgrades also include features that help users understand how much time they are spending on their devices, amid concerns of growing smartphone "addiction". Users who do not have an iOS 11 backup will not be able to restore since you can not restore an iOS 12 backup to a device running iOS 11.

The new Business Manager platform, which debuted in beta earlier this year with a select group of partners, is basically an enterprise version of Apple School Manager, that gives companies a web-based portal for IT managers to deploy and manage Apple devices in the workplace. Swiping down from the top right of the screen will open control center.

A startup alleges that Apple infringed on its intellectual property in a new app the tech giant introduced this week called Shortcuts, according to a report.

The photos app will become more dynamic, offering search suggestions such as "hiking" and categorising events by place and time, with a separate "For You" tab offering suggestions for edits or people you may want to share images.

The app allows the users to set a limit of each app individually, and a notification will be displayed when the limit is about to end.

Along with ways to limit distracting notifications from iPhones, a new Screen Time feature allows people to more tightly control and monitor time spent in applications. Even if the new autofill option in Safari is a pain to use in practice, the browser will still help your privacy, as it will, for example, warn you when you use one and the same password for multiple services, and offer to augment it.

Screen time lets users know exactly how much time they spend on their device, and in which apps.

Apple's Voice Assistant was losing the war against Google's Assistant, and now with the support of this new feature, Apple hopes to wow the iPhone users. It's as good as you're going to get until the official release comes out.

The key point here is that this new feature is available at no extra cost, and works via Wi-Fi calling. That way, parents can make sure critical apps will still work even during downtime, like the Phone app or Books.
