Apple on Tuesday has officially released the next minor update to iOS 11, iOS 11.0.2, which will specifically aim to fix the crackling audio issues for iPhone 8 owners, as well as other behind-the-scenes tweaks and adjustments, along with performance enhancements. As usual, the standard bug fixes are in place as well, which should help with overall use cases for devices running iOs 11.0.2.
Other named issues include photos not showing up, and another bug where some attachments might not appear in encrypted emails. Both of these issues should be addressed and patched in this newest update, which is available beginning today.
Apple’s official release notes state that iOS 11.0.2 includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone or iPad, including:
- 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
- Fixes an issue where attachments in S/MIME encrypted emails would not open
To update, head into Settings –> General — Software Update and then follow the on-screen instructions. From there, the software will download and install. The build number for his release is 15A421.
Apple is also working on the next major update to the platform, iOS 11.1, which is currently seeing beta seeds for developers and public beta testers. That should be released following several weeks of beta seeds, so it may be quite some time before the public launch of that particular update.
