    If battery life is not your biggest concern, go for it. All of my 150+ apps are working and there are no cringeworthy bugs.

    It’s pretty stable for a first developer beta. It’s pretty skittish, it likes to hang for a second, and there are some apps that don’t load for people. Battery life isn’t the greatest. I’m using it on my daily driver but I’m ok dealing with the bugs.

    Going into an early beta, there will be issues. If you have to ask this question then it's probably not for you. Betas are to get the bugs worked out. Not to worry if it's stable. Remember there will be 3 more months of betas so there are a lot of issues to iron out.

    Not good enough IMO. Battery life gets drained very very quickly.

    I wouldn't carry my single phone with a beta firmware but I appreciate your feedback, thanks!

    There was a YouTube video done by EverythingApplePro and he showed the performance difference between IOS 10 and the IOS 11 beta. The boot up times were significantly slower on IOS 11 and the gap widened even more as you moved to older generation iPhones.

    I personally wouldn't load beta software, especially when it's not even a public beta on my main device. If it's a secondary device then absolutely go for it! 😃 Playing around with all the new features and finding all the bugs is great fun.

    First time I’ve loaded a beta 1. Usually I was it for 3 or 4. That being said I’m very surprised on how stable. Battery life isn’t has good but still nothing significantly that’s makes me revert back to iOS 10.

    It's on my daily driver. Battery life has taken a hit but on par with what it would be if it was a new phone. I find that my battery life decreases faster because I'm using it more, finding new things. On the days where I use the device normally I end the day with around 25% left. That's maybe 10% less than what I'd have on 10.3.x public beta.

    Some small glitches for me, but nothing that makes my devices unusable.

    Working fine on my 6S Plus and iPad Pro!

    It’s good enough as a daily driver for me. I’d like Apple to reduce the delay between pressing an app and the app actually launching but other than that, I’ve had 0 issues

    Yes. And the load times in AppStore are also taking longer than usual.

    I hope to see beta 2 this Monday.

    If Beta 2 fixes my only gripe I’ll be a happy camper.

    I just finished restoring my iPhone 7 Plus as new with iOS 11 and it’s running better than it did when I initially upgraded OTA. With that in mind, OP, I was already using it as a daily driver on my primary device and i know it’s stable enough to continue doing so n

    Typically beta 2 on the yearly major revision is 3 weeks. Then it goes every 2 weeks after that. I'm just hoping they do it after 2 weeks this year.

    I think the reason for that is WWDC taking a lot of engineers away for that first week after initial beta.

    Oh I agree. That would be nice to have a beta quick. But then a beta too quick won't fix much. So patience we need to have.

    Does 'reset all settings' helps in performance and battery life?

    Has anyone else experienced that iCloud mail doesn’t notify on lockscreen or on the watch? Push works, but I just get a badge notifcation on the Mail icon. Nothing else, no sound, no vibration and nothing on the lock screen. This is not my primary iCloud mail account, but it is the one that I use. I tried to downgrade to iOS 10.3.2, end everything works. Then I upgraded to iOS 11 beta 1 again, and the notification stopped working again. I have then downgraded once more to iOS 10, where it works.

    I have an Exchange mail and gmail account also. Both of them work fine on iOS 11, it’s only the iCloud account which doesn’t work.

    I haven’t but I’m not using the stock Mail app. Have you submitted a bug report to Apple?

    I have it on my daily driver, and if you can deal with battery drain that is higher than it was on 10.3.x, then go for it. There are some quirks but overall it's good enough as long as you understand that there will be quirks that need to be worked out.

    Go to Settings -> Notifications -> Mail -> iCloud, and then enable the toggle next to “Show on Cover Sheet”. That’ll do the trick for you.

    No, that does not help. It was on. Tried to toggle off and on again, but still not notification from iCloud mail.
