The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have made the move to iOS 12.0.1 and Apple’s latest update could have a big impact on your device’s performance.
Apple’s finally released its first bug iOS 12 bug fix update and iOS 12.0.1 comes with a short list of bug fixes and security patches.
Most people will want to download the iOS 12.0.1 update right now or in the near future, but some people might want to wait for Apple’s next update.
While many iPhone 6s users are having a great experience on the new version of iOS 12, others are running into problems. Some of these issues are small bugs, others are impacting day-to-day use. It’s virtually impossible to predict what you’ll see when you install iOS 12.0.1 on your iPhone 6s so you’ll want to be careful.
If you’re moving from the iOS 12.0.1 update, you get the shortest list of changes. If you’re running an older version of iOS on your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, your iOS 12.0.1 will be much bigger. The features and fixes from the updates you skipped are baked into your software.
In this guide we’ll take you through all of those changes so you aren’t caught off guard. We’ll also taking you through the problems plaguing the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus after the release of iOS 12.0.1, show you how to fix these issues, and walk you through the downgrade and what’s coming next from Apple.
First, we want to start with some early impressions of the iPhone 6s iOS 12.0.1 update. We’ve been using the software on the 4.7-inch model and we like what we see thus far.
iPhone 6s iOS 12.0.1 Impressions & Performance
We've been using the iOS 12.0.1 update for a few days now and we've come away impressed with Apple's new firmware.
Overall, iOS 12.0.1 is just as fast as the first version of iOS 12. Apps open up faster, sharing options open much faster, and multitasking is fast and fluid. Animations and transitions look great and we haven't noticed any significant lag during our time with the update.
The iPhone 6s is several years old, but you wouldn't know it with iOS 12 on board.
As for everything else, battery life appears to be normal. We haven't run into any significant issues with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth either.
A few apps are having issues (Chrome and Twitter have crashed once apiece), but that's normal behavior, particularly after a new update.
At this stage, iOS 12.0.1 is performing quite well and it could convince you to hold onto your iPhone 6s for a little while longer.
If you want some additional feedback about the software, take a look at our list of reasons to and not to install iOS 12.0.1 right now.
