    Has anybody installed the beta on the above devices? How is performance and battery life?

    The Pro has quite some stutter on 11.2.5 when going in and out from mission control (app switcher).

    Performance and battery life on my 10.5: no complaints whatsoever. Can't speak for the iPhone 7.

    Well I have forgotten the performance on 10.3.3. However, I think that 10.3.3 is still faster.

    This was always the case. iPhone is faster only on the original firmware they were shipped. There is a tradeoff between new features and performance. Majority of users in macrumors usually report that new firmware is as fast as old one, in our case that iOS 11 is as faster as iOS 10 on iPhone 7. It is false. Well if you decide to update to iOS 11, I will highly recommend to go to 11.3

    My experience is different. My iPhone 6 which originally shipped with IOS8 was perfectly fine on IOS9, however once on IOS10 performance dropped big time. Same with the good old 4S, shipped with IOS5 was fine until IOS7.

    My point being that I would expect an iPhone to at least do well on the next IOS version, if not two. Everything else is planned obsolescence. And iPhones are too expensive to only last well for one year.

    You can upgrade to 11.3 beta or wait until final release.

    Yeah can't believe an iPhone with 1gb RAM cant handle iOs11 as well as the iPhone X. Must be planned obsolescence.
    Why cant the software update increase your RAM when you update?

    Damn it Apple!!

    Let me argue the other way around: why did they only put 1GB RAM in a phone 3 years ago when 2GB and more was already standard on Android? And what does IOS 11 provide in extra user functionality vs IOS 9 that would justify the extra RAM use?

    Why doesnt todays iPhone X have 16GB like the iPhone in 5 years will have? Do you see how limited and logicless your reverse argument is?

    Because it is not needed for todays requirements. Just like 3 years ago, we had lower requirements and iOS 9 ran fine (clearly otherwise people wouldnt be saying its slower now on iOS11).

    Is your desktop from 2005 smashing AAA games in 2018 maxed? Nope. Must be planned obselescence

    I disagree with your aggressive reply and you are comparing Apples with Oranges but I don't see any point discussing with you further. /discussion
