The latest iOS version of mobile platform is finally here. But there are many issues at first and a bit confused about the iOS 11 firmware. The Control Center do not work as how the user want it to, and other problems already there for fixing and lot of things.

Apple’s iOS 11 is out, and it’s packed with new and exciting features. To say, two are the “panic button” and a feature known as “do not disturb while driving”. There’s a new feature in the Settings app, the “Emergency SOS”. Sure, there are plenty of iOS 11 features getting all the attention now. But there are many issues and flaws as well.

Otherwise, what we give is an overview of security enhancements and how that latest version protects the user and their data. Here are some of them which we’re going to look at the scurity improvements in iOS 11.

Most users actually really only find themselves being concerned with features and functionality. With iOS 11, there are a ton of new improvements that are available to hardware owners to play around with. Not only they can physically interact with and see on display. But there are also a number of important security enhanced improvements that should hopefully make iOS a safer place for everyone, and how they actually using the device/hardware.

As an example, Apple has been made aware of a vulnerability in the iBooks app which affected iPhone 5 and later, iPad Air and later, and iPod touch sixth-gen, which would allow malicious individuals to produce infected iBooks. Patched now with the release of iOS 11 for all affected devices.

Not only that, Apple has also taken the advantage of information provided by Kiki Jiang and Jason Tokoph to patch an issues in iMessage affecting iPhone 5s and above, iPad Air and higher, and iPod touch sixth-generation. This bug could be used to force the hardware to process a maliciously crafted image to cause harm to the device.

Tim Cook and his team executives very much focused on the feature additions in iOS 11 firmware and updates for release later in the year. What will likely be the key marketable improvements. Apple took its time between iOS 11 announcement and launch to patch bugs and vulnerabilities in Mail MessageUI, MobileBackup, Exchange ActiveSync Safari, and multiple issues discovered in WebKit by Oliver Paukstadt of Thinking Objects GmbH, Frans Rosén of Detectify, and Anton Lopanitsyn of ONSEC.
