    I am looking for opinions on how the iOS 11 beta is running on a new Pro 10.5. I will be installing later tonight and I was hoping to see if people felt that it was stable enough to run. Thanks!

    As far as I can tell, there isn't a publically available 10.3.2 IPSW for the iPad Pro 10.5 to roll back to. That is, if you upgrade to iOS11, there isn't currently a way to downgrade to iOS10.

    If anyone has a link to the 10.3.2 IPSW for the 10.5, please share.

    I may be wrong about that. Looks like the 10.5 Pro is either iPad7,1, iPad7,2, iPad7,3 or iPad7,4. The ipsw files are available for 10.3.2 at https://ipsw.me.

    Per geekbench, the 256 GB WIFI 10.5 Pro is iPad7,3.

    Anyone got Files to add Dropbox or see files on the SD reader?

    Files is barely functional right now and doesn't even work with local storage properly. It doesn't have 3rd party cloud compatibility yet (or more likely they are not compatible with it) and it definitely doesn't see external or network attached storage. It's basically a prettier iCloud Drive right now.

    I'm sure it will get a lot more useful but I'm not sure if it will gain Network or USB storage capabilities. I'd hazard a guess that it will not though.

    Wouldn't you be able to restore through iTunes and not have to choose the ipsw? iTunes will download the correct firmware for you.

    Picked up an iPad 10.5” today and upgraded to iOS 11 Beta but when it went to restore from my old iPad that’s on iOS 11 it’s just stalled on the Apple logo for over an hour. Anyone have an idea what’s going on or how to hurry it along?

    I didn’t see an ipsw file for 10.3.2 but the developer site does have one for 10.3.3. In case anyone wants to downgrade. I’m assuming they did this cause 10.3.3 will roll out pretty soon for everyone.

    I received my 10.5 yesterday and upgrade to iOS 11 without troubles.

    I don't recommend to upgrade because it's quite inestable.

    Is someone using PDF Expert 6? I’ve noticed that annotate and signing pdf files not working anymore? Can someone confirm this?

    Everything seems to be working great for me on iOS 11. No major issues, more stable than my 7 Plus, and I am loving it so far on the 10.5. I am still having issues with 1 task though which is the only thing I need to be able to do to get rid of my MacBook. I need to download a plex server update for my NAS, then upload it to a website. When I click on the download link, I just get a text file. I have tried doing it with Documents 6 as well as the new Files app. Any help is appreciated!

    I never know what people think they mean when they say this...

    Is it stable enough for me to run on my iPad Pro 10.5? Yes. But I know what I'm doing, and work in software development for a living, so putting up with bugs is part of my DNA.

    For normal people? No.

    I have since installed and find it stable for my use as well. I more so just wanted to know if there were any glaring bugs or if people felt iOS 11 was performing well on the new Pro.

    Not sure if you have the app Puffin, it can perhaps help.

    Normally I wouldn't dig into this but you kinda started it. You can't just arbitrarily define a "normal person" and state that iOS 11 is not stable enough for such an individual to run. For example, I am a college student spending the summer at home, running iOS 11 on an iPad that I only rely heavily on during the school year. Is it stable enough for me? Yes. My mother, however, probably couldn't handle running iOS 11 considering she heavily relies on her iPhone 6S for her job, and has minimal technical ability to begin with. Based on your statement, it seems as though we would both be grouped into the "normal person" category despite the fact that only one of us can probably handle running iOS 11 in its beta stages. My point here is that there is no such thing as a "normal person" or "average user." Everyone's usage habits differ to some extent, which means that nobody can make claims whether or not some vaguely defined group of people will be able to tolerate running a beta version of iOS.

    Day one had some bad bugs like dock staying on screen at wrong orientation and multitasking stopping working, so had a few reboots.

    Been quite good recently though, there is only on concern and that is that full brightness doesn’t seem as bright as it should be. 10.5 is meant to be 600 nits and my 511 nit mbp seems brighter outdoors. Hope this is something to do with 11 and not a flawed device.

    I'm normally pretty tolerant of bugs but I've taken the dev1 beta off my iPad 10.5 and my iPHone 7+ - for stability and battery reasons. I'm looking forward to dev2 or public 1 and will probably go back then - but it was the most unstable beta I've experienced for quite some time.

    I kind of get to experience a whole new iPad in a couple of weeks that way, too :)

    Totally agree. There are a lot of glitches and resprings especially on iPhone 7. Despite everything I’m gonna stay with iOS 11 with all these difficulties hoping upcoming betas will be much more stable than the previous one.
