    I have been running the public beta and have found it the smoothest, pain-free beta I have ever run. I appreciate that perhaps this IS the thing about IOS 12 - the speed and smoothness increase. But not much else is really wowing me. I like the grouped notifications and the ability to easily turn off the ones from when they appear. How about you? If there is one thing that makes you excited about this release, what is it?

    Running the dev beta on my ‘daily driver.’ Very quick and responsive on my X, and the group notifications are a much welcome feature!

    Not really excited about much so far. I'll be happier when it releases for the general public. I've found a few occasions where I would have enjoyed a group FaceTime call. But aside from that, there isn't much exciting going on for me.

    Honestly... Parent GOD mode (AKA Screen Time)

    I am already using it to give the kids some awareness on how much they are using their phones

    Do your kids have to be using the beta as well for this to work?

    Yes. I have them on the betas. You also need to be using family sharing to see their usage from your own device

    Ah ok. Gotcha. I was going to set this up if they didn't need to be on the beta. I'm already set up with Family Sharing.

    Put them on the beta... iOS 12 beta is one of the most stable betas to date.

    A beta is still a beta. I think around iMore there is this habit of pushing others towards things that aren't generally recommended lol. We should be careful about that. Installing beta software on everything is one of those things, imo.

    I run it on mine and I've experienced a few quirky bugs. But at the end of the day, I NEED my children's devices to perform. I can deal with potential issues. I don't want them to have to. Case in point, last years iOS 11 beta rendered my brothers iPhone 7 unusable. Requiring a trip to the Apple store where he was told by the Apple reps, "Don't run beta software on your primary/only device". Those recommendations are offered by Apple for a reason, ya know?

    I hear you. I only push those that can have it. With that I mean that I know they’re quite capable of handling minor issues.

    I wouldn’t say “excited” but group notifications

    There’s nothing to be too excited about this year but Screen Time and grouped notifications are both really nice features. I was also able to FaceTime my mother yesterday disguised as a poo Animoji which was really nice.
    So, what excites you about IOS 12?-5d127c48-bf27-47ac-bdee-361f3814e7fb.jpg

    This combined with the new gestures makes this phone the most enjoyable phone I've ever used. It's just so fun to navigate!

    Nothing about iOS 12 excites me in regard to new features. Having said that, I am excited to be running iOS 12 and to experience how smooth and fast the user interface is.

    The fact that it does not feel like hot garbage anymore. IOS 11 had to be some of the worst IOS in recent memory, even on the flagship Iphone X the bugs were ridiculous. Loving IOS 12 and the betas so far.

    IOS 12 has completely changed the interface of the X IMO. It’s so smooth and fast now I love it.

    Ive only had it for 12 hours so difficult to say. Nothing earth shattering.
    Smoother and more responsive perhaps.
    More security.
