According to their predictions, a public beta version of iOS 12 is likely to be released on June 26.

However with these changes to iOS 12, it means that silly and unnecessary screenshots should be a thing of the past. It isn't simply the system elements like the dock and window chrome that are going dark, Apple's native apps now plug into the dark theme as well as apps which are built with the latest MacOS APIs in mind. Siri will give suggestions based on some app actions based on your smartphone usage. And then you'll need to stump up $149.

The good news is that Apple is fixing that with iOS 12.

Other upgrades to Finder include new quick-look functionality, such as editing options for photos and videos. For example, the iPhones 6 and 6 Plus, for example, will open the keyboard 50% faster, with the camera opening 70% faster when the user accesses it by sliding the finger from the screen is locked.

Apple kicks off its annual conference for developers on Monday at 10 a.m.

There's a new preview screen that shows users where they last left off in an eBook, as well as a new store that "makes browsing through eBooks and audiobooks better than ever".

Microsoft buys popular coder hangout GitHub for $7.5 billion
In August, GitHub announced that it was looking for a CEO to replace Chris Wanstrath , one of the company's co-founders. GitHub has become so valuable because it's at the very centre of nearly every development project out there right now.

The announcement was made during the 2018 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in San Jose, California, which also included other new features and updates coming to iOS 12.

■ Apple is also planning an update to ARKit, its platform for developers to build augmented-reality experiences on iPhones and iPads, which it announced previous year.

Also in iOS, a new Do Not Disturb function can impose a black sleep screen on your iPhone, lest your sleep be distracted by middle-of-the-night notifications.

The "Play Media" intent boasts full HomePod support as well but you still have to set it up through the Shortcuts app on your iPhone before querying Siri on HomePod directly.

"Grouped Notifications", a feature of Android, has been introduced in the new iOS. Users can now also put time limits on the certain app after which they will be notified if they use that particular app for more duration.

iOS 12 will be available as a free software update for iPhones 5s and later, and the most recent iPads in the autumn.
