    Has anyone downloaded it for the iPhone 5s? has performance suffered? I'm reluctant on downloading it

    I did. Phone actually seems faster now. Think it cleaned some things up in the process of upgrading

    Considering what past iOS releases have done to older devices I don't blame you for being cautious! That said Apple has actually put some effort into solving some of the performance issues with iOS and users of all supported devices are generally reporting that their devices feel zippier.

    I installed it on my 5s and performance has not suffered so far. However, there are a few things in IOS 10 that is going to take some getting used to.

    Devices seems faster actually with iPhone 5s, but I'm not a fan of new notifications look and new lock screen :/.

    It seems much faster, battery life about the same as on iOS 9. Feels slightly warmer but that usually goes away after day or 2 after fresh update.

    iOS 10 on my 5S has been great so far. I've not noticed any lags or slow-downs. I'm really enjoying the changes.

    Been using it on my 5s for a month now without many problems. The final release is fine for the 5s

    I agree with the above. iOS 10 is fine on this device.

    I'm curious as to that also. My 5s has performed very well and I do not care about the larger size phones. Have toyed with going with the SE perhaps just to future proof for a few more updates. However, phones are no longer cheap.

    I finally caved in a few days ago and decided to update after reading an overall favorable consensus about 5s and iOS 10. Can confirm that it runs smoothly and without any noticeable hiccups. However, it seems that my battery life has taken a significant hit and hasn't improved much after 'indexing' as most people say.

    But my battery life was acceptable before and didn't deplete as quickly prior to updating to iOS 10. Would you recommend doing a clean install?

    From my understanding, the 5S did fairly
    Well with iOS 10. If it can uphold to iOS 11, that's a good run for an iPhone of that age already. It really depends on what iOS 11 brings in terms of software.
