Augmented reality is a highlight in iOS 12, where multiple people on their own devices can interact in the same AR experience in real time.

Measure app:

Measure apps that use the phone’s camera to measure real-life objects accurately. This is important for placing objects, like a new desk you want to check out, in AR apps.

3D graphics:

Apple wants you to be able to drop any 3D object into the “real world”. Apple made a new file format called USDZ, which was developed with Pixar.

ARKit 2.0:

Notifications:

Finally, we have seen grouped notifications and will now be grouped by app, topic, or thread and clear them in groups.

Other Features:

Do not disturb during bedtime:

Your device won’t show you all the chatty notifications that will keep you up. In the morning, you can tap to keep those notifications coming. This is a new mode in control centre that you can set up.

Screentime: 

Weekly reports show you how often you use your device, day and night, and how much time you spend in apps. The app gets really detailed: how many notifications from each app, how many per hours, and so on.

App Limits:

You can set a limit on apps and receive a notification that you’ve been using an app too long (you set the limit). You can grant yourself an extension, but they’ll remind you to move on later on. Set it up for yourself or your kids. You can create allowances, including downtime. You can limit your kids in individual apps, like movies and games.
