Be Ready to Downgrade
If you encounter problems on iOS 11.2.5 you can get in contact with Apple, try and fix the issue yourself, or downgrade to an older version of iOS 11.
Once the iOS 11.2.5 update is released you'll have the option to downgrade to older firmware. Apple's closed off iOS 10, but you should be able to downgrade to an older version of iOS 11.
If you aren't familiar with the iOS downgrade process, now would be a good time to get familiar with it.
When iOS 11.2.5 arrives, Apple could be signing off on three (iOS 11.2.2, iOS 11.2.1 and iOS 11.2) versions of iOS 11. However, these options won't be available forever.
Apple typically closes off older updates soon after new firmware is released to the public. The company won't give you any warning and once the loopholes to these older iOS 11 updates are closed, they're closed forever.
If you've downgraded before, you should be in good shape for iOS 11.2.5. If you haven't, make sure you get comfortable with the process ahead of its release.
