Here’s a nice little surprise for those of you with iOS devices who are keeping up with the latest updates. It looks like the iOS 11.0.3 update frees up a little bit of storage space on your device. Nothing was mentioned in the changelog when Apple released the iOS 11.0.3 update but it seems like they managed to save some room somewhere with the new version of iOS.
The iOS 11.0.3 update is, of course, the third small update to iOS 11 since Apple pushed the newest major version of their mobile operating system to the public last month. With each update Apple has fixed a few small bugs here and there to help users get the most out of their device. However, there are some issues that are still bugging users even after the third update to iOS 11. The biggest complaint being poor battery life which has yet to be acknowledged by Apple or fixed with any updates.
The new iOS 11.0.3 update aimed to resolve an issue where iPhone 6S users were having trouble with the touch response on their device. Plus, there was also an issue where audio and haptic feedback was not working for some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users. However, there was no mention of storage improvements within the update. Of course, Apple doesn’t always list out every minor change they make when they release an updated version of their software. The improvements are so minor that most users won’t even notice and, as quickly as the appeared, they could disappear once Apple pushes out another update.
So, how much extra storage space can you get after the iOS 11.0.3 update? About 250MB. Like I said; it’s a pretty minor improvement. There likely won’t be parades in celebration of this extra storage space. Still, it’s nice to see that Apple was able to find something in iOS 11 that could be cut or reduced to help save some storage space for users. If they can do this a couple more times throughout the life of iOS 11 then users could have an extra 1GB of storage space before they know it! Yes, that’s probably wishful thinking but I’m trying to keep things positive here.
