What will bring iOS 12 to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
The main question that tormented developers, bloggers and users before the release of the 2018 software from Apple is whether the new platform will slow down the smartphone or not. So far, the expectations of optimists have been justified, while skeptics continue to look for hidden flaws in the new OS. Let's look at the example iPhone 7 – is it worth upgrading to iOS 12.
When iOS 12 comes out on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
Traditionally, 3 months before the official release, the company launched beta versions of the platform. Already the first, raw versions pleasantly surprised the testing people.

It happened, Apple finally created software that does not glitch and does not turn the smartphone into a useless brick.
The exact date when iOS 12 will be released on the iPhone 7 has yet to be announced. Presumably mid or second half of September. The usual for the company Apple the time of big announcements. Now curious users can download one of the beta versions, as of August there are already 12 of them.
