Apple officially released updates for its softwares, iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.

Citing GSMArena, after several months of testing in beta, iOS 12 finally made available for supporting devices, starting the iPhone 5S.

The latest operating system comes with a strong focus on performance, especially in subjects relating to older devices, such as the iPhone 6.

In some cases, opening the claimed application can be 70 percent faster, with the keyboard appearing in half the time as before.

One new feature is Siri Shortcuts for the iOS application, where Apple’s virtual assistant now supports routines with multiple actions.

The Shortcuts application is created to streamline tasks. Quoted from Apple’s official website, users can use their voice to run Shortcuts, making it easier to use their favourite application.
