iOS 12.2 has been in beta for quite a while now and those who have been waiting for the update to exit beta can download the full and final version of the software today.

One of those services, Apple News Plus, launches alongside the release of iOS 12.2 and macOS 10.14.4.

iOS 12.2 is also necessary to set up the imminently arriving "Hey Siri"-enabled new AirPods, and includes support for the Logitech Crayon on Apple's iPad Pros and other iPad models".

Apple also announced Apple Card, a credit card that lives inside Apple Pay, a new Apple TV app for users to subscribe to individual channels, and Apple TV Plus, the company's subscription service for original programming. Users with compatible devices have also received access to four new Animoji: a boar, owl, giraffe, and shark. To keep your iOS device safe, we highly recommend backing up your data and updating.

Once you've got the battery and WiFi bits sorted out, just navigate to Settings General Software Update. If you don't see the update immediately, try again later as Apple's servers might be getting hammered from everyone trying to update at the same time.

In addition to new features and tweaks, the update brings new support and bug fixes, including Air Quality Index support in Maps for US, UK, and India, improved Apple TV Remote stability on iOS, a 5G E icon for select devices on AT&T's 5G Evolution network, and improved audio recording quality in Messages.
