If you're interested in test-driving these features before they're officially launched in September, you can do so by opting in to Apple's public beta on its website.

Again though, it's a beta, and you should proceed with caution. Just be aware that beta software isn't finished and could be loaded with bugs. But we usually have to wait a few weeks for the public beta to be released.

However, nearly 40 percent of switchers opt for larger iPhone Plus devices, which also makes sense when you consider that the vast majority of Android devices have large screens. The first iOS 12 beta was released shortly after Apple's 2018 WWDC keynote for developers, but now members of the public can give the test software for an early preview.

In order to install the iOS 12 Public Beta, either login or sign up to the Apple Beta Software Program. The public beta will be supported on all iPhone, iPad, and iPad Touch models that can now run iOS 11. The stable version of iOS 12 will be released for all users in the fall. This means you can get the new experience on these eligible devices - iPhone 5s and later models, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad fifth generation and later models, iPad mini 2 and later models, and the iPod touch sixth generation.

The other big theme of the year is new features to help you spend less time using your phone.

With iOS 12, you can expect faster and responsive performance, better notification management, screen time tracking, support for up to 32 people on FaceTime and better privacy features on Safari. All iPhone users can try out Apple's new "Measure" app, with augmented reality technology to estimate the length of things within the camera's view. If you have an iPhone X, there are a couple of extra things for you to try - namely "Memoji", emoji that you can create. Apple is releasing the Workflow app as a new Siri Shortcuts app. Developers will be able to add information to Siri, as well, so that you can add a boarding pass or a music playlist to Siri.
