Apple Releases iOS 11.0.3 Update With Haptic Feedback and Unresponsive Display Fixes

Apple today released iOS 11.0.3, the third official update to the new iOS 11 operating system. iOS 11.0.3 comes a little over one week after Apple released iOS 11.0.2, an update that fixed an issue causing crackling sounds to come from the iPhone 8 earpiece, and almost one month after the official release of iOS 11.

The iOS 11.0.3 update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings --> General --> Software Update.


Today's update addresses bugs and issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 11.0.2. According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes issues related to haptic feedback and the touchscreen.
- 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 serviced with genuine Apple parts
The iOS 11 update introduces a redesigned Lock screen experience, a customizable Control Center, a more natural Siri voice, a redesigned App Store, new HEVC and HEIF codecs for better photo and video efficiency, and an entirely overhauled interface for the iPad. For more info on all the new features in iOS 11, check out our iOS 11 roundup.

I wish they'd remove the huge hideous app headlines (i.e. "Messages" in Messages and "All Inboxes" in Mail), as well as revert the control center Wifi toggle back to how it used to function

Keep the updates coming. 3 updates in 16 days totaling almost 900MB.


Why do people keep bringing up how many MB an update is? You do realize that a 100MB update does not mean that 104857600 characters in the source code were altered, right? If even one character of code is changed in a file that is 100MB when compiled, the entire 100MB file needs to be updated. In other words, very minor changes can result in very big downloads; and vice versa. You get this right?

For example, if I change one letter in a 5MB Word Document, you still need to download the entire document to get that one change.

Battery fix? Seems not so.

Its been 7 minutes. No way anyone would know. I had zero battery problems with 11.0.2 on my 8Plus and Air 2.

Looking forward to them to continue to update,, has seemed buggy has heck on my 6S+ ... think it's kinda funny they call out unresponsiveness on 6S as due to non genuine parts... mine has never been touched and was bought new and has those issues :-)

Can someone tell me if this runs smoothly and good battery on a 6s. I'm still on iOS 9.3.5 and wondering if I should update now.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Apple is pushing these updates and fixing things... but god damn, THREE point releases in less than a month just screams "iOS 11 wasn't fully baked!"

Hell, who am I kidding, I still run into bugs that have been around since iOS 9. Apple doesn't care anymore.


No it doesn’t. 200+ million users on your new OS in one week finding lots of bugs in a short time is what’s happening. A problem no other vendor in the world has ever experienced since nobody has adoption rates anywhere near what happens with iOS.

I updated and now my third party cable that allowed me to charge the phone and listen with headphones at the same time doesn't work... this is continued deliberate attacks from Apple to make them not work
