    I purchased the 7 Plus on Monday. I originally was going to wait to get the 8 Plus but I decided to get the 7 Plus since the battery is smaller in the 8 Plus than the 7 Plus. I got the Jet Black 128 GB on AT&T Next Every Year.

    Will the iPhone 7 Plus handle all of the iOS 11 Augmented Reality features? Also, will the 7 Plus get all of the iOS 11 features? Obviously it won't be able to handle the features that are specific to the 8, 8 Plus, and X.

    @KingsBuick, according to Apple and various other tech sites the ARKit will work just dandy with the 7 Plus, and various other models without having to buy additional hardware. Even the little SE is going to be able to take advantage of it.

    I think the 7 Plus will handle the AR functions beautifully, but that's a personal opinion as I've owned a 7 Plus for a year now. I can't wait to see it in action!

    Also, I've been test driving iOS 11 Beta since Beta 5 and so far my 7 Plus is handling it like a champ, and yes, it is currently running all the iOS 11 features.

    Thank you for the response. I hope that the 7 Plus will not have any problems on iOS 11. So far it is the best iPhone I have ever owned (previously I've had the 4S,5,5s,6s,7 and now the 7 Plus)!

    The 7 Plus works amazing with iOS 11.

    Thanks for the response. This is my first phablet iPhone but so far it's really easy to use.

    I’m not quite sure.. but if I’m not mistaken, it should work with the 7 too.

    I installed the GM iOS 11 a couple days ago. It was rather buggy unfortunately. I performed a hard reset and that seemed to clear some things. Now the only time I notice a hiccup or glitch is when taking a screenshot and sending it via the quick icon in the bottom corner of the screen. There will be a noticeable delay in the time it takes to bring up the text message box. It's not all the time but's frequent enough to be an annoyance.

    I'm wondering if I'll need to do another hard reset and just start fresh. I restored my data after the last hard reset I performed.

    11.0.2 has the battery back to normal?

    Did you do a factory restore as well?

    Beta testers are reporting better life in the newest beta release. Battery relief should be well on its way!

    Since when is battery life in the first 24 hours of any update taken serious.

    While I do hope it’s true, I’m careful in making such statements.

    I am also careful. But 12 minutes screen on top before dropping from 76% to 75% right after install is indeed something to report. Naturally more testing is in order, but that is significant already.
