    Hey all /

    I’ve been on 11.1 for a few days now. My 8+ is so. freaking. laggy. Swiping up notifications lags. The keyboard lags like crazy. I get frame rate stutters in games.

    In addition, my phones been getting hotter than before, and while on betas 1-4 I was making it all day and then some, I’m having to now charge around 6pm.

    Anyone else? I really don’t want to set up as a new phone. :(

    Lag has been the norm for iOS users on iOS 11. Despite 10 betas, public release, 3 .0 updates, 5 .1 betas and public release, it's only just getting somewhere near what should be acceptable for anything being release to the paying public. Trouble is if you're on iOS you're so used to it by now many don't even notice - as proven by a vocal minority on here claiming it doesn't even exist.

    We shouldn't be accepting it but iOS lag is just another thing we've become desensitised too!

    It’s actually supposed to improve animations and performance, at least that’s my experience on the 7 plus

    I have had the 8 plus for a month. After having the note 8. It is not just you. It is laggy. Games specifically like subway surfer drop frames. I can’t have more than two apps open without having to close them. Otherwise the phone slows down. Battery life hasn’t been that great either.

    This is with iOS 11.1 in particular?

    Not a single issue on my 8Plus or even Air 2 for that matter. Sounds like you have a bad install. Time to restore. I get a good 8-10’hours if usage and 18 hours of standby on my 8Plus and that includes a lot of Pokémon Go which is a battery killer.

    This thread is about a user experiencing lag. You said it is interesting that another thread was describing a lagfree experience.

    How does that help with this thread? What does that have to do with problems of lag? Are you implying one user is "holding it wrong" or that the lag doesn't exist?

    I was just saying it isn't surprising that both experiences exist because it is a lottery on what you get.

    Oh come on. Tim Cook is the one coding right? :rolleyes:

    Posting to show how experience seems to differ and by quite a bit for different people, when it comes to lag and iOS 11.1 (which is the topic of the thread).

    Not sure how Tim Cook relates to what you implied there or how it relates to lag.

    But furthermore, you seem to have been talking quite a bit that there can't really be a difference given that Apple controls hardware and software, yet now it seems that you are saying that it's not surprising that differences exist.

    Actually, friend, I saw that thread and had a completely opposite experience. Thus, I started a new one.

    Hmm, bummer. I would love to do a reinstall, but I hate losing all of my texts and iMessages :(

    Right after updating both my 7+ and Air 2 I noticed a performance improvement (for example, opening mail, switching apps, UI response)

    I've seen the same on my iPad Air, after upgrading from 10.3.3 to 11.0.1: there's a definite delay before every function is executed. I'm on the iPad all day, so this performance hit is very noticeable – and annoying. Maybe iOS 11 is optimized for later models? It's for that reason that, in going on 30 years of Macintosh use, I've never installed the very last OS the computer was capable of running: capable doesn't necessarily equal efficient or fast. Just as I wouldn't drive a car at its maximum top possible speed. I figured it wouldn't be a problem yet since the iPad Air is not the very oldest model that's okayed for iOS 11; but maybe it is? I was kind of hoping that v.11.1 would correct this, but maybe not? Anybody else with an Air showing this behavior?

    No but he doesnt run a tight ship. Clearly.

    More worried about bottom line than refined products, when refined products are still important

    He allows sloppy Call of Duty type iOS releases to happen, because they still sell (not iOS of course, but devices running on iOS)

    -part of the problem

    Oddly enough, my 7+ feels like a brand new phone after 11.1 and I was having quite a few issues with the earlier version of iOS 11.

    Back up your iphone, preferably from itunes since it will be much faster restoring later, reset it to factory settings, do any upgrades you need to, and after that choose restore from backup from itunes. It will put back everything you had before, including messages, photos etc, but if everything goes well, it will make your phone to operate normally. I did this when i upgraded to ios 11, went from dreadful performance to a super snappy 6s.

    I’d recommend backing up your device, then holding the home and power button to do a soft reset. Then when it comes back reset the network settings. After that reconnect to WiFi and update to iOS 11.1, after it upgrades go ahead and unlock it and then once it’s on the home screen leave the iPad for about 10-15 minutes, go grab lunch, this will give it time to index. This will give you the best chance of a smooth experience. Just keep in mind I upgraded my Pro to .1 last night and while about 90% of stutters and delay are removed I do have some stutter remaining when swiping the control center up and scrolling through my multitasking menu. Other then that, loading/and the huge stutters have been fixed, I have also yet to see any lockups or random crashes granted it’s only been 15-16 hours since I updated. Overall 11.1 was a improvement and I am excited to see further improvements in iOS 11.2

    I was always under the impression that restoring from a backup created the same problems?

    Very rarely does it retain the same problems. It can happen though.

    iOS backups backup your phone contents and user settings and not a whole image of the system.
