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.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.

Figure out what you want most then go with that.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?

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.
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.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?
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.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.
Beta testers.Is that the one that goes to beta testers? Or to the general public?
If you're not planning on jailbreaking I'd say update. It's a bug fix update, no new features. But if you're wanting to jailbreak I'd stay on the earliest version possible.what’s best to do stay on iOS 12 or update to 12.0.1
