IOS 11.3.1 rolls out with iPhone display fix

Apple's new App Store design can boost…

While Apple at the time refused to comment on the debacle, it on Tuesday pushed out iOS 11.3.1 to rectify the screen unresponsiveness. If you've got a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can download the update by going into Settings General Software Update on your device.

Apple has designated macOS 10.13.4 version as Security Update 2018-001.

The iOS 11.3.1 update is nowhere as major a software build as the iOS 11.3 package that was created to enhance the user experience by letting users toggle performance throttling and view battery health. Following a brief investigation, it was found that only those units of the iPhone 8 were affected that underwent a third-party display fix. The bug wasn't revealed officially, but some affected users reported its existence weeks after the release of the update.

Despite issuing the fix, Apple has reiterated that customers should not go to anyone other than Apple for screen repairs.

Also, Apple has released the iOS 11.3 last month after doing a prolonged beta test which started back January.

As discovered by Motherboard, several Phone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus users complained about the display becoming unresponsive after installing the iOS 11.3 update.

In a separate note, Apple warns that non-genuine replacement displays can compromise visual quality and may not even work as they should. "Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use genuine Apple parts", the company notes in the changelog of the iOS 11.3.1 update. A particular bug was causing some iPhone 8 models fitted with third-party display units to become unresponsive to touch. Details about the security content can be viewed by visiting the official support page.

Prior to today, Apple iPhone X users who wanted to use the Amazon Alexa app had to deal with ugly black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.
