Updated here as well as soon as it came out - not that I was suffering from anything major other than a lack of new emojis hehe.

Still not here 😡
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

WifeWalker, and I, just got our brand new....iphone7 :D

I actually got it about a week ago but couldn't use the encrypted backup because....I forgot the original encryption password. Haven't backed up my iPhone in about 3 years. So, withthe help of Taeles, I found a way to do it through iCloud. Problem is, I have to pay for iCloud storage :'( (for now).

So, with all that said, I don't have the energy to go to iOS 11 just yet. One day, I'll be forced to update, I guess. Keep up the good work, of letting us know of all the bugs, and their workarounds :-*

Apparently pre-iOS11 software will cease to operate on iPhone 7’s at the start of October.

I did Tales test, and I don't have many apps that are pre 11. Should be ok, I hope.

Went hiking with my irreplaceable GPS tracking app and will be out again today. Was talking to a friend (and more of an outdoorsy person than I am). After seeing what it does, he wishes he had the app, but it is no longer available at the Apple Store as the company has moved on to bigger, more profitable software. As I don't intend to get a new iPhone any time soon, love my 6+, don't need a 12MP "camera" that does less than a quarter of what my mirrorless and easily portable camera does (and costs less than half of an iPhone 8 ), and am tired of tech companies dangling tiny "improvements" without substance to entice you to give up perfectly functioning devices and spend big (obscenely large) bucks for the privilege, I will happily remain ios11 free.

Still... am curious enough in hearing how you guys are doing with it.

I've been lucky in avoiding whatever issues are plaguing Taeles's iPad thus far.  I've sucked it up that I'll lose access to certain apps in return for iOS 11. Whether or not my iPhone will suffer when I upgrade is a different story.  Until the powers that be issue a message giving us the all clear to upgrade, I'm sticking to whatever version of iOS 10 is currently installed.  Of course, being a 16 GB phone, there is precious little installed on it.  Email takes up 90% of the space available.

I updated my iPad Air to iOS 11.0.1 on Wednesday and now it doesn't want to charge the battery to more than 66%..... At least that is what the indicator us telling me.  I've not had the same issue as Taeles but this will keep me from updating my one week old iPhone 7.

-watches ipad go from 100% to 85% in about 15 minutes just idling... while plugged in and charging... at the home screen-
-reboot-
-ipad charges back to up 100%-
-loads steam chat app to talk with pc gaming buddies on ipad while gaming on pc-
-30 minutes later notices 10% battery left-
-kills steam chat, leaves ipad at home screen nothing running and plugged in to wall-
-watches 9%... 8%... 7%... over about 10 minutes-
-reboot-
-ipad recharges to 100% in 40 minutes-

-flat stare at ipad, one eyebrow raised in distinct lack of humor-

11.0.2 released - doesn’t look like anything major and certainly not addressing the charging issues you’ve been reporting

Actually I think they may of stealth addressed the battery issues with 11.0.2. Just spent last 2ish hours in marvel future fight unplugged, 15% battery drop. Two days ago I would of been reaching for my 31w recharge cord/brick at the 1hr mark.

Well that sounds hopeful. Fingers crossed the improvement continues for you.

That's really concerning. I hate bad updates like that. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I'll definitely postpone or even skip this update.

For what it's worth, my only issue thus far with iOS 11 is that I can no longer bookmark my larger/longer PDF files. 

Then again, I'm still on 11.0.1.
