iOS 11.3.1 has been released. Solves a very big problem on iPhone 8 models
Apple released last night a supernatural software update for iOS. This is about version 11.3.1, especially for iPhone users, as it addresses one of the major issues that some of them encountered just a few weeks ago when iOS 11.3.0 was released. This is not the first time that Apple "spoils" something intentionally and then fixes it in a smaller update.
In addition to solving the small issues we might encounter at the interface level, the iOS 11.3.1 main function is to repair the functionality of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models that replaced the display with a non-original piece. They worked well before the release of iOS 11.3, and after receiving this version, touch functionality ceased to work. Thus, updating for these devices can not be done directly on the phone, but only via a computer.
In description of update 11.3.1, Apple warns users about the doubtful quality of unofficial parts and urges users to repair their phones only in authorized centers where the same original parts as the original ones are used. In recent years, for devices that had the changed display, Apple completely disables TouchID. This solution was a compromise, since initially the phone no longer wanted to start without the original parts
iOS 11.3.1 is now available as an OTA package that can be installed directly from your phone. It is compatible with all iOS 11-compatible devices, from iPhone 5S up to iPhone X and iPad Air and more.
