    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.
    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 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

    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

    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 :)

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

    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.

    Wow, they are rolling these fixes out nice and fast.

    Definitely, using Settings in the mean time (at least they didn't cripple that).

    I agree, lots of things to fix, so fix them apple, the 8+ 64 GB is 1000 euros, not cheap for a ****** iOS experience.

    My iPad mini 4 has this problem since iOS 11 and it’s never been serviced.

    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.

    I noticed a regression to pre iOS 10 yesterday when listening to Apple Music and opening the camera (direct to stills, not video) and it paused music. Seriously Apple, get it together or this is my last iPhone. Not worth the price these days for shoddy experience.

    Wipe and do a clean install and you will be fine.

    I think the OP is more concerned about data usage and storage space needed than what exactly is included/changed in the update.

    HA! I was thinking this as well. I didn't think anyone else had noticed how much real-estate they are taking up.

    Microsoft started this trend with the Zune and their mobile OS, and they were raked over the coals by Apple fans. And now...?

    Wait. You think a source code file will be remotely close to 100 mb? No if they are doing proper Object Oriented programming they should have small files. And since it is unlikely that they are modifying pictures/assists for phone crackling and unresponsive screens it’s save to assume they are hitting many objects every large update.

    I wish I could get:

    - the 3D touch app switcher back on my 6S
    - no massive labels on messages and email
    - the ability to shut off wifi and bluetooth in control centre toggles (this makes me crazy the way it works now)
