If you were hoping that iOS 11.0.2 was going to fix all the problems with latest version of Apple’s operating system, you’re going to be disappointed.
Last week Apple hurriedly released iOS 11.0.2 last week after being inundated with complaints from users that iOS 11 was playing havoc with their iPhone and iPads.
From apps crashing and random shutdowns there have also been reports of users hearing a crackling sound during calls.
However, the biggest complaint seems to be that iOS 11 is sapping the battery life out of iPhones.

Less than a week after the release of iOS 11, Apple released iOS 11.0.1 to try and fix some of the issues but many problems remained.
A week after that Apple then released iOS 11.0.2 but to only compound user’s misery.
While it reportedly fixed the crackling calls, it hasn’t fixed the biggest problem experienced users: lousy battery life.
If anything iOS 11.0.2 has actually made battery life worse, especially on the iPhone 7 and iPhone SE.
And to make matters worse, Apple has now removed the option to downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 meaning that if you have downloaded iOS 11.02, you are stuck with iOS 11.
Here’s hoping that Apple quickly releases a patch to fix the battery and performance issues.
The only other option is to ensure you have a charger close at hand.
