    Are not installing the developer / beta and waiting for the official release?

    Me. It's just a personal choice. I've never been one of those must-have-the-latest-and-greatest people. I'll let everyone else work out the bugs so I'll have a smooth transition.

    I'm not installing it at this time. May that change in the future? Possibly. But I only have one iPhone and with kids and a family, I depend on my device to work consistently. I had an issue running the last beta that rendered my phone inoperable for a while until I could restore. I can't run that risk, so for now I'm holding off.

    Me too. Each of the last two years I installed the iOS 10 and 11 public betas a few weeks before release, but, remembering the early bugs that were quickly patched in the first few weeks of each when they were stable released, I'm considering staying on iOS 11 until 12.11 comes out for my phone (i.e., I'll skip all of 12.0.x). I have an X, so the performance improvements of 12 aren't that critical for me. However, I'll probably install the stable 12 as soon as it's ready on my iPad Mini 4, again, for the performance advantages.



    1​ Then again, I may change my mind and wait for the first patch, or at least wait until it hits my phone.

    Well, I clearly don’t fall into this category because I pretty much use an iOS beta version year round....

    From what I've read so far... I might have to hold off on the public beta until the official release. Only due to FaceTime.

    I've read that when on iOS 12 beta you cannot FaceTime with someone on an earlier iOS. Unless I decide to keep my iPad on 11 and install 12 beta on my X when available.

    My kiddos love to FaceTime with family.

    Just this afternoon I had a FaceTime call with a friend of mine who is on the latest official release.
    I’m on iOS 12 beta 1 myself.

    Whatever you’ve read is not true.

    I usually wait until the 2nd/3rd public beta before installing. By then, most of the major bugs are usually worked out. Most likely will do the same this time around. Mainly doing it for the grouped notifications more than anything else.

    Not me.
    I’ve always jumped on beta when it’s available.

    Super tempted to install the betas but will end up waiting... too risky and my X is my main and only phone and iOS device. Not worth the risk. Hopefully I can hold out... lol

    The problem I found when installing a beta was some of my apps didn't work.
    I'll be waiting for the official release this time.

    Kinda funny I came from the Android world of Google devices, rooted and rom'ed, where I was updating and tweaking all the time. I guess I just came to love the stability of iOS in its public released from.

    Haven’t had any bugs so far. Doesn’t feel as rough as 11 did.
