Anyone put iOS 11 on the latest gen iPod Touch yet? How does it perform?
I'm not updating since I do not wish to lose my 32 bit apps.
I have no apps on mine as it is 100% music.
I installed iOS 11 and it works fine for my use.
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.
New update 11.0.1 is out and I have read is supposed to fix this issue.
Hi, just bought 2nd ipod touch.. with current os ios 8. SHould i upgrade to Ios 11.0.3? Is the battere issue fix? Will use mine mainly for music player and maybe install some games to kill time. Please advise.
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).
How about the issue for battere life with ios11. Is it also affecting to ipod touch?
I would personally stick with iOS 8
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.
Delete any profile or connect to iTunes.
THIS. The 6th gen iPod touch has never had great battery life, but iOS 11 made it even worse for me. I've already resorted to tricks like putting it in "Do not disturb" mode and turning off Bluetooth when I'm not using it (if I remember; my headphones are BT so I usually need it on). I would use Airplane Mode or just turn it off completely if I didn't value the possibility that "Find my iPod" could otherwise be able to locate my device. I've also configured Mail to only fetch manually. If there were a "low power mode" on the iPod, I'd probably use it all the time.
I use my iPod for a couple hours a day and it barely lasts a day or two now with most of that time spent in standby. It wasn't incredibly better before, but I only had to charge it maybe twice a week and now it's several times a week. Both pale in comparison to the 5th generation Touch, where I maybe only had to charge it once a week, but that device was getting quite sluggish with modern apps and then-current iOS versions.
I don’t see any improvements with it. I hate that a lot of the apps now have a new look. I wish I didn’t update. I don’t notice any difference with battery life.
Is there a problem with GPS with IOS11? I have updated to 11.0.3 and the status always says no gps, Showing approximate location. Is there any solutions for this one?
For the battere life itself, i find no major impact to mine. Playing bluetooth with wifi on will last 14 hours which is enough for me and it will be longer if i just play it through headphones.
I cringed when my new ipod initialization did not give me any choice but to update to ios 11. Now battery problems, but I am not a fan
The iPod touch has no GPS.
Oh ok... I thought there is location menu then it should have gps.. my mistake.. thanks
I'd been holding off on updating my 6th. generation iPod touch to iOS 11 until 11.1 came out. After installing 11.1, overall system performance and stability are still fine, no negative impact there whatsoever. Battery life has definitely taken a hit though. I'm hoping that this is just the usual sort of battery drop you tend to see in the first days after installing iOS (when iOS busies itself updating the data sets for Photos Memories, Spotlight search results, etc). But I certainly hope it improves, since the 6th. gen had frankly poor battery life before, and if iOS 11 makes it worse, then that's very far from ideal.
