You can now download iOS 12.3 final IPSW links and over-the-air (OTA) update for all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices.
The release comes after weeks of internal and external testing and finally gives access to Apple’s latest iOS changes.
This iOS 12.3 release comes with a fairly major bump in terms of version numbers but it doesn’t offer the same level of functionality that you would expect from that version. Still, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t without its merits and definitely does add value to any device running the firmware.
As a quick and succinct overview, iOS 12.2 offered Apple News+ amends, Animoji changes, and other inclusions, whereby this iOS 12.2 release features primarily on the new Apple TV app across iOS and tvOS.
With this installation, the TV app brings a brand new fresh look and offers brand new functionality. Apple has included a brand new machine learning algorithm at the heart of the TV app which takes the previous viewing into consideration in order to offer highly tailored recommendations.
Apple has also streamlined all content into dedicated sections, such as Movies and TV Shows, in order to make the app a lot more usable for those interacting with it. There is also a brand new “Channels” section that essentially unearths subscription services which are available to consumers for new content. This is a huge update for anyone who will regularly use the TV app but can be classified as relatively minor for others with the usual bug fixes in.
Any device owner with a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch can choose to download this latest iOS 12.3 release with immediate effect. It can be downloaded as an over-the-air (OTA) update directly from the device itself, via Settings > General > Software Update, or as an IPSW download for those who prefer to go with a brand new stock installation of iOS.
If you choose the latter, it will require the latest version of iTunes and going through the process of manually installing to the device for a fresh installation of iOS 12.3. Make sure to do a full backup beforehand if your data is important to you. You can see all of the relevant IPSW links below.
