I updated to this a few weeks ago.

Me, too.  This update is in my iPad and iPhone for a few weeks already. The release was transparent. I installed it and noticed no changes in performance in either device. I'm usually not overly curious why Apple offers updates for their mobile operating systems. I see 'em show up in the notification and I install them fairly soon, but not same day.

I installed it when it was released, too.   It was a smooth download/installation, no problems.

Thanks for posting the heads up, @Mindy D, for those who might not have noticed the new update.😊

Yep, installed it when it came and didn't notice glitches.  Nothing appeared to change.

Thanks for posting Mindy as I held off updating my iPads also. I did two iPads with the update yesterday and see no problem with either of them.

I always hold off a month to see if they had to do another update due to problems. I never have had any problems doing any of the Apple updates on their products.

I am waiting to upgrade my iPads until after the Apple Event on the 20th. Then wait a month to see if they have any problems.
I always have someone wanting to buy the Apple products I have. That is if I don't give to a family member. They even have a trade in on the Apple site also. My 2018 iPads were with $205.00 on their trade in site.

Have a good weekend everyone and stay safe.

@MKR NY,  Just a note about the new products...  some states have a few days when sales taxes aren't charged on electronics (and other things) -- usually called "tax-free weekend" or "sales tax holiday" or something like that.   It can be a good savings if the timing is right.

Enjoy your new purchases!

Thanks for the good wishes!   Be safe and well, everyone.❤️
