    Back on 10.3.3 on my phone. I need solid battery life and I get that there. I’ll stay there until GM. Just tired of the horrible battery and keep on downgrading. Not too worried about battery life on my 10.5 pro so I’ll stay on beta for that. I know betas you can expect bad battery but I don’t ever recall getting bad battery this late in the beta game. Reasons like this makes me happy I didn’t install the watch beta or I’d be stuck.

    Battery life on 11 is way better than on official iOS 10. What device do you have?

    I completely disagree. 7 plus. I can easily make it a day on 10.3.3. On 11 beta 7, I was dead by 5 pm. No additional usage than normal.

    Is it really stable enough for use on your daily driver?
    It is pretty good now. It's been a bit of a rocky road this time but the latest is solid. We're getting close to official release so I'd be surprised if there were any real issues moving forward but it is still in beta.

    I just installed the public beta on my secondary iPhone which I don't use as my daily driver. I'm tempted to install the developer beta on it. Not sure if I should install either on my iPhone 7+

    There's no difference between the two, just might get the dev beta a bit before public but that window is closing now that the beta is getting more stable.

    Which would you recommend for a daily driver?

    They’re both the same but public beta you at least have the slight delay from dev to see what everyone is complaining about

    Running dev beta 7 on my SE and my battery life is at least as good as it was on 10.3.3 and I feel the same about dev beta 7 on my iPad Pro 10.5 Could not be more happy

    They’re both the same. This beta is stable so far and it does feel like Golden Master. I’m sure we’re not too far from GM.

    My battery was solid on beta 3-5. Then went to complete crap with beta 6. I follow a lot of tech people on Twitter. They are saying battery is awful too. So at least I know it’s not just me. Back on 10.3.3 and battery is back to being awesome. So who knows.

    Although I installed this beta on my second device which I don't use much, I've already decided to go back to iOS 10. I have no idea what my battery life was because I don't ever obsess over things like that. There were little quirks and such that I come to expect from a beta when 3rd party apps aren't updated to be compatible with it. I got to see whatever is new firsthand so I know what to expect come Fall. Overall, pretty cool.

    I only obsess over battery if it doesn’t get me through the day. And for the first time since having a 6 plus, 6s plus, and 7 plus I can’t make it through the day on a single charge. And I’m coming up well short of making it through the day. I am back on 10.3.3 and battery life has significantly increased for me. I guess having some new features just isn’t worth the cost of battery life. Will Apple get it right? Yes they will. They just aren’t there yet. But they will get there eventually.

    I don't obsess over battery either but know that by noon if I'm down to 30% it's bad lol My experience isn't very good on battery on this one but I'm also using a 6s that I got nearly 2 years ago (though the battery was replaced earlier this year in the recall program)

    I’ve been on the beta for almost two days now. It’s still smooth, not a single crash or random restart.

    Yeah, 3rd party app issues do bug me a bit. I currently have 3 apps that are non-functional due to the changes(2 apps from QNAP are missing a title bar so the save/cancel buttons don't work and Calendar 5 from Readdle does see any of my calendars except Google).

    It's the beta. My 7 plus was dropping so fast. And the battery is only 4 months old because its one of the new red models. I estimated to get about 30-40 less battery life on beta 7 than I do on 10.3.3. No joke.
