Currently running 12.1.2. Just noticed 12.1.3 is available.

My 8 has been stuttering, pausing, choking for sometimes 10 seconds at a time. Just started 1-2 weeks ago. On WIFI or cellular. Touching the screen results in no action, and sometimes hitting the on/off button or home button results in no action.

Will go to the store, I'm not risking this. Anyone else seeing this lately?

I have the same problem on my 7. I just reboot it. A temporary solution whilst waiting for a software fix.

I would start with installing the new iOS.

That is what the Store will likely tell you.
Thanks. Yes, I planned to once home on WiFi today. But I wanted a point of reference now rather than keep waiting after the new iOS since my 8 operated perfectly since September until a week or two ago.

Thanks. I tried a hard reset twice now, to no improvement.
[doublepost=1548706867][/doublepost]I should add, speaking of stuttering, almost from day one, often notification alert tones/sounds would come out stuttering or coughing or glitching sounding. It’s not a regular thing that happens often enough to care. But now with bouts of unresponsive phone/screen, it’s sonethung to also watch. Curious if anybody’s experienced that?

Sounds like a busy processor, maybe an app hanging. Have you checked you battery app to see where the power is going?
