    I am on 10.2 right now and I am planning to stay on it as long as I have my 6S.
    What about you?

    I would suggest to upgrade at least to 10.3 to take advantage of AFS. But anyways, why not update to iOS 11 on the final release?

    This post is borderline. Just throws a statement out there with no backup. If you’re going to make an assertion here that you know will be unpopular, I’d at least provide some reasoning.

    I would personally stay on 10.2 because I saw that 10.3.x performs slower on 6S, based on youtube's comparison videos. Besides I've heard that 10.3 reduce the CPU power proportionally on battery level to prevent the unexpected shutdowns, which many users experienced with their 6S/6S+.
    I barely see any real advantages of AFS. Every single test and benchmark shows lower scores on 10.3 compared to 10.2. Can only imagine what a power hit for 6S iOS 11 would bring...

    FAKE NEWS! 10.3 runs absolutely perfect on my 6s without any of those stated issues and expect iOS 11 will bring it to the next level just as smooth.

    Unless you're jailbroken I don't see a reason to not update

    I agree. 10.3 has been great on my 6s.

    You've already accused, tried and convicted iOS 11 without any real evidence about your particular use case? I'm sorry, I cannot do that based solely on the use cases of total strangers. I plan to upgrade my 6s to iOS 11 when it is released.

    iOS 11 is a stuttering slug on my 6S Plus ATM. But I'm going to restore and do a fresh install to cleared everything up. Should be great after that.

    Me too.
    It freed up space in my 6s and I feel it snappier

    I downloaded ios 11 on my iPhone 6 and tried watchOS 4. Regretted it. Downgraded my iphone yesterday night and also brought my watch to apple store to send to the depot to have it downgraded.

    No watch for a couple days, fml :(

    It’s actually very speedy on 10.3.2 (and 10.3.3 beta) so your info is not correct. It’s so easy to buy into benchmarks that don’t actually mean very much in real usage terms. It’s definitely faster on 10.3.x than 10.2 shutdowns can be for other reasons besides software... there are battery issues for which Apple created a replacement program for, so this might explain shutdowns. Perhaps you should work on writing accurate thread titles instead of click bait.

    Personally, I ran 10.3 on my iPhone 6 for some time. As fast or faster than earlier versions, including 9.x.x versions. No issues at all. I can't speak for the battery throttling you mention, but a relative got a new 6s from Apple due to this issue and no problems since.

    You are better off trusting the testimonials from members of this forum, I think, than a youtube video.

    The throttling mentioned is in fact introduced in 10.2.1, my device with a worn battery had taken a direct hit.

    That's I am most afraid of...
    My first 6S was replaced in December in Apple Store because of unexpected shutdowns. Now my current 6S works flawless on 10.2 and I really don't want to risk of receiving potential hit like yours, caused by 10.3.x...

    My battery life right now looks like this:


    And I really would be very disappointed if reduced on 10.3.x

    Wasn't that proven to be a bug and went away in 10.3.1??

    I have a 7Plus as my daily and use a 6s as a "fool around" device all the time. It does not take a performance hit when battery is low.

    I installed iOS 11 beta on a 5s, and if I'm being honest it's been pretty good. I mean put aside the beta bugs, but it does everything well.

    I’m happy with iOS 11 on my iPhone 6S.

    It’s pretty stable, majority of the applications I’ve tested (50+) work without any issues, just a couple which won’t load. Performance is ok, some lag, but for a first beta, perfectly acceptable in my view.

    So I will wait for beta 3 . I won't install beta 2 on my iPhone 6S Plus

    I don't know how anyone can answer with certainty based upon the first beta of a major OS upgrade after a few days. When the 3rd or 4th beta has been out and tested for a while then we will know how it runs and if there are benefits.

    I use my 7 as DD. I have a 6s Plus as well, so once the PB is released I may install iOS 11 on that device.

    Same here running iOS 11 on my iP6S and its smooth for a beta. Occasional cutters, bugs etc. but its all part of running beta software. Im experiencing a little lag in parts of the UI and some apps seem to be loading slower, however once the apps are up and running some are lightning fast.
