Video: iOS 12.4 is Out! – What’s New?
Hi everyone. Aaron here for ZolloTech and today apple released iOs 12.4 to the public. Now depending on which version you had before, if you had ios 12.3.1 or 12.3.2 it would come in around 347.3 megabytes like it did on my iPhone eight plus. However, if you are on the Beta of Ios 12.4 it was probably over two gigabytes as it was on my iPhone 10 so just keep that in mind depending on which version you're coming from. Now if you're on ios 13 you will not be able to get this without using iTunes to roll back to this version. So just keep that in mind.
And also if you're running ios 12.4 Betas, you can just delete the Beta profile now and that is found under settings. Then we go to general and then if you have the Beta profile it will be listed under profiles down here and then you would just delete the profile if you have it. Let's take a look at the build number. The build number is 16 g seven seven and there are not a lot of of noticeable changes to be honest. In fact, the one we thought we'd see already has to do with apple card and we haven't seen that yet, so it's still not present on any of these devices. So that means they'll probably roll it out a little bit later and this will work fine for any device and then eventually we'll just get apple cart. Now the first thing would, this update is apple has improved security on iPhone and iPad, so that's really nice. There's probably some bug fixes there as well, but the next thing has to do with wireless transfer or set up of a new device. So let's take a look at that.
One of the main features of Ios 12.4 other than apple card, which we haven't seen yet, is when you're setting up a phone, transferring from maybe an old phone such as an iPhone eight plus to a newer phones such as an iPhone 10 10 s Max or whichever phone you have after you've actually acknowledged the account and paired them together already, you'll get a new data transfer screen. And this transfer your data screen now allows you to transfer directly from a phone instead of having to use Wifi with iCloud. So you'll see it says transfer directly. So this iPhone will be ready with your data when you finish setting up time to transfer 15 to 20 minutes. So you now have this option if you want to transfer directly from phone to phone. Whereas before you had to kind of get some of the setting information from the old phone to the new one and then it would pull all of your information from iCloud. You also have some other options now as well. And after it sets up your apple id, it will give you some other options.
And under other options you've got all of the old options you had before, such as move data from android or restore from an iTunes backup. So it's a nice new little feature that they've added. Now some of the other changes have to do with apple news. So if we go into news and you've subscribed to the news plus subscription, any of your magazines or newspapers or anything like that are now at the top. So it's a little bit easier to see and it's at the top of your feed and you can just get to it more easily. Now also, they've made it so that if you've downloaded that magazine and even don't have an internet connection, maybe you're on a plane, you have no connection whatsoever. You can still go in and read the different magazines that you've downloaded.
So that makes it much more convenient, of course. And then also if you've downloaded a lot of different magazines and things, let's go over to see all, you can download any of these, but if you've downloaded a bunch of magazines and then you want to clear the history of that, it now adds the ability to clear downloaded magazine magazine issues by selecting history. So if you've got to follow and then you go to history at the top. If I had a history I could just clear it here and clear all recommendations, clear all or clear the history. So that's something they've added and for some reason the apple news app is not working really well right now, so there may be an issue. Maybe a lot of people are trying it out. I'm not really sure. That's really it for anything on the surface that they've changed. They've also updated the apple watch so that it now re enables the walkie talkie function. So they disabled that.
Now they've re enabled it because they've patched it and then also that's all the same updates on all the iPhones and the iPads. Let's take a look at the Geek bench scores. I ran those really quickly on the iPhone eight plus and you'll see for the single core we have 4,226 multicore is 10,513 compared to the history since this one was on the prior version a it's about the same, maybe a little bit of an improvement on the multicore score and that's really it. Everything seems to be fast and fluid. Battery life should be pretty good. It was fine on Ios 12.4 Betas with no issues whatsoever. Uh, some of the older Betas had poor battery, but this one should be pretty good. I would expect you to be able to get through a day or two or a day and a half or so with no problem.
And this is my iPhone eight plus at 97% battery life. And you'll see I haven't used it too much, but just today I've used it for an hour or so and then it updated and I haven't even charged it, so I need to charge this, but we'll do a follow up and see how it's holding out after a couple of days. As far as speed and everything, landscape works fine, no issues there. 3D touches working like it does on Ios 12 not like ios 13 so everything seems to be okay. Things are fast and fluid. Apps are opening a nice and fast. Scrolling is nice. There's no lag or anything like that. If we go into my library here, everything's Nice and smooth, so that's really it for Ios 12.4 let me know if you've found anything else in the comments below.
