Our transition from iOS 11.3 to iOS 11.3.1 took about seven minutes. The download took less than a minute and the installation process took about five minutes to finish up.

If you're coming from an older version of iOS, say iOS 11.2.6, your download and installation will take a lot longer

We've been using the iPhone 6s iOS 11.3.1 update for several days now and we haven't run into any major problems. Most iPhone 6s users should install it. 

Battery life is holding up. We haven't noticed any abnormal drain during our normal routine. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and cellular data all appear to be acting normal as well. 

The iPhone 6s in our possession feels pretty fast and stable though we have seen occasional choppiness when opening and closing folders. 

We haven't noticed any lag when pulling up the new Control Center or Notification Center and we haven't noticed any random reboots or lockups.

Our core apps, which include Asana, Slack, and Chrome, are running well. We haven't noticed any major problems with their performance. At least not yet. 

Overall, iOS 11.3.1 is looking pretty good on the iPhone 6s. If you're dealing with problems on an older version of iOS 11, you should definitely consider a move to the new firmware.

    After updating my 6s Plus my Battery is at 88% within 10 minutes. When it reaches 40% it just droppes down in 10s till 5%. Put phone on charge in 5 to 10 minuets it’s charged to 40%… take it off charge it last 10min to empty again. Don’t know if I should reset my phone or wait for an update. I have tried hard boot but does not seem to help.
