- Apple has released iOS 11.0.3, the third update since iOS 11 release
- iOS 11.0.3 addresses two issues that some users were facing
- Apple has not addressed several other issues users have reported
Apple on Wednesday released iOS 11.0.3, the third update since it released iOS 11 to the public last month. Being a point update, iOS 11.0.3 doesn’t bring any new features, but it does offer several improvements. It is meant for the iPhone 5s and above models, iPad Air and above, iPad mini 2 and above, as well as the iPod touch 6th generation.
iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 users who were facing audio and haptic feedback should see the problem resolved after downloading and installing the iOS 11.0.3 software update. The company says it has also addressed an issue with iPhone 6s where some displays were unresponsive because they were not serviced with genuine parts.
The company however warns that non-genuine replacement displays many have compromised visual quality and may not be fully functional. In comparison, Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use genuine parts.
If you’re running iOS 11, iOS 11.0.1, or iOS 11.0.2, then your device is eligible for the free update to iOS 11.0.3. You can access the update from Settings -> General -> Software Update. You should make sure you are on a Wi-Fi connection, and back up your device before proceeding.
Even as Apple attempts to fix some of the issues people are having since installing iOS 11, there are still some known issues that the company is yet to address. Many users have complained about shorter battery life and an issue where they get a ton of text notification when they reboot the device. Apple has not acknowledged either of the issues yet.
If you have not upgraded to iOS 11 yet, you might find the new customisable Control Centre, and the redesigned lock screen experience interesting enough. The company has also redesigned the App Store and Siri now has a more natural voice. Additionally, iOS 11 brings support for HEVC and HEIF codecs that use improved algorithms to compress the file size of videos and images.
