Apple has started rolling out the new iOS 11.3.1 update for iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices. The update includes bug fixes and performance improvements. The new update also addresses issues where touch input went unresponsive on some iPhone 8 devices as they were serviced with non-genuine replacement displays.

The update weighs about 50MB in size, but it may vary depending on your device. The update can be downloaded over the air (OTA). On your device, head over to Settings > General > Software Update, and then check for update. You can also connect your iOS device to your computer, open iTunes, select your device and then tap on check for updates.

Apple is also testing iOS 11.4 update in the developer and public betas, and it is expected to roll out sometime in May or early June. The update will include Messages on iCloud and AirPlay 2 support. Besides the iOS devices, Apple has also rolled out macOS 10.13.4 update for MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMacs, which includes bug fixes and performance improvements. The tvOS 11.3 and watchOS 4.3 updates have also been rolled out by Apple.

In other news, Apple is reportedly planning to introduce the iPhone SE 2 next month powered by A10 Fusion SoC. The smartphone is expected to come with a glass back, just like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and it is also expected to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack. While some reports hint at the launch sometime in May, other reports indicate that Apple may launch the device at WWDC 2018, which will take place sometime in June.
