Just a week after the exciting official launch of iOS 11, Apple has already released an upgrade and for many users this update couldn’t come soon enough. After the launch, many users were unimpressed and were experiencing issues and glitches in the software. They started flooding social media and Apple support and expressed their distaste for iOS 11.
After the initial launch users were complaining of serious issues with email and battery life. There have been studies done that prove iOS 11 does drain users batteries faster than iOS 10. According to security research firm Wandera, early updates of iOS 11 took an average of one hour and 36 minutes on average to drain iPhones completely, compared to the iOS 10 update, which took about four hours.
Users were also underwhelmed with the software update for iPhone because they felt it was mostly for iPad users. There were not many changes for the iPhone and no major design upgrades, aside from the charging dock. On the other hand, for many iPad users, this update brought a lot of enhancements and users seem pretty content.
Basically iOS 11 has problems, so Apple rushed out a fix. But is 11.0.1 fixing the problems or creating more?
With the release of iOS 11.0.1 update, users are still complaining of battery life, 3D touch lag, app crashes, lock screen freezes, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections dropping and overall system instability. Many technology gurus are warning to stay away from the update until Apple comes out with another one because there are still so many issues.
Apple has the first beta of iOS 11.1 which can be expected to be a much bigger update that will bring more fixes, new features and lay the ground for the launch of iPhone X.
