Of course you should update. No, it won't crash anything. – duci9y Mar 16 '13 at 6:57
Unfortunately there is no easy way to answer this question. While it is safe to assume that Apple tries to ensure stable upgrade procedures there always is the slight chance that your phone may crash during the upgrade due to specific issues/software constellations with your specific phone. – patrix Mar 16 '13 at 9:52
I have been running iOS since 2.0 and have updated to every single new revision. I have never had any issues related to instability as a result. – user10355 Mar 16 '13 at 10:56
Awesome then! :) – Ivan Ivković Mar 16 '13 at 15:45

If you're not jailbroken, it is perfectly safe to upgrade. If anything, 6.1.2 will crash less than 6.1 because of the bug fixes.
