Today’s Apple event was packed full of great things. Speaking of iOS 12, the iOS 12 GM is coming later today for beta testers.
The update will feature the ability to search for songs by lyrics, set multiple named timers, make and receive phone calls, Find My iPhone, and use Siri Shortcuts.
iOS 12 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch will officially launch on Monday, September 17th as a free upgrade for compatible devices.
Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi confirmed the news to Redditor federicotrevisani1, but it will be little more than a minor inconvenience to Siri Short users on these older iPhones.
The good thing about this is that it’s built into the system, meaning you won’t have to set up a fancy new Siri Shortcut once iOS 12 rolls out.

The new OS will receive a major makeover with new features include upgrades to Portrait Mode, Live Photos, Apple Pay, Safari, Siri, and a bunch more. Ms. Weiman will be launching and presenting the new book at the iWorkshop Academy. She will give a 45-minute lecture demonstrating seven tricks from the book.
