Technology giant Apple is on an iOS update release spree, as the company rolled out the third incremental software in as many weeks.
It is not just a random firmware being pushed out to the Apple devices, as iOS 11.0.3 comes with critical patches that fix several bugs and also most importantly enhance user-experience of iPhones and iPads, which the company lately is falsely accused of slowing the older generation models to make them obsolete and force consumers to go for newer versions.
Here's why you should upgrade to the new iOS 11.0.3 now:
Apple's latest iOS 11.0.3 weighs around 276.3 MB (size might differ with different models) and as per change-log, it fixes the audio and haptic feedback features, which stopped working on iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus upon upgrading to the previous version of iOS 11 series.
It also addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 6s displays because they were not services with genuine Apple parts.
The change-log also had a special note to all owners that they should always repair their Apple devices only at authorised repair store with Apple-branded parts. It has come to notice that non-genuine display used on iPhones compromised visual quality and is more likely to fail and require you to run forth and back to repair shop for replacement multiple.
Besides that, the new iOS 11.0.3 is coming with security patches for certain issues (not specifically defined in the change-log) which were not addressed in the iOS 11.0.
