Apple releases iOS 11.0.1: Bug fixes and general improvements

Apple is already pushing out the very first incremental post-iOS 11 software update out, headed to all compatible iPhones and iPads to squash some bugs and polish certain things up. iOS 11.0.1 is here, rolling out in two builds - 15A402 for non-A11 chips and 15A403 for the newest iPhones. 

The update arrives with a rather non-descript changelog: bug fixes and improvements is what this one officially fixes, and nothing else is said.

However, devoted users have quickly nibbed that one out - a particular bug pertaining to the Exchange mail server has been dealt away with. Many users report that homescreen animations now feel faster and rather similar to iOS 10's animations though this could be placebo. 

To get the update, just head to Settings > General > Software update, and snag it manually. If you don't see it but have been on the iOS 11 public or developer beta, make sure to delete the beta profile from your iPhone, restart the device, and then you should see the update available.

Hope this doesn't create any more bugs.

At least they solved the mail issue concerning Office365 & Exchange quickly. A lot of users were complaining about this

Hope this clears up some of the UI lag I've been experiencing on my iPhone 7.

Well, the iPhone 8 Plus lost to the Note 8, in the Phonebuff speed test, mostly due to RAM management issues, which were quite unexpected judging by the 7 Plus. And people are saying the 8 Plus is also slower than the 7 Plus (quite evident by EverythingApplePro speed test, though his 8 Plus could be faulty). Plus, the new iPhones are also said to have lag, bugs, and quick battery drains. Which have now become a staple for every new iOS update (and people claim iOS is so optimized). I don't see such issues when a new Android flagship is released, such as the Note 8 or the Oneplus 5. But Apple always takes a month or so to optimize its new iPhones, making them lose in earlier speed tests. I figure Apple doesn't really know how to take advantage of that monstrous A11 in the iPhone. Maybe give some of those Bionics to Oneplus and see how nicely they make use of them. Clearly iPhones this year aren't amazing in any major way, in comparison to Android flagships. If you want excellent excellent performance in day to day tasks, get yourself an iPhone 7/Plus running 10.3.3, Oneplus 5, or a Note 8. But not an iPhone 8/Plus. Atleast not until Apple wakes up and realises how bad iOS issues and its animations lag is.
