Apple iOS 11.0.3 update is here, but should you upgrade?Updated: Oct 14, 2017 13:54 IST
Apple on Thursday rolled out another update to the lastest version of the iOS. The update, iOS 11.0.3, is for iPhones and iPad. This is the third minor update since the operating system was released last month. This update includes bug fixes as well as a fix for the non-responsive audio and haptic feedback that a few iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices were facing.
Apple’s official release also “addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 6s displays because they were not services with genuine Apple parts.”
The company has also urged users to get Apple-certified screen repairs from the experts who use genuine Apple parts. “Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly,” Apple said.
The update is about 285.5MB in size and is available for download over-the-air. To update your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > General > Software Update. Ensure your phone has more than 50% battery or is on charging for download.
Just like the last update, a lot of users have come across new glitches on their devices.

Was expecting iOS 11.0.3 to fix battery drain but no respite. Also anyone else facing apps crashing unexpectedly post the update? 🤔— Surbhi Chawla (@i_surbhichawla) October 13, 2017
On Reddit, a user who goes by the name of ‘alexjuuhh’ said, “The whole lockscreen except for the status bar goes blank and in most cases the widgets page goes blank for me as well. I’ve had this happen on iOS 10 a couple of times too.”
As mentioned earlier, this is the third update to iOS 11, which rolled out on September 19. The recent update, which was rolled out on October 4, brought bug fixes, performance improvements, and also a fix for crackling sound on new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The next major update for Apple’s software is expected to be iOS 11, which is currently in beta phase. The next update is expected to bring new Unicode 10 emoji characters and the return of 3D touch multitasking button among other bug fixes.
The Apple iOS 11 is now running on 47% of iOS devices, surpassing the previous iteration which is on 46% of the devices, said analytics firm Mixpanel in its recent report.
