Bear in mind that if something is wrong then people complain.
If everything is is okay then folk say nothing at all.
Is this a widespread problem? It might be, but the internet is not the best place to find out, not from Apple’s viewpoint anyway. What usually happens is that one person says they have a problem, then ten other people think they have the same issue, when in fact the performance of their phone hasn’t actually changed. Do not underestimate the power of the group mind.
Doubt I'm the only one to observe... your invitation to stick one's head in the sand is annoying.
There are widespread problems with iOS 11 -- stop doing the "nothing to see here" wave and pay attention.
I'm an iPhone and iPad owner since first release of each. Now have a 6+ and an iPad Pro. Not as toys -- I count on each of them as tools to get through my working day.
Both devices have turned to shit under iOS11. Visual vx mail, email, camera, calendar, general sluggishness, freezes, missed key strokes, stuttering. Daily hard-resets required. I hadn't yet noticed the calculator issue, but it's pretty freakin' easy to replicate. That's not any kind of "group mind."
I would do a slick and fresh install but I can't get my photos to sync right now and don't want to lose them. Yes, battery life has also decreased significantly. Restoring the background activities that defaulted to "all-on" under iOS 11 install did help some.
The issues will get fixed eventually, like they almost always do. Meanwhile don't patronize those who are alarmed by meaningful failures in Apple's commitment toward excellence. By identifying the issues they are driving the fix process and also reflecting the fact that Apple users give a damn. Apple needs this feedback just like any other customer-serving organization. Hopefully they are listening.

I hope the final outcome is that Apple eventually have to cough up. They have over $200 Billion in the bank because they are worlds biggest and most effective tax avoider. I hope this is just the start of all the other multinational tax dodgers finally getting what's coming to them.
Of course the situation Apple finds itself in is all the fault of the US government, not Ireland or the EU as it is US tax legislation that allows US companies to indefinitely defer tax repatriation while pretending to their host countries their tax is payable in the US.
I don't really care what tax Apple pays in the US. If I was a US taxpayer, I would be more concerned about the rate at which Apple was paying tax, not the dollar amount.
Please understand that I don't intend for the question to sound hostile. Really just taking the temperature of a concerned party, when asked to consider the long view on this relationship between sovereign and International Corporation. If you think I have the narrative wrong, please tell. There is much to consider and I honestly haven't yet come to my own conclusions about this ruling.

If more and more companies like Foxconn do this, which seems to be the trend, isn't this going to end up in mass unemployment, riots and calamity?
