Apple Issues New Fix for Troubled iOS 11
Apple has released iOS 11.0.2 to fix yet more bugs found in its weeks-old iOS 11 operating system.

(CCM) — Apple has rushed out yet another update to its bug-riddled iOS 11, just a week after the previous bug-fixing update. iOS 11.0.2, released on Tuesday, fixes a flaw in the software which causes a crackling noise during some calls made on brand new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus handsets. It also fixes another flaw which resulted in some photos in iPhones' and iPads' camera rolls being invisible, and it squashes a bug which made it impossible to open some attachments in S/MIME-encrypted emails. It is not yet known whether the update also fixes the poor battery life that many users have reported since upgrading to iOS 11.

Last week Apple was forced to release the iOS 11.0.1 update after it was discovered that Microsoft Exchange and users running iOS 11 were unable to synchronise their email accounts or send email using the operating system's own Mail app. It also introduced performance improvements for various apps and made some minor fixes to the Camera and Photos apps to make them work more effectively with older iPhones.

Apple has already begun testing a version of iOS 11.1 — yet another update to the problem-hit operating system — which is expected to be released in the near future.
