Should I download iOS 12?
iOS 12 does seem to be a pretty stable new release that may be worth taking on board earlier than you might normally take on such an upgrade.
As usual though, I recommend waiting a week or so to allow others to find the inevitable 'teething' problems and for the release of 12.0.1 with any fixes.
I installed iOS 12 five days ago, and so far have had no problems with it - although there have been a few reports of connectivity issues. Here is an article that describes these issues:
If you too are ready to try out this latest/greatest iOS from Apple, the upgrade can be downloaded and installed from Settings -> General -> Software Update.
I found that it took 45-60 mins to download and install to my iPhone X (using my fast internet connection), so make sure you have enough time available before starting the process, and make sure the device is plugged in to power.
As ALWAYS, please ensure you have a backup of your device before installing such an upgrade, as there is always the chance that the upgrade could fail and you need to have a backup as an insurance policy.
When you upgrade your iPad, here's how to find your Control Centre
Just be aware that, when you upgrade your iPad to iOS 12, you will need to use a different gesture to get to your Control Panel. Instead of swiping up from the bottom of the screen, you will swipe down from the top right of the screen.
