iOS 12 is a Leopard-like release for Apple’s mobile OS since its inception and speed-focused iOS 9 release. That means the update is lite on features involves core OS technologies and various under-the-hood tweaks to performance, reliability and lay the groundwork for innovations.
Apple promised the following enhancements in terms of speed:
- 40% faster app launch
