    I am not sure why the 1st idiot to answer this thread had to talk out of his/her arse. My iPhone 6 took a little over 90 mins.
    That's SOP for SOG35. Just get used to it.
    Actually I assumed his comment was referring the actual 1st poster, JinTech, who claimed it only took 10 mins on his 6. On my 7 it took much longer than that.

    I see comments are pretty polarized here about this - I'm with the view that Apple is on the losing side with this, they're delaying the inevitable.

    is your 6 running about the same speed now, slower, faster?

    Update without a hitch, only took about ten minutes total on my iPhone 6s Plus.


    Same. Updated both an SE and a 6S, both near capacity, and both took about the same amount of time. Not significantly longer than normal, I would say.

    I expected to notice more of an impact from the file system upgrade, but our phones were already super-snappy and awesome.

    It took my iPad Pro 12.9" a while, but I didn't time it. I do have about 700 apps, and about 32GB free on my 128GB model. Over the years, I've noticed that a lot of updates, not just the betas, can take a surprisingly long time to complete. I'm waiting for the official release for my phone.
    Wow, I thought that I am biggest App fanatic when I had about 550 Apps on 16GB Iphone. :-o but you got me. :-)

    How solid is the file encryption? That is so important to me

    It's state-of-the-art, industry-leading, world-class, super-awesome, safe and secure encryption!  B)

    (seriously, you can trust it)

    The weird thing is that the first developer preview had an update time that was actually really short (less than 10 minutes). The update from the last beta to the 10.3 final took more than 15 minutes on the same phone.

    How is it running?
    Actually pretty snappy, doesn't feel like a new phone but faster than it did before for sure!

    Uh because that's how long it took me? No need to be crass.

    Right, and it actually took me ten minutes. Not sure why some are having more issues than others? I updated mine at around 10:00 AM PST so maybe their servers were not overloaded at that point?

    it was t the download that took time, it was the black screen install. far more than 10 minutes to complete the file system update on a 7.

    iPhone 5s 16GB here, update was really fast, maybe because I restored the phone – just to clear some junk away and install this OS with the brand-new APFS from scratch.

    Tried and failed 3 times to update OTA on my 6S, restarted with a message saying an error occured. The first time, the phone was bricked and I had to hold home-power to get it to boot up. Trying to update via iTunes now...

    1) Interesting that this comes during a point update, and not iOS 11.

    2) Interesting that this comes to iOS, which has the largest install base of all their OS X-based system, and not macOS first. (You can check Get Info on your Mac's drive or In Disk Utility to see if it lists APFS or Mac OS Extended).

    3) For me, macOS would be a great benefit to APFS because it would allow for very fast file copies, which is a system where I'm most likely to manipulate large files. The following video has an example of how APFS can be beneficial to Mac users. Maybe I'll back up and format my drive for APFS since Apple is confident enough to use it for iOS.



    4) Any ideas why it wasn't use for macOS? Is there any evidence that watchOS tvOS (or touchbarOS) have also been updated to APFS. My Apple Watch did seem to take a long time to update, too.

    If you are wondering about the implementation on iOS, read up on Apple's white paper on it. https://www.apple.com/business/docs/iOS_Security_Guide.pdf

    You may also want to search for news articles about how much of a headache breaking into the iPhone has been for law enforcement and government agencies, especially compared with Android.
