Apple Releases iOS 11.0.3 with Fixes for Haptic Feedback, Display Issues

Today, iOS 11.0.3 was released, apparently for the sole objective of exterminating a couple of bugs that were affecting users of the Apple iPhone 6s, the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

All the iOS 11 updates issued so far have been in response to security issues or bugs. iOS 11.0.1 fixed a security flaw, and came a week after iOS 11.0 came out. iOS 11.0.2 fixed a crackling audio issue on the new iPhones, and was out a week after that. With the new update comes an option for users that they can downgrade back to a previous version of iOS that is now being signed.

According to the reports, the update will bring back the 3D Touch app switch gesture. Apple said 11.0.3 addresses a haptic feedback problem with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, as well as issues with the iPhone 6s touchscreen.

Note: Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly. Once again, this update includes no new security fixes - none have been issued since iOS 11.0.

If you input your password into one of the fake boxes, the attacker could steal it and use it to access your credit card information. Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use Apple parts.

Some new additions included a redesigned Lock screen and Control Center, Siri improvements, more efficiency video and photo codecs, and a slew of UI updates for iOS on the iPad.

The update is now available as a free, over-the-air update for all eligible iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. As they fix significant issues, however, they are no less important.

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