Apple releases iOS 11.0.2 as iPhone users continue to experience software problems


Some iPhone users have complained about a ‘crackling sound’ after they updated to iOS 11 so Apple has now released a new update to include a fix for the problem.

The problem appeared to reveal itself during FaceTime calls but there were allegedly several other bugs within the new update.

The latest release, iOS11.0.2, offers remedies for a number of issues including ‘hidden’ photos and inaccessible emails.

The company said in statement: “Fixes an issue where crackling sounds may occur during calls for a small number of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus devices, addresses an issue that could cause some photos to become hidden, [and]fixes an issue where attachments in S/MIME encrypted emails would not open.”

Apple have received a number of complaints regarding iOS11 and are currently working on a beta version of iOS 11.1. Complaints have included a fast draining battery and the phone getting ‘stuck on apps’.

The first update was launched earlier this week and some users are already reporting improvements – particularly with battery life.

Wandera, a London based security firm, reported that it took just 96 minutes to completely drain a device from 100%. The researchers found that this was mainly down to the iPhone’s Spotlight app.

Although the iOS 11 is experiencing a few teething problems, like most major software updates, it does bring with it a range of new features that users are impressed by.

However, if you read Reddit or Twitter you will soon appreciate that users are not happy at some of the sacrifices that they are having to make to get the new features.

One Reddit user, Leejoness said: “Ever since I upgraded, launching apps is an absolute chore. 

“Safari, Reddit, ESPN, Yahoo, texts, etc all have a terrible time opening. 

“They either crash back to home, freeze and require closing the app or take well over a minute to load”.

Those of us with iPhones in the Thaivisa office have suffered similar performance woes since installing iOS 1
