A lot of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users have made the transition from iOS 12 to iOS 13.1.2 and iOS 13.0, iOS 13.1, and iOS 13.1.1 to iOS 13.1.2 and like what they’ve seen so far.

iPhone 7 iOS 13.1.2 Impressions & Performance
We've been using the iOS 13.1.2 update for an extended period of time and the update's performance has been pretty solid thus far.
While some users have noticed bugs and various performance issues, we haven't run into any debilitating issues on our iPhone 7 models. Not yet at least.
iOS 13.1.2 is fast. We haven't seen any sluggishness and animations and transitions have been extremely crisp thus far.
The keyboard, which has given us problems in the past, is working fine. We noticed occasional choppiness on iOS 12, but this hasn't been a problem on iOS 13.
Battery life is normal. We haven't seen any abnormal drain. Connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS) is also strong across the board.
Our core apps, which include the likes of Netflix, Chrome, Gmail, Dark Sky, Asana, and Slack, are all working normally at the moment.
App developers are rolling out iOS 13 support updates so if you're having issues with your apps, make sure you're running the latest version.
So far, iOS 13.1.2 is running fine on our iPhone 7 models. That said, if you're having a good experience on iOS 12, iOS 13.0, iOS 13.1, or iOS 13.1.1, you might want to hang around and wait for the next version of iOS 13 to arrive.
