Engadget Review

iOS 12 doesn’t pack loads of new features or a massive redesign -- just lots of polish and a few really thoughtful additions. That might not sound like the most exciting software update, but the many benefits -- better notifications, a more proactive Siri, tools to help you understand your phone use -- make it a must-install. And the best part? If you’re still hanging onto an older iOS device, you’ll probably notice a boost in performance, too.
