    iOS 10 was better than iOS 11 on my iPhone 7 Plus.

    That's really more of a personal decision as it's different for different people.

    Yes but from your point of view, is ios 11.1 as good as ios 10.3.3 in terms of battery and speed?

    "Speed" has been fine for me even before 11.1 as I've been on iOS 11 from the day it was publicly released. But that's me (and various others), while there are some others who don't share that view/experience, which doesn't really say much as far as what my experience is like. As far as the battery goes, having 11.1 installed for less than two hours so far, there's not much that I could say about it one way or another.

    Read up some more threads and reviews if you haven't already. Keep in mind that 32-bit apps won't work with iOS 11. Also see what's new in iOS 11 to see if your boredom would be affected by it (if that's really the only or the main reason for updating).

    Also your home button will be slower on iOS 11.

    Which might or might not necessarily be something that the OP will experience (or care about even if experienced). That's why a good part of it is more of a personal thing that differs for different people with different devices.

    On my 7+ and iPad Pro, iOS 11 added great features but worse battery life than iOS 10.3.3. And some glitches.

    I’ve been using 11.1 since the second beta, and it’s now on a par with 10.3.3 for battery life and performance in my experience. Plus it has some important security patches and updates.

    So I definitely recommend 11.1 now.

    You might want to check out how many of your apps will not work on iOS 11

    On your iPhone or iPad go to Settings > General > About, and then click Applications in the list for non compatible apps.

    You can decide if these "not compatible apps" are important - if they are important you might want to hold off on the update

    Remember there is no going back. I hope it doesn't drive you nuts! It's keeping me on 10.3.3 with my 7.

    Why's that, because of home button lag?
    --- Post Merged, Oct 31, 2017 ---
    I am downloading now. They say it's not that bad, really hope I won't notice it, otherwise It could be weird to adapt to lag.

    It won't let me see my apps, don't know why, but I guess all important will work

    My 7 has been fine on all versions of iOS 11. Not so my two iPads, which went back to 10.3.3 while Apple was still signing that one. I think you'll be fine on 11.1

    If nothing happens when you tap Applications it means all of your apps are compatible with iOS 11.

    Thanks on reply, I updated, so far so good, every single app is working.

    And thanks to all of you who found time to reply.

    It worked good for me, I just don't like this new notification center and that I lost date and clock on today pane, that sucks.

    Home button delay doesn't bother you huh? That's good if it doesn't. Some day I will have to deal with it too if I upgrade.

    I haven't tried 11.1 on my two iPads, but 11.0 and 11.0.x were not good experiences. Runs nicely on my iphone 7, however.

    Personally i stayed on ios 9 most of this year (iphone 6s), in August i updated to ios 10.3.3 finally however i found two serious annoying bugs so, the decision is pretty simple for me today i'm updating all my devices to ios 11.1

    IOS 10 was never THAT great anyways imo.

    11.1’s speed reminds me of 10.3.3. I had laggy scrolling on 11.0-11.0.3 on my iPhone 8+. It made my 6s+ noticeably slower as well, but I traded that to get my 8+. That said, battery life was always really great on 11.0. Maybe there will be an improvement on 11.1? I’m happy with iOS 11, definitely now with 11.1.

    Not really, I noticed it but still it's not that bad honestly. It's fast as it was it's just different animation.

    So far so good. Will see about battery after few days.
