Apple announced that iOS 12 will be released on September 17th 2018 and one of the most exciting aspects is the revised iBooks app.

Most interestingly, Mojave also debuts the first UIKit-made on macOS in the form of Apple's own Home, News and Stocks apps. It offers tremendous improvements in performance, even on older devices, and adds a host of new value-added features.

Head to beta.apple.com to get the iOS 12 GM from your device.

Unless you live and die by your Apple TV, let it update to tvOS 12 whenever it wants, or force it to update right away in Settings System Software Updates. To start, faster typing speeds and quicker app launches that will make using your device far less stressful. New features include Walkie-Talkie, a Podcasts app, and Raise to Speak with Siri. If a super fast phone doesn't excite you, perhaps some of these new iOS 12 features will.

Mojave's Dark Mode also includes a new Dynamic Desktop feature that automatically changes your desktop wallpaper to match the time of day. Created to manage the time you spend on your phone and on social media, users can set daily limits and restrictions with the update.

Just don't expect Siri to take out the trash yet.

Leaving the news until the last minutes of this year's almost two-hour presentation on Wednesday, CEO Tim Cook revealed the launch date with little fanfare, mentioning it with about as much drama as he had the update to tvOS, the operating system that powers Apple TV. Now, Do Not Disturb can be turned on temporarily for an hour or so when attending a meeting or function, notifications are now grouped and can be blocked or silenced with just a swipe, and Developers will find a new file format for augmented reality applications in ARKit 2.0. The golden master build, the site says, is expected to be the same version that will be released on September 17.
