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

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?

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.

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

They didn't put one in the 7

:(

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.
Ok thanks.

I would like to keep my 6 S

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?
