Apple releases iOS 11.0.3, its fourth update in the last four weeks
For the fourth time in the last four weeks, Apple has disseminated an update to iOS 11. Today, iOS 11.0.3 was released, apparently for the sole purpose of exterminating a couple of bugs that were affecting users of the Apple iPhone 6s, the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The update weighs in at 276.6MB and can be installed on your iOS device by going to  Settings > General > Software Update.

Apple released iOS 11 on September 19th. Since then it has rolled out iOS 11.0.1, iOS 11.0.2, iOS 11.0.3 and the beta version of iOS 11.1.0. The claim to fame for the latter build of iOS 11 is the new emoji that is being added to Apple's existing lineup.

The changelist for iOS 11.0.3, as posted by Apple, looks like this:

  • Fixes an issue where audio and haptic feedback would not work on some iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices.
  • Address an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 6s displays because they were not serviced with genuine Apple parts.

To obtain the update, simply go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iOS device.

It shows that how much buggy and laggy is ios 11, the iphone 6 and belows performs really poor on ios 11 and battery take major impact around 20% less compare to ios 10, optimisation is really poor on ios 11

At least they are actively patching it, when is the last time you saw any Android OEM come out with multiple patches that quick? That is one area that Apple actually kills Android in.

When was the last time an Android update was filled with new bugs?

We have less problems, that's why we have less updates. Apple keeps releasing broken software and hardware thst requires more fixes. But I guess you're blind to facts.

At least they fixed siri in the last beta update for 11.1, the lag and battery drain are still present though, might be slightly better but if it is, I really can't tell smh.

When a new version of iOS comes out you can expect bugs, and it can be worth waiting a few weeks to update. Once you have the newest version of iOS it's best to install the updates.

I've had so many issues with my 7 plus since upgrading to IOS 11. They finally fixed the issue to where my phone would constantly freeze, but now my issue is that the speakerphone will work whenever it wants to. One call it will work, then the next call it won't. I use the speakerphone a lot, so this is very bothersome to me.

Wait for the next update

Lol. Every time I get a new update I get excited because I'm thinking, "Yay, they're finally going to fix the issue!" Then I get a letdown because it doesn't. Finger's crossed for the next one!

QA has really take a hit,IMO, Since the demise of Jobs and the release of Scott F. I can't help but feel that the incarnation of Apple that is emerging now is that of Tim Cooks get it done and "make the share holders happy" as opposed to Jobs " This has to work and look perfect so we can make people want it since they don't know what they want. So, I don't care how long it takes"

Ios is beta testing on all yall. Smh. Update after update. What happened to one update did what it needed. Wait. Guess android can only do that.

Considering 99% of Android phones haven't gotten the latest update AT ALL, I would say both platforms need to work on their update policy. I'm fine with beta testing, I'm used to doing that with other products. What I'm not cool with is being left behind after buying a phone within a year of release.

That’s sheep talk. Most android manufacturers don’t give crap about google updates, especially amazon. They just care about their skin and security updates which they do probably more than Apple does. It’s the retarded media and sheep like you that make such a big deal about google updates that they are forced to do it.

Why are you so angry about crap that doesn't matter? You like being eight months behind, do you. I honestly don't give a s**t. But I'm not shelling out my money for that lack of customer care. Deal with it...

Does it matter if you have the latest OS version as long as it's bug free and works as it should? Most Android phones get the security patches nowadays, whether it's monthly or every other month. Manufacturers thoroughly test their updates before release, unlike Apple, that's why Apple needs to continuously push more and more updates, to fix what they break.

I’ve had zero problems with iOS 11 on both my iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7 Plus. I’m happy to say even my Note 8 has been (so far) performing smoothly. All around I’m a happy camper with my devices.

Consider yourself lucky then. The majority of people I know complain about rapid battery drain, lag/stutter and even complete unresponsiveness. These major iOS updates seem to get worse and worse year after year.

4 patches in a month, and people say iOS isn't buggy. Lol It's screwed up and filled with bugs just like Windows and Android.

I can't speak for Windows (haven't used WP7) in forever, but android has em too. IOS 11 though, is no where near as stable as android 7.1.1 on my Note 8 (that I actually own)^^^^. It makes me wish I could go back to iOS 10.

IOS 11 is a bug infested glitchy mess on my 12.9er. It lags, stutters, and just has stability issues galore. I'm not gonna download this update, till I hear that it's stable. IOS 11 is basically a beta.

Mine was better after 11.0.2, apps rarely force to quit. I think i'll skip this version.

iOS 11.1 beta 2 is still the best version despite being a beta. Less battery drain than any other version, 3D touch multitasking back and a lot of bug fixes... A LOT
