iOS 12 Release Date: 6 Things to Expect & 5 Not To



Expect a Big Download

Expect a Big Download

Given it stature as a new version of iOS, we expect the iOS 12 update to command a fairly hefty download size for all compatible iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

The exact size will remain a mystery all the way up until the final version is released this fall (the Gold Master/final iOS 12 beta will give you an idea about its final size), but you can expect the download to be larger than your standard iOS release. This is important to keep in mind as we approach the iOS 12 release date.

First of all it means you're probably going to encounter lengthy download times on release day as thousands of iOS users slam Apple's servers with requests. 

It also means some of you might need to temporarily (or permanently if your device is full of clutter) delete files in order to make room for iOS 12. If your device's storage is nearing its threshold, think about doing some cleanup ahead of time. 

The exact size of iOS 12 will depend on your device and the version of iOS you're currently running. 

If you're already on iOS 11.4.1 you'll see the smallest download size. If you're on an older version of iOS 11, you're going to encounter a larger download due to the updates you skipped.
