I started using let, stopped due to users experiencing issues on their iPads. Still too new. Certainly not introducing babel in an application for some nearly trivial differences in how code runs.

That’s why you should use Babel

If you wanna use es6 in your production code the only real choice is to use a compiler.
If you don't think setting up a compiler is worth then you don't really need es6

that's interesting, so you still have to use var?

Yeah, not that I consider it a hardship. Safari on iOS <= 9.3 (2015-2016) doesn't support let.
