    I’m staying on iOS 10. Everyone I know that’s upgraded to iOS 11 has told me they regret it and not to do it (endless bugs, severe battery drain). No upgrades for me – at least not any time soon.

      I’ve been running 11.2 on my 6s+ fo was he past few days and it has been the best for battery life, compared to all of the previous releases. Obviously, battery life may depend on your device.

    • Eluder

      Good idea, iOS 11 is a buggy turd, sadly as I’m using an iPhone X, I have no choice.

    • Marshall Davidson

      You’re all full of crap. There is nothing wrong with iOS 11 and I for one don’t notice any battery drain whatsoever. Take a look at the apps you’re running before making these kinds of statements. Also, who knows how much you use your phone during the day that could also be a problem with battery life.

    • joe_1529

      You’re the one full of crap generalising all ios users’ situation. If other users aren’t experiencing issues like you, then all users with eligible devices would have upgraded by now.

      tired of those Apple troll who even if something is bad ignore it and bash others.

      Every new iOS version seem worst and worst for older devices..

    • John Lofwire

      Sorry but you are wrong.
      the amount of clients using older iphone complaining is impressive more than any previous iOS.

      iphone 7 , 8 and X dont suffer much on iOS 11 its older device that do.

    • Captain H. Morgan

      I have to agree with John. My dad was complaining about how iOS 11 drained his 6s battery but didn’t say the same thing for his iPhone X.

    • John Lofwire

      And 6s is still sold as new so you buy a crippled device out of the box

    • Captain H. Morgan

      Not sure about that..he used the phone for more than 2 years already. He said it was running fine with 10 but not with 11. It doesn’t matter. He got his iPhone X. I just told him to make sure 11.2 is installed and perhaps battery life may improved.

    • John Lofwire

      Sadly it’s also happen to brand new one..

      Battery it’s not as worst as on 6 and 5s.

      But it’s get pretty slow.

    • John Lofwire

      iOS 11 work great on iphone 8 and X. its on older devices that its quite crappy.

      Lots of clients complain of major slowdown , freezes and battery issues.

    • ciderrules

      More lies. iPhone 6S and up run great. Only devices that run slower are those with 1GB RAM (5S and 6).

    • Omis

      Stay on 10. IOS 11 is god awful

    • John Lofwire

      Well sales are going down so Apple need more older iphone user to upgrade… thats how they do it lol.

  • thereasoner

    Almost 10% of iPhone users afraid to upgrade their older hardware because it will slow their devices to a crawl. Looks like some iFans have caught on…

    • FTR_Part_deux

      Can’t say I’ve experienced any slowdowns with my 6s+. It was battery life that was killing it for me. Sure, there were bugs here and there, but i can overlook that. Perhaps the developers had to optimize one device at a time to optimize the battery life…not 100% sure. I even did a clean install on a iPhone 6 and that didn’t help battery life at all.

    • Alex

      i updated to ios 11 with my iphone 6 plus. now its basically paper weight. had to get new phone. got the pixel 2. now i’m happy.

      went from taking a few seconds to open messages, or imessage, to 15seconds plus.
      freshly factory reset, and its still slow… sighs…

    • Captain H. Morgan

      Not sure what you’ve done but I gave my old 6 Plus to my father in law, upgraded it to iOS 11 and still work pretty well.

    • Alex

      nothing much. my mom’s iphone which is identical in specs and model is perfectly fine. but mine is just super slow. i took it to genius bar and they said too bad. things happen. =_=

  • jay

    was it not 92% for iOS 9? 86% for iOS 10?

    • ciderrules

      Not even close.

    • John Lofwire

      Yep its was.

      Newer iOS will continue to loose adoption rate as older iphone owner dont want the planned obsolessence built in those new iOS to make older device slower ect.

    • ciderrules

      No it wasn’t, liar.

      iOS 10 hit 79% on Feb 22nd, 2017 according to Apple. We’ll have to wait 9 more weeks to see where iOS 11 is at (there’s always a spike after Christmas).

      iOS 9 hit 88% on Sep 6th, 2016, just before iOS 10 came out.
