    I had a little lag on my 6s for the first day or so, plus the animations were a little draggy. But it’s been fine the last two days. I always figure it’s due to Siri re-indexing all of the search items in the background after you install an update.

    Is it worth it to load it now to get iOS 11 early or should I just wait until Tuesday?

    Just depends. Do you want it now or not?

    I decided to do it now because download speeds on day one are usually slow because so many devices are trying to download it at the same time. And I’ve been using it on my iPad for a couple of weeks and knew that my apps worked fine with the beta.

    If I install the GM, should I do the encrypted backup to iTunes that many sites recommend with betas? Or is the GM stable enough to do the standard iCloud backup?

    Apple is slowly picking up the bad traits that made me leave Android. Bugs and fragmentation being two of them. This GM build still has glitchy 3D Touch animations and the calculator still lags extremely bad (to test for yourself, press a number then the plus sign repeatedly, i.e. 1+1+1+1....). They are slowly starting to add more devices into the mix, which are going to require different software and have different software features, which is just going to fragment things. It’s not terrible right now, but it’s definitely not the Apple experience that I came to like. Also, the portrait coloring feature that is coming with the iPhone 8 and X. This seems to be a software feature that the iPhone 7 Plus is more than capable of handling, but Apple is choosing to intentionally leave it out for marketing purposes.
    Please understand that everyone is not experiencing an of the glitches you’ve mentioned. The GM is working excellently on my iPhone. Although it’s installed on my iPad Pro, I haven’t been using it as much since installing it. I was on it briefly last night, and it performed without any problems.

    The GM is running very smoothly on my 7Plus as well as my iPad Air. The only thing that I have noticed is the battery life on the iPad is not as good as I remember...but then again it is pretty old...could just be "old age".

    Exactly this.
    iOS 11 has performed without any major hiccups on my iPhone 7 Plus.
    In the first betas there were some moments that it perform below expectations, but that was to be expected since they’re betas.

    The GM however is ready for the public.

    I'm running the GM on my backup 5S. A little laggy but not bad. Battery life is about the same as 10.3.3.

    So today as soon as iOS11 came out, I tried to restore my dads iphone and my iphone, both 6S plus on ios 11. Both were currently running ios 10.3.3. My iphone went through smoothly.
    Dads iphone is showing error "SIM not valid" with the same sim he was using before. His phone has been unlocked since last year.
    I downgraded his iphone to ios 10.3.3. It still shows SIM not supported. I put in an AT&T sim and it turned on. But as soon as I put dads sim (local carrier) in it, it shows the SIM not valid error.
    Anyone else has this problem?

    Never hurts to do both, in case one corrupts. On iTunes the encrypted is always best (as long as you can remember your PW) as it will backup all the data / passwords / CC files, etc.. so it makes using the new phone easier w/o having to reconfigure.

    Yes, GM and today's release = exactly the same. If you don't want to be part of the beta program you can remove the beta profile and next update go back to general releases.

    The general release build number is 15A372, if you have that you're good to go. Go to Settings, General, About, and then look at Version.
