Apple adds new apps, upgrades favorite apps and changes how you will use even the most basic iPhone tools like Messages and Stocks. There are also major changes to Do Not Disturb, parental controls and CarPlay.
Siri now allows you to make your own controls, which will allow you to essentially combine all of your favorite apps into one command. Originally Apple planned to add Group FaceTime, but this feature is not coming with the initial release of iOS 12.
