There are a few new features that have finally made this app a viable alternative to the, er, alternatives. Here’s what’s new.
iOS 12 is out, and a lot of people are suddenly realising that they spend way too much time on their smartphones. Way. Too. Much. Time.
That’s all thanks to the Screen Time feature you’ll find within your device’s Settings menu — right under “Do Not Disturb”. Tap it, and your iPhone or iPad will give you all sorts of scary information: How many hours you’ve spent glued to it, what you did, and even how much you picked it up (to the hour, even).
There are a lot of fun new tricks in iOS 12. And if you’re big on security — who isn’t! — you’re going to love all the little password-themed features that Apple has dropped into its latest mobile operating system.
The “Golden Master” of iOS 12 — which should be the final version released to the public on Monday, September 17 — is now available.
