Thinking of a new iPhone? You may want to try iOS 12 first

While most of the attention of this week's Apple event is on the company's latest iPhones, those thinking of an upgrade have a cheaper, simpler option they may want to try first: iOS 12.

Unlike prior iOS updates which stressed new features like multitasking, Control Center and Siri, iOS 12 is placing the focus on performance, particularly on speeding up older devices.

Is it worth it? Available for free on Monday, we put the latest beta version of the software on an older iPhone 6 and compared it to another iPhone 6 running iOS 11.4.1 earlier this week to find out.
