iOS 11 offers big improvements over its predecessor, iOS 10 and is now available to download for your iPhone or iPad. Here, we bring you everything you need to know about iOS 11 including the latest version, details of any problems people are encountering, and the recommended fixes.
Unfortunately sometimes an update to Apple’s operating system can introduce bugs, which we will address below, such as the autocorrect bug that causes the word ‘it’ to be changed to a I.T and ‘is’ to be changed to I.S.
What is the latest version of iOS?
iOS 11 became available to download on 19 September 2017. If you are wondering whether you should install iOS 11, read this. Plus, here’s how to install iOS 11, if you do decide to install it.
We will list the updates to iOS 11 that have rolled out since the main launch, along with any changes they bring. At some point, an update will add Peer-to-Peer payments so that you can pay your friends directly via your iPhone.
We expect an update to iOS 11 will soon address an issue with a new autocorrect bug that changes the word it to I.T. and is to I.S.
Current Beta versions of iOS 11
Apple is currently rolling iOS 11.2 beta versions out to developers and those on the public beta program.
Apple seeded iOS 11.2 beta 4 to developers on 18 November 2017. It is expected to be released within the next month.
iOS 11.2 will include the following features when it launches:
- It includes some interface changes and incremental bug fixes
- It includes Apple Pay Cash, which will be US only initially
- It boosts the wireless charging speed from 5W to 7.5W for the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X
- It also addresses a bug with the Calculator app that meant that the animations that showed the numbers being input ran too slowly, so that calculations such as 1+1+1 could end up showing incorrect answers.
- It also adds the ability to control AirPlay 2 devices via Control Centre, and SiriKit for HomePod support (despite the fact that Apple’s HomePod will be delayed until 2018).
