iOS 11.0.3 News: Apple Updates Latest OS Anew to Fix iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 Issues

Less than a month after it released the iOS 11, Apple has recently released the latest version of the iOS, the iOS 11.0.3.

As its name suggests, iOS 11.0.3 is the third update to the iOS 11, which was released last Sep. 19. With the arrival of the latest iOS, iPhone and iPad users can now bring back the old features they have lost as the update is all about bug fixes, again.

The issues that the iOS 11.0.3 are expected to deal with include the audio issues and haptic feedback that doesn't work properly in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices. It is also expected to fix the issues of some iPhone 6s displays that don't properly respond to touch in some cases.

So far, all the updates released for the iOS 11 have been in conjunction with security issues or bugs. For instance, the iOS 11.0.1 fixed a security flaw of the new iPhones. On the other hand, the iOS 11.0.2 came a week after the iOS 11.0.1 was released and fixed the crackling audio issues of the new iPhones. With these, some can't help but opine that Apple rushed the release of its IOS 11.

While the three updates to the iOS 11 are nothing more than fixes, it is said that the OS will receive some major updates soon, specifically the iOS 11.1, which is already in its beta stage. Reportedly, this major update will enable the peer-to-peer Apple Pay transactions and usher the 3D Touch app switcher back into the system.

Meanwhile, mobile app developer Felix Krause has revealed on his personal blog that the iOS is vulnerable to phishing. According to Krause's discovery, because iOS constantly requires Apple device owners for log-in details through pop-up dialog boxes, phishers have now found it easy to copy the users' passwords and other details through fake pop-up dialog boxes that deceives users into voluntarily entering their passwords.

As Krause has revealed that the only way to find out if a pop-up dialogue box is legit or fake is to press the home button, explaining that the fake pop-up will close along with the app it appears with once the home button is pressed, will Apple deliver an update to the iOS that will address this security issue too?

Apple fans can only hope so.
