Apple iOS 12 Public Beta is now available for iOS devices

Announced earlier this month at WWDC 2018 in San Jose, Apple has finally released the Public Beta version of the iOS 12 for all. The idea of the pre-release or beta software is to let users familiarise themselves with the new software and at the same time help report bugs before the final software release.
Unlike the final version of the software, pre-release software is mostly stable but might have bugs, a few features might not work properly and you might even end up messing your iPhone. But reports suggest the iOS 12 Public Beta is much stable than the previous generation beta version of the iOS software. However, it is still recommended to download the beta profile on a spare iOS device and not your primary iPhone or iPad.

Apple starts manufacturing iPhone 6s in India

Last year, Apple started the production of the iPhone SE in India, making it the first 'Made-in-India' smartphone. Now the company is all set to add another iPhone to the list. According to a report by The Economic Times, the company has started assembling iPhone 6s in India. The device is being commercially manufactured, which essentially means that if you go and buy an iPhone 6s, there are high chances that it will have the "Made in India" badge on it.
Apple is building the new phone in collaboration with their Taiwan-based manufacturer, Wistron. The Taiwanese company has setup an assembly line for the new device at the Bengaluru facility. The new phone will be an upgrade to the current iPhone SE that has been on the production line since May, last year.
