While it’s tempting to update your iPhone or iPad to the latest software Apple has to offer, there may be more issues and headaches than it’s worth being an early adopter of anything, even official OS updates.

Sometimes it’s a catastrophic mistake
It hasn’t happened often, but there have been some iOS updates that have anything but corrupted iPhones and iPads for those who installed them the second update was available.

My advice? Wait a few days, maybe even a week, after the update is available before installing it. That way, it will be time for first or second day issues to appear, and asks Apple to remove the update and replace it with a fixed version or issue a new update with bug fixes.
Not all developers will be ready on launch day
