It has undergone a total redesign and will make shopping for audiobooks and ebooks a walk in the park.

Apple has added scores of new features to its operating systems that developers can take advantage of to improve existing apps and create all-new ones that were impossible before the new APIs were introduced.

iBooks will be renamed and be called Apple Books; it will include a "Reading Now" tab that lets you jump back into the spot you left your last-read book.

According to The Verge, Apple released the golden master build of iOS 12 on the day of the Apple event.

Before downloading iOS 12 users are recommended to backup their phone while it is still using the iOS 11 as a precaution.

It is wonderful to see just how much Apple has been able to improve the performance of its older devices by simply rolling out a software update. With that release now out in the public, it's actually possible to see how it performs on an array of devices when compared against iOS 11.4.1, which is the current firmware for iPhone and iPad.

So, perhaps don't rush into the new iPhones right away.

Making things more interesting, there's also a speed test of iOS 12 GM vs iOS 9.3 and iOS 10.3.

All supported devices, starting from the iPhone 5S and newer as well as from iPad Air and newer will be getting the iOS 12 stable updates. If you want to use iOS 12 before the vast majority of people, all you need to do is join the beta.

Most interestingly, Mojave also debuts the first UIKit-made on macOS in the form of Apple's own Home, News and Stocks apps.

iOS 12 brings a ton of improvements to the iPhone, but the biggest changes will come in the form of speed and performance - even on older devices. There's also Screen Time that helps them understand better the time they and the kids spend on apps. It is advised they do so directly from the iPhone or iPad they will be updating to iOS 12.
