What will iOS 12 be like? Release date, rumors

What will iOS 12 be like? Release date, rumors

After the last update of iOS 11, there were not very pleasant impressions. That's because Apple has added very few new chips to its mobile OS. The coolest changes came on the iPad, but the owners of the iPhone is not very pleased.

IOS 12 Review

iOS 12 should rehabilitate the situation and bring to everyone without exception many new features. And of course the updated interface design. Also, no one has waited for the night mode, so all apple users will wait for him in the "twelfth". Let's have a brief overview of iOS 12, what's new for us in the updated operating system?

Design by iOS 12

A major redesign in iOS 12 should not be expected, because Apple considers its "flat" style relevant and modern. Most likely, some elements of the interface in iOS 12, such as the Control Center, the Notification Center, the type of notifications and for anything else, will undergo a change.

Control Center

The control center changes in design quite often. The first was an experimental solution. The second (iOS 10) became more beautiful and bought new buttons. The third (iOS 11) cardinally changed, got a new look and a bunch of new controls and, most importantly, it became possible to customize your settings.

Control Center iOS 12
What will iOS 12 do with the Control Center? Honestly, the design of this center in iOS 11 is not the best, as for me the previous one was more beautiful and more comfortable. Apple has to do something about it. Design should be slightly tweaked. Do it guys from Cupertino are not known, but one thing is clear - in the Control Center there will be more different settings that you can add to it. For example, I would like to see the same GPS tumbler there.

Notification Center

Here we are waiting for grouped notifications. If, for example, several notifications come from the same application, then they must be combined. The screenshot shows how it should look. This way you can sort out all the notifications a little and make the overall view of the notification center easier.

This can look like new widgets and a new style of notifications in iOS 12

Dark theme of the design

Almost half of the Internet was expecting a black theme for registration in iOS 11, but Apple did not show it to us. iOS 11, still white as snow. But, perhaps, already, in iOS 12 there will be a dark theme of registration. At least, I would like to. The screenshots show the concept of iOS 12 in a dark version.

Wiser Siri

From year to year, Siri clears his eyes. However, this happens in very small steps. And in the era of fast-paced technology, Apple, it's time to significantly update your voice assistant with elements of artificial intelligence. Every year, with the release of a new version of iOS, Siri does not develop much. In iOS 12 we are waiting for Siri to step forward.

Speed ​​and power consumption iOS 12

Every year, Apple is improving and optimizing iOS, so that the speed of each new version is growing, and power consumption is falling. What always extols iOS over other mobile operating systems. Of course, when it comes to speed, it's about the more recent iPhone and iPad models. If you roll iOS 12 on an old iPhone 5S, then most likely that it will not work better than in its time on iOS 7.

Which devices will support iOS 12

What devices will go to iOS 12? Will iOS 12 support older devices, such as iPhone 5S, iPad mini 2, iPad 4 and other earlier iGadgets. Introducing the list of devices for which the new iOS 12 will go:


  • iPhone 7S
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6S, 6S Plus
  • iPhone 6, 6 Plus
  • iPhone 5S


  • iPad Pro 12.9 "
  • iPad Pro 10.5 "
  • iPad Pro 9.7 "
  • iPad 2017
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2


  • iPod Touch 6 gen

Will iOS 12 go on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C

Definitely iOS 12 will not go on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. At least from those considerations with which the past iOS 11, already, did not support them. iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C, have already been "taken out of the game" and more will not come on them updates. Why is that? Because Apple displays gradually old gadgets that are not equipped with 64-bit processors (processors of the new generation). It turns out that the oldest iPhone, which will support the "twelfth" will be the iPhone 5S.

Will iOS 12 on iPhone 5S and on iPhone 6

100% will go to iOS 12 on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE. Because, it's all fresh with modern stuffing iPhones and they still have to be in the game for a long time. Moreover, 64-bit processors are installed in them. Accordingly, the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7S will also be quietly updated for the "twelfth".

Will iOS 12 on iPad mini and on iPad 4

iPad mini of the first generation did not already support the "top ten" and "eleven", so I hope that it will not support iOS 12. But iPad mini 2 Retina display will support iOS 12. And all models that are younger will also support the update. iPad 4, too, will stop supporting fresh updates, because it has the old "hardware", by the way, almost the same as the iPhone 5, so iPad 4 will not support iOS 12! Air'y and Pro'shki will naturally support IOS 12, because, this is the most advanced and modern tablets to date.

Will iOS 12 on iPod Touch 6 gen

iPod Touch 6 gen will support iOS 12, as it is considered a fresh device with modern iron from the category iPod. This is the only Apple player in the lineup and it will still take updates until Apple itself slicks it off the shelves.+

When will iOS 12

The release date for iOS 12 is the first week of June 2018. Apple will present iOS 12 at the WWDC developer conference in early June 2018. As always, at the same time, Apple will present its operating systems in the summer in early June. And in 2018 there will be no exception. However, the release of the full version of iOS 12 will take place in September 2018.

Released iOS 12

In June, Apple shows a new OS, then a whole summer finalizes releasing beta versions and in September, iOS 12 will be available for upgrade on all supported devices.

Download iOS 12 beta

After the presentation of iOS 12 in June, Apple will have a whole summer to release a beta version of the operating system, both for developers and for public testing. Usually, beta versions are released immediately after the presentation. Therefore, when iOS 12 is presented, then immediately, you can download iOS 12 beta 1 to your iPhone or iPad. When beta 1 appears, I will give here a link to it to download. Install iOS 12 beta 1 is very simple, just a couple of tapes. Also, you can see the review of iOS 12 beta 1 here on the site so that you can evaluate whether you need to take risks and put a raw version of the operating system. Because usually, all the first beta versions of the new released iOS are always distinguished by serious bugs, such as crashes from applications, fast battery discharge, inhibited device operation, etc.

IOS 12 Wallpapers

Download wallpaper iOS 12 will be available after the presentation, when it will be known what exactly the wallpaper will be. Right here, iPodium will lay out real wallpaper iOS 12 for free download, for all iPhone models. It remains only to wait for the presentation of iOS 12.
But judging by everything, maybe, it will be depicted, something connected with water or with the sky, because almost every version of iOS on the wallpaper had water, from which it follows that Apple loves the waves and the sea. And on the other hand, the fourth consecutive year of the wave, it's not in the style of Apple. Most likely, they can move to the sky. Earlier in iOS 7 and iOS 8 there was a starry sky, there is a possibility that Apple will want to experiment with the clouds.
For now. All that can be predicted for sure, what to expect from iOS 12 in 2018. As leaks and new information, we will adjust the article and add new ones to a special section of iOS 12. Do not forget to follow the news to be aware of. Write in your comments your thoughts and huge thanks to those who share an article in their social network :)

GTA City Vice Modern is a graphics mod putting the famous opus Grand Theft Auto series to the tastes of the day. It offers, in fact, new textures, herbs in high definition, and more detailed buildings, among others.


The game is obviously old since it was released in 2002, and do not expect miracles. There are clearly optimizations of textures, but it is difficult to see "grass HD". Anyway, the mod still makes it easier to play on recent screens. Those who have an old copy of the title on hand and want to rediscover it should be delighted.


  1. Many New Textures.
  2. New Pavements Textures.
  3. HD Grass.
  4. New Mansion Textures.
  5. New Sunshine Autos Textures.

AMD will prepare security updates for processors

AMD ensures that the owners of their systems do not have tofeel threatened, and the update being released should also ensure security of the systems.

While Intel continues to fight against the threats named Specter and Meltdown , AMD ensures that the owners of their systems do not have tofeel threatened, and the update being released should also ensure security of the systems. 

Last week Microsoft released an update for Windows, which was supposed to protect computers . As it turned out, these patches seemed to be problematicfor some systems from AMD , so the manufacturer decided to take matters into their own hands. 

As the manufacturer informed, own corrections were developedthat concern Specter. AMD also announced that the threat caused by Meltdown does not affect their CPUs, and the reason is the difference in architecture between their CPU and Intel. 

At the same time, AMD said Microsoft was already making the patch available for the Ryzen and EPYC processors , and an upgrade covering older systems such as Opteron , Athlon and Turion X2 Ultra will be available next week. This information relates to the firstvariant of Specter, when it comes to the second, microcode updates for the Ryzen and EPYC layouts will be communicated to the partners later this week . For other CPUs, they will appear in the coming weeks.
