    Hey Folks!

    As our new iPads arrive on Tuesday, I wanted to know if anyone decided to directly install the iOS 11 beta on their brand new iPad Pro?

    I’m not sure yet, running iOS 11 on my 7+ and it’s quite buggy and the battery life seems horrible. On the other hand, the new features are way too nice to wait until fall.

    What do you think?

    Waiting for the public beta would be a good compromise I think. It should be more stable and have major issues fixed by then.

    I’ll restore from my current backup, use it for an hour or so then install the beta.

    I’m pretty happy with it on my 7+ so no major reason not to.

    I'll install the beta as soon as I can. Don't want to miss out the dock, drag drop etc.

    Ive got the beta on my existing iPad Pro and it’s just about stable enough. HAven’t found anything that refuses to work apart from a couple of games - and the new functionality is great. Battery life is affected but not bad. I might wait till the first public beta or at least the second dev beta for my new 10.5 though; want to see how smoothly it runs on a stable OS first.

    Im pretty happy with the beta in all my devices. I currently have it installed in my 12 inch iPad Pro, my iPad Air 2, iPhone 7 Plus and all work ok aside from minor glitches and battery dying slightly faster than normal. I will be installing it on my new 10 inch day one too.

    So, whats your take on the IPP now that the new beta has dropped. Im debating just going iPad instead of my Mac. Curious what the 12.9 owners think, thanks!

    I have to say I completely love iOS 11 on the iPads, its like a whole different device but it still does not replace a laptop for me. It’s very close though, I think if I didn’t have a MacBook Pro i wouldn’t get one and get an iPad but I find myself still going back to it instead of the iPad for some things.

    Aside from the big apps like Photoshop or Xcode, I feel like things are done much quicker on my laptop, even safari browsing.

    The beta seems more stable on my current 12.9 iPad than it is on my phone. It's incredibly beta on the phone.

    i always wonder how they do their updates. everytime, battery life is a point in early versions! on the other side, i don't think that i can wait until fall for all these features in iOS11 for iPad. most likely, i will wait until public beta first reviews.

    What bugs me, is that people say it's stable on the iPads. I'm not to keen on spending $100 though, when a free beta is only a few weeks away.

    But buying a new one with 10? the timing stinks :D

    I doubt many of those running the beta are registered developers.

    After pre-ordering my iPad Pro 10.5 on Monday, this was my first thought. Glad to see I'm not the only one. The new iOS 11 is half the reason I'm so excited to get it, so I can't imagine not installing it. I got iOS 10 on my old iPad the daybthe first beta came out. Obviously buggy but was worth it. This one should be even more worth it. I will also be downloading day 1!

    I'll be going against my better judgement and installing on day 1 as well. iOS 11 was the whole iPad Pro experience in the keynote and it just feels wrong running iOS 10 on this new device.

    3 choices

    1, pay for a developer account
    2, wait for the public beta
    3, google ‘get ios11 now’

    See I get that but idk I feel the opposite like I'm so comfortable in ios and I love how on the go my iPhone albeit smaller has the full capability of my iPad in my pocket. When I use a Mac I like it but for my computing needs it's really so much extra that I just don't need, and iOS doesn't have that, so I feel like the workflow for me is more efficient and intuitive on iOS vs MacOS for me personally.

    Well I'd likely wait for the public beta, but when it releases, anyone can get it? Where do you get it and how do you put it on the device? I've never done this before.

    Sign up for the beta program at beta.apple.com

    When the iOS 11 beta starts there’ll be a profile on the website to install. All that does is tell your phone to check beta updates instead of regular updates.

    Then when you next check for updates it’ll find the beta and install as any other updates.

    This is the same way developer betas are installed, the profile just comes from developer.apple.com
