How to Get the Final Version of IOS 12 Before Monday’s Release
The iOS 12 Golden Master, due out Monday, September 17, is now available. If you want to try out the new iPhone and iPad operating system a few days before everyone else – by “everyone” I mean “normal people who don’t use open beta operating systems” – that’s how.
How to get iOS 12 Golden Master
To get started, sign up for the Apple Public Beta Program . You’ll want to do this through the Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad because it’s the easiest way to get the process to work, especially when you need to install a beta profile on your device. Once you do that and restart your iPhone, you’re ready for the big update. Click Settings > General > Software Update and download and install everything available from Apple.
I’ve been using the iOS 12 public beta for a while now, so I’m not sure if you will be allowed to download the GM release right away or if you have to install multiple updates before you get the GM release. Either way, please revisit this Software Update section after restarting your iPhone – after installing any version of iOS 12 – to make sure you don’t have anything else to download.
Remember to delete the iOS beta profile
Once you’re done, you can take the extra step of opting out of Apple’s software beta program, which will prevent you from receiving a potentially buggy version of iOS 12.0.1 or any other agreement Apple plans to use for the first update to iOS 12. So Thus, you will keep the “release” version of iOS 12 until Apple checks for future updates and releases them to everyone. And you can always re-enroll in the public beta program if you like, as soon as you get a message that iOS 13 is ready to test.
To do this, open “Settings”, scroll down a bit and click “Profile”. Click on the iOS 12 beta software profile and click Remove Profile. Enter your device password, click Delete again and allow copying.
IOS 12 has a lot to explore , including Memoji, Screen Time, a lot more customizable lock screen notifications, ARKit 2 (for augmented reality collaboration), and Siri Shortcuts not to be confused with the standalone Shortcuts app. … You won’t be able to play around with this this weekend, but the existing Apple Workflows app should convert to Monday shortcuts . If not, and Apple has another clever way to manage turnover, we’ll let you know. You should – presumably – also be able to use Google Maps or Waze via CarPlay once iOS 12 gets its public release on Monday. (How many years did it take?)
Oh yeah, group FaceTime isn’t there either. This will happen sometime after the big launch of iOS 12 (just like the iPhone XR).
