Betas usually make me nuts as apps wont work correctly, bugs, etc. I know, its a beta so its to be expected. I see a lot of jumped on the beta wagon though and had some ok results from what I read? Im thinking of going ahead and doing so but need that swift kick to do so. Whats the thoughts thus far on it? Apps working well? Any performance issues, sticking? Etc?

Thanks for the input all!

You said it yourself, betas usually make you nuts and this is the first iOS 11 beta with LOTS of changes and whilst it isn't good for a first beta you will come across lots of little issues tha pt will after a little while make you want tot go back.

I ran it for a couple of days and e joyed it but found that the apps weren't all fully compatible, elf YouTube loses its search option - kind of makes it difficult to find what you want, a messaging app hides the text box where you are typing etc.

I would recommend waiting, unless you want to waste a few hours backing up, updating, restoring etc...

I'm tempted, but won't do it. I've had betas royally screw me up in the past, and I just don't feel like dealing with it anymore. The new iPads are just dying for iOS 11 to be installed, but I'm going to give it its due time in the oven and wait until the final release.

I jumped over to the iOS 11 forum and yea... seems like many have had nightmare thus far. Guess it's not all good yet, as of course it shouldn't be.

When iOS 11 is released, jump on it. Right now Apple has just released the first iOS 11 developer preview beta. I wouldn't jump on that.

I am tempted but I don't jump into it... iOS11 ist in early Beta stage and it ist normal to find different kind of problems... If you use your iPad productive wait for a much more mature version.

If you have several devices, no problem, jump on the bandwagon and instal iOS 11 db1.
If it’s your daily driver, don’t as it will not be good enough yet.
E.g. I can’t upload practicum assignments as the selector function in safari doesn’t work yet.
No problem for me as I have a 9.7, 10.5 and a 12.9 at this moment, so having one with iOS 11 is just fun to try and play with it.

If betas drive you nuts than loading the very first beta of a new major OS release is probably something to avoid.

If you can't tolerate bugs then don't make the switch yet. Earliest you should jump on to iOS 11 is when the public beta is released, that will be a far more stable release.

I made the jump on my iPhone and I regret it. I wouldn't jump on it until more bugs get worked out at the least. I also put OS4 on my Apple Watch and it freezes and restarts itself once or twice a day now. Just not the best idea in my opinion. Learn from the mistakes of others.

I am waiting on 11. Done the Beta thing and it was a pain in the butt.

Come fall it will be like getting a new iPad when they release 11.

Just enjoying the 10.5 right now, very much so.

I jumped on the beta the first day my 10.5 arrived, I don't use anything intensive so I haven't seen any bugs yet. Battery life was wonky the first day but its excellent now for some reason.
