Apple’s new operating software was released yesterday, on Apple announcement day. Along with Oprah, Steven Spielberg and Tim Cook, iOS 12.2 made an appearance and should be available for download on all Apple devices in the near future.

Apple News+ costs $10 a month and it allows you to unite your different magazine subscriptions into a single package that you can share with up to six family members. Through this service you’ll have access to Time Magazine, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Vogue, InStyle, and more. If you’re an avid reader Apple News+ sounds like pretty good deal. You can sign up to a one month free trial.

Siri and Apple TV

These updates allow for a more genuine and easy connection between your devices, allowing you to control them better. For example, MacRumors reports that the new update allows you to command Siri to play a specific program in the Apple TV device of your choice.

5G E

If you’re an AT&T subscriber, you’ll soon see a 5G E connection where the 4G logo used to be. Sadly, this connection is kind of a lie since 5G connections are still not a reality. Hey, at least your phone is getting ready for this big change.

New animals have been added onto the iOS, including sharks, giraffes, owls and for some reason, warthogs.

Customizable Downtime

The downtime feature, which allows you to set parameters on app usage for periods of time, is now more customizable than ever. With iOS 12.2, you’ll be able to schedule your downtime days and hours in advance.

Improved Apple Pay

Apple Pay transactions now look cleaner and show off more information, including the business that charged you, the location, and amount of money you spent. Tapping on the charge will also show you a map of the retailer’s location.
