The iBooks gets a new design, support for audiobooks and from now on - it will be called Apple Books. The bookstore is now part of the Apple Books.

Car Play gets support for third-party navigation apps, so if you don't like Apple Maps - you can now change it.

Also, iOS 12 now groups notifications by app and topics.

Animjois and Messages

The Messaging application is improved with four new Animojis (coala, ghost, t-rex, and tiger) and brand-new tongue detection.

Memojis is the next update for the Animojis - that's an Animoji designed after you. It's like an RPG character creation - you have a ton of options for everything - hair, face, freckles, eyes, sunglasses, ears, you name it.


The public beta update will be available to download by the end of this month.
