Weird, like more people talking about iOS11 in iPhone section.

But iOS11 should supposedly be more exciting for iPad users, looking forward, although I tried the beta on my old iPad 2017 previously for a short while only without being able to fully try everything.

Anyone has issue with the camera app where you are able to take photo using the back camera but when you switch to the front facing camera it will hang.

Seems like after updating to ios 11 i have this issue.
