Does anyone reccomend updating the iPhone 6 to iOS 11.0.2 or 11.1 Beta 2?

    I'm still on 10.3.3 and its feeling pretty old? Should I update or will it make the phone really sluggish performance-wise?

    In my experience, don't leave 10.3.3. I'm on a 6 plus.

    I upgraded to 11 with a fresh install and for weeks could not get the same battery life or UI smoothness I could with 10. I rolled back and will stay here until there are more optimizations, if any.

    11.0.3 comes out on Wednesday, you might want to wait and read impressions on that actually. Could be even better!

    I updated my iP6, and while I do like iOS 11 and while it does run OK on the handset, battery life has been murdered. I can actually watch the battery meter drain right before my eyes. Stay on 10, my friend, stay on 10.

    Different people have had different experiences, but iOS 11 so far has been the first time I have faced battery issues on the iPhone 7+ that were noticeable. I ran through 60% watching YouTube in like 1.5 Hrs yesterday, never happened before. Moved to 11.1 today to see if things improve.

    Unfortunately, in order to run Watch OS 4, one needs to have iOS 11.

    I find 11.1 B2 to be a rockstar. Great battery life and no crashes for me.

    Also, if you haven't heard yet, 11.1 beta 3 is out (for developers thus far, PB later today)! Reports coming in that 3D Touch animation stutter is fixed, and home button delay is minimized.

    As others have noted, battery life has cratered ... I've never had battery issues with my 6+ until I upgraded to 11.0.3. I'll roll back and wait a while longer.

    Absolutely not! iOS 11 made my iPhone 6 crawl and I downgraded to iOS 10 just in time.
