    What are your thoughts about iOS 11 at the moment, for iPhone and iPad?

    Loving it on my iPad Pro. Still getting used to the changes on the iPhone. But I haven’t been able to put either down since putting the beta on both devices🤦🏾*♀️

    I can only speak for iPhone, but I have to say that the sluggishness is mostly gone. It’s stable, safe from one respring there have been no crashes, no oddities and all my apps are working.
    Unlike the early betas of iOS 9, the betas of iOS 10 and now iOS 11 have proven to be suitable for daily drivers.

    The only thing that needs work is battery life, but I’m sure that will be resolved pretty quick.

    All in all, it’s a good and stable build.

    It’s pretty stable for a first beta. I agree that the iPad updates are better, as is the battery life. I take my iPad off the charger every morning and even 12 hours later off the charger it’s still at 100%. My iPhone on the other hand is a different story. Battery drains quicker than iOS 10.3.

    I'm liking it so far on the iPhone. I have yet to try it on my iPP. I've downgraded back to iOS 10 for the time being.

    The iPad changes in iOS 11 are awesome. They’ll be even better once the kinks are worked out. I feel like Apple is FINALLY taking advantage of the iPad’s screen real estate. It’s a departure from what we’re used to but it’s still very familiar at the same time.

    The iPhone upgrades are rather incremental. A few changes but morning earth shattering. I actually reverted back to iOS 10.3.2 until I realized that my Apple Watch, which I upgraded to watchOS 4, would no longer pair. Needless to say, I’m back on iOS 11 on my iPhone as well.

    I’m digging it on my iPad Air 2. I just put watchOS 4 on last night but I love the kaleidoscope face!

    With my 7+ I’ve had some battery gankiness but other than that it’s been solid.

    Working well for me, battery life and applications have not seen any issues.

    It’s stable for a beta. There are variable effects as to which apps don’t open for people specifically, what bugs show up for which people, and the battery drains quicker on iOS 11 beta 1 than it does on the official 10.3 build, or the current 10.3 beta. It is by no means ready for public use at all. It’s still sluggish, the sluggishness gets a little better after a while but things still hang.

    It was clunky until it was done indexing, on my iPhone. I helped it by clearing the RAM and it did wonders
    Beside the signal bars “a la Android”, I REALLY love that Beta. I also installed it on my iPad Mini 2 and it runs fantastic! I dig the new tweaks and features they implemented

    Good that it is pretty stable for a beta 1. Will jump in on my iPad once the public beta hits. Really interested to see the new IOS on the iPad pro. Will sit out my iPhone 7 though.

    So far its very stable. It is a bit slow at times, but that is to be expected for a beta, especially an early one. New control center and notification centers are nice, and the new smart invert looks to be a good feature as well, though will need some work.

    I’ve had one glitch with the screen brightness, and the battery life has falter slightly, but I can still go an entire day on a single charge. Other than that, iOS 11 is still stable on my iPhone 7 Plus. My apps still work, no connectivity problems, CarPlay & Bluetooth work without a problem and I’m looking forward to doing a clean install this weekend.

    What I dislike about iOS 11 is the lock screen notification look. I don’t want to see my lock screen wallpaper every time I swipe down to see my notifications.

    I’m pretty sure it’s a bug. If not, I hope they will go back to the it was on iOS 10.

    I think it’s a bug, too - one I hope is squashed very soon...

    Pretty stable but some shortcuts @control center don’t work as Bluetooth, Wifi sometimes.

    I was connected to a BT speaker and when I tapped the Bluetooth toggle in Control Center it disconnected. It sure doesn’t work the way it was on iOS 10. We will see what the next Beta makes of it.

    I thought it was pretty clear from the keynote that the notifications shade is now merged with the lockscreen, with the caveat that you can look at the lockscreen with the phone actually unlocked. Well, you can do that now on iOS 10 if you unlock with Touch ID without pressing the home button.

    I'm enjoying it, with a few nitpicks:
    • Battery isn't great
    • Control Center is cluttered and I can't find the flashlight as easily as before
    • Trying to figure out how to launch an app from a notification like I did before (user error)
    • Getting used to the new app tray in messages


    I'm putting watchOS 4 on my watch now... see how that works.

    I’m NOT a fan of not being able to launch an app directly from a lock screen notification. Hopefully they bring it back. The only workaround I’ve found is to launch from Notification Center but that’s not nearly as convenient.
