    I have an iPhone 6S. Was wondering if anyone could speculate whether or not our iPhones will become slow with iOS 11.

    Sure, or not, and/or for some it will and for some it won't. That's pretty much the extent of what speculation would come down to.

    You will have your answer in ten months from now. You might require some patience until then.

    No one on the forum knows but since you're wanting an exact answer lets go to the magic 8-ball:

    Depends on the feature set / requirements for older hardware. Just like Force Touch only works on the newer models of iPhones. You do know Apple love product obsolescence?

    You can't really given that the phones are different enough with 6s having twice the RAM that the 6 has, among other improvements and additions (like new generation TouchID, 3D Touch, etc.).

    I'm trying to figure out if I should change my screen or not. It's cracked.

    If I'm getting a new iPhone anyway I won't change.

    But if this one gets slow I'll change.

    No way to really know, especially in any particular situation that can differ from person to person and device to device.

    It's possible that it could bc they don't even sell the 6 anymore.

    Apple does not sell the iPhone 6 anymore, but it's still widely available on the market.

    What does selling have to do with anything?

    The 6s won't take as hard of a hit vs the regular 6. But none of us will truly know what happens until the betas for 11 come out.

    No, even the iPhone 5 runs iOS 10 quite well. It may not get all of the features of iOS 11 (whatever they may be), but I doubt that it will slow it down significantly.

    It should bring it to a crawl. That's how they sell the new models. IOS 12 will make it run backwards.....

    Also I want the 6S because of the headphone jack.

    They didn't put one in the 7

    :(

    Yours is maybe. Honestly, I've noticed no decline in the performance of my iPhone 6 through iOS 8 to 9 and now on 10.

    To the OP, none of us can see the future so we don't know how current devices will run on iOS 11, but is this really something that one needs to worry about almost a year in advance?
