Having installed the iOS 12.1 update, everything is snappier. The animations are a smoother and everything feels more refined. And yes, even safari is loading pages that much quicker. The battery appears to be lasting longer too. When I was using public beta 5 things were smooth. But this is unreal. What a difference. I noticed it immediately on my first swipe. Is it like taking a sugar pill that your doctor says is cure all wonder drugs? Maybe, but does anyone agree? My Xs Max just screams speed. Even Geekbench has risen.
