iOS 12 review: an update that will make your iPhone faster


– iOS 12 is out today,
and if you’ve bought an iPhone or iPad sometime
in the last few years, you’ve probably got a popup on you phone asking you to go and install it now. But like every year, there’s
always the same question. Should I install the update or is it gonna slow down my phone? But iOS 12’s a very
different update for Apple, and instead of focusing
on bright flashy features like a wholly new interface
or redesigned apps or improved widgets, Apple’s instead put an emphasis
on making iOS work better instead of just look better. (upbeat music) For the first time I can
remember with an iOS update my iPhone and iPad feel faster
and more stable, not less. I’ve been using this public
beta for a few months on my iPhone and a few days
with Apple’s finalized software, and my year old iPhone X just flies now. Apps are quicker to load,
camera launches faster, and just most importantly
that creeping sense of lag that tends to pop up when you
install the new iOS update just isn’t there. Changes are even more significant
on my much older iPad Air which was barely functional in iOS 11. IOS 12 represents that
Apple’s thinking more about how we use our
phones instead of just adding more ways to use them. Or to put it another way, instead of serving up more
bright, fun, candy-like updates, this year Apple’s serving up a big heaping pile of vegetables. Nowhere is that clearer
than in Screen Time, probably the biggest addition to iOS 12. It’s a new feature that
lets you see how much you’re using your phone and
how much time you’re spending in each app. It’ll also show you other details like how many notifications you’ve gotten, how many times you’ve picked
up your phone in a day, and other more granular bits
with how you use your phone. The thing is, Screen Time
is a largely passive tool. Sure, Apple will be able
to tell you how much time you’re spending on Facebook or Twitter, but it’s up to you to make
the decision to decide if you’re going to spend less time, or if you’re going to
use the offered tools that will let you impose time limits on how much time you spend in those apps. In a similar vein, Apple’s
trying to be better about notifications in the new update. Notifications finally
group themselves by app, and there’s also the
option to manually adjust each notification’s
setting as it comes in, making it easy to shut off
annoying apps without having to dig through Apple’s
labyrinthy mess of menus. IOS 12 isn’t only about
performance improvements and managing your digital life better and more responsibly. There’s also some fun stuff here too, like Apple’s new MeMoji,
which are custom Animoji, Apple’s animated avatars
that had introduced with the iPhone X. Like the Animoji, the
Memoji will scan your face and, you know, move
around like your face does for sending messages. You’ll eventually be able
to use them in FaceTime too. They’re fun to play with,
even if they’re only going to be available in the iPhone X and the newly announced XS and XR. There’s also new effects
for sending images with iMessage. It let’s you add things
like text, filters, music, stickers, and more. The iPad has also gotten a
new gesture navigation system that looks suspiciously like
the one Apple introduced on the iPhone X. That seems to indicate that
Apple’s working on some kind of bezeless iPad for the future, but we’ll have to wait and see. Other parts of iOS aren’t
really going to make their impact known until
developers have had some time to play around with it. One of the things Apple’s
pushing for really hard in the new update, is its new
augmented reality AR Kit 2. There’s a lot of cool stuff
it adds like multiple users working in augmented
reality at the same time. But until we kind of
experiences developers are gonna build with these tools, it’s hard to say how it’ll actually work. There’s also the new series shortcuts which will let users and
developers add their own custom interactions and
macro sequences to Siri. It seems like a really powerful tool. You’ll be able to set up
your own custom Siri phrases and group actions together like automating your whole morning routine
with a single phrase, but a lot of it’s gonna
depend on how developers use these tools to
integrate their own apps and we’ll have to really
wait and see how useful it is in every day life before we
make any final judgements. If iOS 12 was just a faster,
more stable version of iOS 11, it probably would’ve
been enough on its own. The whole thing speaks to
a much more mature attitude of Apple overall, making
sure that the foundation is strong first before
building up new features on top of it. Take, for example, what should have been one of the big standout features from this year’s update, group FaceTime, which would have let you video chat with up to 32 people. Would that have been really
great to have at launch? Yes, but the feature wasn’t ready, and Apple recognized that and delayed it ’til later this fall, which
is encouraging to see. Or, to go back to our original analogy, iOS 12 may not be the most
exciting software update on the surface. It’s a plate of broccoli,
not some fresh, delicious pie or a stack of Oreos, but
at the end of the day, like a plate of broccoli,
it is good for you. Thanks so much for watching. For more coverage like

  1. What’s your favorite feature in iOS 12?

  2. All these reviews from these youtubers saying that the new IOS makes your device significantly faster n smoother should b taken with a pinch of salt. I haven't noticed any massive difference in terms of performance on my iPhone X or iPad pro.

  3. So your IPhone X had lag??!!.. damn

  26. U are having a small bump on your left figure, which is annoying to see πŸ™‚

  27. bring the other guys back & stop trying

  28. This makes my ipad pro faster

  29. πŸ€”iOS 12 is like a plate of broccoli…
    so that means no one really wants it, but have to take it anyway, it's one of the most hated of it's kind, and tastes bad?

  30. How about reviewing the latest iOS on an old iPhone? This video will probably make more sense…

  31. More videos from Chiam Gartenberg ✊

  32. Can anyone help me , I was using 7plus since 21 months and after updating to ios 12 my FaceTime and I messages stopped working and it was showing waiting for activation since 5 hours

  33. iPhone 6 ?

  34. YEAH BETTER PERFORMANCE = DRAIN BATTERY FASTER … get that in your head

  35. Does anyone know where I can get that black desk pad at 0:20 ?

  36. Finally a proper update πŸ‘Œ

  37. It’s weird my iPhone X is slower and notifications are not working properly

  38. CyberSecurity Terminate Device where U can control and terminate iDevice remotely

  39. " And, my year old iPhone X just flies now! ". 😡😡

  40. Whats the name of that mat thing with measuring lines?

  41. Perfect example of some "journalists" are tech brain-dead sellouts.

  42. This is pretty piss-poor review. It's mostly just you listing off the already listed new features. It's faster? How much faster, show us an example, try it on older phones, show that. It's got new siri shortcuts, great. Did you even try that, show us an example, what did you like or not like about how it's implemented. Glad it really improved your ipad, not so glad you spent only 7 seconds of your review talking about ipad if it's such a big improvement. I could go on cause this what pretty bad, it as if you've never really used the new ios or only for like 5 minutes.

  43. My SE wasn't slow but now it's like a new phone, simply amazing.

  44. This review was booty lmfao

  45. shill

  46. So basically Android P

  47. I was with you until broccoli…

  48. HURRAY!!!!! FINALLY!!! An update from one of these companies that focuses on what’s most important… system stability and speed and bug smashing!! All these devices have too many features already, it’s so great that they decided to take a break and make improvements to the existing system. πŸ‘πŸ‘

  49. Bezeless ipads would be cool, but we cant deny that ipads are big , we need to use both our hands , practically it wont be possible to hold it and simultaneously use it unless we always rest it over a table top.

  50. TIL iOS12=broccoli.

  51. how do i install the radiator on the phone?

  52. but will it blend

  53. 2:20 like maze setting menu…..haha this is absl true maze

  54. I have iPhone 7plus. Is it really worth updating because i done want my phone to get slower. Usually when u update, it make thing appear nice but the battery live gets worse and phone becomes slower.

  55. IF this guy is planning on doing another review, I highly recommend that he down a red bull first.

  56. I hope next update. For iphone is " Always On Display " for much better and useful for other user iphone

  57. I dont think a plate of oreos or pies bring a whole lot of features. The last monumental update would be a plate of lollipop, Marshmallow too offered many new things. I am kinda feeling for a year verge has become too negative towards apple to satisfy the online community. While trying to retain a facade of a non biased review channel.

  58. β€œMy Year Old IPhone X” is possibly the douchiest moment of this video.

  59. My iPad Mini 2 is reborn…quick and stable like when I first purchase it from Apple.πŸ˜€. Amazing!

  60. instead of "iOS 12" I always understood "I was 12 when…" took me some time to figure out πŸ˜‰

  61. Should I go to ios12 on my iPhone 6?

  62. Improved and smoother animations, grouped notifications and increased battery life on my iPhone 6s Plus

  63. what should i get xs or R ?

  64. The new iPhone update makes you feel like the iPhone

  65. Siri shortcuts was a major disappointment and a huge Lie. Thought it would record all actions on any app and I can create a shortcut for it. Like ordering my favourite coffee. Even not it still requires apps to do something on their end. Pathetic. Never going to happen. Apart from a few FIXES. this isn’t a major update at all.

    And please stop with that how you use your phone. It’s just to mask screen time introduced six years later on iOS. Clever for apple and most people don’t see but I do apple. I do. Clearly your not as clever as you think ..

  66. Where's that wallpaper from on iPhone x

  67. I’m not gonna lie my iPad IS faster. I have the first iPad Air and I was worried about installing this. My iPad had been feeling Iike it was on its last leg with every update. It lagged and stuttered. This one changed it. There’s a noticeable speed increase and animations are smooth and quick like a few years back

  68. It’d be really cool if they added Live Wallpapers to iPads. ;^;

  69. "A fresh delicious pie or a stack of oreos"
    I see what you did there

  70. Who else have a iPhone 6s with iOS 10 πŸ˜›?

  71. I love that you listen to Purity Ring, I caught that

  72. No evidence ! just an advertisment ! I have checked iphone 6 and iphone 6s and they launch app completely identically !

  73. Nice vedio

  74. how much were you paid ?

  75. I hope IOS 12 isn't a trojan horse.

  76. And Xiaomi is getting MIUI 10 these days

  77. Broccoli rules.

  78. I want ask,can i update ios from 10 directly to ios 12? I have not updated to ios 11 before. So i am impressed as if it is sticking,is that okey? Please help answer,someoneπŸ™

  79. I hate the root cat insurance ad.

  80. Should I update my iPhone 6s?

  81. Down voted for broccoli

  82. anyone know to change screen rotation with this?

  83. What a boring reviewer this man is

  84. Is it faster on ipads as well????? I'm still on my ios 10 on my iPad mini 4 πŸ˜‚

  85. My X though is now laggy

  86. I still don’t have ios 12. im still on ios 11.4????? Help???? Im using ipad mini 4

  87. Do I need tweezers in order to update?

  88. It slowed down my charging process on my phone. It takes FOREVER to charge ever since the iOS 12 update

  89. Checked out the iphone XS today and was very . . . underwhelmed. But i was not the target audience, considering that i have the iPhone X. No upgrade for me this year. . . however the watch was AMAZING.

  90. My 6s is actually slower on 12. Could be my battery health, but I’m kinda pissed

  91. It works! I was surprised, I have ip 6 and works incredible

  92. I would love to have a bezel less iPad….eww why apple is taking so much time to bring it up

  93. It switched my emoji & numbers on my iPad keyboard. I HATE IT! Is there any way to correct this???

  94. So it’s not bad enough that my girlfriend nags me about how much time I spend on my iPad, now I’ve gotta have iOS 12 telling me how much time I’m spending on it too?!?!?

  95. My iPad Air 2 has slowed down dramatically since updating to iOS 12. I’m also having trouble with a few apps (like Apple Books). Feel like deleting the update.

  96. πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•

  97. Can you get this on iPod πŸ˜”

  98. Gold

  99. Dislikes are from android like if you agree

  100. I fully agree with this πŸ™ŒπŸΏ, btw I’m watching this on m iPhone 6s so yes iOS 12 is absolutely amazing.
