Should you update?
Apple will unveil the Apple Card this summer and, of course, it wants its service to be compatible with all iOS devices.
Limiting new services like Arcade and TV+ only to modern iOS 13-compatible devices would put a massive dent in Apple’s bottom line.
So, barring a few issues, iOS 12.4 is worth an upgrade if you wish to use Apple Card somewhere down the road.
