    Let everyone know here what you think of apples claimed speed boost for opening apps in iOS 12 and what it’s like on battery life :)

    Yeah I know! Hopefully it makes older devices more useable unlike older iOS versions

    testing on iphone8, too early to really tell but so far it's same as ios11. Siri is still an idiot though, need to fool around with it more. Really liking group notifications

    I’m installing it on my iPads (2017 12.9” Pro and mini 4). Really curious to see it on the mini 4 which feels sluggish on iOS 11.

    iPad Air does seem a little snapper.

    Wow even the X is faster it’s already awesome on iOS 11

    Quick update:

    The 12.9” iPad is running great so far, but the mini 4 is hanging like crazy, especially springboard.

    iOS 12 is surprisingly smooth on my X for a B1. It’s noticibly faster than 11.4 and I’m very much enjoying it right now. No bugs to report yet, all the apps I use work just fine.

    iPhone 6+ seems about the same as iOS 11.4. Home button still seems like it's delaying a little before it kicks in. Still need to vet for some of the known bugs but Apple hasn't updated their bug reports so I'm kinda guessing they are still there. Will wait a day to see if battery life is better. May pop a sim card in again to test that now, actually...

    iPhone X is a bit more responsive with gestures, a welcome addition. Face unlocking does work a bit more reliably/faster, though it may just be me (lighting in the room is also quite good right now). Apps don't seem to open up any faster, Facebook still takes ages to open and load new items. Some apps crash outright upon opening. Looks like I also gotta rebuild my own apps. App switcher seems to pause/delay a little before jumping in so I'm guessing I gotta restore the whole phone to see if that's just because of app config or something like that.

    So far, 6+ is the same, X is a bit... better here and there, worse elsewhere.

    I care about one and only one opinion for this topic: iApplebytes on YouTube.

    Wait, you guys are all responding to the speed of the very first beta, after just installing it?

    Don't you want to let things settle down and index for a bit? Specifically on the older hardware?

    Here are my pre and initial post-upgrade Geekbench benchmark summaries on a TSMC 6S in case anyone is interested.

    I’ll run them again tomorrow after things have settled and edit this post with those results.

    It's a beta 1. Reports of app crashes and some instability are to be expected. The fact that most are saying it's either about the same or faster in terms of performance is actually encouraging.

    Comparison videos will provide the best take on speed improvements

    Well, I think the most performance improvement will be visible on older devices, the iPhone X is already fast
