    I'm not updating since I do not wish to lose my 32 bit apps.

    It has DESTROYED the battery life of my Touch 6, my 6s+, and my 5s. There's a thread in the iOS 11 subforum where just about all iOS devices are getting smashed in the battery department except iPhone 8/8s.

    Hopefully Apple will sort this out soon.

    it's getting a bit laggy .. but overall still usable

    battery life somewhat down from iOS 10.. was not great before 11, now a little less than not great on 11

    I use the Touch as an iPad Nano. iOS 11 is great, Notes has a scanner, the keyboard can be used as a trackpad, camera has HBR, control panel finally makes sense, it's like a laptop in your pocket. Battery life does suffer, but I use Airplane mode when not on wifi, and turn off auto app updates. Works for me.

    I would wait a while for the reports to come trickling back.
    Depends also on the apps. The older 32 bit apps will not work on 11.
    (I personally never upgrade the IOS without a specific reason, such as favorite apps ceasing to function on the old system).

    There does not seem to be a consistent pattern. Some people just unlucky.

    Oh ok.., does the apple music cam show lyrics in ios 11? It doesn't in 8.4.. Btw, now if now I go to software update, it says that my version 8.4 is the up to date software, while last time its offering to upgrade to ios 11. What can I do?

    I don't have 11 yet. Which gen iPt did you buy? 5th gen only takes ios 9.x
    I would stay on 8 for a while. Not sure why yours no longer offers higher.
