We are heading out again soon.
The iPhone worked just fine on the last trip and the battery held up well.

Do I need to update to iTunes 12.7 if I don't update to iOS 11 before leaving? All I use iTunes for is backing up the phone to the MBP and right now they bother are of the same generation of versions (I don't know what words to use to say this)

I've decided not to update to iOS 11 until we return (if then, if I'm forced to...) due to everything I've read about battery drain from 11.

The phone was most valuable for the day when my camera died (we travel with spares but were far away from the hotel), for taking photos of meals and other stuff when we didn't have the big cameras with us, and for Google translate and looking up some sites online for information whilst on site (we took the leap and traveled without guide book pages which we usually cut out of Lonely Planet and Rough Guide before leaving.

Can I safely avoid these updates till we return? I did update the few apps we use before iOS 11 came out so I should be as up to date there as I can be (unless of course the updates to the apps work with iOS 10.3x)
