The iOS 12 is one of the most awaited updates for Apple users. Although the wider public release of the new operating system is scheduled for September 17, you can already access improved notifications, Memoji, Screen Time, and other new features today.
Later this year, Apple plans to add FaceTime calling with up to 32 participants - but it won't be in the original iOS 12 release, as originally planned.
Apple just unveiled its latest lineup of iPhones and Apple Watches and, even if you don't plan on upgrading, you'll soon be able to update your existing gadgets.
Right after its "Gather Round" event earlier this week, Apple released the Golden Master build of iOS 12 to developers. If you want to use iOS 12 before the vast majority of people, all you need to do is join the beta. Of course, owning the new shiny gadget is always fun and exciting, but getting more mileage from your current iOS device means you're saving yourself money, and you're also helping the environment.

The iPhone should then restart, after which the beta version will appear in the Settings app, in the General Software Update.
All iPhones from the 5S to the X are supported, as well as the iPod Touch 6th generation, iPad mini 2, 3, and 4, iPad Air and iPad Air 2, 5th generation iPad, iPad 2018, and the iPad Pro (9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and both generations of 12.9-inch). However, until then, it's probably safe to say that iOS 12 will introduced a number of great features but isn't going to make an average performing device a world beater.
We won't know the full extent of the changes coming to macOS until Mojave officially launches.
