Apple on Wednesday unexpectedly released an update for iOS 11, which Apple says fixes audio issues and a bug that caused some devices to be unresponsive to touch. The update brings users up to version iOS 11.0.3.
To be clear, this isn’t the update that includes new emoji and (possibly) Apple Pay Cash. That update, iOS 11.1, is expected to hit sometime next month to coincide with the iPhone X’s launch. This is Apple’s third housekeeping update since iOS 11 was made available on September 19.
Here are the official release notes for today’s update:
iOS 11.0.3 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad.
- Fixes an issue where audio and haptic feedback would not work on some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices
- Addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 6s displays because they were not services with genuine Apple parts
Note: Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly. Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use Apple parts. See support.apple.com for more information.
