    ...so i need a few reasons of why should i upgrade to 11 or 10. Im using an iPhone6S+, is it really worth the upgrade or should i wait for a few bugs to be fixed, or should i just stay on 9? (im quite happy with it to be frank)

    The 6s can handle iOS 11 quite well IMO.

    You can’t go to 10 at this point. It is 11.1 or nothing.

    You can only install software Apple digitally signs. Apple is no longer signing iOS 10 for 6s Plus, only regular 6s.

    I would've recommended upgrading to iOS 10 since it was faster than iOS 9 for 6s, iOS 11 is similar in speed.

    iOS 11.1 runs great on my 6s Plus.

    If you want to upgrade then do so, it’s worth it for security updates.

    Not true, 11.0.1, 11.0.2 and 11.0.3 are also available as well as iOS 11.2 beta.

    If i continue not to upgrade, is it possible that one day iOS14 or more will come out and i will not be able to make the upgrade due to old iPhone specs and that way i will be stuck with iOS9?

    You can't be stuck on anything that isn't the latest version for the device. For example, any iPhone 5 can install 10.3.3 since iOS 10 is the last version for iPhone 5.

    Eventually, you might get forced in to updating your iPhone to latest iOS.

    Plus app developers will stop supporting iOS 9 and iOS 10. So if you want latest app updates, you’ll have to install ios11.

    It’s not that bad. Apple is doing a pretty good job addressing issues and sending out new updates.

    I suggest looking up iOS 10 and 11 features to see if there's anything you might like. Different people care about different things so it's hard to go into detail.

    iOS 11 is not even close to the mess that some are making it out to be. 11.2 beta 1 is pretty much perfect IMO. I say go with the upgrade.

    Bugs, slowdowns on older devices compared to 10.3.3 and decreased battery life.

    Maybe on an iPhone 8. Not so much on a 6. I'm sticking with 10.3.3 for a long time until Apple can show that they have on par performance in iOS 11.

    I wouldn't update to iOS 11, if it wasn't for watchOS 4

    You missed your chance to get 10. It ran great on my 6s (and was faster and smoother than 9 ever was right from the start). 11 is about the same as 10, but with worse battery life...

    IMO staying behind 1 ios iteration is not that bad (i stayed most of this year on ios9 on my 6s) however staying 2 ios iterations behind would be too much for me...security improvements, new file system, etc...

    Read the forums. We have dozen topics and hundreds of pages of good and the bad.

    Well with iOS 10 my 6s still had 50-60% at the end of a typical work day (after coming off the charger in the morning), now it struggles to make it through the day without a top up. It's also the most commonly reported issue with iOS 11...

    I’d upgrade for the security patches alone. iOS 9 has some major security holes.
