    So I just watched the performance test between iOS 10.3 and iOS 11 Beta 1, and I gotta say, I'm kind of nervous.

    Yeah, I know it's only beta 1 and that we can't really judge the performance of new iOS versions until the final September release, but in general, does the performance of the final iOS x.0 release really differ from its beta 1 version? For those of you who have experienced previous iOS x.0 beta cycles, what have you typically noticed? I'd appreciate your input on this matter.

    In the middle of several books.
    You can't compare Apples to Oranges and expect the result to be accurate.

    From the impressions I'm getting around here, iOS 11 B1 isn't nearly as stable as iOS 10B1, but 10B1 was an outlier. Most beta 1s are pretty unstable and buggy. Wait till beta 4/5 before making conclusions. If its not better around beta 5, then there is a problem.

    As far as I remember, iOS 10 beta 1 was a lot smoother and faster than iOS 11 beta 1 but also more stable.
    I think iOS 11 was not really ready yet for the first beta when wwdc came but Apple decided it can release it nevertheless. But this is only my speculation.
    Let's hope that the performance becomes on par with iOS 10 in September, or even close.

    iOS 10.3.3 in its current state has had almost a full year of cumulative development, so I think it would be difficult for even iOS 11.0 to be as refined and smooth as 10.3.3 is.

    It's the first beta! It will have so much logging and diagnostics enabled at this point that performance will take a hit. Also performance is a matter of perception, probably based on how the UI performs.

    Don't forget I am comparing the first beta of iOS 10 and the first beta of iOS 11.
    The gap between iOS 11 and 10 is bigger than the gap between iOS 10 and 9:

    It's still an apples / oranges comparison & means literally nothing. It's not even going to be released for another three months. You can maybe compare iOS 10/11 GM builds but until then nothing is relevant or comparable in the slightest.

    My iPad mini 4 ran like a 5 year old Android phone. Way to buggy to even consider speed at this level.
