    This Signal bar on iOS 11 has changed, from the famous circle signal bar back to the original signal bar. What do you think? YAY or NAY?

    For the short time I had iOS 11 (beta 1) on my iPhone it didn't really bother me, but a couple of my wallpapers with designs in the status bar did fit better.

    I don’t mind the looks of the signal indicators. I like it either way.

    I prefer dots by far.

    Bars give it an Android look..

    Meh, doesn't really matter to me. 😃 As long as I can easily see how strong my signal is, I'm happy. Bars, Dots or even a dBm number would be fine. I think keeping the dots would be better though. Makes it feel more IOS and less like Android.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Android and iOS keep slowly resembling each other. Both companies can learn from each other. An answer to your question though is that I really care not what my signal status looks like. As long as I understand what I am looking at...

    I don't mind the bars, but I don't like how it's only 4 bars now. Kind of confusing since I'm so used to having 5 bars/dots

    Agreed, it's the number of marks that'll be somewhat of a pain to get used to, not their shape. Fortunately I can continue to have my iPhone show dBm numbers (right? they aren't taking that away, are they?) but it doesn't appear to be possible on the iPad. No dialer function even though it's cellular and has its own phone number.

    I use the numeric value, but the bars or the dots are ok with me.

    Has anyone been able to change the signal bars to dB via Field Test Mode in iOS 11?

    Sadly, they did take this feature out . In beta 1, dBm isn't in field test anymore, so you can't use the glitch to make your iPhone show dBm anymore. Bummer, because I used this feature a lot!

    The numeric field test is not an Apple feature. Your carrier provides that. If it no longer works, it could be Apple has blocked it either intentionally or unintentionally. Or the carrier no longer offers it.

    Aw man. Hopefully this doesn't stick.
