Updated on

This iOS 11.0.2 vs. iOS 11 comparison looks at the newest update released by Apple and the previous version of the operating system that came out a few weeks ago.

Apple released the new update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices – iOS 11.0.2. In this article, we are bringing you the content of patch notes against the original software version iOS 11. As you may all know, iOS 11 came with several bugs and issues. Those included battery problems, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth problems and much more. As most of those problems weren’t addressed with the iOS 11.0.1 update, the new update (hopefully) solves the problems. Here’s all you need to know regarding iOS 11.0.2 vs. iOS 11.

Everyone was more than looking forward to the update. Unfortunately, the original iOS 11 came with more errors and issues than one could count. The engineers and other technical support were extremely busy collecting the information about the bugs and issues and going through the tickets by unsatisfied users. You will agree that iOS 11 wasn’t everyone’s cup of cake and many users wanted to roll back to the closest signed version – iOS 10.3.3. That being said, Apple had to act quickly in order to fix those problems and enable their new operating system to be a reliable and secure environment for the users.

iOS 11.0.2 is not a major update. However, it feels major for everyone experiencing the problems it aims to fix. It delivers general bug fixes, improvements to the system, and more importantly, it delivers security-focused enhancements. Based on the patch notes released by Apple, we see that the most joyful users will be the owners of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

We included the screenshot that contains the patch notes regarding iOS 11.0.2 vs. iOS 11.


Users of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus had experienced some unnerving crackling sounds when making phone calls. After thorough testing which included using external speaker and headphones, it was concluded that the problem was in the firmware. The update addresses the problem and ensures the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus can make peaceful calls once they update the software.

Other issues included hidden photos and e-mail related problems, where the users couldn’t open the attachments that were S/MIME encrypted e-mails. Apple also assures the users that there will be security-focused enhancements.

“iOS 11.0.2 includes the security content of iOS 11.”

We hope that Apple will soon address more important bugs that are related to battery life, wireless and Bluetooth connectivity. As for now, iOS 11.0.2 vs. iOS 11 comparison doesn’t significantly differ. Anyhow, after we spend a little time getting used to the new update, maybe we will figure out whether more problems were solved.
