iOS 12 is upon us! The end is nigh! Let he who hath understanding reckon the number of the iOS. God's wrath with the wicked is the assurance of his mercy and love for the righteous. Now hear ye in the distance how the wretched cry, "Why didn't I wait to update? Now my shit is fucked."
This is mostly just an incremental update, so there is no reason to expect a lot of problems if you do update. But this is my annual remind that there will always be some problems. I've already seen about a dozen apps scramble out updates to fix iOS 12 bugs. Just give it time. Most developers don't bother with the iOS beta, so they're only now finding out about any bugs. Give them a month or two to get things sorted.
You may be very tempted to rush to update this year when you hear the promise of performance improvements on older devices. In deed, there are a lot of people who seem to be experiencing this immediate benefit to updating. But there seems to be a cut off on performance gains around the iPad Air 2. I've been watching mixed reports from iPad Air 1 users, but most seem to think it didn't improve things at all.
Doug Woods from thesoundtestroom is fortunate enough to have an iPad Air 2! Previously he could only run 3 instances of SynthMaster One before his CPU crapped out, but now on iOS 12 he's able to run 5!
