    Will my device run iOS 11 fine or will the software cause it to lag?

    Of course! The 12.9" ipad pro was MADE for ios 11. Not upgrading would be silly. Do it. Do it NOW!

    Yes. Having the built-in Flashlight app in Control Center was totally worth it, I don't even care about the other stuff.

    Although I didn't want to lose access to my 32-bit apps, I went ahead and updated my 1st gen 12.9 Pro to 11. Unlike every other update I've experienced on iPads, this update made my 12.9 Pro *MORE* responsive. It's very smooth. I like the new dock and method of selecting apps for multitasking. The only downside at this point in time (aside from the loss of 32-bit) is the single column of widgets in landscape mode (instead of the 2 column mode under iOS 10).

    OP I own an original iPad Air it it’s been running great on iOS 11. Yours should be better than fine.

    I ran a Geekbench 4 compute test and my 2017 12.9 IPP went from 26,704 to 29,838. CPU scores didn’t budge, but iOS11 seemed to speed up this beast.
