iOS 11 brings tons of new features and improvements such as the all-new and customizable Control Center, powerful multitasking features for iPad, new Files app, AR experiences using ARKit and lots more..
However, as with every major release, iOS 11 also has a few bugs. We haven’t come across any major ones so far but here’s list some of the issues that have been reported in iOS 11:
3D Touch Laggy
Some users are reporting that 3D Touch is laggy on older iPhones like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Suggestion: We haven’t observed any noticeable lag. But it is also a good idea to wait for at least 24 hours as the iOS device is indexing all sorts of things after installing a new update.
iCloud Photo Library
Khamosh reports: After I take a screenshot, it uploads it and then deletes the full resolution image. So I have to redownload it 5 mins later, which is a pain and very slow. It got so bad that I had to turn off iCloud Photo Library on the iPad.
Suggestion: Try clearing up some storage space.
Status bar Colors Invert
Khamosh reports: On the iPad sometimes the status bar colors invert.
Suggestion: You may want to hard reset your iOS device to see if it helps.

So I would suggest checking out our post on how to fix iOS 11 battery life problems to see if the tips help in resolving the issue.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Are Not Completely Disabled When Turned Off in Control Center
One of the issues readers have been reporting is that disabling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth from Control Center in iOS 11 doesn’t seem to disable them completely, they are required to disable it from the Settings app to disable them completely which they found quite annoying.
Apple has confirmed that that is the expected behavior in iOS 11. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are not fully disabled when turned off in Control Center in iOS 11. When you turn off Bluetooth or Wi-Fi in Control Center, the iOS device will immediately disconnect from Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth accessories, but they will continue to be available for what Apple calls important features such as AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, Continuity features like Handoff and Instant Hotpot and Location Services.
