    Usually I wait to install a new version of IOS until the bugs are worked out but I am excited to try the new AR features on my iPhone and the new Files and multitasking on my iPad. Also it has been in beta for quite a while.

    Is IOS 11 stable enough to install straight away on the 19th September on my iPhone 6s/ iPad Pro 10.5 ?

    I would definitely update on the 10.5 inch iPad.

    I’m not sure about the 6s, but performance is great on my 7 plus.

    No. Personally I’d install it on the day the GM was published to devs and beta testers.

    Yep. I’ve had both up and running since last night. Funny how much snappier the GM was versus even the final beta.

    I just updated to GM. So far, so good, but I haven't used it that much yet.

    I figure this gives me plenty of time to roll back if I find issues with iOS 11 that I can't stand.

    Remember that once iOS 11 is officially released to all, you'll have only a few more days when you can downgrade before Apple stops signing iOS 10. Going to the GM now (Back up first!) lets you have a far longer period to evaluate it.

    What are you doing right? I have had no luck getting iOS 11 beta one through 10 to work on my iPhone 7 Plus

    You should be able to just download the iPSW and update in iTunes. Or you can use the developer or public beta profiles.

    Running the public beta on my 12.9" and love it. Everything works fine except youtube seems a bit sluggish.

    I will update my phone, watch and air 2 as soon as possible.

    It's been a train wreck on my 7 plus so far.

    Bluetooth music is wonky. It will skip tracks like crazy when I first connect and play to my Nissan's factory stereo.
    My Garmin just straight up stopped talking with my phone. Notifications were sent, but syncs fail. In an attempt to fix this I uninstalled the app, which is when I discovered...
    The App Store completely died for me. Couldn't update apps, couldn't download apps. Had to Reset all Settings to get things working again.

    So my experience is pretty much terrible so far. Wish I had stayed on 10.3.3 for a good long while, because that was working perfectly. I'll never learn.

    It's actually been pretty good on my 6s Plus. Only complaint is battery life, but that has been issue for me since at least 10.1 so I'm not blaming 11. Performance (speed) is the same as iOS 10, which is really a feat in my eyes.

    The performance on my 6s has been a bummer. I get stutters and delayed home button responses.

    Great on 2nd gen 12.9.

    However, battery life on my 7+is horrendous.

    I mean, 4 hours of use this morning almost drained the battery.

    I’m guessing it will level off with charges, but we’ll see..

    Edit -

    My AirPods and Apple Watch work fine with it though.

    So can i install the iOS 11 GM and if I don't like it or find bugs revert back to iOS 10 without losing any of my media data on my iPad Pro 10.5 inch 512 GB ?

    I would say yes go for it. I have the final build on my SE and it runs fine.

    *IF* you have a full backup of it first yes, preferably made through iTunes. You can't revert to iOS 10 simply by resetting on the device and restoring an iCloud backup. Reverting to iOS 10 involves a full restore done through iTunes. But it can be done.

    If you're using your device in a production environment, if you have Apps that you rely on for your living, make sure they are compatible first - I apologise if that comes across as patronising but a surprising number of people forget to do that. And we're all human anyway, so mistakes come with the territory.

    Updated my non Pro 2017 iPad on Tuesday night to iOS 11 GM and ran with it all day yesterday; stable and performs extremely well once caches have been rebuilt, photo library scanned for new Memories etc. Gave me sufficient confidence to apply the GM to my iPhone 6s last night. Left it charging over night to deal with caches etc. Seems rock solid so far this morning, no issues with carrier or network connectivity, CarPlay fine on the way into work.

    So far I’d say you should be good to go for Day 1 as long as your critical apps are good to go with it.

    Actually, this way you would avoid the installation peak time, as come 19 Sep the whole world will be installing. If you sign up for beta now & install it, you can happily sit and wait for this race to calm down. You can also remove the beta profile on 19 Sep & go on as normal afterwards.

    You can if you back it up first via iTunes and ARCHIVE that backup, as once you start using iOS 11 any iCloud backups it makes will not be compatible with iOS 10.

    So if I update with the beta profile now will it be the GM of iOS 11?

    Yes. Apple beta profile, restart, check for Software Update, install iOS 11, upgrade, remove beta profile to get back on publicly available iOS 11 track.

    Be sure to have plenty of battery in reserve, or better still perform the upgrade whilst charging. Also be prepared for your device to heat up quite a bit post upgrade as caches are rebuilt etc. Performance will also take a short term hit whilst your device does this.

    Yes, exactly.

    I have it installed on both iPhone SE & iPad Air 2 since PB3 and did not have big overheating issues. As far as I understood from the boards here, this happens for users with big photo/video libraries, as there are new file formats for that, etc. I use Google Photos, so no issues with overheating or long iCloud backups/restores.

    50GB+ iCloud Photo Library here, optimised for storage on the device which takes up 6GB on the phone. No overheating but was definitely very warm to the touch for an hour or so after upgrading. During this time the memories section of the photos app had a percentage ‘count up’ whilst it processed my library.

    Makes sense if your photo library was held in Google Photos or similar though.

    make sure you archive the backup you just made. dump the beda profile before restoring.

    I installed the GM on my SE the day  released it.

    If it wasn’t stable enough then apple wouldn’t GM it
