Apple is gearing up to unveil iOS 12 today, and, instead of waiting with bated breath for your iPhone to ring up with a notification, you’d be wise to watch the WWDC 2018 keynote live, as the update won’t be rolling out before a public beta is announced at the end of the month, as usual.
While Apple isn’t expected to introduce some grand new overhaul (who knows, it may surprise us still), the most important changes will be taking place under the hood, with stability and performance improvements that are long overdue. Apple’s aggressive iPhone and iPad portfolio in the last couple of years meant that iOS was increasingly hard to manage on so many new devices. Also, the new features roster that had to be included to keep up with the Kardashians was starting to get daunting, so iOS 11 was a somewhat buggy release, which should be now remedied with iOS 12.
On the other hand, the next version of iOS may have to be crafted entirely with the notch in mind, as all new iPhones this year, but an eventual SE 2, are expected to sport the top bezel protrusion. If you want to watch in real time what Apple may have concocted to circumvent the notch to surrender, and iron out all kinks of the previous releases, the live stream will be up and running at the link below, followed by the supported devices and browsers:
