is it worth updating or staying with 12.1.2? opinions?
Well, Group FaceTime has an issue in 12.1.2 and is disabled server-side. And then whatever 12.2 offers isn't there. So depends on what might be "worth it" for you.

Just gonna give my personal opinions here, after installing io 12.2 phone is a little more slower and battery consumption is more intentsive.

Is Apple still signing for 12.1.4? Usually there is window (1-4 weeks) for users who still want to update to the 1 version older than the newest one.
If this is possible, go for it as 12.1.4 has fixed group FaceTime security and Apple hasn’t put US-only features like news+.

I updated to 12.1.4 just few hours before release 12.2. It’s quite stable, fast, cold, battery is good (but not as good as 10.3.3 where I upgraded from).

My battery is just fine with 12.2. I did a restore from iCloud backup before upgrading and everything is running perfect.

I just did an OTA update on my 6S and its no different to before really. Battery isnt brillant as it needs replacing but installing this update hasnt made any difference to what i'm getting out of it.

Seems like iOS 12.1.4 is no longer being signed as of today: https://www.macrumors.com/2019/04/04/apple-stops-signing-ios-12-1-4/
