    The autocorrect bug has left me devastated, and unable to work... LOL
    That’s why everyone who reads these posts should take those kinds of comments with a big grain of salt. Unusable? Show stopper? Deal breaker? Complete crap? Worst ever? Devastated? Unable to work? Ruined work flow? All hysterical, emotional, irrational nonsense from someone with OCD issues unable to cope. The vast majority of users, me included, just get on with life.

    iOS 11.2.2 runs like a dream on my SE. A couple of old apps that I hardly ever used weren’t supported, but on the whole it is worth the upgrade.

    My wife now has my perfectly usable iPhone 5 and her sister has our old iPad 4. Both of them are fine hardware but they can’t be upgraded to iOS 11.

    In the past l think there was not the same software update restrictions between old and new hardware. I am sure there is good reasons for this.

    Some may suggest that Apple is restricting software updates  to persuading  owners to replace older iPhones and iPads but l don’t believe this to be true, including the recent battery issues.
    There has always been restriction for older harware to upgrade to new one, the cuttoff is about 5 years right now but has been increasing.
    It's highly probably that those device would be very slow if they installed IOS 11.

    Some people say Apple should cut off old device earlier and say it to user cause old version supposedly don't work well on those old phones.

    For example, the Ipad 2's (early 2011 I think) last version was IOS 9.3.5. released in august 2016.

    One thing that's important to know when you upgrade to a new major version, often non apple apps are quite buggy (because they didn't test with the new version) or have changed their settings leading to more usage (facebook often does that). Sometimes IOS also reset some settings to higher power draining levels (like brightness, background refresh, GPS, etc).

    If you have a lot of apps, a big device, the number of things the phone does for the first few days is very very high.

    One last thing, if your phone is nearly full (less than 20%) you will see it go much much slower.
    You'd be surprised how many people have phones in that region that never seem to click that a serious culling would help them (despite Apple in this case putting an indicator on screen to that effect).

    iPhone 5S was first of current lineage of 64bit mobile processors; iOS 11 requires 64 bit. 

    Android OS devices are still striving to catch up, and are, at the flagship level, still a generation behind the A series in performance and functionality.

    The numbers would be different if Apple would still sign iOS 10.
    No kidding.  I hate 11.  Apple annoys you into upgrading.  I finally turned it off on my iPhone 7plus and stayed at 10 - yeah no throttling for me.
    What do you do with your 7+ that it already gets throttled?
    I have a 7 and have been using the hell out of it for a little over a year now, both work and play. Even with iOS 11 and its smaller battery haven’t once experienced any shutdowns or slowdowns.  
    6s user here... no slowdown with the latest version iOS running here...

    Seeing that we’re dealing with numbers here, do you have any quantitative evidence to show it’ll be significantly different, or are you merely speaking from sentiment?
    Well that’s pretty much impossible, since it’s a hypothetical situation, isn’t it?

    I waited until 11.2 to upgrade my iPhone 6. It was so slow as to be unusable. Opening an app took 20 seconds and any screen press took 10 seconds to have effect. 11.2.1 sped things back up at first, but after a week it was slow again. 11.2.2 has been fine so far. 
    Blathering bullshit!. I have an iPhone 6 and updated to iOS 11 the day it was released, went through all the point updates and did notice a small lag that certainly did not make it unusable. Unusable? More likely hysterical, overblown nonsense on your part. Give us break!
    Have you used his phone? Just because your upgrade experience went fine doesn’t mean that everyone else’s did.

    I upgraded my 6s to 11 and have been underwhelmed. A handful of new features and some interface tweaks. some of them nice, a couple i find a bit annoying. Nothing groundbreaking. My phone is definitely slower, though. Not unusable, but enough to affect usability, and from my perspective, the minor feature benefits are not worth the sacrifice in speed. More importantly, even at 11.2.2 I still find iOS 11 to be very buggy. If I could go back to iOS 10, I would, if for no other reason than to avoid all the glitches.

    To the user whose wife had an iphone 5 - it’s still perfectly usable with iOS 10; you’re not missing out much with iOS 11, so go ahead ad keep using the phone that has served you well!

    Just one data point, but always upgrade all Apple devices when available.  Upgrade to iOS11 on my Iphone 7 was first time I've had to deal w/ repeated app crashes & shutdowns.

    I haven’t really had issues with 11 on my iPad mini 2 but it does slow it down some.

    You did mention app shutdown, Apple does not control third party apps, that's the thing, many of the issues caused by IOS 11 are in fact not directly related to the OS at all.

    That's also why you tend to have less moaning about later updates, most third apps that matter have fixed their f-ups (cause having a few months of betas to do so seemingly was not enough...).

    If an App eats your storage, CPU cycle or resets its settings that has a major impact on performance and the OS will be blamed even if it is not causing the slowdown.

    Then you have the redownloading of all the new apps versions, resyncing, rebuilding that occurs with IOS itself having its own spring cleanup to do.
