    wOS is a part of iOS, so wOS 4 is a part of iOS 11.

    Apple is no longer signing iOS 10.

    Except for iPhone 6s (because of a screen issue with some replacement screens - that can't upgrade to iOS 11).
    10.3.3 is still available for the 6s crowd (for now).

    Yeah, but it won't work with WatchOS 4. You're gonna have to upgrade (or stick the watch in a drawer until you're happy with iOS 11 and are willing to make the upgrade).

    Edit: Apple never did a build of WatchOS 3 for the S3 (at least not that they released externally). You're stuck with WatchOS 4 and iOS 11 if you want to use them together.

    If your phone is having battery draining issues, set it up as new. iOS 11 has better battery life on both my 7Plus and Air 2 after setting it up as new. On my 8Plus, battery life is great. (Also set up as new).

    Set up as new without a restore? If so, I would check the health of your battery. Sounds more like a hardware issue.
