I keep going back and forth to the iOS 11 beta. I have a backup with iOS 11 and went back to iOS 10 again tonight, probably my 3rd time doing it. Now I want to go back to 11, cause my backup on 10 was from 8/2. Is there a quick and easy way to do this? Should I even go back to the beta or just quit bouncing between the two?

Just don't. Simple.

I tried the beta day 1 and liked it. But I waited for a later beta. Now I'm just going to wait the few short weeks to get it.

I'm glad I waited. It's stressful obsessing over this stupid crap :D

Its rare that I am not on a beta release. Some better than others. I guess I have just grown used to it over the many years I have been updating to whatever is the latest.

Look at it this way: you're still getting a better experience on the beta than most (emphasis on that last word) Android users out there on release versions. Stick with the beta. It'll get better as time goes on and you won't have to lose any of your data.

I went back to iOS 10 today. I'll wait for the GM or 11.1. I love how stable 10.3.3 is.

I've done the same and bounced between beta and stable over the last few weeks, but ultimately iOS 10.3.3 is quick and stable enough over iOS 11 that I'll probably wait a month.

It is tempting though, just to get new Siri...

Only a month away from iOS 11 GM. As much as I'd love to go back to iOS 11 beta, 10.3.3 is just too damn stable for me to switch.
