    Thanks a lot!

    On a different note, my iPhone 7 Plus is really draining the battery like I was back on my old 4-yo iPhone 5.
    I have backed-up my iOS10 and would like to return to that, due to the inconvenience this version gives me.

    Got fed up having to charge twice a day in exchange for having a beta iOS, went back to iOS 10.
    Took 2 hours for the restore to complete :unsure: maybe because only photos, etc are the ones backed up in iCloud and then the rest on the MBA.

    Sorry to hear this - I guess YMMV. I thought I had the same battery issue when beta 3 hit the iPhone 7+ for the first time, but after two reboots, battery life is back to normal, at least for me. Question, though, it might be unoptimized (obviously) third-party apps, like Facebook, that are causing the problem.

    Well, you know what? I never really thought of that (rebooting the phone). Might be the cure to it, who knows.
    It also didn't help that I don't let my phone shut down and die because of the battery being empty.

    Oh well, i guess i'm just going to wait for the public release on Sept/Oct.

    On the day that I installed public beta 2 on my 7 plus, I dropped my phone pretty badly. Physically, it's just a small nick in the red paint, but I worried that it might have damaged something internally because my iPhone was draining badly (50% in just 3 hours while on standby), it would run hot even when not plugged in, and it was soooo slow to charge.

    Apps were crashing along with the OS. I would hold both Power and Volume Down button multiple times a day to reboot the system. Even a reset all settings and a deletion of all non-essential apps didn't help.

    In order to isolate whether it was a hardware or software issue (it was so frustrating, I couldn't wait any longer for Beta 3), I reverted to 10.3.3 and restored my pre-iOS11 backup.

    Phew, everything was back to normal.

    On the same day I did this, Public Beta 3 came out.

    So, upgrade junkie me went ahead with yet another iOS11 update. This time though, I set it up as a new iPhone and manually selected apps to install. I relied on iCloud to sync my data (iMessage data included!) and restore 3rd party app data.

    Everything is good now. I like iOS11.

    As repeatedly advised by Apple, it really isn't advisable to install early beta software on your primary phone. But that's why why I do it--because they advise against it. haha

    Can iOS 11 be installed at iPhone SE?
