Don't use third parties to fix iPhones and iPads

The latest update was launched less than a month after the much-anticipated iOS 11.3.

iOS 11.4 is still in development, but when it launches, it will likely introduce Apple's new Schoolwork app, AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud.

Update of iOS 11.3.1, sized at 49.5 megabytes provides a major boost to the iPhone systems given that it solves a critical problem whereby it addresses the unresponsiveness of iPhone 8 devices to touch-based inputs. From Settings, tap the General tab and Software Update respectively to unlock the update.

Apple has started rolling out iOS 11.3.1, and you'll want to download it right away if you've ever taken your iPhone to a third-party fix firm for a screen replacement.

In the release notes, Apple noted that the bug that affected some iPhone 8 models after being repaired with "non-genuine replacement displays" had been fixed.

Also alongside the update Apple issues a caution note to its users asking them to refrain from using unauthorized and third party replacement part for their products, as no-genuine parts would detoriate the performance of the device and may reduce its usability. If you need to have your phone repaired or any parts replaced, make sure to visit either an Apple store or an authorized service provider, not just a random third-party agent.

The fix bug affecting the iPhone 8 models surfaced shortly after iOS 11.3 was launched.

Were you affected by the touchscreen issue?

Experts found that a tiny microchip in the screen was behind the bug following the update.

Some iPhone 8 and iPhone X users encountered an error with the last patch, when third-party displays were rendered useless. The company has insisted that it was a bug ever since.
