  1. Hello Sir,

    great site that you have there, will subscribe to your push news ..

    Unfortunately, I cannot share the euphoria for IOS 12. I have already played all previous updates (up to 12.1) on my iPhone 8 and there is no improvement.

    With normal use, the mobile phone freezes completely with different apps (monkey handles required for RESET)
    When filming videos with a third-party APP, suddenly there is a freeze, streaky screen, in all colors, the app goes out, and takes the phone with it> total crash. Then start up with 3 attempts of the system.

    I have already restored the mobile phone 4x via iTunes, partially deleted apps completely, then it got a little better, but the IOS 12 is still very unstable and unpredictable ...

    I've never seen anything like it in 10 years of iPhone use and IOS updates ... Worst IOS EVER ...

    It can't be the iPhone itself, after all, it ran like clockwork under IOS 11.4 ...!

    At the moment I'm really annoyed, especially since the system errors also affect normal phone calls - not often, but they do happen.

    1. Hello Thomas! Thanks! : D Because of iOS 12: That doesn't sound so great ... Have you ever contacted Apple Support? Maybe they can run a diagnosis? Somehow it doesn't just sound like iOS 12 problems ... even if you say that it ran without problems under 11.4 ... but maybe a hardware error occurred promptly and you think it is iOS 12 ... It would be just an idea from me, but it can too be that i'm wrong. LG!
