On 11 Oct 2017, Apple released the third update of iOS 11 i.e. iOS 11.0.3. Although it doesn’t bring major changes or new features but has many improvements. This update serves iPhone 5 and above models, iPad Air and above, iPad mini 2 and above. This update also works well with iPod Touch 6. Notifications have been sent to all the compatible devices automatically. But if you somehow didn’t get the notification to update, you can trigger it manually by going to the Settings > General > Software Update. Take a proper backup of your device before updating it in order to avoid a situation when something goes wrong. The size of the update varies from device to device. Generally, this point release is about 300 MB and would be bit heavier for bigger devices and lighter for smaller devices.
The iOS app Development companies were waiting for some new features but as iOS 11.0.3 is a minor release hence there are minor issues fixed only. The iOS 11.0.3 mainly resolves the issues related to audio and haptic feedback for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It has even resolved the issue of unresponsive displays with iPhone 6s. This also goes for the iPhone devices which were not serviced with genuine parts.
This new update tries to offer fixes to the issues which are there since the launch of iOS 11 but this issue doesn’t resolve the other peripheral issues faced by iPhone users like the major issue related to shorter battery life and the issue of getting so many notifications at the time of reboot of iPhone. Hence it looks like this new update focuses more on the low issues and there has nothing been done to fix issues which are harder comparatively. We can expect the solution to these issues in the future update of iOS by Apple.
If you are using iOS 10 then you can see lots of new things but if you are upgrading from iOS 11 to iOS 11.0.3 then you won’t find many changes as even the security features remain the same.
In conclusion, we can say that there are small changes for the users from the update point of view but there is not much for the iOS app developers as it won’t make any difference on the development front. We expect the major release of iOS 11.1 will bring major changes and updates in the development process including updates related to security and utility. It looks like iOS 11.1 will be a fresh start for iOS 11 and will offer new features for users as well as for the developers.
