    Well, I don't think we can reach any agreement at all if you say that. I understand where you're coming from, though.

    The 6 Plus was already stuttering at launch. iOS 12 actually gave it some breathing room compared to iOS 11. I know because my friend has one. Whatever iOS version it has, one cannot escape the 1GB RAM and the weak GPU.

    I’m still on 12.0 on iPhone 6s Plus. Will I regret if I update to 12.1.2?

    Hard to say. My wife’s 6s does not seem to suffer getting slower within 12.x so far. Her’s is on 12.1.2 and seems as “snappy” as it did on 12 (Which is quite quick actually). But the iPhone 8/X has definately suffered a slight slowdown in app launch speed going from 12 to 12.1.2

    The 6s phones will see all the benefits of iOS 12 due to having double the RAM of the 6 series. You're definitely better off on the latest release since you're already in the 12.x realm.
