    Just a quick rant here - But I have to say iOS 11 has so far been the buggiest public release I've ever used.

    I used the developer beta throughout its release, and that was definitely the buggiest beta release too.

    I've been recommended to completely wipe my iPhone and start from scratch and see if it makes it better - I hope so. It's really slow, I've found a ton of bugs and it drains the battery super quick :(

    Even my GF, who isn't particularly tech savvy, said that her IP6 is running much slower since the 11 update. I can't say I've noticed much difference on my 7 tbh

    Shock horror that 3 year old device is running slow on a brand new OS.

    My iPhone 7 Plus was oodles faster than my GFs iPhone 6 Plus on IOS 10 before she got a 7 Plus.

    Took a while to 'prepare' the update on both my iP7+ and iPad Pro.

    I think these were just fixes for previous models, anyone confirm?

    There'll be a load of other stuff fixed/improved that Apple don't publish.

    Interesting they mention phones that have been repaired with non genuine parts not working properly etc...

    Why is it slower though? They've added features like camera filters and different menus, but there's been virtually no changes in animations / graphical quality.

    It's only got slower because they're intentionally crippling older devices.

    Even more of a reason for me to stick on IOS 10.3.1 then, my phone runs fine as it is.

    Has anyone done a fresh install of IOS 11 on a iphone 6 to see if it helps at all?

    Quick question.

    I went from IP6>8+ and decided to set my it up as new. If I plug it into itunes will it try syncing everything from my iphone 6 over?

    Not really, there isn't that much difference between 10 and 11 on an iPhone 6 from personal experience. The notion that they intentionally cripple older devices is an internet fallacy.

    My phone (iP7+) started lagging on 11.0.2 when I press the sleep/wake button. Updated to 11.0.3 and it's a bit better but still not as responsive (instant) like it normally is.

    My 10.3.3 iPhone 7 feels like it's getting buggier and I haven't even upgraded to 11.

    Safari has started crashing and they keyboard keeps getting borked in Messages so I have to exit the app and reopen it
