    Pretty sure that rules my iPad out since it was the first one to have the lighting cable.

    That post needs to be fixed, for a second it looked like our iPad mini 2 was out.

    Anyone know if any of the new productivity features will not be available on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro?

    I stood in queue in front of the Apple store for 7 hours to buy my iPhone 5 on release day. I've been using it every day since then (4 years, 8 months) and everything is working like it should. I've updated it from iOS 6.0 to the latest 10.3 and it's as fast as it was the day I bought it. The only thing that became worse than before is the battery life but that's to be expected. I'm now waiting for iPhone 8 with iOS 11 to be my next iPhone. :apple:

    Get an SE, it's the same form factor but EVERYHTING is better or faster.

    Wondering the same thing, but it's unlikely.
    It's already lacking some things that require Air 2.

    Why does iPad get flick keyboard but not iPhone? It's clearly wanted.

    That's a pretty good run. My wife's iPhone 5 battery was replaced under warranty because of the iPhone 5 battery replacement program. Did you ever look into that? It's expired now, though. Her iPhone was doing well too, but some things started to slow down in iOS 10. For some reason her messages would take 3-5 seconds to open every time. I bet I could have cleared it out by resetting something, or deleting all the messages, but a few areas were starting to get stuttery and she could use a better camera, so we bought her the SE shortly after and she loves it. We had been considering it before iOS 10 anyway, and it was just annoying enough for her to agree to switch.

    I'm surprised the 5S is still supported even if it's a 64 bit phone. Apple needs to push more under the bus in order to sell newer devices just as they do with the desktop.

    It doesn't, multitasking and things you don't have at this point you're not getting at ios 11. Same for the live photos effects on everything iphone 6 and older.

    I'm sorry but as a user how can you possibly advocate this? It's a good thing they support older hardware. What benefit is there to you if they drop support early just for the sake of making more money?

    Also your comment about desktops is untrue as iMacs dating as far back as 2009 will run High Sierra. It seems Apple support desktops (and laptops) for longer than they support phones.

    Do you have a source for this?
    My reasoning goes as follows: Since iOS 11 gets rid of slide-over (which iPad Air has), it would leave the iPad Air with less functionality than before, which would be very strange indeed, don't you think? :/

    I am surprised by this. I love my iPad Mini 2, but iOS 10 makes is almost unusable. It behaves as if it is low on RAM and is page swapping everything.

    Maybe iOS 11 will use less resources? One could hope.....

    Actually, iOS 11 doesn’t really get rid of slide-over. It’s just been replaced with popover, which is essentially the same and also runs on iPad Air. ;)
  18. dionysos283 macrumors newbie

    Jun 6, 2017
    Ah, ok. :)
    So the iPad Air will get popover, but not the other multi-tasking features, did I get this right?
  19. mikesch macrumors member

    Jun 30, 2015
    Yep, just like it’s been since iOS 9.

    Popover and PiP: All iPad models running iOS 11
    Split View: iPad Air 2 and newer
    Popover and Split View simultaneously: iPad Pro

    I just thought of something. The iPhone really took off around the time of the iPhone 5. There are a lot of 32-bit devices out there that are losing support. Anyone think iOS 11 will have the lowest adoption rate yet because of this? I mean, it won't be anywhere near Android, but maybe 70%? Guess you have to rip the band-aid off at some point.

    Does that mean you've never used TouchID? For me it has to be the biggest game changer in recent years, such a massive jump in UX, and applies every time you use your phone. Obviously most of us will barely even notice it any more (similar to you, I've had it 3.8 years and counting) but that was such a cool few months when it first came out, being constantly impressed by the simple act of unlocking your phone - almost envy that you have that ahead of you!

    +1. I've never understood that mentality of company over consumer - from consumers:eek: I could almost understand it from someone with Apple stock... almost. Considering the fluctuations of AAPL have very little to do with sales at Apple, even that doesn't hold much sway, imo of course.

    My 2011 MBA will be compatible with HS, and one of my iPads and my daughters' 6 & 6S will be compatible with iOS11. That's great from a consumer perspective. The fact that I'm upgrading none of the devices to HS nor iOS11 is irrelevant. The fact that I can is what should be appreciated.

    May I ask why? The phones at least should handle it pretty well - just don't like the features? I hear you on the mac front though, early 2011 MBP here, even with RAM and SSD upgrades she ain't as nippy as she used to be.

    Oh, no problem. Your guess was 100% spot on btw. There's nothing that interested my kids regarding the upgraded features. Both phones are hand me downs (from wife to mid kid from mid kid to youngest). They work as advertised and do everything my kids want them to do. They're plenty speedy and serve their intended purpose. The kids are happy, therefore I am. As for the actual updates, I've heard various anecdotal evidence on both sides of good vs bad regarding the performance of the handsets after updating. Grain of salt and all, I don't have to worry about it either way. Kids are happy.:)

    YYYYYEEEEEESSSSS!!!!! I can finally upgrade from my iPhone 5 and not feel guilty that I'm wasting money!!!

    Honest question: Are there certain things you do to maintain it so that it stays running well for that long? Are there certain rules to how often you should charge it and stuff like that? I have an iPhone 5 and the battery life is HORRIBLE. I just recently caved and got a Mophie battery case for it. It would get about three or four hours on a full charge before I got the case. It's also super slow with everything and often crashes or restarts. Is it all just luck???
