    Iphone 6S +
    Installed iOS 11.
    Charge % was 92%. I then plugged it it and install iOS 11
    On iOS 11 reboot battery % was down to 72%. Battery % is now 1%.
    Typically I'd still be at about 50% give or take.

    I updated yesterday. Yes first day battery dropped fast and there was some lag. Now it seems fine and os is smooth. Loving new font and battery icon. Definitely seems like battery is worse but every iOS update seems like that. Give it a few days.

    New font + battery life is great! iOS 11 is like a whole new phone, it's magical.

    IP7+, first 30 mins was lag filled. Was heavily reconsidering wiping it.

    Afterward it is pretty smooth, some animation lag once in a while but that was present with ios10.

    So far battery seems like it's normal, I'll spend tomorrow using it and see if I end up at the same % I normally do.

    Update.
    2nd day was a bit better.
    Now a few days later. Seems ok.
    Had some bizarre battery behavior though. battery dropped to 30%, I started charging it, it got up to 52%. I unplugged it as I had to run. Looked a phone a little later, it had dropped to 18% within a short time. Then stopped at 16% for a long time.

    Surprised you only have this problem now.

    I've been having the same issue with 6s+ since a year ago. That's Apple's way of telling you to buy a new iPhone. Of course, you can always go the Android route like I did :)

    Screw me once and expect to have my business again....hmmm, no.

    No 7S or 7S Plus iPhones have ever been released. This poll is a scam!

    Have the battery issues in my 7+ after the update to iOS 11. I used to return home from office with having atleast 35-40%. After the update it's around 10-15% when I get home. The usage has been same.

    Even on my regular 6 plus I didn’t notice any difference.

    7 plus here, battery not so great, and major issues with my screen not functioning/typing randomly. I hope they release an update real soon.

    Oops on the 7S.
    What came before a 7, a 6S.
    What came before a 6, a 5S.
    What came before a 5, a 4S.
    ...
    Perhaps a crafty way of getting around an iPhone 9. That would be a problem in Germany. :)

    I'm about 30% less battery per day versus previous iOS.
