The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus maybe some of the fastest phones of 2017. However, the new iOS 11 is not quite impressive. It is full of bugs and developers of iOS app trying to fix it with several updates. A few days ago iOS released iOS 11.1 beta 4 to the general public and today released iOS 11.1 beta 5.
We have gone through the release notes and we are not quite impressed what has been changed from iOS 11.1 Beta 4. With this 35 MB update, Apple has brought some minor fixes to the previously known issues in Beta 4.
For those who skipped an upgrade or two, there are some main changes in recent betas that had a noticeable impact. For anyone noticing audio latency or distortion on their second-gen 12.9-in iPad Pro or their 10.5-in iPad Pro, this release should solve your issue. You may have also noticed some inconsistencies with external GPS accessories in previous versions of this Beta since Apple has resolved that issue.
In addition, client certificate-based authentication now works for servers using TLS 1.0 and 1.1. If you noticed your silent notifications — like Mail — were not coming through as frequently in iOS 11.1, you should see an improvement in this update. Apple also fixed an issue with loading webmail clients, stating that the action now behaves correctly.
There’s more fun stuff included in recent betas, including new emojis and the long-requested 3D Touch multitasking switcher. Those two additions alone make upgrading your beta essential, but other solid updates include a Reachability shortcut for notifications and widgets, as well as the return of haptic feedback for incorrect passwords.
In addition, you should notice some new animations when tapping the status bar to scroll to the top of a page, as well as when unlocking your iPhone. Predictive emojis are also improved upon, as you will be presented with multiple options when typing an emoji-compatible word in a message.
We’re getting close to the public iOS 11.1 release. There’s no word as to exactly when the final version will roll out, but we’re betting it will happen sometime around October 27th, when the iPhone X goes up for preorder.
