Update. The only time you should question an update is if it’s to a new version (e.g., iOS 12 to iOS 13). New builds have bug fixes and performance enhancements. Always update.

But OP is asking the question in light of jailbreaking. If you update and a jailbreak drops and that jailbreak is not for the firmware you just updated to then you can't jailbreak.

Now I'm in a predicament!

I want an ios 12 jailbreak, so this means I really should update to 12.01 (or should I update to 12.1?).

BUT this would mean losing my lovely ios 10 jailbreak!

Shall I? Shan't I? Shall I? Shan't I?

Figure out what you want most then go with that.

I long ago decided that my jailbreak is more valuable than updating. Since there has been nothing that Apple has offered that I just "had to have" since iOS 6 it's been a pretty easy thing for me to stay put.

My primary phone is running iOS 9.0.2 and has been for three years now. That's where I place my value on this.

So, if a 12 jailbreak was released for iOS 12.1 AFTER Apple were signing it, you’d lose out and remain on the 9 JB.

Eyoungren, brace yourself for this - I might risk losing my 10 JB and update to 12.01, save that blob, then update to 12.1. That way, should a JB come out for 12.01, at least I can go back to it from 12.1. Would that work?

You're getting into blobs, which is a subject I know only the definition of. I've never saved one, never used one and wouldn't know how all that works. I just know what they are for.

As far as losing out…well I've 'lost' out for a very long time. When I get a new iPhone I usually remain on the OS it came with because historically it's been the case for me that any jailbreak released will include my firmware version.

I am not, nor have I ever looked to update once I had a jailbreak. So, I am not losing out on anything. I want to stay on iOS 9.0.2. If I had my way, I'd be using iOS 6.1 on my iPhone 6s+. As I said, Apple has not introduced any feature since iOS 6 I've cared for. And I don't do anything with my iDevices that require new versions of apps or current firmware.

So, I'm on 9.0.2 and I ignore updates because my jailbreak is the most important thing. I don't need or want to be current.

very fair points made sir. Especially about no major ios upgrades for a v V V long time.

I'm going to think again about risking my jb. I just feel the need for both 12 and a jb.

Wish me luck!!

I was happily on 9.3.3 till my iPhone 6s was irreparably damaged late last year. I replaced it with one on 10.2, which I immediately jailbroke. The other day I was looking at Apple watches and was all set to get one until I realized I had to be on IOS 12 to pair it. Needless to say, I made a hasty move toward the exit.

Doesn't matter - right now. Hackers usually wait for Apple to seed the 1st or 2nd major iteration before they release exploits so both these versions will be supported

I done the deed guys. I sacrificed my 10 JB for iOS 12.0.1. It's updating as I type. I sure hope I don't regret this!
