The first iOS 12 public beta is finally here

The first iOS 12 public beta is finally here

Developers who regularly build software for Apple's iPhone and iPad hardware now have access to the second pre-release seed of iOS 12, iOS 12 beta 2.

It was originally released as a developer test version, but is now available for the general public to try before its full release in September.

If you want to try the next major version of tvOS on your Apple TV, you can now download the pubic beta.

Once installed, iOS 12 will automatically update as new beta versions are released, but it is important to make sure you install the updates as they arrive, as bugs are fixed on a regular basis and older versions will no longer be supported. But Apple is going to release betas every few weeks over the summer. Battery and performance might not be up to scratch either.

After enrolling and signing up, iOS 12 beta will be sent to your registered Apple device.

They posed for photos with their new baby girl Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford on June 24, 2018 in Auckland, New Zealand . Gayford said he would never forget the look on Ardern's face when she held their baby.

A suite of features for controlling the amount of time you use your phone called Screen Time. Just go to Apple's website to become a member and start downloading the new software.

Do note you may not want to install betas on your day-to-day devices, as there are still some bugs related to beta software. There are also updates to the Stocks app, Siri, Augmented Reality (AR), and iMessage. If that's the case, then you should know you can still get back to iOS 11.4 without losing any data.

Again though, it's a beta, and you should proceed with caution.

On an iPhone X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. If you have an iPhone 6 or an iPad Air for instance, you should see a big improvement when it comes to launching apps, triggering the camera and entering text. Downtime, another setting, allows you to set blocks of time where you can only use authorized apps, to keep your distractions down.

Apple's iOS 12 update is ready for testing. You can also set your own shortcuts through Apple's new "Workflow" app, so that Siri can take care of several tasks for you with a single command.
