The iOS 12.3.2 update could have a huge impact on your iPhone 8 Plus’ performance.
iOS 12.3.2 is the latest version of iOS 12 and the upgrade is available for Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus. It’s not available for the smaller iPhone 8.
iOS 12.3.2 is a maintenance release with just one bug fix on board. And while many iPhone 8 Plus users are seeing improved performance after installing the new update, others are running into trouble on Apple’s new firmware.
As we push away from the release date there’s a growing list of complaints about bugs, glitches, and performance issues. Some of these issues are minor annoyances, other problems are much bigger.
If you’re currently having a great experience on iOS 12.3.1 or an older version of iOS, you need to approach iOS 12.3.2 with caution.
You can’t predict exactly how the software will run on your phone so you’ll want to be ready to face problems head on. This is particularly true if you’re running iOS 12.2 or an older version.
If you move your iPhone 8 Plus to iOS 12.3.2 you can downgrade back to iOS 12.3.1 or iOS 12.3. You can’t downgrade to anything older than that though.
With all of that in mind, we want to take a look at the iPhone 8 Plus iOS 12.3.2 update’s performance, problems, changes, and what the next version of iOS 12 looks like.
iPhone 8 Plus iOS 12.3.2 Impressions & Performance
The iPhone 8's iOS 12.3.2 update requires a tiny download. If you're coming from iOS 12.3.1, the download is a few megabytes.
If you're moving up from an older version of iOS, you can expect a bigger download and a lengthier installation because the features and fixes from the updates you skipped are baked into your version of iOS 12.3.2.

As for the iOS 12.3.2 update's performance, it's currently stable on our iPhone 8 Plus.
We've been using the update for several days now and we've been looking at key areas of performance like battery life, UI speed, and connectivity.
Thus far, battery life is holding up. We haven't experienced any abnormal drain and we're able to get a full day of use.
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS are all working normally and we haven't noticed slow speeds or an increased number of dropped connections. These are common issues after a software update.
The software is fast and we haven't noticed any lag. Control Center, Notifications, and the keyboard are places where we often see lag, but nothing has popped up on our devices yet.
Given its performance and what's on board, we're recommending iOS 12.3.2 to most users.
