Just one thing really, and that's the disabling of wifi in the Control Center. It's not so much a disabling as it is a disconnecting. I want it to turn off wifi, not disconnect me.
What do you guys hate about iOS 11?

I'm not on iOS 11 yet, and probably won't be until I upgrade next year. But I have tinkered with the beta a bit on my sister in law's iPhone. I don't like the new App Store design. They seem to be turning it into a magazine of sorts. I just want to go in, find the app I want, and download. I miss the simplicity of the iOS 5 and 6 App Stores.

iCloud Drive is still there. Make sure it’s toggled on in your iCloud Settings then look for the “Files” app.

Anyone use guided access before?? You used to be able to “override” it by simply restarting the device. That is no longer the case.

One thing I don’t like about that also, and I think this may have been the case before but I just haven’t used it long enough to know, is that you can change the password for this feature without knowing the previous password. I found this out when one of my kids thought it would be funny to change my guided access password.

He is now serving a 24 hour penalty in the electronics penalty box.

I was using two factor authentication before, now with iOS 11, I guess I’ve been updated. On the original, I was able to select the device I wanted the code sent too. Now it sends it to all my devices. I don’t like that.

Should I lose a device to theft and someone captures my Apple ID, they will have access to everything. Anyway to go back to the old way of selecting a device to use?

I don't use it. How are the codes sent? Pop up? Email?

In the old version, when you log in to Apple, you get a window listing all your iOS devices that use your Apple ID. You select the one you have with you and the code is pushed to that device in a notification window. On the new version, when you log in, ALL iOS devices gets the notification and you can allow or deny. On the device you allow access on, it displays the code.

If I lose my iPhone and someone has or gets my Apple ID, then they have control of my account. If I go to log in they could potentially keep denying me access.

It uses iCloud sync now to all devices. You can toggle it off in settlngs >iCloud > Names, Numbers, and Email > remove trusted devices you don't want to receive the codes. Apple suggests having at least 2 trusted devices just in case. This won't affect anything but which devices receive the codes.

Time to wake this thread up. :p
I hate that if I hit Update All when I have multiple app updates, the updates all freeze and I have to restart the phone to get them to update.

Typically with 2 or more updates. Single updates usually initiate right away. Also, if I run them one at a time, they go through. Just that Update All freezes it.

Specific orientation lock control for home screen and apps would be nice. The fact you can’t turn off WiFi or Bluetooth from control center is aggravating too.

I'm not sure why Bluetooth or Wi-Fi cannot be turned off in the control center. The function is there on my iPhone 7 with iOS 11.1.2. Top left corner shows Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on/off toggles
