Essential iPhone X iOS 12 Edition - Kevin Wilson


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.

iPhones run iOS. 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 it with your face - 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.

iPhone X Models

In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at the iPhone X series. The iPhone X, pronounced iPhone Ten, was originally released to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. There are currently four models in the iPhone X series.

The iPhone X is a major redesign of the hardware, doing away with the home button, adding a larger screen, a notch in the top for the true depth camera, and the introduction of Face ID that uses a scan of the user’s face to unlock the phone as opposed to finger print or pin.

With the exception of the iPhone XR, iPhone X series has two cameras on the rear. One is a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/1.8 aperture, with support for face detection, high dynamic range and optical image stabilization. It is capable of capturing 4K and HD video.

The second is a telephoto lens with a 2× optical zoom and 10× digital zoom with an aperture of f/2.4 and optical image stabilization. This camera is capable of producing photos with specific depth-of-field and lighting effects. It also has a quad-LED True Tone flash that attempts to reproduce colours and skin tones more naturally.

What’s New in iOS 12?

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.

FaceTime has also had a few updates. You can now talk to multiple people using Group FaceTime, as well as liven up your chat using various camera effects.

Screen Time is a new feature that allows you to keep track of your iPhone usage, as well as giving you stats and reports on your child’s online activity

Also in the mix are new ways to share photos, Siri has a few new shortcuts, as well as the usual security tweaks and other enhancements.

Setting up Your iPhone

If you’ve just bought your new iPhone and taken it out the box, the process to set it up to use for the first time is very simple. You don’t even have to connect it to your computer.

With iOS 12, Apple have dropped support for the iPhone 4 series.

iOS 12 will run on these devices:

iPhone XS

iPhone XS Max

iPhone XR

iPhone X

iPhone 8

iPhone 8 Plus

iPhone 7

iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 6s

iPhone 6s Plus
