    In terms of version and release control, all maintenance deserves sub-version releases only.  iOS 12? What’s the great features giving it the honour for an integer increment? 
    What about iOS 11.2.6, 11.2.7...
    then iOS 11.3.1, 11.3.2 etc.
    once I see iOS 11.9.9, I may be glad to see iOS 12.0.  Make sense?
