About the Author

Kevin Wilson has made a career out of technology and showing others how to use it. After earning a master’s degree in computer science, software engineering, and multimedia systems, Kevin worked as a tutor and college instructor, helping students master such subjects as multimedia, computer literacy and information technology. He currently serves as Elluminet Press Publishing’s senior writer and director, he periodically teaches computing at college in South Africa and serves as an IT trainer in England.

Kevin’s motto is clear: If you can’t explain something simply, you haven’t understood it well enough. To that end, he has created the Computer Essentials series, in which he breaks down complex technological subjects into smaller, easy-to-follow steps that students and ordinary computer users can put into practice.

iOS 12

iOS is a mobile, multitasking operating system designed specifically for iPads and iPhones. iOS 12 is the latest release for iPhones and iPads.

An Operating System is a program that manages the device’s hardware resources such as memory, processor and storage. The Operating System also provides a platform for you to run apps such as web browsers, maps, email, photos, games and so on.

The iOS user interface is a touch screen, meaning you can directly manipulate sliders, switches, buttons and icons on screen using your finger.

iOS has a main screen called the home screen containing icons that represent apps. You can download countless apps from the App Store - you’ll find an app for almost anything you can think of.

Security has improved on these devices, you can unlock just with a finger print - no need to keep remembering a PIN.

Finally there’s Siri, the voice activated personal assistant that uses natural language AI to interpret voice commands you speak out loud. You can ask Siri to send messages, dial a number, as well as search the web, and answer certain questions.

What’s New?

With iOS 12, Apple have concentrated on improving performance - meaning apps load faster, and are generally more responsive.

iBooks has been renamed Apple Books and makes it easier to find and read your ebooks.

Apple News app has been redesigned, making it easier to keep up with the news that interests you.

The control center has been moved and you can now find it by swiping downwards from the top right hand edge of the screen.
