Apple’s released a brand new version of iOS 13 and the iOS 13.1.2 update brings bug fixes aimed at stabilizing iOS 13’s performance. It’s an important update and it’s an update most iPhone X users will want to install today or at some point in the near future.
That said, there are some reasons you might want to hang around on iOS 13.1.1, iOS 13.1, iOS 13.0, or iOS 12 for a little while longer.
The iOS 13.1.2 update is causing problems for some iPhone X users. We’ve heard about bugs and we’ve heard about a variety of performance issues. And with a new version of iOS 13 on the way, some of you might want to hold out for Apple’s next batch of bug fixes.
If you do decide to install iOS 13.1.2, note that it’s a small download if your device is currently running iOS 13.1.1.

We’ll take you through the problems, your downgrade options, the most important features, the jailbreak situation, and the update’s performance.
iPhone X iOS 13.1.2 Impressions & Performance
We've been using the iOS 13.1.2 update on the iPhone X for several days and the update is performing pretty well right now.
While the operating system feels pretty fast overall, we've seen occasional lag when using the keyboard and when pulling up our Notifications. It's a little bit concerning given the age of the device, but at this point we'll chalk it up to growing pains.
We haven't experienced any abnormal battery drain. We're still able to pull down a full day of use when using a mix of Wi-Fi and LTE.
Connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS) is strong and we haven't noticed an uptick in dropped connections. Speeds are normal.
Our core applications are also holding up after the move. Apps like Asana, Slack, Chrome, Gmail, Dark Sky, Spotify, Google Maps, Amazon, Hangouts, Instagram, and Netflix are stable.
Developers are rolling out iOS 13 support updates so if your apps are struggling, you'll want to check the App Store for an update.
Besides occasional lag, iOS 13.1.2 is doing just fine. And given what's on board, we recommend it to most iPhone X users.
