    I'm wondering whether it's safe to jump back in to the beta pool. I tried running the first public beta of iOS 11 on my 10.5 iPad but battery life was alarming.

    For anyone running the latest beta on their 10.5", is battery life still an issue? (By this I mean, is it comparable now to battery life on the 10.5 with iOS 10--which, in my experience, is about 10% per hour of moderate use?)

    (About to take a 3 week trip to Europe, wondering if I should bring a 13" MBP along with iPad; but I'd take the iPad alone if I knew I could rely on iOS 11...)

    I think it’s pretty good on the latest beta. I noticed some accelerated battery wear on the first beta but haven’t since. I’m getting about an hour of battery life for every 10%

    Not really.

    On 10.3.2 avg battery life is like 15 hrs.

    On iOS 11 Beta 4 it is more like 9 hrs.
