Apple just released the first iOS 12 beta to everyone

You will first need to enroll into Apple's beta programme by following this link. The first public beta of iOS 12 is now available to everyone, and if you're fearless, you can head over to Apple's site now to download it. Once that's done, just go to Settings General Software Update, and you should be able to start downloading iOS 12 Public Beta. Do keep in mind that anyone with an Apple ID can download the public beta of iOS 12.

Apple added several features and performance fixes to iOS 12. Once you've authorized the computer to recognize your iOS device, put the device into recovery mode. It is also recommended that you perform a full device backup via iTunes so that you can downgrade back to iOS 11.4 with your existing data.

Be warned - this is still Beta software.

Prior to today's public launch, the beta had only been available to iOS developers willing to fork over the $99/year for an account.

Some of the top new features in iOS 12 include grouped notifications, new digital health tools such as Screen Time, a brand new Measure app, new apps and gestures on the iPad, Siri enhancements, and much more. In iOS 12, Siri will start to look for things you do often and suggest shortcuts - such as placing the order for your morning coffee whenever you start to stir. That means that it's likely there will be problems, not only with Apple's own apps and operating system but also with apps made by other companies.
