Apple released iOS 11.3.1 update with fix for third-party display repairs yesterday. The update brought fix to an issue reported after the release of iOS 11.3 where consumers complained the displays repaired by third-party dealers stopped working after installation of the update. While the release of iOS 11.3.1 fixes a known bug, it still fails to fix an older issue. Also Read - iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 heading to the stores soon, launch event still rumored on October 13

According to Forbes, the update does not bring fix to an older problem dubbed as audio skipping. The issue reportedly distorts and skips sound during music playback, podcasts and even while making phone and FaceTime calls. The iOS 11.3 users claim the problem is so grave that it makes some of these applications almost unusable. Most iPhone users have been found tweeting directly at @AppleSupport handle.

There are even claims that Apple is telling users iOS 11.3.1 update secretly fixes this problem. It is not clear whether the update indeed fixes these known issues but the changelog for iOS 11.3.1 does not include any official mention of this issue. Some iPhone users are also noting that a hard reset using iTunes does fix this issue but it is not a proven or proper fix. Apple is yet to comment whether it knows of this issue and when it issue a formal fix for the audio problem.

Apple is expected to unveil iOS 12, the next major update to iOS at WWDC in June. The reports suggest the new version of iOS won’t a lot of big ticket features and Apple is instead focusing on improving overall usability and stability of its mobile operating system. There are also reports that Apple is more focused on bringing major system level improvements and security enhancements this time as opposed to major consumer facing features.

Axios had reported that Apple is planning to not release all major features at one go with the launch of iOS 12 at WWDC in June. It rather plans to release some elements of iOS 12 features as part of consequent updates. The move is aimed to water down some of the known issues with major release in the past. Despite issues and bug fixes, the adoption of iOS 11 has reached 76 percent, which is way better than the Android camp.
