    I have 11.01............no major dramas but a couple of minor things need sorting but I did this at the same time as switching to Office 365 & a new Laptop.

    My advice is wait for another 2 - 4 weeks then get the upgrade as I have no doubt there is more "fixes" to come.

    My 2c FWIW.

    IOS will reset your phone with each update......

    You likely have a few un-needed/necessary services running in the background.

    Go into ...Settings.... and turn off services you don't use......as an example I have my bluetooth, wifi Siri,automatic downloads etc,etc...turned off on my phone and manually configure them as I need them.

    I always check my settings after an update, I prefer my own.
    I always check to see what is running and I even check my tabs open etc. No services running while out, only ran Lyft and Uber for a bit when using it.

    My son even looked at my phone and can’t see what is eating it up either and he is an IPhone Guru.

    Posting here seems to take a lot of it for some reason . Safari been the most battery eater .

    Why it’s different now I don’t know.
    It says I can go back to 11.0. Maybe I should try that?

    My 5S doesn't have the IOS 11 update available and it was my iPad Pro that updated, no issues with battery life there.

    Update:

    After reviewing 11.03 and hearing about battery life being better, I decided to download it the other week.
    Glad to say that it has improved and now my phone has not nearly died within a few hours .
    I can even come to this site without eating up 10 per cent per post.

    It is faster and I’m liking it.

    havent updated but my phone (6s) has been freezing quite a bit lately. I dont have enough memory to do the update so might have to get a new phone.

    If it’s freezing it could also be that you are running out of memory. Off load some your pics, music, old messages and whatever you got stored on there that you don’t need .

    It could save you getting a new phone if you don’t need one .

    I have cleared everything off my phone but it still freezes. it started about a week before they released ios 11. regardless I probably need a new phone because 16gb just isnt enough when about 10gb of that is taken up by the operating system alone. If I delete everything I only have about 5.5gb of usable storage.

    Just DL’ed 11.1 on my iPhone 6.

    The original 11 cut battery life & there was a lag for most apps etc.

    Further fixes improved things & now with 11.1 I’m thinking most of the bugs should be fixed.

    One annoying thing has been Bluetooth coming on when I had it turned off. As others have commented I also prefer to turn my own settings on & off as required.

    Doing this saves battery life etc.

    More after a week on 11.1.

    :cheers2:

    I’m writing this on an iPad Pro, got an Android phone in my pocket and a Win 10 PC sitting on my desk.

    I’m not biased...

    They ALL annoy me equally (albeit for different reasons).
