How to download iOS 12 on your iPhone right now

For iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV users, you'll get upgraded on September 17th in the forms of iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.

Visit beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram directly from the iPhone or iPad you want to update. While Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR will be coming with iOS 12 out of the box, other smartphones receiving this feature will be iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and iPhone 5s. Of course, anyone who has ever had to update their iPhone operating system knows that it can be a more daunting task than simply pressing a button and waiting a few minutes/half a day.

Apple usually releases new iOS updates in and around 10AM Pacific.

In this guide we'll walk you through what we expect from the iOS 12 release date, the update's release time, potential issues, and a timeline for Apple's first major update for iOS 12 (iOS 12.1).




At its "Gather round" event on Wednesday, Apple announce the release date for its operating systems: iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Users must agree to the terms and conditions in order to advance. Or you can connect your device to your Mac and upgrade through iTunes. If you should need to restore your iOS device, you can use this backup and not have to enter passwords.

Excited? iOS 12 will be available for free starting September 17.

Apple is rolling out the stable build of iOS 12 to existing public beta testers. But if you can't wait to play with the new features, there's a way to install it now. The configuration profile should then download and install.

Once everything is done, your device should restart. Moreover, it gets rid of the several nasty bugs that plagued iOS 11 and affected the user experience with each update. Alongside of new devices, however, comes new software updates, which have been in beta since WWDC in June. It's still a good idea to back up your data in case something goes wrong. For parents, iOS 12 lets them set specific app usage time in the device for kids.
