Apple has promised to fix some bugs and improve the performance through the newest iOS update.
Cupertino based conglomerate Apple has rolled out iOS 11.3.1 update to fix a display issue of the iPhone 8 that was making the touch functionality unresponsive on some devices.
In comparison, the majority of Android installs (26%) are on Marshmallow, which first debuted back in 2015, followed by Nougat at 23%, which debuted in 2016. The bugs were spotted after the release of the iOS 11.3 update.
Version 11.3.1 is really small, totaling around 34 to 49 MBs on some Apple devices.
Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly. Users can download the update by launching Settings General Software Update.
iOS 11.3.1 is a 44.5MB download over-the-air (OTA) for iPhone X. On iPad Pro (9.7-inch), it's 33.5MB. "Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use genuine Apple parts", the company notes in the changelog of the iOS 11.3.1 update.
Some iPhone 8 and iPhone X users encountered an error with the last patch, when third-party displays were rendered useless. According to Apple, these third-party parts are to blame for the difficulties experienced by iPhone 8 users. As always, let us know in the comments how the update went on your Apple device. Designated as Security Update 2018-001, the update fixes a memory corruption issue that could provide extra privileges to some applications. The update will include Messages on iCloud and AirPlay 2 support.
That doesn't mean Apple isn't still exceedingly profitable: The iPhone X and its premium price captured 35% of all smartphone profits in Q4 2017, and Apple made 90% of all smartphone profits over that time.
