Should I update my iphone 7 to 10.14 now before 10.15 comes out?

I've hesitated to upgrade my iP7 - It's on iOS 12 now. It's capable of 10.15 so once it comes out, 10.14 will no longer be an option.

What does the forum think?

You still have about three months to decide.

The risk of moving to iOS14 is it will become very slow. Check out other experiences.

I like iOS14 so far, but I'm using new hardware.

I honestly doubt iOS15 is really going to be slower than iOS14 however.

I'm looking for others' experiences - are you using an iP7 with iOS 14?

Don't go to 14.6 - there are some major battery issues with it

If there are battery issues they haven't shown up yet on my old 7 but then I live on my iMac not the phone or pad.

Ditto.
Happy to see that 14.6 will run on it as well!

ok, this is good to know - I suppose there should be a .1 update at some point. I can wait.

iPhone 7 on 14.4.2 running well.

Was going to look up 14.6 issues before updating. Now DEFINITELY going to look them up and/or not update.

They somehow managed to make Siri even worse in OS 14.5.

Trying to make calls with it, I almost always get "did you mean..." back instead of it placing the call, and if there's a syllable in the contact-name or nickname that even vaguely approaches the sound of a familial relationship like "mom" or "dad" it asks me if that person is my mom or dad, and if I say "no" then instead of placing the call it just stops there.

The Siri demos for OS 15 are impressive - but in a good way. I concur that Siri even on an iPhone 12 is somehow less functional than a couple years ago. Very strange.
