I’ve been using iOS, The operating system that powers iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch since 2009.
I still remember my excitement when I got my first 3rd generation iPod Touch with VoiceOver.
Back then the 3GS was hot, And the notion of a screen reader on a flat touch-screen device was new.
Let us fast forward to 2018 and both what we expect from our mobile devices and indeed the power said devices bring to the table has become almost magical.
From Siri shortcuts to a much-improved notifications system there’s a lot to love about iOS 12.
I won’t delve much into everything that is new but will say that the experience and speed is noticeable, specially if one is coming from an older iOS device.
Apple claim that the camera app now opens 70% faster, the overall performance is much improved.
Another area I really love is the way now iOS handles notifications. Say you get 20 notifications on Facebook. You can just tap to dismiss them all, or with Vo running double tap on clear all.
With apple’s focus on stability and speed, this update is very much recommended for anyone who can run it.
Big changes like a new home screen are coming in iOS 13.
For now, iOS 12 is the best.
