    I installed the beta profile for iOS 12 on my iPhone 8 plus. On beta 2 right now. Strikes me as another minor set of upgrades. it does seem zippy. And I am anxious for Google Maps and Waze to work on Car Play -- but that seems to be more dependent on updated apps from Google.

    The new measurement app is very cool. My wife needed me to measure the size of the area where our dog water bowl is, so she can buy a rubber matt, so the floor doesn't get ruined, and it worked like a charm. A potentially useful, albeit strange addition to the iPhone toolbox.

    I have been run it on my 7+ since it became available to developers.

    Still feels like iOS 11 to me.

    I installed it on my sons 6s so I could put screentime on it and have it turn off YouTube and web browsing as he would just stay up all night using it.

    Worked good until the other day when I went in his room at 2:30 am and he was watching g YouTube. I told him to tell me how he was using it or I would t give him his phone back. He told me when screentime kicks in and turns his apps if he goes into settings then changes the time to a non screentime time.

    Little brat!

    LOL . That's awesome!

    I agree, mostly iOS 11 right now, except for conIsolidated notifications.

    I know Google Maps probably won't come on Car Play until iOS 12 goes live.

    I’m looking forward to the 3rd party nav apps in CarPlay now that we have a vehicle that has it.

    Can't seem to send photos in iMessage to iOS 11 users. Annoying. Obviously a bug, but a big one.

    Have no problem sending to iOS 11 users. They just moved the icon for attaching images.

    It is now the icon on the bottom left as shown below.

    No, I did that, using the icon. But it shows up as a ? on my son's phone. An iPhone 7 should have no problems reading HEIC or is that the problem? Never was a problem before.
