Just as the title says, I'd like to know how's iOS 12 working for the 9.7 iPad Pro users. How many hours of on-screen battery life are you getting?
How's performance?

Air2 here and iOS12 has been excellent with no complaints. Considering your device has better specs, I'd say you should have excellent results also..

I still can't get the new battery stats to work right and even if I did, they're awful compared to the old SOT/Standby readings from previous iOS versions. I can only say, I haven't noticed any difference in battery life, at least 10 hours before I need to charge. Of course, that changes when I play intensive games or watch movies..

I have a 10.5 2017 iPad Pro and battery life is okay. I had to change my notifications around since everything from my phone was also coming to my iPad. I don’t use it much so I get about 2-3 days per charge.

Zero issues here with our air 2 and our 9.7 Pro. iOS 12 gave them both performance improvements.

I go 2-3 days between charges on a 9.7 with 12.1 with moderate use. That's a bit better than on iOS 11 (anecdotally).

I haven't noticed anything negative with iOS 12 and my 2016 9.7 IPP. I used it extensively during the week of Halloween.
