Some Apple users and excited about the latest iOS 11.0.3 updates, while others are saying the 11.1 release cannot come soon enough. Though the notes in the Software Updates suggest that 11.0.3 fixes issues with audio and haptic feedback being experienced by iPhone 7 and 7s users – and also addresses concerns responsiveness in parts in the iPhone 6s, not all users are sharing the same enthusiasm.
iOS 11.0.3 Release Details to Know About
- Jailbreakers have been broken.0.3 will break any jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iTouch.
- Off-brand parts are becoming more frowned upon. Apple has since put out a notice reading, “Note: Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly. Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use Apple parts. See support.apple.com for more information.”
- Don’t expect any security updates this go around. The latest security update was with the iOS 11 release, so many seculate the next updated to security will occur with the 11.1 release – or later. Typically, Apple updates security settings every month or two.
- No new features are available. Nothing fancy here – users have not noticed anything new yet.
Little Issues Fixed, Big Problems Caused
Though minor errors were corrected, a great majority of Apple users and tech enthusiasts are complaining that more harm was done than good with this latest update. Aside from the seemingly common download issues right off the bat, other issues are almost immediately noticeable upon downloading. Battery life issues and instability in social media apps are trending areas of concerns for thousands of Reddit and Twitter users. In fact, some are claiming that Apple is “going downhill,” while other angry users are threatening to make the switch to an Android.
A Ploy to Get Users to Upgrade to the Pricey iPhone X?
Insiders believe this is hardly true, however, long-time Apple users are disappointed in the company’s lack of customer care for iPhone owners of older models. At $1,000 a piece, the latest iPhone X model is not feasible to a wide range of current users, but how long can one use a phone that dies at 35%?
Hope is on the Horizon
There is still hope for those owning the now-deemed “older model’ iPhones. 11.1 is now available for all users – and best of all, battery life issues have been promised to be resolved! After ensuring photos, contacts, notes, etc. have been backed up and that there is enough available storage space, simply tap the Settings icon → Choose ‘General’ → Choose ‘Software Update’ → ‘Download and Install’.
