I had a little angst about this since I’m traveling on an 11-day trip starting tomorrow. Given some encouragement by my fellow MPU listeners about how stable the betas have been, I decided to update everything on day one to give myself as long as possible to resolve anyissues before I leave on my trip.
I waited about 3 minutes after it became available.
For Macs I typically wait several months, until version xx.3 becomes available. But I’m thinking about upgrading sooner these days, especially given Apple’s recent, massive open betas that seem to catch major problems.
I had the public beta installed… So I honestly didn’t even care about the iOS 12 release date. Heck, I completely forgot till I saw the prompt on my phone this morning. Installed it right away. I guess that kinda counts as a day 1 install? (And there’s the time difference and what not)
I updated everything today. So far, my only clues that anything has changed are a) Overcast has a new look, and b) Siri is waaaaay worse. I hope it’s first-day-of-school jitters and not the new normal.
I usually wait a week for iOS devices. I usually do my iPad Air 2 first since it’s just a consumption machine. Then I’ll do my iPhone. I doubt it but there’s a chance I will not update to iOS 12 til I get my new iPhone Xr.
I think the only thing I’m truly excited about is Siri Shortcuts. I’m more excited to download podcasts to my watch.
I just tried going through MacStories ios12 review but it’s just so daunting.
