I have been running the beta for the last couple of months. They just pushed the final release out to testers. Man is it fast !!! Native apps are instant and 3rd party a split second to open.

That seems to be the general consensus around the web. What device are you using?




MacBook Pro 13" w/ Touch Bar (Early 2017) | iPad Pro 10.5 Wi-Fi 128GB (Space Grey) | iPhone 8 Plus 64GB (Product RED) | HomePod (Space Grey) | Apple TV 4K | Apple TV (4th Generation) | Apple Watch Series 3 42mm (Space Grey)

Cant say I noticed any difference in speed between ios11 and 12 on my X, but I'm definitely liking the grouped notifications (finally)

Query

 

I've had every iPhone since the 4. A few iPads along the way. Each upgrade I backed up. Restored to the new iPhone, sweet. I got an X a while back, it would not restore. Seems from the error that iOS could not be restored due to the version. Being later on the X than what was on my 6+. Never had that before. (I dont think as I never tried to ensure the old phone was upgraded to the new phone iOS first)

 

Or, was that my issue?

I've been thoroughly impressed with the speed increase on my iPhone 7 and iPhone 5s. I've been less impressed, but still see an improvement, on an iPad Mini 2 (I think?) I have here. iOS 12 combined notifications are fantastic. 

 

 

 

I just wish the iPhone XS Max wasn't so pricey, otherwise I'd be upgrading and enjoying iOS 12 on that.

I’m on the GM

Guess I wasn’t looking for slowness in the first place

The move from iOS 10 to iOS 11 was crap. They basically turned perfectly good hardware at the time (iPhone 7) into a lag-fest, with app crashes, stuttering sound and general slowness, even in system apps. 

 

iOS 12 has basically undone all the damage they did with the 10-->11 move. 

 

The beta's were already much quicker, but the GM is just really the icing on the cake.

12 is running really well on my 6.

 

 

I'd uninstalled 11 after 1 day and kept it on 10 for the past year - 12 seems the same speed as 10 was.

 

 

I'd assumed I'd be replacing the 6 this year but will do the battery and keep it another year now.

For those on GM, did it get it pushed via OTA? I stayed on public betas rather then developer betas this time around so was naturally behind when new betas came out. Yesterday I got an OTA for 12.0 which from reading the update notes it lead me to believe it was the final and official release.

Surely this is the GM only. Anyone else get it

AFAIK the GM released Friday to everyone in Beta programs. Build seems to be 16A366.

Thanks, maybe this is it  Before you install iOS beta, use this section to back up your device in iTunes, then archive or copy your backup. If you ever go back to the current version of iOS after an iOS beta update, only an archived or copied iTunes backup works.

 

I backed up iOS to iTunes on my 6+, but the X had a later version. When I restored it failed, I think as my restore version was older then the X version. Does that make sense?
