iOS 12 Hidden Features (in Beta 1)

by birtanpublished on November 1, 2020

hey guys what is going on this is AI Apple geek and today I want to show you some of the hidden features inside of iOS 12 that you may not have known about now obviously there are a lot of new features inside of iOS 12 that aren't really on the surface the things that Apple announced at their WWDC 2018 which is kind of like their selling point things but what about the things that actually matter in day-to-day use so first off I just want to quickly mention that I won't be talking about the big trademark features that Apple has on that website those things will be pretty

Widespread by the time this video gets to YouTube if you guys want me to review the bigger features definitely be sure to let me know in the comments all right so the first thing I want to talk about is that face ID supports more than one face now so if you go into settings and you scroll down here to a face ID and passcode I'm just gonna enter this in inside of the face ID settings you can scroll down here and there's a new button for setup and alternate appearance when you click on that it's gonna bring you to the face ID setup screen again just like you did the first

Time and you can set up two faces now this is actually for when you're wearing stuff or if you look different you're wearing makeup or whatever however you can also use this to set up a completely different person which i think is pretty nice so it's no longer limited to just you free swag right so i just want to quickly remind you guys i OS twelve is in beta right now and it's extremely unstable so if you guys have not yet updated on your main device do not do it unless you have a backup device to play around on I would not recommend it if you already did don't worry just wait

Until more stable betas come out and be sure to update back to the video speaking of face ID on the lockscreen there's actually a really handy new feature that I really wanted in iOS 7 but it never came it basically allows you to retry face ID when you swipe up you guys can see that face ID kind of fails cuz obviously my camera is not me usually what you'd have to do is you have to hit cancel then you gotta go swipe up again or you have to play with this little home bar thing to make it work however in iOS 12 you can now just swipe up again and it'll repeat face ID

So if I go ahead and put my face in and it'll work just like that you can just swipe up again to activate face ID also the face ID has been really quick like I'm not even looking directly into the phone and it's just a lot faster than iOS 11 was and as you guys saw briefly their reach ability has sort of a new interface on the iPhone 10 I'm not sure about the other devices but when you activate this you get like this little arrow that allows you to drag back up on the screen alright another cool little thing I want to share with you is that you know how on the iPhone

10 you take a screenshot with the volume buttons and the power button well a lot of people been getting the accidental screenshots you know when you pull your phone out of your pocket it just takes a screenshot because you know you pinch down too hard on the sides or whatever there is now actually a prevention for that in iOS 12 when you first like when your phone is off and you click the buttons – you don't take your phone out of your pocket it actually does not take the screenshot whereas before it did for example here on an iOS 10 device if the device is off and go ahead and put in

The screenshot command it will wake up taking a screenshot which can be really annoying but in iOS 12 they actually put a prevention for that so when you click the screenshot buttons it does not do that now low-power mode now supports hey Siri and it will activate even when you're in low-power mode so that's no longer a restriction of low-power mode alright so the next thing I want to talk about is some of the hidden settings for Do Not Disturb if you go into settings and Do Not Disturb there is a new bedtime mode which basically means it will silence all incoming notifications

Okay so when you activate bedtime mode it will look something like this your screen is gonna be really really dark and it's gonna say calls and notifications will be silenced notifications will also be sent to history the history means when you when you swipe up like this it tells you your notifications this is really nice and it's easier on the eyes when you just wake up to go check your time and you're not just blasted with all these notifications so inside a control center you do have a 3d touch toggle now for Do Not Disturb so basically you can

Activate do not disturb and it'll turn off automatically after timer or you can even set it to you don't occasion so if you like go to the movie theater you can turn this on and it'll automatically turn off when you leave the theater which is really cool and also just the quick mention here of screen time this is one of the things he talked about in the keynote basically this feature tells you how much of your device you're using and what you're using there are several different modes I'm not gonna get into all of them but some do require you to

Set a passcode but they don't give you the option to take off the passcode if you so choose so I found out that this is the same code used inside of the traditional restrictions tab under general so if you want to disable or change your passcode you have to go there to do it there is no option for it inside of screen time there are also now lock screen suggestions for your application so for example if I missed a phone call it will show up with a suggestion and it will tell me to call that person back and that missed call was at this time these notifications are

A different color than the normal notifications but it's still pretty handy to get a little reminder of you know if you missed a call something important and this isn't just restricted to the phone it's for other apps as well also when you have a notification on the lock screen you can go ahead and slide over and hit and manage and it will give you the options to deliver quietly which means it silences the sound but still gives you the notification or to turn off notifications for this particular notification and of course it will let you go to these settings once you unlock

To adjust to choose what happens with that apps notifications also in the control center settings if you scroll up here it is now a separate tab and when you do go in here there is a new button for scan QR code and it's the same when you 3d touch on the camera icon there's now a scan QR code when you open it up it'll actually just open up like this and you can use this right now to scan any codes that you might want to also on the iPhone 10 and the status bar inside the control center now has a bigger font so it is easier to see and speaking of the status bar I did want to quickly

Talk about the iPad the iPad is a device that will probably get an iPhone 10 style refresh later this year and the reason why I say that is because they've converted the gestures remember that pinch in and the swipe up to to the dock and stuff like that on the iPad they've added a new control center swipe down like this just like on the iPhone 10 and a home gesture for swiping up so if I'm in an application I can just swipe up to go home just like on the iPhone 10 and I can also enter multitasking by holding up like that or I can also swipe in between apps just

Like on the iPhone 10 by swiping up and over which is pretty interesting so there is really no need for the home button anymore except for touch ID this really speaks to a newer iPad and later in the year that has face ID to really take advantage of these gestures really interesting stuff but anyways guys that's gonna be it for this video surely Apple will add a lot more features in the future these are just some of the hidden things that I managed to find I hope you guys enjoy the video if you guys did don't forget to rate me up that'd be great also if you want more

Updates on iOS 12 follow me on Twitter that'd be great and I will see you guys in the next video peace
