IOS 11.0.3 Released

Share

Today, iOS 11.0.3 was released, apparently for the sole goal of exterminating a couple of bugs that were affecting users of the Apple iPhone 6s, the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

But one mobile app developer has proved how alarmingly easy these prompts are to replicate, making them a potential security flaw through which devious hackers could steal your precious user credentials. The update, just like the ones before it, fixes some bugs which iPhone and iPad users might have been facing.

Additionally, it fixes an issue plaguing iPhone 6s serviced with non-genuine Apple parts that resulted in unresponsive touch input, according to Apple's release notes.

It was only logical that Apple would release iOS 11.0.3 this week and it did. Apple says, "Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly".

Most iOS users are so used to popups asking for their Apple ID password by now that they just fill it in without a second thought. Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use genuine Apple parts.

"iOS asks the user for their iTunes password for many reasons, the most common ones are recently installed iOS operating system updates, or iOS apps that are stuck during installation", he wrote in a blog post.

It will reduce the screen door effect "We haven't seen this kind of visual clarity in VR before", said Oculus head Hugo Barra. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has officially revealed the company's upcoming standalone VR headset, the $199 Oculus Go .

The main issue, from Apple's side, is that iOS makes it hard to tell the difference between notification sources.

Given the bug fix benefits iOS 11.0.3 brings to the table, I wouldn't really recommend downgrading at all.

The update is now available as a free, over-the-air update for all eligible iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.

To obtain the update, simply go to Settings General Software Update on your iOS device.
