NikiDroid, 02 Sep 2017I am using iPhone 5s iOS 11 Public beta 8, received update from Sep 1, 2017. So far I use it o... moreBeta 9 is already released. And at that pace, I think there will be another 1 or 2 betas and the GM.
I am using iPhone 5s iOS 11 Public beta 8, received update from Sep 1, 2017. So far I use it overall is good. There were some change in icon apps, like iCloud app (it renamed with Files now, and the shape is like file manager). There also new app name, Feedback. This Feedback app is a place for users report bug, problem, they found along using iOS 11 beta.
Menu Settings also gets little change, has new name menu, named Shutdown, highlighted by blue text. In the assistive touch menu, there are 2 new extras: SOS and restart. They are good offer I think, so users can do restart their iPhone without pressing power on/off buton.
Siri icon is changed too, looks beautiful. Works fine when I tried. First, I upgraded my iPhone from iOS 10.3.3 to iOS 11 Public beta because I got twice random shutdown when I was on the way by motorcycle. It shutdown itself and I should press and hold power on/off + home button together for more than 5 seconds to make the phone wake up.
First version I get from iOS 11 Public beta was 4. It had many problems, like Contact got hang if I highlight one of name from Contacts, Siri didn't work everytime I told on my phone, screen rotation didn't work and Contact search menu didn't appear any suggestion name. But all of these problems had been removed in iOS 11 Public beta 5. After several days the ipdate of iOS 11 Public beta is keep up to date, given by Apple, beta 6, beta 7 and first September this year Public beta 8. I am so excited so far that Apple so support its iOS.
Like I said before, overall the phone works very well, no problem found. Let's what the next update, would it be still iOS 11 beta or final iOS 11.
If you would like to try iOS 11 Public beta, just go to Apple beta program website, sign in with your Apple ID, and click enrolled device from Safari, from there you will download Apple Beta Profile, installs it, after reboot, go to Settings, About, Update software, there will be new update appear. Download it and wait the phone finished booting.
iOS 11 Public beta is 8 version now. I am trying it in my iPhone. So far it is fine and works well. No problem that confuse users, but it may little lack, it is still OK to be used for daily.

My 5s died when it did upgrade a while back, I was texting and suddenly it went totally black? Nothing helped pushed buttons long time but phone was totally dead and it had been charged battery was over 90% left when it did this. It wouldn't even acknowledge my charger it was just dead! I waited a few days using my old phone during this time called support for my phone company who told me to get it repaired. I decided to try the charger one last time and suddenly it worked I could open my phone and push in pin for SIM card. Why it did this is s mystery so wondered if anyone else had similar problem? Since then my phone has worked just fine.
Morning today I receive new update iOS 11 Public beta 7. Have installed it, let's see what the improvements that it brings.

NikiDroid, 26 Aug 2017I think the problem was iOS 10.3.2. When my phone in iOS 11 Beta 5 and 6, so far no random shutdown.Hi Niki
The shutdown issue is on ios 10.3.3
Hopefully the ios 11 arrives rapidly as my friend is having to buy another none apple phone as a lot of the time his phone ringer does not play when calls and texts come in and the battery is poorer since update too.
[deleted post]Did you mean, you sold your iPhone, then someone bought that iPhone, and then one a day you bought your iPhone that had been used by that someone? He might be use his Apple ID when bought your phone, then when he sold it again, he forgot to sign out his Apple ID.

So far iPhone 5s running iOS 11 Beta 6 is good, no problem that makes me mad. There little lag, just a little. Overall is good, typing is fast, but if many apps running, typing would not fast as fast without many apps running. No hang on Contacts, WiFi and 4G LTE network are good, audio also good (haven't try using earphone yet).
