    Has updating to iOS 12 made your current device any faster?

    iPhone 7+ here, straight upgrade through iTunes from 10.3.3. My phone definitely doesn't feel any slower, but I'm not seeing blazing fast performance like some people have said around here.

    Launching the camera from the lock screen still takes about the same amount of time, for example.

    Yeah! I have the XS Max so I can’t say, but people I know have said the same thing.

    The faster performance is compared to iOS 11 as iOS 10 was anyways fast. So if you find it be at par with iOS 10, then it’s justfied that the performance has increased.

    iPhone 7 - more or less. Certainly less buggy but still liked 10.3 the most. But 12 is still great.

    iPhone 6S and SE - yes. Small but noticeable.

    iPad Mini 2 - Very noticeable. Much quicker in every regard and smoother animations. Same with a 5S and Air 1.

    The older device, the larger the improvement vs iOS 11 anyway.

    I don't find my X to be any faster on iOS 12, but it's certainly not any slower, so I'm good with that.

    Maybe it has made it faster, but I can't notice it at all. iPhone X.

    It’s better then iOS 11, but 10.3.3 was the best.
    Let’s see when iOS reach 12.3 as it could be the beast and will probably make me hesitate to update to 13.

    Maybe slightly. However, the battery life has taken another significant hit, and it was already terrible on the 6s.

    After owning my 8+ since launch iOS 12 felt a little bit faster. Not a lot but it was noticeable.

    6s+

    Worse battery life compared to last version of 11.


    Return to iOS 10 speeds.

    Crashier than last version of 11.

    Basically feels and works like 10.0


    What do we have in 12 that we didn't have in 10?


    All I can think of is customizable control center?

    It's absolutely laughable that a company with the grandness of Apple can't even do better than just adding two functions.

    I’m not saying there are only two functions. You’re saying that. I thought grouped notifications redux was implemented nicely and hence the mention. The security updates you can research to see what Apple has nullified. As you can research the various bits of updates like Group FaceTime that is part of iOS 12. If those don’t meet your litmus test, along with performance updates, of notable updates in a new iOS release, so be it.
