I haven't made the switch myself, but just want to be sure you know iOS 11 will only run 64-bit apps. So if you have 32-bit applications, they will no longer get installed on iOS 11. It's one reason I haven't updated. It basically says, "Bye bye" to good old, original Alchemy and many games.

As I write this, the latest update (11.0.3) is still a bit sluggish on even two-year-old iPhone 6S phones, so while you can probably install it, you may not gain anything from it--especially if you lose your 32-bit apps in the trade.

Apple asked if I want to update. I pushed the remind me later button.It updated anyway!
