IOS 11.3.1 released with third-party iPhone 8 display fix

IOS 11.3.1 released with third-party iPhone 8 display fix

In addition to improving the security of your device (as virtually every iterative update does), iOS 11.3.1 also addresses an issue that has caused some iPhone 8 devices to become unresponsive to touch input "because they were serviced with non-genuine replacement displays". Version 11.3.1 is quite small, but the update contains some important bug fixes and performance improvements. The users of iPhone 8 who used third-party fix services for their displays had seen that the device gets unresponsive after updating to iOS 11.3.1.

iOS 11.3.1 is available to download now on all devices that are compatible with iOS 11. The reason, according to Apple, is these faulty iPhone 8 devices were serviced with non-genuine replacement displays.

Earlier this month it was revealed that users who have had their iPhone 8's screen replaced by shops that aren't Apple Stores or authorised retailers have been experiencing difficulty using their phones since installing iOS 11.3. The screen issue was not noticed until a few weeks after the rollout of the iOS 11.3 update.

This could have been a major drawback for Apple when it comes in terms of customer satisfaction just after the Battergate issue which is still to get its final judgement. The update can be downloaded over the air (OTA). You can also apply the update through iTunes by connecting your iOS device to a computer.

At the end of March Apple released iOS 11.3 into the wild following a lengthy development phase and many beta builds. Designated as Security Update 2018-001, the update fixes a memory corruption issue that could provide extra privileges to some applications. Unless you are iPhone 8 user who made a change to your display, there is not much else to see.
