The most common problems iOS 12 and their solutions

Update iOS 12 contains performance improvements as well as many new features and changes. Like other significant updates iOS, this release contains some issues. Below we have listed the most common ones and suggested solutions.


1. Update does not appear in Settings

If your update iOS 12 does not appear in the General> Software Update section, first check if your device is in the list of supported models iOS 12.

The update may not appear because you have version iOS 12 GM installed. The build number of this version and the public version iOS 12 is the same, so the update will not appear, because you essentially have the final version iOS 12 installed.

If your device is compatible with iOS 12 and you have not installed iOS 12 GM version, read the instructions on how to install iOS 12 manually via iTunes.

2.No new features appeared

Some new features iOS 12 (Memoji, Commands Siri and camera effects) are not supported on older models.

FaceTime conferences are not available in the first version of the update for everyone, they will appear a little later.

3. Installation error iOS 12

Usually, errors occur when you try to install an update immediately after it is released, and the servers can't keep up with the influx of users.
