You Don't Need to Install iOS 11.2.5 Right Away
Apple's iOS 11.2.5 update is shaping up to be a solid release for those of you dealing with iOS 11 problems and you might be tempted to install it the second it's officially released.
For some of you, particularly those using the iOS 11.2.5 beta or dealing with an annoying iOS 11 problem, that's perfectly fine. However, some of you will be better off waiting a few hours, a few days or, in some cases, a few weeks before committing to iOS 11.2.5.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid installing new iOS software on day one. iOS updates can wreck havoc on your device's performance and particularly the performance of older devices. If you own an iPhone 5s or iPhone 6, be careful.
