The Cupertino-based tech firm rolled out its latest mobile operating system with many new features, but the OS also came with a variety of issues. iPhone and iPad owners have reported hearing crackling noises while making a call. Many have already done this just because the sales for the iPhone 8 are not spectacular.
According to Quartz, Apple is looking into the reports that their iPhone 8s are falling apart, or rather blowing up. "Our team is at work on a fix, which will be included in an upcoming software release". Fortunately, Apple has fixed the issue with the latest 11.1 developer beta.
Once again it is unclear if these are isolated incidents or whether this could be a larger problem.
Earlier this week, Apple pushed out the iOS 11.0.1 update but numerous issues still remain. But mind you, since iOS 11 has been out for quite a while now, it's only a matter of time Apple stops signing iOS 10.3.3, shutting down the passage to go back to iOS 10 altogether.
Before you download anything, make sure you have a developer account. It features an all new edge-to-edge OLED display, A11 Bionic chip which brings processing power for AR and VR capabilities as well as facial recognition for unlocking the device.
The update is rolling out to users via an over-the-air software patch right now. RBC analyst Amit Daryanani writes, "We think that this indicates that a portion of iPhone X buyers want to buy the "best" iPhone available despite significantly higher pricing than any other iPhone in the past".
In fact, the iOS 11 caused such a burdensome problem for certain users that Apple released the iOS 11.0.1 last week, which is a further update created to patch an email issue. Apple expedited the bug fix and shipped a minor 11.0.2 bug fix update so that users don't have to wait for iOS 11.1.
