    On stable or beta? What problems? What have you tried to solve the problems? Wiped some apps data? Reset some settings? Ever heard about recommendations about factory reset after a major version upgrade and doing a CLEAN install (setup as an new device)? It's a very common recommendation regardless of brand. And most often it helps when and if the problem is caused BY the upgrade and is not by lack of support for 11 by the apps themself. Despite sounding like a lot of work you often get a much better functional system way faster than just waiting on stuff to get solved by themselfs (if ever at all). It might even be a shortcut compared to waiting.

    I often see the pattern every year (on several brands).... Upgrade. Failures and complaints. Apps lacking new OS support (especially on brands that adopt an new OS early). Everything is blamed on the upgrade regardless of the cause and origin of the issue. Users rollback in disappointment and don't try a factory reset and clean install first or THINK they do a clean install but do full data recovery both via setup process and a full Oneplus Switch backup with risk of importing back the issue they wanted to get rid of and then again wipe via an rollback... Only to upgrade later when a new update comes only to once more get upgrade related issues. And the cycle repeates until one of the following happens. The upgrade goes smoothly due to improvments of the OS itself or the actual apps that caused issues to begin with has updated and acts better after an upgrade. Or the user actually use an proper wipe.
    Early using an new OS has some downsides. Does not matter much what brand. A ton of issues can be found on upgraded Pixels too. Pixel users whine and rollback too...
