I'm on 10.12.2, I may give it a try but 10.12 has been pretty alright on nTB,

I think I may hold back because of lack of battery time estimate, honestly. and running smooth already,

Apparently it fixes graphics bugs. I would suggest you upgrade to it.

Also, it takes away the remaining battery life feature, so if you're getting less battery life out of the machine than you should, you can pretend like that isn't the case! ;)

My 2016 15" is so much more stable on 10.12.2 than before. It fixes most of my graphic switching issues and lockups. I highly recommend upgrading if you had issues related with the graphic card or lockups.

YES, the lockups seem to be improved. My CalDigit USB-C dock works much better with 10.12.2 now. Nice patch!

I ran the 10.12.2 beta on my MBP since the first dev build was released. I never really encountered any noticeable problems on any of the beta images, so I jumped to the release build on my Mac mini as soon as it was available.

(My mini is my production system. The MBP is what I use for dev/test.)

10.12 was so buggy that I installed the update immediately after its release. Absolutely hate that graphical glitches.

what graphical glitches are you guys referring to, were any of you guys experiencing that on a non touchbar model?

Updated my non touchbar to 10.12.2 last night and I'm still experiencing the graphic glitch at login screen after waking from sleep, but I believe I've nailed it down to being related to f.lux. The jury is still out on battery life, for me anyway.

Has anyone that updated notice if the file transfer glitch was fixed? Like when you transfer large files and backup the new tb mbp the system crashes.

This is fixed in 10.12.2. I can now transfer 200GB+ to external SSD's over USB-C and Thunderbolt 2 without issues whereas before, it would crash my MBP.

Already did, and noticed battery life to be a huge improvement, and this is with indexing and updating the OS which took place starting at 95%. I'm now 4 hours in with multiple apps open (with OneNote and InDesign being a few of them) and still have another 3 left. Signs of good things to come I'd say.
