I have it on my iPad Pro , no complaints here.

I don’t think there will be a another beta release.

For me it’s exactly the same as iOS 11. No speed or bugs difference so far.

For me it’s the best version of iOS since iOS 6. Just feels more stable and nippier. I love it... but I still see jank from time to time :(

Same as before better than 11 worse than 10. I will really miss iOS 10 on my iPhone but then again I enjoy it on my iPad Pro which is still running iOS 10

I’d say the best because it is the accumulation of every feature (ok, most features) that have gone into iOS over the years and executes all this more smoothly than it has for at least a couple of years imo. And we’re only at 12.0.

Could I have the public iOS beta 12 on my iPhone X and still run the "normal" watchOS 4.3.2 on my series 3 without any big issues?

Notifications don’t quite do what I want yet. Otherwise no real improvement or change from 11.

iPad Pro 10.5 and an X

It would be great is iOS12 FINALLY give us DEFAULT APPS in the settings. But instead, Apple continues to violate anti-trust laws by forcing their software upon their users.
If you’re not happy just don’t buy the next iphone.

I find it to be very solid. It's not the best versions of iOS (yet), but it certainly has the potential. It's light years ahead of iOS 11, which I had very little issue with, in and of itself. I am extremely pleased, especially for a beta release.

Latest beta releases are so far good and stable. No issue with it. Only most stupid thing is gap between bottom and first row keyboard. This is only iPhone X.

Beta 6 was an absolute nightmare for me. Worst beta I've ever tried... But other than that its been great

I voted for better than iOS 10 and 11. It has definitely sped up an old 5s I have and gave it a new lease on life. The actual user experience to me is not a huge upgrade from iOS 11. That being said though how it benefits older devices is pretty cool.

I’ve been on the beta on and off but it’s not my daily driver because of a few app incompatibilities.

It’s felt like the most stable iOS (public) beta, ever.

On my 7 128, it feels very much like iOS 11.5 but that’s no bad thing at all (and then some).

It’s worth it just for the speed increases and the general feel of bug fixing and polishing.

Having said that...

Disappointed by screen time, which doesn’t feel quite finished and very complicated to use.

In the end, I’d rather that Apple move to a ‘tick/tock’ schedule and always prioritise speed and stability over new features.

Having a phone that just works, feels fast and is rock solid stable are the most important features of them all.
