WWDC 2018 is one of the most popular tech events being held in San Jose, California and iOS 12 has managed to steal the show. Yes, iOS 12 happens to be one of Apple’s biggest announcements and it’ll be hitting on our devices very soon.

iOS 12 promises to offer some unique features which include the all new Memoji, a few universal apps for MacOS and iOS, group calling feature for Facetime and many more.

So, here’s what you all can possibly expect from iOS 12, right? Well, it doesn’t just end right here. There are a bunch of lesser known iOS 12 features too which Apple didn’t mention on WWDC Keynote presentation. Let’s catch a glimpse of a few more iOS 12 highlights which we’ll be soon seeing on our devices!

Best iOS 12 Features

1. Extended Animoji Limit

Extended Animoji Limit

The Animoji limit will now be extended to 30 seconds as it was previously only 10 seconds. So, now you could jam up your Animoji sessions and talk to them for a longer duration. Well, apart from this Apple iOS 12 will also support tongue detection for Animojis (Yeah, that’s a thing).

2. Redesigned Notification Alerts

Apple surely mentioned about the revamped notification alerts onstage but what they missed on telling was Critical Alerts. Critical Alerts just how the name says are some important notifications which you can opt for say like whether it’s about collecting reports from your doctor, to pick your kid from school and so on. So, even if Do Not Disturb mode is enabled on your device, you’ll still catch hold of these critical notification alerts.

3. Raw Photo Import

The Raw photo format was added on iOS 10 previously, but now with iOS 12 you will be able to import raw photos from your PC or camera. Apple has also assured that the whole process of importing images from desktop will now be simplified.
