    How well does it work?

    Biggest question of all:

    DOES IT FIX THE MISERABLE BATTERY LIFE?!

    I'm on 12.0.1 and battery is still excellent at 14 hours offline playback and 10 hours with WiFi apple music streaming.

    iOS 12 works great with my iPod Touch 6 Gen. Battery life is cool for what it is.

    Nope, lol. Mine is still horrible but I think it’s because my screen is lifting up a bit too. I pretty much take it off the charger and it’s at 20% and randomly dies. So I’m now using my back up iPhone 7 as one instead.

    Nope it didn't for me, still need to charge it every morning even if i don't use it. They thing is more useful being permanently connected to my stereo via USB cable.

    Performance is better, battery seems the same as 11. 12.0.1.

    This device was never really fit for purpose. If it had been a bigger seller, then the woeful battery life and limiting workarounds inflicted on users would probably have resulted in a class action suit.

    (mine is semi-permanently tethered too... and standby times are poor even when not in use).

    IOS 12.1 here. I get better than 14 hours playing music.

    Disable Auto Update and background processing to increase battery life. Deleting apps you don’t use helps, too.
