iOS 12 Features and Tips

Cool iOS 12 Features

iOS 12 didn’t only focus on improving performance and getting rid of bugs. It also has an array of awesome new features to improve your iOS 11 device. These features are aimed at improving interaction with your device and understand your usage. At 911 iPhone repair we hope that posts like these help expand what our customers can do with their devices. Let’s take a look at some of the coolest iOS 12 features.

Manage Automatic Downloads

This feature allows your iPhone to automatically download the latest iOS software when new versions become available. In your general settings menu, you can switch on automatic updates to make use of this new feature. At the moment, it is unclear if these updates will require any action from you. You will still be able to manually check for and schedule updates to install overnight. This new feature is also available to other Apple devices.

Set up Screen Time

This new feature allows you to set time limits for each app. Apple took a leaf out of Google’s book to allow their users to maintain a healthier balance between their device and other aspects of their life. The Screen Time feature helps you to keep track of and limit the amount of time that you spend on individual apps. If you, for example, spend the bulk of your day on social media, like our iphone repair Google plus, this app feature will help you adjust your usage habits.  


Memoji is Apple’s answer to personalized avatars. With this feature, you can create characters that look like you with the same skin color and facial features. You can also equip your memoji with its own accessories. Although Samsung’s S9 didn’t pull a similar feature off with complete success, Apple has spent a lot of resources to get it as close to perfection as possible. Memoji is widely regarded as a fusion between Bitmoji and Nintendo’s Mii characters.

Better Navigation App Control

Navigating between apps is one of the biggest considerations when it comes to functionality and ease of use. Apple’s new Shortcut App allows users to complete an entire array of actions with one single Siri request. Like the screen time feature, this is something that Google is doing already. Now iOS 12 users can get the same functionality that this combination of shortcuts and digital assistance has to offer. Third-party apps are also tapping into Siri’s ability to complete quick actions with great success.

Manage Notifications

Apple has been leading the way in terms of notifications for some time now. With iOS 12’s new release, they are eliminating some of the most common frustrations that users have with notifications. These features include grouped notifications and prioritization, locked screen management, and quiet delivery. Siri Suggestions is another useful notification feature that helps you manage your notifications. These suggestions are based on your unique interaction with notifications and device usage.


If your device came with iOS 11, you can download and install iOS 12. You don’t have to buy a new device to make use of the latest features that Apple has to offer.
