7 Things to Know About the iPhone 5s iOS 12 Update is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The iPhone 5s iOS 12 update is finally out of beta and today we want to take iPhone 5s users through the most important things to know about the upgrade including a look at its initial performance.

Initially, we thought the iPhone 5s would stay put on iOS 11. The device got four major upgrades (iOS 8-iOS 11) and that’s typically when Apple pulls the plug on new features, bug fixes and security patches.

All of that changed at WWDC 2018 when Apple confirmed plans to push the iOS 12 to the device in the fall. It’s unclear what this means for the future, but it could mean iOS 13 updates for the aging iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus next year.

In addition to another year of software support, Apple’s also confirmed some major performance enhancements for the iPhone 5s. Apple says the iPhone 5s will open apps 40% faster, swipe to the camera from the lock screen 70% faster, show the keyboard faster, and deliver better all-around performance.

Apple’s intentions are good and many users are already seeing performance gains in the early going. That said, the iOS 12 update could cause problems on your device so you should be extremely careful when you decide to upgrade your iPhone 5s to the latest software.

With that in mind we want to take you through the iPhone 5s iOS 12 update. Our walkthrough includes a quick look at the software’s performance in key areas like UI speed, battery life, and app performance.

It’ll also take you through the iOS 12 problems iPhone 5s users are running into, what you need to know about the iOS 11 downgrade, and some of the changes that could change how you use your device. We’ll start with a look at the iPhone 5s iOS 12 update’s performance on our device.
