IOS 12 and macOS Mojave public beta now available

Apple just released the first iOS 12 beta to everyone

What to know about Apple’s iOS 12 beta

A word of warning: downloading the iOS 12 beta means taking a big risk that many things on your smartphone will stop working. Besides the usual updates across its operating systems, including iOS, MacOS, WatchOS and TVOS, Apple may use the event to unveil new ARKit capabilities, enhanced features for Watch app developers, a usage control tool and an improved version of Siri.

Be warned - this is still Beta software.

You've been patient enough not to jump on the first iOS 12 beta release for developers, knowing that a public beta will follow. You'll want to download the iOS 11.4 build that matches your iPhone or iPad model, the IPSW file - just go here and find the appropriate software.

With iOS 12, you can expect faster and responsive performance, better notification management, screen time tracking, support for up to 32 people on FaceTime and better privacy features on Safari.

Another change Apple is introducing with iOS 12 is focused on Siri, which has fallen behind other voice assistants such as Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. Remember that this is beta software, so although Apple will have tested it to a certain extent, you're nearly certain to encounter a minor problem here and there. Those shortcuts can be used in any app, finally allowing a whole range of apps to interact with Siri.
