Apple Releases First Public Beta of iOS 12
Apple today made iOS 12 available in beta to those willing to test the pre-release operating system. The platform has already been in testing with developers for several weeks. Consumers interested in testing the platform will need to sign up on Apple's web site and download and install the public beta profile to their devices. Once the profile is installed, the public beta should show up through the normal software update tool in the system settings. Apple says iOS 12 will run on iPhones back to the 2013-era iPhone 5s. iOS 12 includes a number of new features, such as improved notifications, memoji for the iPhone X, performance refinements, Screen Time for monitoring usage, and better security. The final version of iOS 12 won't arrive until the fall.
