iOS 12 Out

iOS 12 is out today.

I downloaded it. Things I noticed:

  • Bedtime can now also trigger DND.
  • DND has a separate setting to be invoked by Bedtime that is not in sync with Bedtime's setting.
  • Measure looks like fun.
  • Screen time looks useful, though it will take some time to tell. It doesn't look like it tells me when I use my phone or apps, only how much.
  • Screen time has a today widget. It's on my default, and I'll probably leave it that way.
  • Cursor functionality looks useful, though is not active in all apps.
  • Voice memos has some new editing features, though my first pass in trimming a clip was not successful.
Things that didn't change:
  • Bedtime still confuses me. I'm not sure if I can get it to track bedtime without also waking me up in the morning.
  • Auto-shutoff still has nothing in between staying on for 5 minutes and staying on forever.
I've been wondering when Wall Street is going to notice that Apple is offering everyone on the previously latest devices a free upgrade. There's no upgrade supercycle this time around. Then again, apparently it was already dead.
