    I'm super pumped about putting the new OS on my devices Tuesday - mainly my iPP.

    Anyone else? What changes are you most excited about?

    My 2nd gen 12.9 is ready. I am looking forward to a better notes app and the dock on the bottom. I think it will be much easier to move apps and content around.

    I'm stoked. I've got the 10.5" and the added productivity will be nice. I've got an iPhone 7+ so I'm actually more excited about iOS 11 on my iPad and the camera updates for the 7+ than any of the phones this year.

    i agree with you. No new phones for me this year. 7 plus and iPad 12.9 pro and I'm set for a couple of years.

    Apple fixes first release problems quickly, but there is some risk being the first. If 32 bit apps no longer work will that create some surprises for apps that you rely on?

    Settings/General/About/Applications will list apps that won't work.

    It is amazing. The speed and screen are phenomenal. The slim bezels give it a nice updated look to an already great looking device!

    As far as apps not working post iOS 11, The main non Apple app I use on a regular basis is Notability. I use it nearly exclusively for school etc. Is Notability 32 or 64 bit? Apologize for the newbie question.

    If it is 32Bit, you should get a warning on startup, that the developer needs to update the application. I have an app or two like that, which will soon be gone(no biggie as I rarely use them anymore)

    My situation is this:

    I am REALLY jealous of my wife because she is getting an iPhone 8 next week and I won't have my iPhone X for quite a while yet. I'm not upgrading my Apple Watch or Apple TV this year either. So all I have to be excited about for next week as far as new goodies is iOS 11. I have resisted running the beta, but I can't wait to load it up on my 10.5" iPad Pro. I had almost forgotten how much I was looking forward to it during all the new iPhone hubbub, and then remembered that the new iPads don't truly fulfill their WWDC promises until this upgrade. It will be a good week for iPad owners too.

    Hard to argue that IOS 11 was an IPAD heavy release, should be game changing. I just bought the 12.9 pro to replace my years old MacBook Pro. I think for what I do, work and "play". The 12.9 running IOS will be my laptop moving forward.

    Same. This has been the case for me for the last couple of years.

    Yes, I've loved my 12.9" iPad Pro on iOS10 since I bought it a few months back, but seeing the iOS11 features were what made me want to buy one in the first place. Really excited for the update.

    I don't plan on updating. I have some old legacy 32 bit IOS apps that I don't want to lose.

    First time in several years I did not HAVE TO install the betas for work. So I didn't. I almost loaded the gold master, but figured at this point, why bother. So now I'm super excited to update on Tuesday. iPad first, then phone. It's really much more fun this way. It will make Tuesday afternoon move quickly, too!

    I stopped installing betas a couple of years ago. It's super fun seeing the new stuff early, but I completely wiped all my Apple Watch badges one year because I screwed up an install, so now I'm really paranoid about it. Tuesday is going to be super cool though. All kinds of new stuff to look forward to.

    I purposefully avoided all the betas JUST so the public release would be my first experience with it and I could be excited about a new os that works perfectly.

    I'm gonna go iPad first since it's the biggest update, the iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple TV. I mean really...for all the other non iPad updates I could even be patient and wait s couple days if the servers are getting slammed. Just gimme my iPad update!

    Ehh I wouldn't expect perfection until next July when iOS 11.3.1 is released ;)

    Perfection in so far as "not as many bugs as the betas". Let's just say that. I remember when I updated one year and my phone service stopped working. That was fun

    I downloaded the GM version. When the actual iOS 11 version comes out, will I simply able to update it to that? Do I have to get out of the beta program?

    They're the same thing. You can't update to what you already have installed.

    As eager as I am to see iOS 11 on my 12.9 Pro, I need to wait to see which of the apps that I use will be affected.

    I didn't really think about apps not being able to be used with it. I don't have a lot that I think will be affected, but I do use Notability a good bit. Did I see above that it will be okay?

    I think most of my others will be okay.

    I am excited because this is the first year since I've been using iPhone that I haven't upgraded my phone on launch day. I actually ordered an 8+ then cancelled the order because I have a 7+ and realized I just didn't really need to make the change. I'm thinking the X isn't gonna be for me, so I'm pumped about all the new features on my iPad (I did upgrade to the 2nd generation iPP 12.9 earlier this year) and iPhone.
