Apple Released iOS 11.0.1: What’s New?

Updated on

Only one week after official releasing of the new operating system, Apple’s iOS 11.0.1. update kicks in. Reportedly, the new software update should fix issues on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and deliver performance enhancements. Surprisingly, Apple released the update without any prior beta testing, as it wasn’t released the official update to developers to test. Here is what we know about iOS 11.0.1.

The new update refers to the bugs and issues and fixes them while delivering minor security improvements for iOS 11. The original iOS 11 brought a lot of new functions like Do Not Disturb While Driving mode, the new Files app, document scanning in Notes, Live Photos editing, new multitasking functions exclusively for the iPad, payment integration in Messages and smarter version of Siri. Compared to those changes, the iOS 11.0.1 isn’t equipped with anything major, except the more than necessary fixes, given that iOS 11, aside from the great features, came with a lot of unnerving bugs.

If you used iOS 11 in its original release, you probably noticed that you couldn’t fully disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when attempting it from Control Center. Users were bothered with Battery draining too fast kind of issues and even the issue with syncing email. Apple admitted that occasionally there is an error message that says “Cannot Send Mail. The message was rejected by the server.” This problem mainly occurs if your email is originating from Microsoft Outlook Express, Office 365 or an Exchange Server 2016, which runs on Windows Server 2016.

Certainly, it is worth to mention Wandera’s notice in battery life vastly dropping since the update of iOS 11. In an experiment they ran last week, Wandera highlights that they tested 50,000 iPhone and iPad users and got some astonishing results. The iOS 11 uses twice as more battery life than iOS 10. It is, also important to note devices were tested on moderate to heavy use.

What does the iOS 10.0.1 update come with?

The release notes of iOS 11.0.1 don’t contain a lot of information. Notes only say that the following update “includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone or iPad.” We can cross fingers and hope that the update will fix the unreasonable battery life decay, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth problems and email issues as well.
