7 Things to Know About the iPhone SE iOS 12.0.1 Update is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The iPhone SE iOS 12.0.1 update comes with some important patches and fixes, but it’s causing problems for some iPhone SE owners. If you’re thinking about moving your device to Apple’s new operating system, you’ll want to take your time.

It took awhile but Apple’s finally released the first iOS 12 bug fix update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. iOS 12.0.1 is much smaller than iOS 12.0, but the point update comes with some important bug fixes and security patches for potential exploits.

Most iPhone SE users will eventually want to upgrade to iOS 12.0.1, but others might want to take a rain check. iOS 12.0.1 is causing problems for some iPhone SE users and we expect the list of issues to grow as more people decide to download and install the new update.

We’ve been using the iPhone SE iOS 12.0.1 update for a short time and performance has mirrored what we saw on the previous version of iOS 12.

We haven’t run into any significant problems, but those looking to upgrade should be careful because iOS 12.0.1 is causing problems for some users. This is important to note because it could be weeks before we see additional bug fixes from Apple’s end.

It’s also important because once you move your iPhone SE to the iOS 12.0.1 update you can only move it back to iOS 11.4.1 or iOS 12.0 for a short time. There’s no moving back to anything older than iOS 11.4.1.

In this guide we’ll take you through these problems and give you our impressions of the iOS 12.0.1 update’s performance on our iPhone SE.

Our guide will also walk you through some essential tips, what you need to know if you want to jailbreak your iPhone SE, and what you can expect from Apple in the weeks ahead.

iPhone SE iOS 12.0.1 Impressions & Performance

If you're moving your iPhone SE from 12.0 to iOS 12.0.1 you can expect a quick download and installation. 

If you're moving your iPhone SE from an older version of iOS like iOS 11.4.1, you can expect your download and installation to take a little bit longer. That's because the features and fixes from updates you skipped are baked into iOS 12.0.1. 

For more on the iOS 12.0.1 download time and installation, please take a look at our guide. It'll walk you through it all. 

As for iOS 12.0.1's performance, it's about the same as iOS 12.0. That's a good thing. 

Animations and transitions are crisp, apps still open up faster than they did on iOS 11, and we haven't stumbled into any lag when pulling up Control Center or pulling down our Notifications. We noticed occasional lag in these areas on iOS 11. 

We haven't stumbled into any weird battery drain during our short time with iOS 12.0.1 though we'll keep an eye out for issues as we push away from the release date. 

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are both working normally and we haven't encountered any major problems with our core applications. If you are noticing problems with apps you'll want to download the latest version. Developers are still rolling out iOS 12 support updates.

As of right now, iOS 12.0.1 is performing well on our iPhone SE and we recommend it to most users. If you're feeling leery, take a look at the best reasons to and not to install iOS 12.0.1 right now
