    It revives the 6S like it’s new! It’s worth updating to for the speed boost.

    Did it yesterday. Wiped my phone and then updated. Its very smooth and fast. However I'm noticing my battery is crap. I had mine replaced a few months ago too. When I check screen time, Im at 72% with 1:40 min of usage. On 10.3.3 I could get around 2hrs per 10%. Consistently Id see 1-2hrs at 90%, 3-4hrs at 80% so on....
    Hopefully they address is with 12.0.1. Other than that its great. Havent noticed one glitch yet.
    BTW: I have Background refresh to only work with Google Maps and Location settings are at a minimum.

    Just updated and so far, I agree. I was thinking about upgrading; however, this has me second guessing.

    My 6S+ is slightly faster than it was with iOS 11 and seems to be experiencing the same battery life.

    Updated my 6S+ to iOS 12 ytd via iTunes.

    Great first impressions - performance is like what everyone described and as Apple advertised.

    Exponentially more stable and smoother than what 11.0 was. Would recommend to update!

    That was usage, not screen on time. Totally different.

    You’re 100% right. I just saw that a few minutes ago. I don’t really care about screen time. I turned that off.
    You’re 100% right. I just saw that a few minutes ago. I don’t really care about screen time. I turned that off. My usage time I think it’s pretty good or better now.
    At 46% battery I had five hours of usage time. I think that’s pretty good for a 6S plus.

    Just go to battery under settings and scroll down and it will show you your usage time and stand by time .
    I was wrong when I posted my comment yesterday. I was looking at the new screen time app instead of just battery usage under the batteries category within Settings
    So far the update on my 6S plus has been 100% on all facets

    My 6S occasionally stutters when I swipe through the different home screen pages, but otherwise it’s been fine.

    Stutters means?

    Dropped frames/lag/choppy animations when I swipe to the next home screen page of apps.

    You are on iOS 9? Then why would you update? I'm still on iOS 9 on my 6s and it's working perfectly.

    I guess "working perfectly" isn't always the best argument one can depend upon. ;)

    Yeah, there are tradeoffs, definitely. Not enough to sway me, though, in my opinion. Your mileage may vary, of course.

    That doesn’t seem right. Swiping is perfectly smooth on my iphone 6. Is there a chance throttling is enabled in the battery settings menu?
