Should you upgrade?
If you don’t care about jailbreaking, I highly recommend you update as soon as possible. This update brings a lot of new features.
If you want a jailbreak, the answer is, of course, no. Apple will stop signing iOS 11.2-11.2.2 any moment now. Therefore, you should downgrade via iTunes while you still have time.
This will also likely be the last firmware update for iPhone 5s and other A7 devices. Apple will no longer support these devices in future builds due to increasing requirements.
