Apple has just reached a new milestone for its mobile operating system. Barely four weeks since its public rollout, the new iOS 12 is now running on half of iOS devices worldwide. This include the iPhone, iPad and 6th generation iPod touch models.
Apple’s latest iOS 12 is finally available and it’s rolling out now to supported iOS devices worldwide including Malaysia. If you’re still using an old iPhone 5s or iPhone 6, this new update might just make your device feel a lot snappier than before.
