Apple have just released a third earmarked correction to the bugs in the iPhones, in the form of yet another update to the iPhone or other mobile devices made by Apple (iOS), and that too in a very short span of just three weeks, and it’s causing iPhone users problems. Again.
Following Apple iOS 11’s problematic introduction and the rushed releases of iOS 11.0.1 (which made things worse) and iOS 11.0.2 (which made things even worse), Apple have attempted to rectify the problems with another release of much of the same thing. Though most after having encountered these problems are skeptical about all these hasty releases.
Thus, angry iPhone users have flooded the official @applesupport Twitter account with complaints:
The major complaint and most dominant objection for all three iOS 11.0.3 enhancements are poor performance and heavily degraded battery life.
Last month, Wandera, (a privately held company backed by Bessemer Venture Partners and 83North Venture Capital. They provide customers with a Secure Mobile Gateway (SMG) which compresses mobile data, enforces acceptable usage policies, provides multi-level mobile threat detection by scanning on device and in the cloud, and provides data usage reporting to business organizations to help protect business data) made data analysis across 50,000 iPhones and revealed those who had upgraded to iOS 11 saw battery life to have decreased by an average of 60 per cent. No iOS 11 update since has even cited battery life problems, and apparently Tim Cook is having a very tough time hiding from the distraught users.
This aside there are also plenty of reports of problems with overall stability, Touch ID and Bluetooth.
Furthermore, as was anticipated, the new revision was anticipated to cause a lot of apps to stop functioning properly, ending support for any app that can only run on a 32-bit processor.
Apple is virtually forcing its users to upgrade the devices to 64-bit processors, an obligatory sale of their products. Because new Apple devices run on 64-bit processors, this has always been their sales strategy love to force people to upgrade.
If one wanted to check to see if any of ones apps were affected by the update in Settings – head over to General, then About and click over to Applications.
Most users are flustered and some even have started saying that they miss old Steve Jobs time. People have labelled it ‘a total disaster’ and ‘a joke’, with one Reddit user commenting he missed ‘the Steve Jobs era’. Ouch.
