Apple’s iOS 11.0.1 Causing Problems More Than With iOS 11?

The latest version of iOS 11.0.1 now out in the public domain starts causing problems. Apple should take care of it immediately, or it will grab all the battery performance of iOS 11.

To its credit, Apple recognized this by rushing out iOS 11.0.1 as a fix. But many iOS 11 upgrade guides warned users to hold off as serious email and battery life issues arose. In fact, the new mobile operating system for iPhone and iPad, iOS 11.0.1 has started causing more problems that is is fixes…

Both Reddit and Apple’s official @applesupport Twitter account are currently discussing about the complaints on Apple’s latest iOS update. Furthermore it’s not just one thing with users levelling performance issues (notably 3D Touch lag), battery life reduction, app crashes (especially Apple Music, including lost libraries), lock screen freezes, Bluetooth and WiFi connections dropping and overall system instability.

One thing is sure that Apple’s iOS 11.0.1 is here now and it brings both fixes and problems.

So frustrating? As anybody’s phone start freezing 10+ times a day and then restarting. But iOS 11 my phone has been freezing a lot and with iOS 11.0.1 update it’s doing it even more….

Another report states that “My Home screen shutters. 3D Touch drops frames. Scrolling through photos drops frames as well. Feels like I’m using a 20 year old phone. iPhone 7 btw.” According to this source.

“iOS11 issues so far, it has almost bricked my phone: Spotify stops being shown on the lock screen, reboot fixes then occurs again after a few hours. Alarm is silent when phone is in silent mode, no fix yet. Volume control doesn’t work when locked or display, reboot sometimes fixes. Remove aux cable and no sound via phone until app is ended. Multiple apps don’t open properly, freeze on launch screen for 20 seconds or more” – source

Likewise, there are many issues showing their pace with iOS 11.0.1 installation, which has made the device a lag machine. All the 3rd party apps works slow. Apps clear their cache now on their own 100 times a day.” Source

“My iPhone battery percentage just went 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 As quickly as your read that. WTF @AppleSupport” – source

“All five family calls are hit & miss since iOS 11 & 11.0.1. Hard reset seems to clear, but who has time when call is urgent.” – source

I can confirm that iOS 11.0.1’s promised fix for Outlook and Exchange-based email accounts does work very well and users can send messages again. Then again if you’re looking for a bright side to iOS 11.0.1 there is one aforementioned.

The only flaw that appears to be more important is that Apple iOS 11 introduced severe battery drain and it has got worse for many users in iOS 11.0.1.

Final thought. If you have a perfectly functioning iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on iOS 10 or even iOS 11, it’s strongly suggested you hold off upgrading right now. While Apple began testing iOS 11.1 earlier this week that will take almost four to six weeks before launch. So it looks inevitable that another emergency ‘minor point’ release (iOS 11.0.2) full of bug fixes will be required before then.

Essentially the timing of these problems couldn’t be worse for Apple. While the iPhone X has rightly caught the public’s interest, it is expensive and will only be available in limited quantities until March/April 2018.

Currently, Apple’s focus is on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, showcasing the extensive capabilities of iOS 11 which is failing to the do the basics of being fast, reliable and power efficient. Although the two new iPhones launched to reduced sales and speaker problems. A Fix For Static Noise Problem Affecting iPhone 8 Earpiece confirmed

Apple iOS 11.0.2 can’t come soon enough…..!
